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 2: The High Curbs "Empty Bottles" | 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. Make sure you grab the 1st week's download - The Side Eyes "Cat Call" Week 2: The High Curbs - "Empty Bottles" Empty Bottles by The High Curbs Having arrived from the Inland Empire like a wild fire, The High Curbs have been busier than ever. But how did it all start? Before they ever worked with Burger Records (Burger released The High Curbs second full length, Marcelo Cleveland on cassette in July 2016), the band were already fans... initially connected through the internet. "Literally, if you have Soundcloud, then you know Burger Records" explained singer Eduardo Moreno, "that's really it." Meeting Sean and Lee and the Burger Records crew in person didn't take much more effort either. "We just went in the store and annoyed the shit out of them... we would just walk in and ask them if they have any shows you could throw us on?". It's much harder to ignore someone in real life as opposed to pestering them on social media... "That [social media] doesn’t work" the band all agreed. It also helps to make friends with other bands on Burger. "Be friends with a band that's on Burger and tell them to record you", said Eduardo. "That's what we did," added drummer Aaron Korbe. The band recorded their debut self-titled EP with Facundo Bermudez, better known as Cundo, who sent Sean the recordings that first put The High Curbs on Burger's radar. But admittedly "things got lost in the shuffle for a year or two" remembered Sean and The High Curbs would go on to self release that EP as well as their follow up full length, Weight Problems. But The High Curbs persistence would pay off. They recorded their second full-length with Audacity's (one of the original bands on Burger Records) Matt Schmalfeld, who then sent the recordings to Sean who thought "they ruled" and "that's when The High Curbs became part of the Burger Fam!" he exclaimed. Part of the NOW SOUND of Burger Records today, The High Curbs hit the Volcom Studio to record a brand new song for the Cyber Singles Club. Entitled "Empty Bottles", the song's about being on tour and is a full blast of garage-punk rock and roll that shows why the band are ready to hit the road every chance they get. As an added bonus, The High Curbs, also made a music video for the song.

Surfing Freezing Waters North of the Arctic Circle with Leon Glatzer
Located north of Iceland and the Arctic Circle, tucked tightly in the frigid waters of the Norwegian Sea, lay Norway's Lofoten Islands. Known for excellent fishing, spectacular nature views (e.g., Northern Lights), the midnight sun, and Unstad, where it's not surprising when the air temperature is in the low 30s and the water temperature hovers around a mere 40 degrees. The quaint, small fisherman's village of Unstad is also home to one of Norway's best surfing spots. And even with the chilling temperatures, Unstad sees surfers from around the world showing up to surf the uncrowded waves, explore the region, and during the summer months, even have the opportunity to go for a midnight surf! This all sounded much-too-appealing to 20-year-old Costa Rican surfer Leon Glatzer when he had the opportunity to visit the northern islands of Norway. Leon, who ventured to Unstad to shoot a G-Shock commercial, said this trip was "nothing like I have ever experienced." A far departure from his tropical home in Central America where he doesn't need to wear a wetsuit, Leon had to pack thick fullsuits, booties, gloves, and head gear to battle Norway's freezing temperatures. Dive into this Q&A and photo feature below with Leon to hear first-hand about his experiences and favorite memories from his trip. Q&A with Leon Glatzer   How did you hear about this opportunity? Greg Martin (Friday Media Management ) gave me a call asking if I wanted to go to Norway for a G-Shock shoot. I couldn't believe it. Norway? That must be freezing! So I jumped on the opportunity right away. Did you guys wait for a swell before going or did there happen to be waves when you arrived? We waited for almost two months for the perfect swell and weather. It was a long two months because I wanted to go right away, but it's good that we waited because the waves were firing and the conditions were perfect. What was it like traveling to Norway? It was a really long journey to get there. We had to take four different flights due to the location we wanted to reach, which was the north part of Norway. Flying over all the mountains covered in thick snow and ice blocks floating in the water was one of the most amazing visions for me especially coming from Costa Rica. I questioned myself: what have I got myself into? What gear did you have to pack for this trip and surfing in the snowy conditions? I packed loads of socks and gloves. Also, waterproof pants, jackets, and boots (which had to be waterproofed). Wetsuit thickness was a 5/4, but I had three of them so I could put a dry one on every session. How were the waves, water temp, locals, etc.? The waves were pumping 4-7 foot, perfect glassy lefts with light offshore winds. Water temperature was 36 degrees, pretty much freezing temperature. There was one or two locals that I surfed with and they really nice people and were super stoked that I was there. It's a really small surfing scene, which is cool. The place I surfed is called Unstad and is pretty much all rocks on the bottom and no sand until you get to the beach. What was the town like? The town was small and intimate, and a complete fishermen town. Super friendly people everywhere and always reaching out to you for a conversation. It was nice talking with different people and sharing the reason for my trip and hearing their stories and the history of the town. Any interesting food or cool local spots? The food was amazing. We ate whale stew almost every day. There wasn't really any local spots or localism because the town was so small, which was a breath of fresh air. Every place was a local spot! What was your favorite part of the trip? My favorite part of the trip was the first day I woke up and had no idea how the waves were going to be. We pulled up to the spot and it was absolutely firing. Surfed for four hours straight. After four hours, I basically had to crawl to the car because my feet were completely frozen and I couldn't walk at all. I finally arrived to the car and the crew started laughing their asses off at me!   Photos by Hallvard Kolltveit Words by Leon Waiting for the fishing boats to deliver the goods. Late afternoon walk to search for more waves. Watching the sun slowly coming up and touching the cliff, filling the freezing habitat (including myself) with some warmth! Tried to catch as many waves as I could in order to keep my body temp up, and of course, enjoy the experience. I can only imagine how cold the water photographer must have been. Sorry, dude! It was so nice to stay in this mystic town with the fresh smell of fish every morning! The locals said they don't even notice the smell anymore, but to us tourists, the smell was strong. My face is completely frozen. The photographer said smile, but it was impossible. Simple air right in front of the only forest located in Unstad. Such a surreal vision watching a perfect left peeling next to a hefty mountain covered in snow. Nothing like I have ever experienced. Sunset, nicest time of the day in Norway. The way the light goes in between the mountains makes the colors so fascinating. The water is as dense as a river, and as cold, too! One of the coolest fishing towns in the world, despite the cold, the fishermen have the biggest smiles on their faces. All this rubber makes me feel like I'm wearing the Iron Man suit. Ready for anything! This silent and deserted location gives you an opposite receptivity. Feels like there is a big mass surrounding you. Being from the tropics, this is the most unbelievable view I have ever seen. This picture says it all: team work! Wishing the walk back to the hot shower wasn't this long! Only this you see in Norway. Fire in the sky! The only road you never get bored of. Every route, every corner, every curve you take, there will always be a smile on your face. Mass energy, forms, and colors floating above. I thought it only existed in the movies. Coldest and most challenging paddle anyone will ever experience. Battling with three inch snow covering my board. Exploring has no end in this world. In freezing water temperatures you find obstacles like this! Every mountain I saw I wanted to snowboard from the top into the sea. In the Arctic, we walk to the surf in knee-deep snow instead of sand. Until next time, Norway!

Searching for Surf & Shaping Surfboards in Morocco
In Morocco, 30 kilometers south of Casablanca lies the small town of Dar Bouazza, home to fisherman, farmers and the country's best left-hand break. Drawing surfers from around the globe in search of exotic empty waves, Dar Bouazza is also home to a sizable lot of surfers who have been drawn to it's wave that on a good day will run for over 500 meters. On his recent trip to Morocco, our friend Carson Myers, who can usually be found shaping boards in Hawaii, was himself lured to Dar Bouazza where he could spend a couple weeks surfing, shaping and exploring. "Going there I was thinking that I could bust out a board in one or two days just like back home. Little did I know that it would be like building a board in your back yard..." Kai Shapes, the only local surf shop in Morocco that is shaping boards were generous hosts that turned their shaping room over to Carson where he quickly realized that there would be some challenges to his normal process. "I had all my tools to shape the board but none for the other steps that go into completing a finished board. For example when we laid up some fiberglass to make some glass ons we didn't have a clean piece of glass but instead a piece of plexiglass. So when it came time to remove the panel from the glass, we had to use a metal spike to pry it off. And instead of cutting the fin templates out with a jig saw all we had was a metal disc grinder." Over the course of the ten days it took to completely finish his board (normally a two-day process back home), Carson spent the rest of his time surfing and discovering the town and local culture. "Unfortunately for us the waves weren't ever really going off. The beach break right in front of our house was usually our go to spot. Most of the time it was a little bit over head, glassy and peeling for 50 meters left and right." While he may not have scored the best waves, journeying to a far-off place with a solid group of friends and the new found appreciation for those who facing the challenge of bringing the craft of shaping to foreign lands and making surfing accessible for the community, made for a trip that will not be soon forgotten. "I am really appreciative of everyone who blessed me with their time and expertise on this trip. Kai Shapes, especially Scott and the guys at the shop. Zach Trein for the fins and my whole connection to Morocco and of course Josh Cohen for the photos and being an above par travel companion." The shaping room at Kai Shapes Carson in a pair of the Stranger chinos, the perfect pants for those in journeyman mode Using the disc grinder to cut the fin templates Prying the panel off the plexiglass Fun little acetone bath The finished product. Morning at Jack Beach. This is where we surfed mostly. Not really A+ surf but with just you and your friends out it's hard to beat. The local market. My favorite way to shop. Super fresh. Keep up with Carson on his Instagram @myerssurfboards and grab a pair of Volcom Stone Made chinos for your next adventure.

A Candid Photo Journal: Puerto Rico w/ Noa, Yago, Droid, Mauro
Puerto Rico has been an increasingly popular destination for surfers around the world ever since the 1968 World Surfing Championships were held there, and for good reason. Along with the hundreds of reefs, points and tropical beaches, favorable winds to the north, and crystalline blue water, its diverse natural scenery and renowned traditional cuisines make this Caribbean island a favorite among many. As a surfer, you're focusing most on the waves. But what other advantages does Puerto Rico have? Crowds? Those are ubiquitous these days, so we can throw that out. Hazards? There are always a couple. But when you go down the list of notable spots, from Parking Lots to Maria's to Los Tubos to Middles to Aviones (the list goes on), you're sure to score some waves any season you visit. Right? Wrong. Maybe that's right, but not for Noa Deane, Yago Dora, Andrew Doheny, and Mauro Diaz. Noa, Yago, and Andrew recently travelled to Puerto Rico to meet up with Mauro (who lives in PR) and Richie Olivares (Volcom's Global Surf Team Manager) to try and score some clips for a new edit. After driving around a ton searching for waves, taking a mini jet to a neighboring island, and returning to the same fruitless conditions, the boys needed to shift their focus. And they did. When you have a diverse group like this, you are never bored. From Noa's 'welcome to the team' surprise, to the sharpie incidents, to the Pelican Man, there was no shortage of memorable times. See below for a Q&A from the guys, along with a selection of behind-the-scenes and lifestyle film photos from photographers Tom Carey and Scott Stinnett. WEIRD? Meeting the Pelican Man, who literally could talk to the pelicans and tell them what to do, seriously. I guess he was featured on the National Geographic cover once. He would rescue wounded pelicans and by the time we met him he had a full flock under his wing. CREW? Droid and Noa were inseparable the whole trip, constantly making music, writing songs, playing guitar. While Yago would just quietly eat his candy and then boost eight foot airs. Mauro was just soaking it all in and was stoked to be there. FOOD? Meal of the trip was Pinchos? Peenchos? I dunno how to spell or pronounce it, but it's basically sketchy 'chicken' on a stick and sold on the side of the road. DRINK? Drink of the trip was Pina Coladas! So many Pina Coladas. FAVORITE? Favorite moment of the trip was when everyone conspired to welcome Noa to the team by smashing a pie in his face. So while Noa, unknowingly, jammed out on his guitar, Yago snuck up behind him with a pie and smashed it in his face! I think Richie yelled "welcome to the team, grom!" and then Noa smeared more of it all over his face and started chugging whip cream while everyone cheered. It was great. SHARPIE? If you fell asleep early enough, Noa and Droid would hunt you down with a sharpie and vandalize your face. I think Nate Leal got the worst of it. SURF? It was full moon when we were in Tortola and the main spot we surfed the whole trip was in front of a shanty bar called Bombas, which was literally held together by string and beach wood and halfway underwater already. It looked like a big enough wave would knock the whole thing down. They had a legendary party on the night of the full moon and they were serving some beverages that made us hallucinate. It was wild!   Below photos: Tom Carey Camera: Canon AF35M & Disposable Cheers, mon! Yago, Noa, and Droid taking down some Red Stripes pre-flight. Beer of choice for El Caribe. Droid loves to sleep. Is he sleeping here? Here's Noa wondering the same thing. Small planes are convenient (and sketchy) when you need to jump from island-to-island to search for waves. Grid-locked! You can bet on Yago to always be prepared for a surf. We also discovered he always has extra fin keys. Good man to bring on a trip! Tradewinds in Puerto Rico can sometimes make for chilly weather. But Tradewinds or not, sunny or cloudy, Noa is always rockin' his favorite jeans. Mauro Dora and Yago Diaz?! Surf trips sound so fun, right? Especially to places far from home, and they are. But, people forget it's full of multiple airports, long car rides, lack of sleep, and sometimes getting skunked on waves. Here's Droid at the culmination of it all. Noa trying to make the car rides a little more entertaining for the group. After flying-high all week, Yago indulges on a couple glasses of vino on his last night of the trip. Nate Leal and Scott Stinnett (background left & right), are the go-to filmers for the Volcom Surf Team. These dudes are always on it! What we can take away from this photo is that more sunscreen was needed! Yago channeling some Tony Alva? Scott Stinnett. Cops are always on the lookout. "Yeah, it's a bit windy, but..." Sleeper boy. Noa knocked out from rocking too hard and drinking too much water. Droid's bringing back the classic Black Fly's look. Y'all been to Pusser's? Phone rings... "It's Ozzie! Oh, snap, my rent's due!" House view. Droid sometimes sleeps with his eyes open. It's creepy, but pretty funny! Yes, airports are full of freaks! The name of this airplane is quite accurate. Whatever you do, don't look down! Scared, psyched, confused, or all the above? Touchdown! This place ruled. Yago always packing the late night snacks. This dude loves chocolate. Droid rockin' the Mag Vibes Stoneys and Yago rockin' the Macaw Mods! Mauro Diaz is always Gozando! (Having a good time.) Noa greeting the Shark's Cove of the Caribbean! Why did we have a fart machine? Who knows. But when you play this thing through a mini amp, it will have you in tears. This literally went on for a couple hours... Nate, bummed his phone broke and couldn't Tinder. The pie in the face wasn't enough, and Noa wanted more! Noa making Richie and Droid some tasty treats. Egg in hole? Egg in basket? Whatever it was, it ruled. Noa loves to prank people, and here is proof! So, don't fall asleep before him. Looks like Tom Carey didn't get the message. Checking emails? On Instagram? Whatever, it's too late for photos. Noa's first boards with the Stone! Yes, Droid sleeps with his guitar, day and night. Below photos: Scott Stinnett Cameras: Yashica T4 and Widelux Boarding the mini jet. Yago's candy stash. Airport lobby jam sash with Droid and Noa. Maybe just Droid. Droid, zorched. Beers and champagne. Why not?! Seriously lost! Tom Carey trying to figure out where they are while Noa sleeps one off. Mind surfing. We did that a lot due to the lacking of waves. Few spots had potential, and we found some fun waves, but not a ton. Everyone wants a photo with Droid. Mauro Diaz. Checking this spot called Middles, which had a couple waves on offer. Yago Dora. This is Tortola. And it's an amazing place to visit. Free samples of Pina Coladas on the house! Noa and Droid. This was the last night in Puerto Rico. Full crew! These rocks were super sharp, but made for some cool, Mars-lookin' landscape. Droid and Noa taking in the amazing view we had. What a way to wake up. Droid. Yago, the pelican whisperer. OK, Noa is a pelican whisperer, too. Yago, Noa, Droid, trying to write some songs in the lobby. You can see Droid here has taken a new approach to the word "downtime." Downtime again with Droid. Cool path we found to some waves! Droid resting his eyes. Droid jam session. Droid sleep session. Yago with somewhat of a swan dive. Noa and Droid hanging out on the porch of our spot. Found a dude who was driving this and asked if we could take some pictures with it. He was stoked, and more than willing to let us do it. Thanks, man, this is rad! So sick. Sincerely, yours truly. The Pelican Man hooked us up with some free lessons on how to care for them and feed them. It was actually pretty cool, and Noa and Yago turned out to be experts at the trade. Noa mid-jump, or fall, or step-off, or whatever. Not a very enthusiastic jump, but we'll take it! Buddies. Noa and Yago enjoying the Caribbean. Cool angle of Yago floating in the sea. Yago. Mauro showing us some spots. Room with a view! Yago. See you, dudes, next time!   Related stories: Indo Boat Trip with Volcom Surf Team - Candid Photo Journal Episode 3 of Welcome To Water, Indonesia - Candid Photo Journal Hawaii Campaign Shoot - Candid Photo Journal
