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.

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...

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!!!
