Stop #2 of Volcom's WITP Europe 2015 | Krakow, Poland

The Polish stop of the Wild In The Parks 2015 competition was a blast!! It was a lot of work to put everything together from early morning but the result was so rewarding! Skatepark Mistrzejowice in Krakow was perfectly pimped up for the event thanks to everybody that helped us that day!

At the beginning a couple of rain drops refreshed the whole area but luckily it stopped soon and skateboarders from all around Poland gathered, ready to rock out the park and show us their skills!

The attendance was also great so everybody had a nice time through the day. Soon the contest was ready to start with the 3 divisions: -14, 15-21 and OPEN.

The 14 and under division opened up the event, those rookies got plenty of tricks on the easiest section of the park, a concrete ledge and a rail. They where also kicking some good stuff on the funbox. After that the 15-21 division went wild on the course, shredding every obstacle in the way. Flips, grinds, big transfers, all technical stuff was put down there!! At the end of the day we finished with the top division – Open category, with the some of the best polish skaters! They rose up the bar very high, especially on the hubba/rail section and on the really big wall – landing banger after banger and making the audience go mad!!

After the main competition we fired up an extra best trick on quarter with bank sponsored by Supersklep.pl . It was also a good one with plenty old school tricks and transfers.

The atmosphere was perfect, tasty BBQ, rock music and a very chilled vibe. Everybody was happy to be there and meet with their friends from the whole country!

We are sending big thanks to Maciek Heczko and Łukasz Cebula for hosting our WITP and for keeping everybody in good mood , they put  also much efforts to make this event a big success. Big thanks to Red Bull for providing music and good energy during whole event !! Thanks to Łukasz Hospod and Chris Tsitsaris for the photo and video!

Also we want to thank our partners who passed extra prizes to stoke the kids: Monument Distribution, Youth Skateboards,True Distribution, Supra Poland!!

See you next year!!

Euro Thrash Video: Volcom Surf's European Vacation
Our good friends at Wasted Talent put together a video of some of our riders: Noa Deane, Ryan Burch, Gony Zubizarreta, and more, thrashing their way through Portugal, Spain, and France during their summer '17 European vacation. From scoring one of the best days of surf they've ever seen at The Cave, to touring the local watering holes and taverns, to getting caught up in a weird presidental campaign in Paris, there was no shortage of amusement and European debauchery. It was a great trip that surely lived up to its name: Euro Thrash. The team riders, photographers, and crew, all became great friends by the end of the trip and ended on a promise to all return back soon. Euro Thrash 2.0?

Elena Hight - ThisFirst - 10/17
What happens when you give all your blood, sweat, and tears and it just isn’t good enough? Elena Hight (@elenahight) is no stranger to the relentless work it takes to feed a passion. As a top contender in the women’s halfpipe contest circuit, a Winter X Games gold medalist, and a two-time Olympian, Elena understands the amount of dedication and sacrifice required to stand on top of the podium. "Everything that I do and think, and base my life around, is around snowboarding, and when it's not going good, there's almost no escape." Listen to Elena as she explains her obsession of achieving the impossible, quitting not being an option, and the ups and downs of putting your passion before everything, in this latest episode of ThisFirst.

The Film Project BCN event recap
This last summer some of the best skateboarding photographers in Europe were given 3 film rolls to shoot. The idea was to use them as they wanted and ship them back for this The Film Project initiative supported by Volcom. The result it´s been really exciting as it usually happens with analog photography. Forty pictures were selected and put together in this first exhibition which took place in Studio Store venue, located in the Borne neighborhood in Barcelona last October the 4th. Lots of skateboarders and analog photography lovers showed up to see the works while they shared some fresh Pabst Blue Ribbon beers. If you missed it, stay tuned for some more dates around Euro cities to be confirmed and check #TheFilmProject2017 hashtag for peeping a bit. Some select pics will feature in the finest skate magazines in Europe. Thanks to Pabst Spain for the colds, Dogway crew and all the contributing photographers for making it happen. The photos will be exhibited in various locations throughout October and November, stay tuned for a show/party near you!

Leuven Skate Contest
The Leuven Family gathered once again for Leuven Skate Contest. Every year they have a new theme, this time they went all the way with JOHNNY’S & MARINAS. There wasn’t just a costume contest, beers and bbq. No, there was some skateboarding also. You’ve never seen a bowl and street contest this friendly and fun. Simon Deprez took the win with the Volcom best trick contest. Everybody killed it but one guy stood out, he protected his hometown and his title as biggest Johnny of them all, so Jonathan Thijs took the win. And there is no better Johnny prize than a Scooter. Once again, big thanks to the Leuven Family, Twits Skateshop and Volcom. See y’all next year. Credit Photo : Joselito Verschaeve
