Volcom Stone's Wild In The Parks Championships 2013

Volcom’s 2013 Wild in the Parks tour came to a climactic end at the company’s headquarters Saturday, October 19, 2013!

The 2013 series has scoured the globe to find the best young prospects that skateboarding has to offer.  After six months and 11 tour stops, more then 140 highly talented competitors made their way to Costa Mesa, California in pursuit of Volcom’s $15,000 cash purse and the title of 2013 ‘WITP’ champion. With the stage set, the action was underway!

A packed crowd of professional skateboarders, industry heavyweights, and skateboarding enthusiasts set the scene, as the 14 & Under Division got down to business. Alex Midler was a force to be reckoned with as he destroyed everything in his path with technical perfection.  Alex landed both bs and fs 270 lips on the handrail in zone 1, kickflip bs lip from the euro gap to rail in zone 3, nollie fs feeble on the rainbow rail in zone 2, and many more throughout.  If that wasn’t enough to claim 1st, Alex secured the win by landing a buzzer-beating bs 270 kickflip lipslide on the handrail as the crowd erupted in disbelief.  Tanner Oliver was right behind Alex impressing the judges with a clean bs smith bs 180 out on the zone 2 rainbow rail, bs kickflip over the euro gap to flat in zone 3, and finished things out with a redeeming bs tail shuv out on the zone 1 hubba to lock down 2nd place.   Gilbert Estrada rounded out the top 3 by ripping a sw 360 flip down the stair set in zone 1, a bs bigger flip up the zone 3 euro, and put down a crowd-wowing hardflip late fs 180 on the zone 2 pyramid. These young guns all displayed why skateboarding has a bright future.

The 15 & Over Division was next to attack the zones like a wolf stalking a lone sheep that had lost its herd.  Mason Coletti made his presence known immediately by landing 5 heavy tricks that traversed all 3 zones in less than a minute.  This was extra impressive since Mason had recently recovered from a broken kneecap that left him sidelined for over 6 weeks. Mason pulled many noteworthy tricks including an impossible lipslide on the zone 2 rainbow rail, alley oop fs 180 sw bs crook on the hubba in zone 1, and a gnarly kickflip fs 50-50 from bank to rail in zone 3 for the win.  Tanner Van Vark didn’t waste any time getting the juices flowing before putting on a show.  He stomped out a hardflip across the pyramid in zone 2, a fakie ollie sw bs crooked to regs on the hubba in zone 1, and finished his performance with a perfect lipslide transfer into the jersey barrier in zone 3. His performance was very impressive as he secured the 2nd place position.  Nathan Hammond also mixed it up as he blasted a powerful bs kickflip over the down rail in zone 1, a fakie full cab down the stairs, and hammered out a huge ollie late fs shuv down the euro gap to flat. Nathan proved that you “don’t mess with Texas” and placed 3rd as time expired.

The Open Division was now ready to finish things off as a full moon cast its rays onto the skatepark from above. Dashawn Jordan dropped the gloves immediately by landing a bs bigger flip over the euro gap to flat in zone 3, a hard flip fs board on the zone 1 handrail, a next try bs bigger flip fs board on the handrail, a huge fakie fs kickflip over the hip in zone 2, and many more to take the title of 2013 WITP Open Division Champion! Tyson Bowerbank was trading punches with Dashawn the entire way.  Tyson rattled off many technical tricks including a kickflip fs nosegrind pop out off the creeper ledge in zone 3, a fs 360 kickflip over the hip in zone 2, and a perfect over the bolts bs 360 bigflip down the stairset in zone 1 for a well deserved 2nd place finish.  Chris Gregson was next to show his presence by stepping into the ring. Chris is always a crowd favorite by skating fast and destroying everything in his path.  He laid down a stylish bs noseblunt to fakie on the jersey barrier in zone 3, blasted a 15 stair-sized fs flip down the 7 stair in zone 1, and capped it all off with  a massive fs 360 across the pyramid in zone 2. Chris performed very well and took home the bronze podium position.  These guys truly raised the level of skateboarding and set the bar even higher than expected.

Artist Mike Parillo on Visiting Hawaii and Deciding to Never Come Home
Finding salvation in surfing, Mike Parillo escaped to the North Shore of Hawaii and never came home. Parillo's early passion for the mountains and snowboarding has led him around the world. A Volcom contributor since '91, dating back to the formative tribal years of the Stone, Parillo grew up in Los Angeles in the 80s at the apex of the exploding skate, surf, snowboard and youth culture movement. These influences were profound and put him squarely on the path he walks today as one of a respected and leading artistic visionary in the action sports industry with over two decades of credible work to his name. Mike Parillo painting the Volcom Pipe Pro mural on the porch of the Volcom Pipe House An icon in the snowboarding universe and the artist behind the artwork for Volcom's 1994 snowboard film, The Garden, Parillo's early passion in the mountains recently turned to the beaches in Hawaii where he fell in love with surfing. Having traveled the globe following his passion for snowboarding and art, then finally settling in Los Angeles, he decided to leave everything behind for a new life in Hawaii. Having made his home near the Volcom Pipe House on the North Shore, Parillo expresses that the rewards for chasing his passions far outweigh any of the downfalls or sacrifices he has made. Nowadays, he's is in his preferred state of mind, frequently visiting the house to hang out with the crew, surf out front and painting freely, having left behind stress of timelines and due dates on the mainland. "I'm definitely happiest when I'm not depending on my art to sustain myself. I'm happiest when I'm creating just to create."

Volcom Welcomes Hailey Langland to Global Snow Team
Hailey Langland has been making a name for herself since she started snowboarding at age five. She exists in changing time zones, her passport stamped with groomer laps, take-offs and landings. She's got a front three that floats for days and radiates a style that's beyond her years. She grew up paddling into waves and pushing down streets in beachside San Clemente, CA. She first made turns at Bear Mountain and now calls Mammoth’s Main Park home, both proving grounds for sovereign snowboarders. She's fluid and explosive. She has a method that turns heads. It's the kind of kick-out that can't be learned. It's built-in from birth, harkening the past that's built for the future. We can't be more excited to welcome Hailey to the Volcom Family. She brings an impressive past, a promising future, and an unmatched personality which radiates passion and perseverance. While she joins us now, she has always been destined to the Stone. It was only a matter of time for the stars to align, and that time is now. Hailey Langland. Photo: Mike Pham // @phamuel "I'm psyched to be joining the Volcom Family! It's a dream come true to be part of a family that's much bigger than just snowboarding. I can't wait to see where this journey takes me." Hailey’s collection of heavy medals is already plush, though she’s truly just getting started. She landed a first-ever cab double ten in the 2017 X Games and earned her first Aspen gold. See? Just getting started. She’s logged time on podiums around the world. Slopestyle? Check. Big Air? Check. Three years in a row, she’s won the Drink Water Rat Race—a banked slalom where just getting to the bottom is a victory. And Hailey’s been the fastest. Three times. She’s the future of women’s slopestyle, yet her ease and authority with which she puts down tricks stretches far beyond contest boundaries. She’s the future of women’s snowboarding. Scratch that. She’s the future of snowboarding. Hailey wearing the Taylor Jacket (available in 3 colorways). Photo: Vernon Deck // @vernondeck Hailey's energy and style are pure Volcom. I’m super hyped on what she brings to the program. She's got full approval from the team. It's on!!!" -Remy Stratton, SVP Global Skate & Snow Hailey is serious about style and truly loves to ride. It's visible in every turn she makes, every slash, and every air she attempts. It's not fabricated. It's natural. Established at a very young age. At only seventeen, she's both a beacon to snowboarding's roots and a flare to the future, lighting up what's possible when talent, grit, and creativity are fused together. She says, "I cannot stress it enough how much style matters. We're all becoming robots out there, it's driving me freakin' nuts." Hailey on a recent trip in Saas'Fee, a resort village in the Swiss Alps. She has been True To This since she first stood sideways, but now, with the nourishment of the Stone, she can further feed her freedom of expression, and we are so stoked to welcome her to the family.

I remember passing the skate park and bare wanted to skate so my dad got me one of them Argos decks and I went with him and taught myself. Where is the last place you skated? Bay 66. But I didnt really skate it because on the way I tried bombing some fat steep hill and ate the most shit, that's the same day  broke my leg. How many bones have you broken? I broke like 3 bones in my leg but I cant remember which ones. Tell us about your injury... I dont remember how I broke them because I was drunk. I ended up going to a friends house and sleeping it off but in the morning it was soooo swollen. I couldnt move it so was time for hospital. Best thing about skating... You can have fun without having to pay for anything Worst thing about skating... There's nothing really bad about skating except when guards try and stop you from skating a spot and when it rains.

LONDON PHOTOGRAPHER LEILA AFGHAN IN NYC WITH SKATE GIRLS BRIANA AND YASMEEN
We were fortunate enough to sit with the 3 coolest chicks we know and ask them about everything skate. If you don’t know them already, you will. London based photographer (@leilaafghan), New York skater and model Briana King (@brianaking_) and Brooklyn babe Yasmeen Wilkerson (@yaz.so.mean) strutted their stuff in front of the camera and gave us some insight into their world. Leila, what's your favorite type of photography style and atmosphere to shoot? LEILA: I like weird and surreal - I shoot digital and film, but prefer the dreamy effect with film. When did you start taking skate pics and what took you there? LEILA: I started in fashion styling and photography, but am now progressing and combining documentary style, hence, taking pictures of me and my friends. Where is your favorite spot to shoot skate? LEILA: New York. Favorite spot to skate? YASMEEN: My favorite spot to skate is something new I've been fucking with called Delancey spot or BOCA LES spot. Its a walkway near the Willy B Bridge in Manhattan with a cement block, benches, curbs and other diy stuff. BRIANA: Coleman skate park. Where is the first place you skated? YASMEEN: The first place I skated was an empty parking lot by my house. I was too intimidated to skate in the open as I do now, and I barely knew how to push so I would take my board out there and try to ollie and get comfortable. BRIANA: Out front of the apartment. Where was the last place you skated? YASMEEN: LES skate park is the last place I skated. BRIANA: Blue Park Brooklyn. How many bones have you broken? BRIANA: 1 ankle. I attempted to ollie over 4 decks in front of a four stair, rolled my ankle, broke it, and couldn't trick or treat that night with my newly broken ankle. YASMEEN: My wrist (Smith fracture). Best thing about skating? YASMEEN: Best thing about skating is everything about it. The little lessons it gives you in humility, confidence, and persistence. Skateboarding taught me that strength isn't always physical. BRIANA: The homies! If I didn't skateboard I would be a lonely bub in NYC. And the worst thing about skating? BRIANA: There is no worst thing. YASMEEN: The fuck boys. ALL PHOTOS BY LEILA AFGHAN
