Wild In The Parks - $15,000 Global Championships, CA 2014

Volcom Stone’s 2014 Wild In The Parks tour concluded its journey with a thrilling finale at Volcom Headquarters in Costa Mesa, CA on Saturday, October 11, 2014.

Over the course of 2014, the Wild In The Parks tour has traveled throughout the globe to find the very best amateur skateboarders on the planet. Over 150 competitors from the United States, Puerto Rico, Canada, Norway, and even Indonesia converged upon Volcom’s private skatepark facility to compete for their piece of Volcom’s $15,000 cash purse.

The day started with smiles, high fives, and a bit of anxiousness as skaters checked in for practice. Positive vibes grew by the second in anticipation for day’s action to begin. After a quick riders meeting it was time to shift our focus to the task at hand and see who would be crowned the 2014 WITP Champions!

Competitors And Spectators Packed Volcom's Private Skatepark Facility The Entire Day

The 14 & Under Division was up first as spectators and fellow competitors packed the skatepark to cheer them on.  As the starting countdown ended, these young rippers dropped in and never looked back. It’s hard to believe what the youth is doing at such young ages as they bridge the gap from grom to seasoned veteran.  We saw some serious heavy tricks, including an inward heelflip bs boardslide on the rainbow rail in zone 1, a fs 180 no-comply down the 7 set in zone 2, and a hardflip to flat down the euro gap in zone 3. Minnesota’s Henry Gartland was on a mission to get into the top spot coming straight off an injury that required him to have shoulder surgery. This seemed like a minor set back as Henry landed a plethora of tricks that included a bs 270 lip slide on the rainbow rail in zone 1, a kickflip fs 50-50 on the bubba in zone 2, and a kickflip crooked grind down the creeper ledge in zone 3 as he captured 1st place.  Norway’s Oscar Hjellegjerde flew across the pond throwing his name into the mix with tricks like his bs 360 down the stairs in zone 2, and impossible lipslide on the rainbow rail in zone 1, and a bs kickflip down the euro gap to flat in zone 3 that had the judges nodding their heads and awarding him with 2nd place. Florida’s Marcos Montoya skated fast the whole time landing a fs bluntslide shuv out on the down rail in zone 2, a noseblunt on the rainbow rail in zone 1, and a bigflip up the euro gap in zone 3 to name a few bangers for 3rd place honors.

The 15- 21 Division had their gloves off and were primed to knock this one straight into the stratosphere.  It was a blur of action as these guys weaved through the park to land a nollie heelflip bs feeble over the rainbow rail in zone 1, a sw fs kickflip over the rail in zone 2, and the cleanest hardflip imaginable to flat over the euro gap in zone 3.  Washington’s Greg Dehart was skating with some serious focus.  He landed lipslide revert into the jersey barrier in zone 3, a picture perfect kickflip bs lipslide in zone 2, and a huge gap fs tailside fs bigspin out on the A-frame hubba in zone 1.  Greg clearly walked away with the win and dedicated his victory to his close friend Olivia who recently passed away. Florida’s Chris Roque took his own path as he landed an ultra dipped fs feeble across the alleyway rail in zone 3, an Alley Oop fs 180 to sw bs 50-50 on the hubba in zone 2, and a kickflip fs feeble on the rainbow rail in zone 1 for a 2nd place finish.  Florida’s Alex Sandino, aka The Dirt Weasel, was blasting through all corners of the park.  He landed a high speed 5-0 from the Jersey barrier to the end of the rail in zone 3, a 360 pressure flip down the 7 stair in zone 2, and blasted into the crowd with a huge melon grab to flat off the pyramid in zone 1 for 3rd place.

The Open/AM Division was chomping at the bit to finish off the final heat of the 2014 Wild in the Parks tour! There’s not much more to be said about this group of individuals that hasn’t been said before.  Their performance was absolutely incredible.  We saw a kickflip late shuv down the euro gap to flat in zone 3, a bs 180 sw over crooks to regular over the rainbow rail in zone 1, a forward flip bs feeble on the down rail in zone 2, a Mctwist off the Jersey barrier in zone 3, a must mention wall jam bs crooked grind nollie flip out on the hubba in zone 2 and that is just the tip of the iceberg.  Minnesota’s Tanner Van Vark was on fire the entire day doing tricks that nobody else would have even attempted.  He landed a Alley Opp fs 270 fs boardslide to fakie on the rainbow rail in zone 1, a fakie ollie sw bs bluntside to regular down the rail in zone 2, and a fakie lipslide 270 revert into the Jersey barrier on the alleyway rail in zone 3 to capture the WITP Open/Am Championship title.  Washington’s Ben Sauer has been on a 9-year journey to make his way up the WITP ranks.  He landed a bs lipslide from the euro gap into the monitor speakers in zone 3, a bs 360 kickflip over the hip in zone 1, and a bs 180 kickflip to nosegrind down the hubba in zone 2 for 2nd place overall. Florida’s Jamie Foy was really fun to watch as he picked apart each zone with technical precision.  He landed a 360 flip noseblunt on the rainbow rail in zone 1, a half cab bs smith grind on the down rail in zone 2, and a bs crooked grind on the alleyway rail nollie bigspin out into the bank in zone 3 that had everyone on their feet.  Jamie walked away with a grin on his face and 3rd place overall.

Week 11: Cowgirl Clue "Utopia" | Volcom Cyber Singles Club
Burger Records x Volcom present Cyber Singles Club, features music from the newest breed of Burger Records stars in the making, recorded exclusively at Volcom Studio, and will be released for free download & streaming every Monday for 20 weeks beginning April 17th. Week 11: Cowgirl Clue - "Utopia"   Grab the free download Ashley Calhoun, aka Wu-Wu, aka Cowgirl Clue, made her Burger debut with one of the rarest and most sought-after Burger Records releases, the limited-edition Halloween split with The Garden from 2014. Since then she's expanded her excellent experimental pop sound into this wild one-woman project and released her debut EP, Limelite, on Burger Records cassette. Cowgirl Clue first experienced the Burger Records phenomenon from her hometown of Austin, Texas during SXSW. "My cousin owns a venue there called Hotel Vegas. They host Burgermania every year, so I started going and getting to know them," say Ashley. "Then I moved to Orange County and I happened to live down the street from them, so I kept seeing them at shows." Life in Orange County soon provided a new perspective into Burger's operations and influence. "It's just been growing for years. It's very developed now and there's an aesthetic that's prominent," she explains, "I think my perception of Burger Records changed as it grew." Like a lot of people on the scene, Burgerama was at the center of this experiential perception. "It’s all ages, so there are tons of kids going crazy throwing flips off the stage. I think that whoever is experiencing that for this time period is pretty lucky. Unlike shows I went to when I was younger, going to punk shows, I see so many women and so many girls and people of all ages. It gives people an opportunity to connect with like-minded creative, young individuals... just the community. It's really cool to see people come together for music and art." We are happy to premiere Cowgirl Clue’s latest song, "Utopia", an inspiring tune about keeping your passion true. "As far as Utopia goes, I wrote it to connect my life to the industry," she notes, "The lyrics are implying that money may or may not buy happiness, but in the end, the industry is expensive and tries to get the best of you and your utopia. I feel it's important to stay true to yourself in life and you can be who you want to be. That's why I wrote Utopia ;)."

Week 10: White Night "Dirty Water" | Volcom Cyber Singles Club
Burger Records x Volcom present Cyber Singles Club, features music from the newest breed of Burger Records stars in the making, recorded exclusively at Volcom Studio, and will be released for free download & streaming every Monday for 20 weeks beginning April 17th. Week 10: White Night - "Dirty Water"   Grab the free download When attempting to describe the Fullerton / Anaheim, CA quintet, White Night (to those who have yet to give them a listen), one may face a challenge. Are they punk? Are they psychedelic? Are they attempting to go back to the days when pop or even pop-punk weren’t insulting things to be compared to? Or are they just plain ol' good time, hard-nosed rock and roll? The truth of the matter is that White Night is all of these things and more. While more bands are working to blur the traditional boundaries of nearly every genre, White Night fully embodies that melting pot sound which is reinvigorating rock and roll and its many sub-genres today. Like many bands that came before them, White Night was conceived as a way to meet girls. Guitarist and vocalist Frank Agnew, bassist and vocalist Jon Raines and drummer Mike Gonzales had previously played in bands embedded in the Orange County hardcore scene. But it wasn’t the best scene within which to reach girls, so they switched things up. "White Night started playing in mid-2008," says Jon. "Two of us had been playing together for a few years before that in Pterodacdudes and the Frank-fronted Shred Savage for about the same amount of time. Both bands were on the heavier side and we thought it would be cool to play stuff more pop-influenced and maybe more girls would come to the shows. The new sound soon found a home with their friends at Burger Records. "Sean and Lee are friends from way back," explains Jon. "Mike played in Thee Makeout Party for a bit and we've all been roommates at one point or another." The label would release White Night’s debut cassette Tour EP in 2009 which was followed by Immortal cassette in 2010, and most recently their full length album Weird Night in 2016. The band including Troy Rounsevllie on keyboard and Kevin Carle on guitar are working on their next record. They are also anticipating their first tour in Japan. Tour starts on July 20 and all Japanese dates are with Lenguas Largas from Tucson, Arizona.
