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 ………..

VOLCOM ACHIEVES FAIR LABOR ASSOCIATION ACCREDITATION
In February of 2018, after years of being an 'affiliate' brand, Volcom was officially voted in by the Fair Labor Association (FLA) as an accredited 'member;' an achievement Volcom has had its sights set on since 2014. It's a badge that sets the brand apart and recognizes the commitment and diligence that has been put into their social compliance program over the last twelve years. Companies like Volcom that join the FLA commit to ten Principles of Fair Labor and Responsible Sourcing (and/or Production) and agree to uphold the FLA Workplace Code of Conduct in their supply chain. The Code of Conduct is based on International Labor Organization (ILO) standards and seeks to protect the workers who manufacture a company's goods. Brands can sign on as affiliates, but it takes years of implementation to bring their supply chains into compliance with the FLA's expectations to become and accredited member. The standards aim to achieve decent and humane working conditions in global supply chains and address important subjects like nondiscrimination, forced labor, child labor, compensation, hours of work, and more. In 2014, as a first step, Volcom became an FLA 'affiliate' noting that "The FLA provided Workplace Code of Conduct and Compliance Benchmarks that helped Volcom achieve the goal of making sure workers were not only receiving wages for basic needs and training for promotions to improve their lives, but also to be treated with dignity and respect." During its implementation period, the P.A.S.S. team at Volcom (Product and Social Safety) worked with FLA to: Adopt and communicate workplace standards Train staff to assess and remediate noncompliance issues Conduct internal assessments of facilities Provide workers with confidential reporting channels After a trip to Washington, DC in February for the FLA vote, it was confirmed that Volcom's efforts had been rewarded. "We're honored and proud, said Big Tony Alvarez, Volcom's VP of Global Supply Chain and the head of its compliance program. "It's been a learning process and a challenge, but a continuously positive one. It's been a real partnership between our suppliers, the FLA, and our teams internally. We're so stoked for this achievement and it's a win for all involved." Volcom's compliance program, referred to now as P.A.S.S., began in 2006 with the implementation of their first Code of Conduct and has steadily developed and matured ever since. Volcom's P.A.S.S. team is built on the FLA's shared belief that "The products we buy should not come at the cost of workers' rights." Their membership recognition reinforces that belief. Volcom's accreditation will be up for renewal every three years following a satisfactory FLA evaluation of labor compliance systems and activities during the timeframe.

INTERVIEW + OUTFIT INSPO W/ SKATER GIRLS DEIMANTE AND AIMEE ROCKIN' OUR GEORGIA MAY JAGGER SPRING COLLECTION
CHECK OUT THIS INTERVIEW WITH SOME OF THE RADDEST SKATER BABES SHOWING US THEIR OUTFIT INSPO IN OUR NEW GMJ SPRING COLLECTION Our favorite London-based photographer, Leila Afghan, is back at it again, snapping photos and hanging with Deimante Sprainaityte and Aimee Gillingwater, two skater girls who are not afraid to rock their own styles. We were able to have a quick chat with the girls while they rode around town in our newest Volcom x Georgia May Jagger Collection, a collection inspired by 90's streetwear. Keep scrolling for the interview and some major women's outfit inspiration! Tell us about the shoot locations! DEIMANTE: Ballroom is a DIY Spot in Buckinghamshire. An abandoned building that used to be offices. Around three years ago, local skaters located it and started building it up slowly into a skate park that is one of the best DIY spots I have seen. AIMEE: Soho and London. The land of sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll. The London center of street and skater fashion. Soho is an area, as a musician, I spent a lot of time during my youth staring at all the instruments Denmark St. had to offer. It’s an interesting location as the collection was designed by Georgia May Jagger, the daughter of the frontman of the Rolling Stones. Soho has a lot of history attributed to her family. Do you prefer skating street or transitions? DEIMANTE: Both AIMEE: Both Who is your favorite skater? DEIMANTE: Nora Vasoncellos for sure AIMEE: Maria Dal Santo Do you skate goofy or regular? DEIMANTE: Goofy AIMEE: Regular Who are three people you would bring back from the dead? DEIMANTE: David Bowie, Michael Jackson, Dylan Rieder AIMEE: Carrie Fisher, David Bowie, Nina Simone

Volcom Rail Jam 2018 at Volcom Krynistler Snowpark
We had a great day during our first edition of Volcom Rail Jam ! Event was located in Volcom Krynistler Snowpark which Volcom is a main sponsor starting this season !! Atmosphere was excellent, we had not bad weather great set up prepared by Park Pirates and nice group of the best and craziest jibbers. We have started at noon with qualification part open for everyone. Riders were kicking from the beginning, ripping strong tricks on high skilled obstacles. 3 lines with different hardness made a big challenge for everyone forcing guys to the limit. Everything was hyped by music, and a delicious BBQ free for anyone with special thanks to our local partner BoardZone ! Gnu snowboards organized a bunch of jib boards for testing. Going further after quali time we had final runs , with plenty of mellow tricks- shredding all lines , doing transfers and strong combinations! Judges decided and pointed our first 3 best Volcom Rail Jam competitors. 3rd place that day was taken by Kuba Szkaradek for his nice style and technical lines. On the 2nd stage of podium we had our Volcom Man – Maciek Długosz who showed everyone that style matters and doing big transfers is profitable, he was unbreakable ! The best and the furious was one and only Rafał Sypień !! He blasted the strongest ones, he was the most creative and made a most varied trick combinations. We had also nice jibbing session with our beautiful ladies , with a Basia Sekudewicz winning bangers ! We want to thanks to our main partners for extra prizes – one of the best real snowboard on-line shops Snow- City.pl for Crab Grap stuff, Boardzone shop for organizational support and the best BBQ ever, Park Pirates for set up and the best hosting, Gnu for the test boards and support and ThirtyTwo for nice prize pack.

"Home, Sweet Home" with Joan Duru
Joan is a huge fan of barrels, which is why this video edit is packed with nothing but France beach break barrels. Before his start on the 2018 World Surf League Championship Tour, Joan enjoyed a short break at home, snagging a couple good days during a not-so-good winter. Good luck to Joan on the 2018 Championship Tour!
