RESULTS | Stop #3 of Volcom WITP European Tour 2014 | Bregenz, Austria

“Best fun ever” is a description of the Volcom Wild In The Parks last week end in Bregenz, Austria; Nevertheless, “genius”, “state of art” could be a description of the skatepark, and “shitty”, “bone cracking cold” and “rainy” are the words which best describe the weather condition during the event.

Upon arrival it was everything but certain whether the event could actually take place. Heavy rains and winds initially hindered the crew to set up. However, after three hours of anxious waiting and contemplating, the sun busted out from clouds and a clear blue sky welcomed the audience.

Fortunately, the park dried within a few minutes and ever since there was no holding back for the locals anymore who were eager to rip the park into pieces. The new Skatepark Remise, built and designed by Anker Ramps and Alex Kramer, is one of its kind in the region. Inspired by the huge DIY scene in Scandinavia, the park shares similarities with the Sibab-Skatepark in Malmö: A super smooth park with funky obstacles and a unique overall composition. As the park lies near Lake Constance, the WITP attracted many skaters from Germany, Austria and Switzerland, who certainly knew how to rip the unique mix of transition and street obstacles.

The Under 14 division showed some serious commitment and pleased the crowd with huge treflips over the table and boardslides on the roof top rail. One of the many highlights was the attempt from Balsa Marcovic who tried to clear the massive grass gap and despite a bloody elbow, gave it two more tries.
The 15-21 division did not give a damn either and pulled some “never seen” trick variations on the bank to quarter obstacle. The “Open” Division was the most popular division of the event. Many big names such as “Daniel Spiegel (Vienna), Octavio Trindade (Erfurt, Germany), Alex Schulz (Stuttgart, Germany) and the local riper Antonio Aiello (Bregenz, Austria) found their way to Bregenz and certainly tested the foundation of the new park while dropping some hammers! A short list could be a bs noseblunt (Daniel Spiegel) on the roof top rail, a fs flip over the stair set ledge (Antonio Aiello), a kickflip down the grass gap (Octavio Trindade) or a massive ollie up the ledge over the hexagon (Alex Schulz) this heat was going insane!
Just as all heats were completed, some dark clouds reappeared on the horizon of Lake Constance. During the brief interruption everyone could nibble on some “customised” burgers and refreshments.

As time was a limited resource, all riders had the chance to win some money for the bus home during the “Monster Cash for Tricks” session, which was hold simultaneously on the down rail and the bank/quarter obstacle. Everyone was sincerely invited and some gnarly tricks were unleashed.

To sum it up, the new Skatepark Remise in Bregenz was a pleasure to ride for everyone and was met with only positive feedback. The hosting of the WILD IN THE PARKS/LET THE KIDS RIDE FREE EVENT in this park was an enrichment for all the riders and certainly inspired all the locals. It was a blast!

Many thanks go out to Alexander Kramer who was great help when it came to communicating with the city council and of course the entire Volcom Team, making the organisation, despite heavy rains and interruptions as smooth it can be. Therefore, many thanks go out to: Heiko Jäger, Matze Schwab, Felix Gundrum, Felix Pfleiderer, Martin Hermann, Philipp Reinhard, Alex Schulz, Daniel Spiegel, Octavio Trindade, Ante Aiello, Holzi, Kaja.

Season Ender Bender at Snowpark Grasgehren, Germany
In case you couldn’t make it to the Season Ender Bender in Grasgehren, Germany, last week, here is what you missed. As the last event of the season, the ender bender was supposed to be one hell of a day. So the Volcom boys and the shaper gang did their best to make the day as solid as it was. The day started off with the insane BBQ which we never had before and tons of beer so everyone was pretty hyped from the beginning. As the Grill session went on, the weather got even hotter and the Crododile Pit was ready to surf! People were really going crazy on this obstacle and almost everyone took his chance for a ride through the palm trees, crocodiles and waterbombs! Right next to the Crocodile Pit the shaper crew built up the Sea Snakerail where the riders pulled out hammers to get some Volcom goodies. As a special of the day we equiped the riders with some foam guns and chased them all together through the Baked Slalom, the Crocodile Pit and the Sea Snake rail. Thanks to all the people who showed up! Thanks to Tajo Seefried and the Snowpark Grasgehren Team, Meckatzer Beer, Killerfish Energy and all the other helping hands!

RESULTS | Totally Crustaceous Tour | Karramarrofish surf series, Anglet, France
The Karramarrofish Surf Series went down this past weekend in Anglet, France, with some fine surf conditions and a little taste of summer weather. It was the last event of the European leg of Volcom’s Totally Crustaceous Tour 14-15 (TCT). A lot of surfers signed up from all over Europe, to get a last chance to qualify for the World TCT Championships in California. The battle was fierce in the ever-changing conditions of the South West of France, and the drama levels were high, adding extra flavor to this contest. Imanol Yeregi getting some tube time right before breaking his board in the shorebreak Check out the photo recap below for a detailed story of what went down during those 2 days!

Iker Imatrian got stopped in the groms semis but showed some very mature surfing throughout the entire event On top of sick prizes for all finalists, Skullcandy lent some bean bags and longchairs for some extra relaxation in between heats Guilherme Moreira was in fine form all event long and finished in second place in the Groms division in a high disputed final. Lavafish Surf Series winner Lenni Jensen made the trip all the way from the Canary Islands but also got stopped in the Groms semis, but not without displaying his smooth carves. In the Juniors division, the level was also high, with surfers from all around Europe shredding the bowls on offer. Adrian Fernandez de Valderrama shows you how to go vertical It’s always good to include a slip and slide in a race for extra prizes Tessa Tyssen and Neis Lartigue Neis Lartigue was flaring into the 2nd place of the Girls finals Tessa Tysssen won the Girls division with solid turns like these. Girls were going for it and weren’t scared of getting smashed in the shorebreak.

Charly Quivront was in fine form but lost in the Pro Am semi finals In his Pro Am semis, Diego Mignot comboed everyone with two big airs Groms and Squids were frothing on the beach both days with extra grinds, games, loads of whip cream and flour… Imanol Yeregui got 3rd in the Pro Am division, you see him here on a backside floater on a meaty section Volcom TCT « veteran » Aldric God was also on a rampage all event, he broke his board on this manoeuver and was back out in no time to pass to the next round God is rocking a Volcom sticker? His friend and Volcom team rider Paul Monborne lent him his board as he didn’t have a spare one after breaking his stick. Unfortunately Diego Mignot tweaked his knee trying to land this air in the Pro Am finals, we wish you a quick recovery Thomas Delplace searching for some shadow, he surfed like 20 waves in this heat.. Paul Cesar Distinguin is a well rounded surfer and was taking advantage of both outside grinders and inside bowls during his heats, he won the Pro Am division and a sweet 500€ in cash, find PC on tinder and give him some props!
