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 ………..

Congrats to Marcus Kleveland and Torgeir Bergrem for 2nd and 3rd place at the 2016 Innsbruck Air&Style
Wow, what a weekend it’s been in Innsbruck… The venue of the Air&Style had been shifted from the Bergisel Olympic Ski Jumping Stadium to downtown Innsbruck to accommodate even more fans. And they came out in huge numbers, no less than 17500 tickets were sold.. Hopefully, most of them came to see the snowboarding, not the trance/dance/rave/jungle/German hip hop sound on offer. Aside from that though, the set up was amazing and everything went according to schedule until the wind kicked in.. A gnarly föhnwind started blowing from the south, up from the Brenner Pass with a strength more resemblant of coastal climates.. It was so strong that sponsor banners started flying and jumping was out of the question. After the completion of round 2, the semis and finals had to becancelled, leaving Sebastian “Toot’s” Toutant in first place, Marcus Kleveland in 2nd and Torgeir Bergrem in 3rd. Huge congratulations to our boys, who of course were handsomely rewarded for their aerial efforts come night time, but that’s another story. For a quik summary of “who did what, check the below video. And thanks to VD for stunning photos.. Stay tuned for VD’s A&S video dropping this thursday Here’s a summary of the best riding: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UOKIFzpEAUM And if you want to see all jumps from round two, click here and watch the bottom video..

FINALS DAY Volcom Pipe Pro - RECAP!
Banzai Pipeline, North Shore, Oahu, HAWAII – (Tuesday, February 2, 2016) Kelly Slater (USA) solidified his first win in two years at the Volcom Pipe Pro today after a full day of standing ovation performances that many are calling the absolute best of the winter season. Slater surfed against three of the top Pipe mavericks in the world – Jamie O’Brien (HAW), Bruce Irons (HAW) and Makai McNamara (HAW) in a nerve-shattering Final that saw barrels fire off like cannons and detonate on the notoriously shallow reef. Kelly Slater, 2016 Volcom Pipe Pro Champion! photo: Jack Morrissey The 30-minute Final got started with two low scoring albeit immense waves from O’Brien and Irons, respectively, then saw McNamara answer back with the second highest wave of the heat, an 8.67. The 20-year old took an early lead on his opening wave, with Slater taking a quick second on his first ride, a 7.83. Halfway through the Final, the 11-time World Champ secured the win with a backup score of an 8.73, while the other competitors fought hard for the runner-up position. Makai McNamara. photo: Brian Bielmann O’Brien scored a 4.27 for a long left, finally finding a barrel in the second section of the wave, and backed up the mediocre score with a 5.67 for an inside Backdoor barrel. The combined heat total of 9.94 secured a second place finish for the Pipeline Master. The first perfect ten of the day - and the third of the event - O’Brien routed an ultra deep backside barrel to claim the Electric 10-point ride award for $1,000. Calm and cool, O’Brien was in complete control while navigating a high line, eventually bursting out of the tube after the spit. Marco Giorgi (URY) nabbed one of the highest scores of the morning, a near perfect score of a 9.67 for a tricky Backdoor barrel that threatened to clamp down. Giorgi is the sole surfer hailing from Uruguay in this competition. Marco Giorgi. photo: Jack Morrissey Tom Whittaker (AUS) was the highest placing Australian of the event, surfing in the fourth Quarterfinal against Jamie O'Brien (HAW), Mason Ho (HAW) and fellow countryman Soli Bailey (AUS). Baily, 20, had the opportunity to surf one of his first Pipe events in excellent conditions and was humble about the experience. “This is one of the first events I’ve surfed out here, so that’s a special thing," said Soli. "I think anyone that gets a chance to surf an event out here is super lucky and so fortunate. I’m just so glad that I got through to where I did and got to get so many barrels. It’s such an honor to get to surf this wave at its pretty much ultimate best and get through those heats and compete against some of the world’s best out here." Wiggolly Dantas (BRA) narrowly missed a shot at the Quarterfinals after being taken out by Makai McNamara (HAW) who advanced behind Mason Ho (HAW). The Brazilian is a standout in North Shore waves and has spent the winter honing his talents here at Pipeline. Check out Final's Day Heats On Demand & Photo Gallery!

Kelly Slater - 2016 Volcom Pipe Pro Champion!
Watch Final's Day Video Recap HERE!

Halfway through the Final, the 11-time World Champ secured the win with a backup score of an 8.73, while the other competitors fought hard for runner up position. “I’m stoked, it’s been a while… Between drinks as they say in Australia,” laughed Slater. “Two years since I won an event, and it was this one. I feel good, it’s obviously a great way to start the year off, it just flowed … Got big waves, got some nice barrels, had some high scores … But what a day! Perfect southeast trades and big bombing surf.” Runner Up O’Brien scored a 4.27 for a long left, finally finding a barrel in the second section of the wave, and backed up the mediocre score with a 5.67 for an inside Backdoor tube. The combined heat total of 9.94 secured a second place finish for the Pipeline Master. Jamie O'Brien. photo: Brian Bielmann The first perfect ten of the day - and the third of the event - O’Brien routed an ultra deep backside barrel to claim the Electric 10-point ride award for $1,000. Calm and cool, O’Brien was in complete control while navigating a high line, eventually bursting out of the tube after the spit. “I had about 11 minutes to go,” started O’Brien. “I saw the wave, I had the priority, I tried to set myself up in the best spot I could. Generally in heats you don’t like to be too deep, but that was my predicament in that one … I still didn’t think I was going to make it and I just kind of held on and it just started spitting, spit me out like a cannon. I was just stoked, I just claimed it so hard, but it’s just a good feeling you know. I heard the beach roar, then I heard them start dropping tens and thought, ‘that was a good one to claim.’” McNamara also secured a ten-point ride and $1,000 from Electric for one of the biggest, most perfect Pipeline waves of the event. The young charger was an absolute standout throughout the competition and was nipping on the heels of his competitors during the Final. “It was the best day of my life for sure,” said the North Shore native. “I can’t even explain it I’m so tired right now and just so worn out from today. So many memories went down I can’t even remember all that happened… a few wipeouts and a few really memorable waves and I’m just so happy to finish on the podium for the first time and I hope it happens again.” Makai McNamara. photo: Brian Bielmann Makai McNamara. photo: Brian Bielmann Irons was presented with the Todd Chesser Hard Charger Award for demonstrating sheer determination throughout the Volcom Pipe Pro. Jeannie Chesser, Todd’s mom, handed out the award and the two embraced in a moment of gratitude. “I was not expecting that,” said Irons. “It means a lot you know just because I grew up looking up to Todd Chesser. I knew Todd, I was young but he was always Todd Chesser, he’s always the guy. I’d sit on the beach watching and Todd would be going on the biggest rights. Every time I’m out there I’m always thinking about the Todd Chesser waves. And I love Jeannie, it’s a real honor to have this award. It’s right up there, it’s nice, I’m happy.” Bruce Irons. photo: Brian Bielmann Volcom Pipe Pro Official Results Shown in order of 1st through 4th.
