Hitting the road is part of Volcom’s DNA and if they go for too long without a road trip they start to go stir crazy. So just as Volcom began to feel enwrapped by an overwhelming sense of claustrophobia, they started planning a loose route through the southwest assembling a solid crew to join them on the journey. Milton Martinez, Collin Provost, Omar Hassan, Mathias Torres, Alec Majerus, Simon Bannerot, CJ Collins, Peter Hewitt, along with snowboard legends Jaime Lynn and Scott Blum on their Harleys, joined Remy Stratton in the #YOTAvolcom along with Tom Remmilard keeping Peter company in his own vehicle, while Wanderlodge driver, Jarrod Pimental aka ‘Road Rage’, manned the wheel in the skate van.

Since the early stages of his career, Peter Hewitt has pushed the level of skateboarding in his own way and on his own terms. He came up in the late 80s and early 90s and has been a huge part of skating all over the globe. Resonating out of San Diego, CA, he is a prodigy of the early San Diego skate scene. He grew in parks such as Linda Vista, Mike McGill’s skatepark and any terrain in between and beyond. His childhood crew of skaters included Jordan Richter, Fred Orlande, Alphonzo Rawls, Danny Way, and the list goes on. Pete was able to maintain his drive through the 90s when parks were gone, wheels were small, and pants were way too big. While some 90’s pros quit skating, Pete kept the fire lite and ventured out to find anything that he could rip on. This included backyards. He pioneered the early days of Bellmar’s and Chicken’s pools. “Street‐Pete” also made an appearance here and there.

In the first episode of the season, Nate Wessel and the Build Woodward crew recreated the most iconic ramp in the history of skateboarding, the Animal Chin Ramp. The legendary ramp was constructed in the back corner of what was once just an ordinary tennis court. To complete the transformation from tennis court to skatepark, Nate went to work on designing a concrete street park to surround the Chin Ramp and brought in the boys from California Skateparks to pour some concrete and complete the project. Foreman Santiago Lopez takes us through the creation of two specific features in the new park: a steep corner-quarterpipe and a cantilevered bump-to-bump with some cool concrete finishing touches. Once the concrete is dry and the park is complete, Jake Hayes, Ronnie Sandoval, Peter Hewitt, Vincent Alvarez, Tom Knox and Adrian Adrid from the Dickies Skate Team stop by to check it out and shred.
