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 ………..

The 2015 Volcom Kitzsteinhorn Banked Slalom is a wrap!
What a weekend we just experienced! Smiles for miles, sunburned noses, egos’s bruised & boosted and then waking up with the worst hangover of the year. Words hardly do all the good times justice. So why not let the photos tell the story instead? See you all in 2016 for the 3rd version. Congrats to Tadej Valentan for taking top honors and winning the Mt. Baker Banked Slalom starting spot. Good times at prize giving. Arthur Longo in 2nd and Michael David in 3rd. A big thanks to Kitzsteinhorn, Active-Kaprun.at Hotel, Burg Kaprun everyone who came and rode, helped shape, all our friends and supporters. Thank you for snowboarding. Does matching the color of your pants with our flags make you go faster? Nico from Asturias helped with shaping and rode fast Only 3 more turns before a cold beer and free burgers await The banks just got better and better the more throughout the day. No thanks to poaching pommes aka skiers. The Kitz shapers worked hard for over a week to build the course, it vas very different from last year Finding the right wax combo was tricky, as the weather changed from snow to sun to fog all day Here’s a view of the mid-section of the course, Olivier Gittler chasing Arthur Longo with a selfie-stick Kitz head shaper Lippi loves his job and it shows.. Feather or gap over the speed bumps? Turns out ollieing over was the fastest option All the way from Switzerland, Nicolas “Fäst” Wolken one final turn short of beer and burger Pleasure’s Fischi has no problem whatsoever drinking non- Bavarian beer Towards the end of the course, your legs are bleeding and your heart is pounding. But the roar from the crowd gives you the extra energy needed to stay tucked down low until the finish line. Bjorn Simons at the start, getting ready for drop in, mid-blizzard Manu from Israel crosses the border into enemy territory. Luckily, he got back home unscathed The Picture Books gave their absolute everything at the Castle Rock Out party.

Don’t know what to do next summer? Are you over spending your summers at crowded beaches, frying like a sardine in a tin can with swell non-existent? Then this might be worth a try. It’ll for sure improve your lung capacity too. PS: Who ever picked the soundtrack for this edit deserves a medal, 1st track is killer!

North America | KIDS GET ONE LAST SHOT TO QUALIFY FOR TCT GLOBAL CHAMPS IN JUNE!
This past weekend marked the end of the regular season contest series for Volcom Stones Totally Crustaceous Tour in US with the Starfish Surf Series, and boy was it a doozy. Fittingly so the final contest on the schedule this year took us back to were it all started in the home stomping ground of Newport Beach’s 54th St.. With Volcom being housed right up the street and the history this wave has with the TCT, the tours regular season could not be more appropriately capped off. Aryn Ferris. Surfs sooooo good. Style, don't forget style kids. The crew rolled into Surfside Sports right around the corner from Volcom’s HQ on Friday afternoon and got all setup for the pre-event signup party along with the crew from Wienerschnitzel providing free dawgs for the pack of frothing Grommies. The Groms packed in to Surfside’s parking lot to play some games, ride some skateboards, snag some swag from Volcom, Penny Skateboards, Rev’d Bar, and of course have some free fun from all! Not to mention while all this was going on we signed up about 100 competitors for the following mornings event that was filling up quickly! Huge thank you to Surfside Sports and Wienerschnitzel for a great Pre-Party! Saturday morning brought calm winds, super fun clean peaky waves at 54th, and a whole beach of fired up competitors chomping at the bit to get the event going. Everyone pitched in a hand to help our pumped up staff and next thing we knew the contest was up and running in no time. We sent the Juniors out first to test the waters and get eyes on what was in store for the rest of the day…a very high level of surfing and an event loaded with local and regional talent from all over the state. Everyone vying for those coveted final spots in this years Volcom TCT Champs at River Jetties and Lower Trestles in June. Larry Layback showing off the fins for the ladies! It was all fun and games until Mother Nature threw us a heater of a curve ball. California is not particularly know for its East Coast style, out of nowhere, violent squalls. This day proved to be different and we had some weather come in being pushed by very strong winds, not to fret though our talented staff and helpful bystanders we were able to batten down the hatches, keep the contest pushing, and the competitors did not let the weather phase them one bit, they just kept on ripping! If this doesn't just make you go awwwwwww...you have no soul. The Squids are the BEST! We moved right into the finals and the competitors just kept raising the bar with the advancing rounds. When the event was all said and done Cole McCaffay snagged a win in the crowd favorite squids divison. Keanu Igarashi took the title with a dominating performance in a huge Groms division that started with 10 heats in the morning. The girls division was impressive as usual with Tiare Thompson snagging the win in the finals and securing her spot in this years TCT Champs. Next up was the Juniors final where we saw Parker Cohn snag the win in a highly contested division. Last but not least we had the Pro-Am final where Matt Passaquindici took home the win in drifty choppy conditions that still provided some diamonds in the rough that not of these competitors let sneak by un-ridden, that was an action packed final! The little guys didn't seem to be affected by the windy conditions. Cole MacCaffay capping off the end section. Thank you once again Newport for being you and keeping us on our toes. Special thank you to Surfside Sports for providing us a great pre-event signup party and location and allowing us to have some fun with the Groms. Also a huge thank you to all the competitors and their families for coming out and making this Starfish Surf Series so special!! See you at Champs!!! Try and find the adult. I'll wait. Crazy Jeff and the frothiest Groms! Kevin Meza seemed to be in tune with the choppy conditions all day. Peter Piper and his loyal followers. Jack Boyes has a progressive bag of tricks. Fears no wind squall. Groms learning how to lay the wood! Said it before and will say it again. A good bottom turn is the key to it all. Games!? I Love games!! Jeff Richardson and the game squad. The little bowls at 54th St. still had some powerful little corners on them. Matt Passaquindici on a fin free ride to a first place final. She's a looker, these Volcom TCT Starfish Surf Series events. Full commitment and complete disregard for fin systems. The weather may not have been anything to write home about come end of the day, but Matt Passaquindici's performance sure was. Smiling. Happy. All these kids walked away with goodies from PENNY SKATEBOARD, KICKER, OAM and many more!
