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 ………..

For the first time, Volcom was present at the Snow Garden festival, a huge snow movie and music festival. It was set up in the town’s soccer stadium, where more than 15,000 people enjoyed the latest and greatest snow movies, a bunch of concerts and met snow legends like Volcom’s Dan Brisse and  Arthur Longo. We showed Volcom’s new snow film, Mr. Plant on Thursday night in front of 5000 people, followed by a crazy signing session with Arthur Longo and Olivier Gittler. For the entire three days, ton of goodies were given away at the Volcom booth, such as custom hats, screened tee shirts, and we managed a huge “pick a winner” prize pack. We had a great time with some passionate organizers who did an amazing job. Congrats guys, we will see you next year!

Rune Glifberg, 2nd Place in The Berrics 'In Transition'

The Berrics held a contest where they picked 10 of the most progressive skaters on the planet to choose one location each—any location in the world—and film a full part. Volcom's very own Rune Glifberg and one of skateboardings newest pro's Ben Raemers were two of the chosen. Viewers of the videos were the deciding factor in the contest as they voted for the winner. Rune picked his hometown park in Copenhagen, Denmark while Ben picked a gnarly DIY spot in East London to film their parts. After voting closed it and votes were counted, Rune came out in 2nd place!

RYAN BURCH… THE RUSH OF THE CONTINUOUS RHYTHM

Ryan Burch puts the pedal to the metal on the walls of Bangko-Bangko and pulls into some heavy ones at Grajagan Bay after sharing a few thoughts on self-expression, how surfing and the asymmetrical boards he shapes fit into that, and what it is about being on a wave that excites him.

Surf Wax Candles DIY

The smell of surf wax always reminds us of the beach. It’s sweet like coconut, and smells like an afternoon of sunny rays, sand and sea salt.  We wanted to make something that would allow our house to smell like summertime even in the coldest winter (which is quickly creeping upon us). If you want to brighten your home and give new life to the worn out 10mm wax covering your surf board, here’s your chance:  let’s make DIY surf wax candles!!   What do you need? -       Wax (recovered from one of your boards, don't have your own - offer to clean up your friends board). -       A wick. -       A container to hold your candle (be creative, this can be a shell, the container of an old candle, a glass). -       A container where you can mix and melt your wax (you do not want to buy a new pot as it will be unusable after this session). Step 1: Remove the wax from your board. Step 2: Melt the wax. -      Place it in a metal container (an aluminum tray will do nicely) and heat gently until the wax is liquid. Step 3: Assemble. -       Place the metal end of the wick in the center of your container. Tie the end of the wick to a stick that you put in two lenses to keep it perfectly right. Step 4: Pour. -      Dust and sand should have settled to the bottom. Be careful not to pour the sand into your container. Step 5: Wait. Let your candle cool off before cutting the wick to the length you want. Step 6: Sit back, relax, smell the beach and dream away!
