Wild in the Parks, created and sponsored by Volcom, is a skateboard contest primarily designed
for amateur skaters. Instead of a serious and nervous championship, this event is designed to be a
pure fun in the park. The event is aimed for all ages, but the contest will be broken up in three
divisions: 14 and Under, 15 and Over, and Pro-am open contest. Celebrity guests with decent
knowledge and experience are invited as the judges, whom will score individual participants under
their technique and tricks. There is absolutely no entry fee required to participate.
The event is not limited only in the U.S., but it is an international tour happening in Europe, Indonesia, South Africa, Australia, Japan and Brazil. The schedule for both the U.S. seasons and the international seasons could be found here: http://www.volcom.com/witp/index.asp?seasonId=16 In addition, Volcom provides free food, free gifts, and cash prizes for each local winners. Few of the finalists from each country are then invited over to Europe to participate in the final Championship event, where the final winner gets a grand prize of $25,000.00. Wild in the Park is simply a nice event to hang out, enjoy the environment, eat free food, watch the amazing skating skills, cheer with your friends and families, and win free gifts!
