10 year’s ago; Volcom unveiled its Let The Kids Ride Free program, which provides the board sport community with a fresh approach to contests. The grassroots effort set out to infiltrate the local, regional, and international communities with FREE skateboard, snowboard and surfing events.
This FREE approach attracted the best up and coming talent allowing performance to flourish.
The Wild in the Parks skateboard series has seen many of today’s top talent pass through its ranks while continuing to groom the next generation.
Recently, Volcom's WITP was approached by Red Bull to select one of its 15-19 year-old competitors to skate in the Red Bull Phenom contest at the 2013 X Games in Los Angeles. One competitor from the 2013 WITP series will have the distinction of representing the hunger and energy that is WITP! The selected skater will receive a once-in-a-lifetime all-expenses paid trip for themselves and a chaperone to the X Games Aug 1-4. Red Bull will feature the Phenom winner in a video highlighting them as the 2013 Red Bull Phenom! We will be selecting our WITP envoy on Monday July 22, 2013.
