VOLCOM 2012 EUROPEAN WILD IN THE PARKS CHAMPIONSHIPS

Volcom Stone 2012 European Wild In the Parks Championships Sevilla, Spain

On Saturday, October 6th, after the summer tour all over Europe, Volcom Stone’s Wild In The Parks celebrated its European Championships in Sevilla, Spain at the Plaza de Armas skatepark. This skateboarding contest has become a European benchmark over the years and once again was stocked full of action under the bright sun of Sevilla.

Around 90 competitors made the trip from all around Europe (Czech Republic, Finland, Germany and even Greece to name a few countries) to find themselves competing for the European WITP champion title. The contestants were greeted by summer weather, a really fun skatepark and tons of locals coming to check the action.

Roberto Aleman, Mark Appleyard, Aaron Suski, Javier Sarmiento and Axel Cruysbergs were our special guests to judge all the tricks that went down on the 3 areas of the skatepark. They also were seen signing autographs and destroying the course in between heats to the delight of the audience.

In the 14 and Under division, the kids did not disappoint. Little Oskar from Norway had millions of tricks in his bag and took the 3rd place while Ville Wester represented Copenhagen in good style finishing up in second place. Who won? Tiago Lopes from Portugal, he killed it all day, had a bunch of groupies and fan club, landing almost all his tricks first try (double flip down the blocks or boardslide flip out on the down rail as example). He went home with a huge travel bag full of stuff and 500€ prize money….

The 15 and Over division final was a war with loads of tricks going down on the three areas. Bruno Senra (last year 14- winner) was a standout in the qualifications with such tricks as kickflip crooks down the hubba, but he didn’t end up making it to the podium, as well as other kids killing it such as George Poole. In the end, Matisse Blanc from France took second place, landing full speed treflips over the big gap. Belgium skaters were fully represented with Jonathan Vlerick taking the second place and Simon Duprez taking the win killing it all day. He is now 500€ richer and won so much Volcom gear that he had to ask for some help to carry it all away.

Then the open division was the icing on the cake, so much action went down that you had to be there to experience it. There are so many talented skaters in Europe, mad props to all of you. From full speed noseblunt slides of Frenchman Pierre Hoarau to massive hardflips from Portuguese Jorge Simoens, bs 360 on demand from Gard Hvaara, just to name a few. The skatepark got destroyed properly during the finals. We need to mention here local Carlos Neira was on fire, getting the support of the audience. Back to back on a broken board, he landed a boardslide, a nollie flip down the stairs and a back lip ! He was awarded the Electric hype of the day, hyping also all the locals! Thaynan Costa from Portugal took the 3rd place and 500€ in style (switch heelflips down the gap, hardflip backlip on the rail etc…); Christian Estrada from Spain was tech and gnar at the same time and destroyed everything in his path into the 2nd place on the podium and 600€. The Open division 2012 Champion is Octavio Trinidade from Austria who impressed the most the judges.

Prizes were given, product toss went mad, and almost everyone went home with something. Special thanks a lot to all the skaters and parents who made the trip, sometimes pretty far (driving all the way from Germany as for example). And also we need to thank to everyone that help run this event smoothly: the staff, SVQ Sevilla Skate Club, Impact Sea, Electric and Jart for the extra prizes and Burn for the free drinks and the PA system. Thanks also to everyone who helped run this 9th European WITP season all over Europe ! See you all next year !

WELCOME HOME NOA DEANE
Noa Deane hears Mudhoney. He speaks his own tongue. He chooses tweaked-out throwaways over the same ol' end section air-revos. He hates when shit is cooked, loves when it’s fucken sick. Noa digs oversized tees and loose-fitting jeans, and bunny hops into rock slab pits. His Thrasher hat got stolen at a Goons of Doom gig. Did you steal it? Give it back. Nah, it’s cool, he got a new one for Christmas. Noa loves his mom and dad, loves playing his strat super loud in his bedroom all by himself, loves his mates… absolutely fucken loves them. He’s right into his girl, but he keeps that on the down-low because he wants to give her space, doesn’t want to smother her. He knows the value of lightness. Noa lives in a shed in Ozzie Wright’s backyard, he had photos of Oz on his wall as a grom. Had photos of Alien, of Barney, of Bruce. He wanted to ride for the Stone even then. Couldn’t say why, but could feel why. Freedom. Kin. Moxie. The Stone was fizzing with it. He knew one day it would happen, but first… the usual rounds: boardriders, grom bashings, Nationals, stickers, passports, surf trips, magazine covers, :), Tuff, busted ankles, Cheese II, Strange Rumblings, A.I. Breakthrough, “surfs like Dane, looks like Cobain,” Skegss, Cluster, …the WSL, Pulp, and Blister, until he suddenly arrived here, at this moment, right now. The start of the rest of his life… Noa is a good person. A person who can change people’s perceptions about surfing for the better just by being himself, saying what he thinks, surfing how he feels. He’s the antidote to surfing with a plan, a torch to the spreadsheets that turn riding oceans into a pile of stinking numbers. He’s got the DNA of every surfing miscreant and rabble-rouser and hot-blooded purist in his veins, and the delightful ignorance of youth on his side. He’s the living, breathing embodiment of the Stone. If Volcom had a baby, Noa Deane would be it. Welcome Home... Words by Vaughn Blakey photo: Andrew Shield photo: Andrew Shield "When I signed with Volcom, a childhood dream had come to life, also it feels like a privilege for me to be in with such a bad ass family / team of people who include my friends and people I look up to.” photo: Andrew Shield photo: Tom Carey “Words cannot express how excited we are about Noa Deane, he shares our same passions and is the absolute perfect fit for the brand.” Brad Dougherty, Global VP of Surf photo: Tom Carey WHO IS NOA DEANE?!

Interview of Joan Duru - Qualification WT 2017
Congratulations goes out to Volcom's Joan Duru for qualifying for the prestigious 2017 World Surf League Tour! The 27 year old Frenchman's main goal this past year was to qualify for the World Tour, and he's done it! Ranking in at the #4 spot, just behind Frederico Morais, Ethan Ewing, and Connor O'Leary, Joan has earned his way to the big stage to compete with the world's best. Expect to see Joan dominating at big barreling spots like Fiji, Teahupoo, and Pipeline, while unleashing his explosive backhand at spots such as Snapper Rocks, Bells Beach, and Lower Trestles! Catch up with Joan and his road to qualification with this exclusive interview below. Joan Duru 2017 Qualification Interview   Do you have any passions or hobbies besides surfing? I like to go mountain biking with my friends or my dad. Tasty beef ribs, some wine with my buddies or spending time with my girlfriend. On the WQS (World Qualifying Series) Tour this year, you seemed calm and relaxed with good results following. Did you change something in the way you train? I didn’t make any changes for a long time, and it seems that it just started working. I’m 100% dedicated to my work with Mayhem, a board sponsor I’ve been working with for one year now. I always had magic boards, which allowed me to mainly focus on the rest. photo: Andrew Christie Is that what we used to call “maturity“ or “gaining experience“? It’s true that priority establishment totally changed my life on the WQS. Priorities make it easier because you can wait for the best wave without being afraid of someone who will get through to the inside at the last minute. The only thing to focus on is trying not to fall down! Tell us about your strong moments during the 2016 season. Starting with the second place at the Ballito Pro helped me a lot, as there were only a few prime events that year. And now, I’m glad, and more than happy that I made a semi final at Haleiwa despite the pressure of the qualification, but the good waves made it amazing! Joan blasting through a Haleiwa section on his way to a strong semi final finish. (photo: Jason Shibata) Working more on your physical and surf training this year definitely seemed to help you. Do you think it's imperative for surfers to train physically as well? I love sports, and I feel really bad if I’m not doing anything, thus training is not a chore, but a real pleasure! Moreover, Maud Le Car (girlfriend and Volcom surf team rider) and a group of young frenchy surfers such as Cloarec, Charly Quivront, and Bastien are lucky to have Charly Ducamp as a personal trainer, who is actually a great coach for me too. On the surf side, I’ve been working with Manu Portet for several years now. He was there to support me at all contests where I made my good results, so the training shows! How will you feel when you will officially be on the elite Championship Tour? Satisfied or pressured? "I feel really excited, but I’m aware of the very high level, so I will have to train harder physically, and technically, so that I can hope to face and beat the world's best surfers."   What are your ambitions on the Tour? To be qualified again for the CT in 2018 would be amazing. What’s your objective going into the 2017 season? To make quarters in the first contests. That would be an epic way to kick off the year. What are your plans to get ready for this new life ahead? I’ll spend winter in France to train hard, spend time with my girlfriend, my family, and my mates. I have to get ready for the upcoming year, because it’s going to be a long, tough year, with many contests. I’m lucky to have Maud by my side in Australia, and I really hope my family will be able to come over one or two contests to fully enjoy it. photo: Andrew Christie The Olympic Games. How do you feel about it? You’re still young and will obviously be a contender to be a member of the French team. Do you have an interest in that? Yes, it’s my dream, and I’ll work as hard as I can to make it happen! How are you going to celebrate this accomplishment? I think we’ll have to rent a room to gather all my friends and family to celebrate. Any last words? I want to thank all the people that supported me: my girlfriend, my family, my friends, and all my sponsors: Volcom, Vans, Mayhem, Creatures of Leisures, and Hercules, who never stopped believing in me for all these years. Let’s celebrate now!!!

Last weekend 20 motivated girls came to the Kitzsteinhorn for the elooa GIRLS BALANCE CAMP presented by VOLCOM. Also present were next to the elooa crew, a yoga teacher, a professional photographer as well as a filmmaker and the pro riders Mary Luggen & Ana Rumiha. After check-in the camp started with a yoga session into the weekend. Super motivated and well equipped with new Nitro Snowboards everbody went to the glacier on Saturday. After an extensive warm up and a few runs through the resort the girls practiced freestyle basics first before a perfectly shaped snowpark was waiting. Together with the coaches and the pro girls everybody practiced intensively all day and learned new tricks. In the afternoon we went back to our hotel, the Active by Leitner ́s 4* hotel that had all lot to offer: holiday galore! After coffee and cake a one hour yoga session with Anna Kathalina followed and before dinner everyone could recover in the spa area. After a very delicious and healthy dinner the day ended with an intense video coaching for all participants. On the final Sunday all campers went back to the Snowpark Kitzsteinhorn to implement the new tips of the pros and elooa coaches directly. The weather was still kind of inconsistant but we had sunshine all day. After numerous runs and a lot of new tricks in the bag an eventful weekend came to an end.
