RESULTS | Stop #4 of Volcom WITP European Tour 2014 | Eindhoven, The Netherlands

The best thing about having a Wild In The Parks in the Area 51 Skatepark in Eindhoven is that the level of skating is so frikkin high!. With Local Rippers as Daan and Job van der Linden, Nick Bax and Pim the Rijk you know that the battle for the top place will be a gnarly one.

The day started off with a smooth looking course provided by the friendly people of Area 51. Within an hour the coarse was flooding with little rippers who all wanted to show their best moves and get some free burgers. In the first qualification heats you could immediately see that the level amongst riders under the age of 15 was getting more impressive each year. With tricks down the double set, flips over a barrel and the flyover being put to good use it was a super sick contest to watch.

After the kids under 15 it was time for the sponsored division. The level was so high the judges had a hard time figuring out who was going to proceed to the finals. Rippers such as Bart Buikman, Teun Janssen, the Van der Linden brothers and the Martens Brothers to name a few I wouldn’t want to be in their shoes.

After the qualification heats it was time for some good burgers and chicken. There was way too much food so everybody was stuffed before the rest of the contest. Luckily only 30 kids had to skate the finals.  First of the Final heats was the unsponsored 15 and up division. Sjoerd was shredding so hard it was a unanimous vote that he had to win the contest. With halfcab boardslides bigspin out on lock he was a hard one to beat!

In the finals for the youngest of them all it was a close call between Kevin, Elvis and Raul. In the end Kevin took the title and a fat package of goodies. Immediately after that the big boys started off with a 15 minute long “Hammerfest”. New kids like Mano, David and Magic had a hard time coping with the assault that the top 6 was throwing all over the course. The Top 5 featured Nick Bax(flyover bs tail down the hubba a.o.) Teun Janssen(flyover nosegrind down the flatbar a.o.) Daan van der Linden (bs 270 backlip 270 out a.o.) Daniel Martens (treflip lipslide a.o.) and The obvious hardest ripper of the day Job van der Linden with a list of tricks to long to name but here’s a few: heelflip bs tail on the flatbar, Sw fs Heel down the double set and unfortunately after the time he threw in a switch fs tail 270 for the crowd!

It was a super fun day thanks to Peter, Andre, Chanelva and Kimberly of Area 51, Femke Vogels, Our Judges: Rudy, Robbin, Jerry, Pascal and Patrick and everybody that showed up!

BEHIND THE SCENES: ATTUNGA - A VEECO FILMS PRODUCTION
THIS IS THE FORGOTTEN STORY OF ATTUNGA Attunga - The Aboriginals used the term to define "a high place." And that was the exact place our group was searching for. Or was it a feeling? To navigate the globe, to harness the spirit of a single moment in time created by a collective of individuals, to find a higher place for an elevated state of being – Attunga. Without hesitation, we jumped into action and began our journey. A daily diary was written. Each day’s adventure noted, madness scribed. The crew documents in an attempt to record what would be known to Attunga as the most influential group to ever occupy its presence. Then, the diary was lost. Mishandled. Hours of line-by-line transcribing of pure gold vanished as if nothing ever happened. Left in the fresh Australian Alps. A page ripped out of a larger story only to be known to a select few. It was said to contain their unapologetic quest for a higher place. This was the chapter of Attunga.   Not since Attunga's early days had a group of 15 men troubled the grounds with musical instruments and a thirst of 100% Victorian hops and malt which goes by the name of Furphy. This beer, the Volcom Snow Family longed-for. It was their weakness, but it didn’t hold them back. Not at all. It only fueled their true passion for living. Snowboarding. Music. Skating. There were no downtimes. Those outwardly disturbed neighbors, rattled from their foreign beds and thundered by group chants with overwrought behavior, only marveled the next day as the team soared high above their heads. Finding side-hits where previously thought impossible, approaching jumps at unprecedented speeds, riding down the mountain together all in a consistent, but unique way. They were on the search for a higher place. A place which previously occupied a state of mind unbeknownst to their fellow man. This place was the pinnacle of their search. And it was mesmerizing. This was the long-forgotten story of Attunga, only briefly told. A temporary remembrance of what once was. An anecdote. It seems archaic to draw a timeline from memory and not tangible proof. But, then again, that’s the story of Attunga. Did it really happen? We must digress. Continue on. The story is out there. In a higher place that's joined with its unparalleled state of mind. Lost in a diary that doesn’t want to be found. Buried beneath, somewhere deep in Falls Creek. Photos by Vernon Deck + E-Stone:

The Volcom Cham Shack Womens Invasion !
Volcom womens took over the Volcom Cham Shack beginning of February, in Chamonix, France. The ladies that joined us were: Camille, Fanny,  Lili,  Kicki,  Alba,  Silvia,  Jess,  and  @maudlecar Some of the coolest girls from Paris, Berlin, Barcelona and London together with our brand ambassador Maud Le car, flew to the Volcom Chamonix House in Chamonix to be part of a unique experience. Jess Gavigan, aka Juice  describes her journey ! ‘A couple of weeks ago I headed out to  Chamonix for a snow adventure with Volcom. I left Bali to do the trip and then return to Asia straight after because the trip sounded so amazing and I really wanted to work with Volcom! The long journey was made up for it by the first night accommodation. COZY SETTINGS LEVEL 100. The hotel was amazing, and I had the most amazing room with a view, and was greeted with a bed full of amazing gifts from Volcom, clarins and electric. GASSEDDDD. That was a great start to the whole trip, but I won't  go into it loads cos there's too many sick parts... We went to the Volcom store to pick out some stuff, which was totally unexpected - if the gifts on the bed weren't enough we got free reign inside the store (like kids in a candy shop). We got to try snow shoeing, which was a new experience for me! And I loved it. It was sick doing a mini trek up the mountain, perfect weather conditions and the icing on the cake was the house we went to for dinner. It was unreal. Everything hand made, hand cooked. The food was WOWOW, and we each got given a quartz crystal which was all found on the mountains by the husband. It was such a special night and I've been keeping the crystal in my pocket everyday (travelling through Asia) The bit I was most excited about was snowboarding in our new gear. I was stoked to ride with lucie, vernon, olivier, Maude Alba and Silvia. We got to go and ride around and take some sick shots. IT WAS SO MUCH FUN. I loved everyone we all got on so well. And then we did a couple all girl runs GIRL POWER haha The clarins spa was next level. Getting pampered was heavenly and the outdoor swimming pool/jacuzzi was a really nice end to the day. The whole trip was sick. The group got on so well and everyone was like a big family at the end. I was sad to leave. It was an amazing and magical few days in the mountains. My only regret is that it didn't last longer!! I met so many cool people and its an experience I won't forget, and even better I've got sick volcom snow and lifestyle apparel for lifeeeee. ‘ THE WHOLE TRIP WAS JUST WOW. (Haha inside group joke) Big love to emilie, Lucie and the volcom gang. Credit photos : Vernon Deck video : Olivier Gittler Special thanks to Electric, Clarins,Vernon deck and Olivier Gittler

Attunga world premier, P1 Munich, Sunday the 28th of January
Last Sunday on the first night of ISPO, Attunga was shown to the general public for the first time. We teamed up with longtime friends, media partner, and snowboard magazine extraordinary - Pleasure, because when it comes to throwing parties in Munich, nobody does it better. By the times doors opened at the P1 club, the line to get in was over a hundred meters long. Come 11 o’clock, Terje Haakonsen introduced the movie to the overenthusiastic spastic snowboard crowd. At 12:30, the boy wonder, aka the not so petit prince with his magic fingers and slightly less magic amplifier came on stage and introduced his band LEOPARD Ale. Within seconds, yours truly was violently pushed into the back corners of the venue by a lynch mob of, hmmm… let’s just call them female fans (we do live in #metoo times after all). It was close to Beatles mania all over again. After LEOPARD Ale’s historical gig, Nasty Mondays took over, and it was around this time our beloved Seth Huot (Attunga movie director) was kicked out for letting off too much steam. Not an easy task to accomplish, kudos Seth. The rest is as they say, staying on tour. We’ll let the pictures speak for themselves. Thank you to everyone that came out, Chris Heubl and Pleasure Magazine, Martin Herrmann for photos, and Jeff and Seth for coming all the way from the US.

Attunga "A Higher Place"
ATTUNGA is the unfiltered saga of three Norwegian snowboarders: Terje Haakonsen, Torgeir Bergrem and Marcus Kleveland, pulling back the curtain and examining their purpose, potential, pitfalls and paychecks. Filmmaker and snowboarder Seth Huot exquisitely documents an intimate portrait of legendary purist Terje (44), holistic-minded Torgeir (26) and carefree wunderkind Marcus (18), who together realize a common higher place.
