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.

Interview with Coco Ho
We had a chance to catch up with our surf rockstar, Coco Ho, and ask her some questions. Here's what our girl had to say... Which waves/ spots currently on tour best showcase a surfers potential? I think different waves/locations on tour show strengths and weaknesses for every individual, but it seems every year the divide gets smaller and smaller, every surfer on tour these days is so well rounded in all types of waves and locations. Is there a wave that better showcases women’s vs mens?  Men definitely shine in waves of consequence like Tahiti and Pipeline and the women have really been stepping it up and showing the world how good they are at waves like Snapper and Bells. I think having events together the women have learned a lot from the men's tour in regards to innovative and progressive surfing in heats. These days it's not uncommon to see women throwing down big combos and airs in heats.  Name the most impressive moment on tour that’s happened so far this year (mens or women’s)? To be honest the most impressive moment would have to be what happened in the final at J-Bay. Impressive to see that another competitor, in this case Julian Wilson, putting their own life in jeopardy to save another competitor. This showcased how deep all the men and women's friendships are on this tour. To be put in a situation like that and what their natural instincts were in that moment - that's true heroism and that to me is the most impressive moment in surf to date, period. What is one note/ word of encouragement or advice you give to every single person you work with?  "POSITIVE reinforcement” I really want to instil in every surfer I work with a very strong self belief in their ability, no matter what the conditions are like or what score they need. That trust needs to come from them being confident in their own decision making. Having good preparation and sticking to a solid routine will see you compete at your best….. Training, do you do it? Ratio of training to actual surfing?  Yes train the body and the mind.  The tour is gruelling and you need to stay on top of your health if you are going to succeed also eating heathy is a must. Actual surfing is the best training you can do, but to get the edge then you need to work hard whether it be full on gym sessions, Swimming, Yoga etc   …….. "hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard” Name three toughest waves on tour to wire?  The Box (Margaret River), Chopes ( Tahiti), Pipeline (Hawaii) The three most fierce women’s competitors on the tour right now?  Sally Fitzgibbons, Carissa Moore and Courtney Conlogue

Psychic Migrations: West Indies
Volcom Stone's latest feature surf film, Psychic Migrations, is set to release in September 2015 and we are unveiling some of the remote locations where the movie was filmed, along with a chance to win an all-expenses-paid trip for you and a friend to the Global Premiere in Newport Beach, CA. on September 17, click here to enter. A few months back, Nate Tyler and Yago Dora set out on a trip to the West Indies to film for Psychic Migrations, and what we got back from the trip was an epic collection of airs, mystical adventures, and weird moments. The pairing of Nate and Yago was the perfect duo. They kept feeding off the air game of one another and went blow-for-blow, trying to one-up the other on the next wave. This trip was different than previous Volcom movie trips where you'd have interviews with the director, Q&As, routine movie requests, etc. It was all surfing and exploring the land, which they did a lot of. Getting lost on the way to the beach, but feeling perfectly fine with taking a new route seemed to be a common theme on this trip. "Something that's been repetitive over the last few movies: BS!, Creepy Fingers, The Bruce Movie — was the interviews. There won't be any interviews in this one. It's going to be more of a cinematic odyssey," says Director Ryan Thomas. Nate, lift off in the West Indies. Photo: Tom Carey Nate & Yago, same place, different priorities.

Psychic Migrations: Central America
Volcom Stone's latest feature surf film, Psychic Migrations, is set to release in September 2015 and we are unveiling some of the remote locations where the movie was filmed, along with a chance to win an all-expenses-paid trip for you and a friend to the Global Premiere in Newport Beach, CA. on September 17, click here to enter. Balaram Stack, Carlos Munoz, and Mike Gleason journeyed to Central America to film for their upcoming movie. And what a trip it was. They scored amazing waves with the help of some local knowledge, crazy unpredictable slabs, and a whole bunch of great footage for the movie. Some words about the Central America trip Carlos Munoz: "I said, 'Look, if we go there we're gonna have the same footage as everybody else, so we should try something new and stay here.'  We made that decision as a group because we're all in the same boat. Sometimes you get people thinking negative on a trip and it doesn't work out. But on this trip, no one felt like, 'Oh, this guy is getting more than me.' Everybody was nice, doing their jobs and treating each other like family... no ego." Mike Gleason: "There's reefs, beachbreaks... a good mix of stuff, and everything came together for that trip. The swell just kept building and extending itself. My original ticket was for seven days, and we were in [Central America] for two weeks. And there were waves the whole time." Balaram Stack: "I was psyched to go on a trip strictly for video. That was my first real movie trip." Photo: Ryan Craig Carlos Munoz tucks into a cozy Central American barrel.

Psychic Migrations: Australia
Volcom Stone's latest feature surf film, Psychic Migrations, is set to release in September 2015 and we are unveiling some of the remote locations where the movie was filmed, along with a chance to win an all-expenses-paid trip for you and a friend to the Global Premiere in Newport Beach, CA. on September 17, click here to enter. Mitch Coleborn and Ozzie Wright didn't need to go far to film for this Psychic Migrations trip to Australia. Natives to the country, Mitch and Ozzie were stoked to get some filming in for the movie close to home and score some epic barrels (and of course, airs). But that's not what you'll only be seeing from Mitch, Ozzie, and the rest of the PM crew, in fact, this movie has a different feel. Director Ryan Thomas  explains: "I try not to repeat myself from film to film. This one is going to be very different than, say, BS!, which was a little sarcastic. This one has a very different mood, and I hope people are with me on it." Mitch Coleborn and Ozzie Wright journey to the beach somewhere in Australia. Photo: Tom Carey Mitch Coleborn, aussie-livin'.

Volcom and Fun Fun Fun Fest are proud to announce that with the help of local ramp builder, Ryan Corrigan of HOLDONHEREWEGO and the Austin-based nonprofit, Project Loop, we will again lead the charge in building the Volcom Super Collider for the FFF Fest skate event this year. The super ramp, designed by legendary skateboarder Remy Stratton, debuted last year to rave reviews from athletes and spectators alike and has now become an integral part of the action-sports experience at FFF Fest. "The supercollider, like a music stage, is also fun to look at even when no one’s on it. And then, there is that moment when the team jumps on deck with their boards in hand and the skate session explodes into some of the nastiest shredding ever, combined with the Fun Fun Fun Festival sights and sounds all around, I just can’t wipe the smile off my face," says Volcom VP of Skateboarding Remy Stratton. Volcom will also welcome back its renowned skate team for a series of demos throughout the Festival weekend. This years lineup includes: • Axel Cruysberghs • Ben Raemers • Caswell Berry • Chris Pfanner • CJ Collins • Collin Provost • David Gonzalez • Dustin Dollin • Grant Taylor • Louie Lopez • Ryan Sheckler • Rune Glifberg Tickets for the 10 annual Fun Fun Fun Fest set to take place November 6-8 in Austin, TX are now available at funfunfunfest.com and check out last years action from Fun Fun Fun Fest
