Volcom’s Wild in The Parks has become more or less a tradition in Trondheim, in the North of Norway, where all past Norwegian editions of the skate contest went down.
People from Oslo, Stavanger, Kristiansand, Malmö and Larvik showed up in the morning and everybody was super hyped. Slayer was playing on the sound system and the vibe at the park was really good, as a lot of spectators were there ready to see what the contestants had to offer.
We had 3 amazing zones ready for the 80 contestants.
We kicked off at noon with the 14& under division.
The level of skateboarding in this division was truly insane! It is so much fun to see the kids rip the park to pieces. Petter Brunvatne and Jonas Carlsson destroyed every obstacle in their way.
After the 14 & Under division we started the 15-21 division. This was the biggest divison this year, which is fun since the 14 & under division has always been the category with most contestants. Local hero Johannes Sundby was on fire and took the first place.
The best was saved for last, and when the Open divison started, the crowd was on fire as well as the contestants. Mr Steffen Austerheim from Stavanger did some amazing tricks and claimed victory. Check out the clip and the photos of the event to give you a better idea of what went down.
After the finals we did a little best trick on the a-frame, Gard Hvaara did a switch Bs Flip, the hard way over the rail.
The prize ceremony was followed by the product toss, and everybody went nuts. Everyone had a great day, enjoying great skateboarding, free drink, free burgers and hotdogs.
Big thanks to everyone who came down to participate and watch. Huge thanks to Kristian @ Trondheim Kommune, The judges, Photographers, the filmer, helpers, Electric, GoPro, Spitfire, Anti-Hero, Session, Vans and Coca Cola.
