Stop #7 of North American WITP Tour

Stop #7 of Volcom Stone's Wild In The Parks skate tour pushed to the home of Purple Rain and 3rd Lair Skatepark in Golden Valley, MN Sunday 21, 2013.

It has been a few years since we have had the pleasure to hold a WITP event at 3rd Lair Skatepark and Skate Shop. Over the years the owners of “Lair” have made enormous changes and improvements to this premier skate facility. When you walk in the staff greets you as you step into the newly remodeled pro shop. The shop is stocked with a solid shoe wall, a great skate hard goods selection, and proper clothing offering that now includes Volcom! When you get the chance, head over and check it out. 3rd Lair’s street course has also been revamped adding a ton of flow and has every type of feature to keep skate progression at a premium. As we looked at the park we found 3 different lines to form the 3 zones fitting WITP contest format. Zone #1 had number of ledges and the signature 3rd Lair flat bar, zone 2 boasted a large 3x3 double set with 2 hand rails and zone 3 gave the competitors options with an A-frame feature that includes both rails and hubba ledges. With the zones set and the day upon us, the time was here to test the skills of the competitors that call 3rd Lair their 2nd home.

The 14 & Under Division was hot out of the gates to set the skate level ridiculously high. There was no such thing as a standard 1 trick objective as these young bucks showed they have years of skating under their belts. Henry Garland put it down with notable tricks like bs 180 nose grind to regular on the flat bar, kickflip bs lip on the A-frame rail, and fakie kickflip down the double set to show he was the alpha dog and take home the win. Not far off, Jackson Parrish was all over the park as he battled the zones with tricks like a nose slide 270 shuv, a smooth impossible lipslide on the double set rail and powered a bs crooked down the hubba ledge to lock down a respectable 2nd place finish. While all that was happening, Benny Milam provided enough to get into 3rd as he landed cab 270 bs lip on the flat bar, a bs kickflip down the double set, and a bs 270 lipslide on the A-frame rail before he broke his board trying a bs 360 kickflip (aka: blizzard flip) down the double set.

It was now time for the 15 & Over Division to take the keys and put the petal to the metal. Jake Rogers skated out of the shadows to be come a highlight as he went ham with a nollie laser flip bs boardslide on the flat bar and 360 flip lipslide on the A-frame rail to name a few. This “dark horse” took home 1st as he shined through the crowd of his skating peers. Chase Domeier was making the best of a bad situation as he skated with a separated shoulder the entire day. You could see him fighting through the pain, but it did not stop him from getting solid tricks in all 3 of the zones to place 2nd for his determination. Shalom Larson was also skating hard as he kicked flipped bs tail bs biggie out on the flat bar, bs flipped over the rail on the double set, and got some solid grinds on the A-frame to finish out the top 3 in his division.

If that was not enough to make your senses tingle, it was now time for the Open Division to make the crowd shake their heads and rub their eyes in disbelief. All of these Open Division competitors could stand atop the podium on any given day. From start to finish we saw the seemingly impossible become possible. These guys handled nollie heelflip boardslide on the double set rail, alley oop bs flip to flat over the A-frame rail, switch heelflip bs feeble on the flat bar, fakie bs feeble to regular on the flat bar, 360 spins both fs and bs over everything, 180 no-comply fakie 5-0 on the double set down rail and that is just the tip of the iceberg. It was a show for the record books and a totally awesome display of raw skateboarding talent. As time ended and scores were tallied Alec Majerus was in 1st place, Dan Coe received 2nd, and Tanner Van Vark was called up to gather his 3rd place winnings.

Volcom Skate Team’s Favorite Pieces from the Holiday 2017 Collection
Abandoned pools, rent-a-cops, real cops and more fences than we ever cared to deal with! For the release of our Holiday 2017 Collection, we grabbed a few of our skate dudes and asked them to pick out their favorite pieces. CJ Collins, Dane Burman, Milton Martinez, and Alec Majerus each handpicked their go-tos and we headed off to some skate spots to film them in the gear. Dive in below to watch these mini edits and explore the Holiday '17 Collection. CJ COLLINS We met up with CJ and legendary Steve "Salba" Alba to check out a couple of Salba's secret backyard pools scattered throughout the inland empire. The first pool was small and steep, but CJ is so small that he had no problem putting down some difficult tricks. In the last pool we visited, there was a massive love seat that seemed daunting to say the least. Our anticipation would have been much higher, but with someone like CJ who can spring his way over almost anything, he had no trouble boosting a backside ollie over it. Salba joined in on the action and was seriously impressed with what he saw go down throughout the day. After the two exhausted themselves trying to master the deep end, the crew packed up and had a rewarding early dinner at none other than Chilis. Frickin Modern Chino CJ Collins, grom trash duty DANE BURMAN We picked up Dane at Black Box Distribution in San Diego (where he's currently living on the couch), and kicked around spots to check out. We were trying to film a trick a few weeks with him before the second Wanderlodge trip, and he got hurt, so this session was his first time back. The first spot we found was a gap to rail, but we got kicked out so we decided to come back later when the place was closed. We drove around for awhile and checked out more spots, but they were either too big or there was another obstacle in our way. Eventually, we made it to a school where there were a few solid handrails, but fences plagued the areas so we moved on. He hopped a fence and found these cool trees that he could ollie through, but thought the gap was too long. Luckily, there was a grate in front of one that he could prop up with a skateboard and launch off of. He attempted the tree ollie a few times, but came up short. He was motivated to conquer the trick, so he kept trying, again and again, and even with the tight squeeze between the branches, he ended up stomping the trick with ease just before we were to head off to another spot. Frickin Regular Chino Pants Dane Burman strategizing his tree ollie MILTON MARTINEZ Milton wanted to skate the first spot we found because he said he wanted to "go fast and fly." Alex, part of the Volcom crew, brought his Harley to tow him in to a huge gap jump, but we ended up having the cops called on us and Milton couldn't get the trick down before we got told to leave. Although, he did get a kickflip melon pretty quick while the cops were in route. That spot was fun, but illegal, so we went to another spot Milton could get towed in to by the Harley. The route to tow in at this new spot was narrow and not really enough room to completely stop, so he had to ride through the grass to make it work. Milton ollied off the bump all the way to the street in under an hour, and when we were filming all the b-roll stuff, Alex caught a patch of soft grass and crashed his motorcycle. Luckily, he wasn't hurt and his bike wasn't too busted, so we ended up fitting it in the back of the van and headed out. Kneon Nights T-shirt Milton Martinez taking a breather ALEC MAJERUS We rolled up on a spot w/ Alec, saw some huge stairs, and knew someone had to do it, and that someone was Alec. The photographer, Swainston, wasn't too familiar with Alec, so he wasn't expecting anything gnarly, but that's exactly what he got. When he realized Alec was going for an ally-oop backside flip over the stair rail, he knew he had to buckle down and be ready to nail the shot. Alec took some beatings, but kept a determined and motivated vibe alive. He nailed it, and so did Swanston. Frickin Modern Chino Pants Alec eyeing up a rail

LONGO, HAAKONSEN AND FRIENDS IN OLIVIER GITTLER’S INTROSPECTION
OLIVIER IS A MAN OF MANY TALENTS. AT RIDING HIS SNOWBOARD, FILMING, EDITING, MAKING MUSIC, OR CELEBRATING LIFE, HE CONSTANTLY EXCELS. Oh, Oli's also the reigning Quarter Pipe World Champion, although he'll never admit to it. It’s no secret that a 30-second Instagram clip is usually a condensed version of a week-long trip around the world to document a specific goal. Whether it's a trick for a video part, a photo for the mags, field testing product, or any other reason to chase a winter storm. But, what about all the shenanigans in between? From airplanes to rental cars, hotel rooms to summits, and everything in between, sometimes the moments that define these trips are caught in-between takes. Volcom ambassador Olivier Gittler, with his strong appreciation for behind-the-scenes footage, put together this unique look at a season untold with Arthur Longo, Terje Haakonsen and friends.  "IT’S WHAT WE LOVE TO DO. ALL THE THINGS THAT HAPPEN WHEN WE TRAVEL FOR SNOWBOARDING. THE SPONTANEOUS PART OF TRAVELING AROUND THAT NO ONE ELSE SEES." – OLIVIER GITTLER Oli double exposure photo by Adailton Oli Mike and Jeff shot by Vernon Deck Oli Mike and Jeff shot by Vernon Deck music recording setup iphone Oli and Arthur iphone Oli close up shot by Arthur Oli forest iphone Oli Mt Blanc iphone Oli photo by Adailton Oli setup iphone Oli shot by Longo - Crater Lake Super 8 Paulina Lake iphone
