RESULTS | Stop #1 of Volcom WITP European Tour 2014 | Nova Gorica, Slovenia

Volcom Wild in the Parks started its 2014 European tour in Slovenia and after a superfun event last year in Slovenj Gradec, we knew this one would be even better as Slovenia got a true brand new concrete park in Nova Gorica.
Saturday, 21st June 2014 was also Go Skateboarding Day, so pretty much every Slovenian skater gathered in Nova Gorica to witness this-and-that. The weekend was packed with action and started on Friday evening with an evening session at the Mostovna club for a WITP preparty.  The miniramp night session went wild with some live performance of ska/punk rockers Super Action Heroes and our punk rock friends Backstage.
The sun was shining on Saturday for a perfect summer start with skateboarders all over the city. Before the main event organization Skate with heart (Sk8aj s srcem) made us all go and skate the Nova Gorica streets for a good cause. Smiles on faces of approximately 70 skaters were just a warming up before the Volcom contest.

There were just too many tricks to name them, but in the end winners were crowned and everyone happy (and exhausted) after such a day.

Check out the clip and photos for a taste of the day.

Congratulations to everyone who attended the event, especially Rene Torkar, the winner of the kids under 14. And also Jaka Škrjanc, the youngest competitor (8 years old) and Larisa Podgornik, who was the only skater girl at the event. Congratulations to Jakob Vilhar for his 1st place in the 15-21 division and to Christopher Khan, winner of the open division.
Thanks to every single sponsor that made the event happen and good luck to all the 15 riders (first 5 from each category) in the European Championships in ………..

Log onto www.go-shred.com to share or find a ride to the French, German, Swiss and Autrian PBRJ contests. Volcom’s Peanut Butter and Rail Jam snowboarding series was developed to take a different path then other contest predecessors by offering something new to amateur snowboarding. The event encourages involvement from the community while promoting the local youth within the region.  These up and coming riders put their skills on display in a supportive and positive environment. Competitors are judged on the tricks they land, never on their bails upon three unique snowboarding features. This all ages event has no contest entry fee allowing riders to compete in 1 of 4 divisions including: 15 & Under, 16-21, Women’s Open, and Men’s Open. Free lunch is provided to all competitors and prizes are awarded in all categories. An additional cash prize is also awarded in the Men’s Open division! This year we focus on offering fun contest setups for all divisions and age groups, rippable by all as this is the main goal of these events: gather your local snowboard scene around a fun day. See you on the hill! More info: pbrj@volcomeurope.com PBRJ crew, Madrid 2014 PBRJ Poland 2014, Białka Tatrzańska

Iker Fernandez' full part in Finisterre
Certain things in life only get better with age, like a bottle of 1970 Bordeaux Grand Cru, Real Estate values, and man's understanding of the female brain (or maybe not). When speaking of snowboarding ability though, the pendulum tends to lose momentum as age advances, unless your name is Iker Fernandez. Our Basque friend from San Sebastian was raised on pintxos, the waves of la Zurriola outside his door and frequent excursions to the nearby Pyrenees. Could it be that this combo is the fountain of youth that Ponce de Leòn unsuccessfully spent his whole life searching for? Watching Iker snowboarding you can't help but wonder. Iker's favorite jacket is the Stone Gore Tex in mustard.
