Arthur Longo wins the First Annual Volcom Kitzsteinhorn Banked Slalom

The first annual Volcom Kitzsteinhorn Banked Slalom is a wrap up and what a blast it was.. Unfortunately we had to postpone race day from Saturday May 3rd to Sunday May 4th, due to heavy snowfall and fog on the Saturday but the big crew of riders, cotton dealers and media that defied the tropical-intensity rainfall in the valley and still went up on the glacier were not complaining, as they were greeted with up to knee-deep blower pow from 2500m altitude and higher.. Then, come nighttime, as is always the case at Volcom events, our preparation for game day is not exactly Olympic. We rented a 12th century castle and invited our metal Friends in Liquid Steel from Innsbruck to come play for us.. With free beer flowing all night and classic rock tunes blaring until late wee hours it was a given that certain racers would be hurting the following morning.

According to local folklore, a participant of the corrupt 5-Ring Sochi-Circus and his entourage shut down the local adult-entertainment establishment at 4am as part of their pre-race stretch and warm up routine.

Sunday, we awoke to cloudy skies and fog but up on the glacier, the sun was slowly but surely burning away the fog. Registration was done by 9:00am and we got more than 130 racers up on the hill. Those with early start numbers were cursing their fate, but soon enough, it was bluebird and as good as it gets. For those not in the race, they were ripping February-quality pow just next to the course. Local hero Björn Hartweger held on to the lead for ages, until some guy with a backpack asked to get an earlier start number so he wouldn't miss his flight. Mr Backpack held the lead all up until the 3rd to last person to drop in for the day.. Who that was you'll find out by reading this until the end.

Can you go as big on a hip (Going big at Hips nightclub does NOT count) on your snowboard as Terje does on his snowskate? PS! No bindings.

Liquid Steel 2

Liquid Steel at Kaprun Castle - Volcom parties you don't want to miss.

crowd surf to bar
Clearly the crowd liked what they heard, so when the Liquid Steel singer said he needed a beer, the fans were quick to accommodate his wish"

Pervs
Rookie thinking he can teach an old dog new tricks. Yes it is ok to stare at girls in bars, especially those that serve beer

End section
Here's a view of the final third of the course.. Our course was gnarly and technical and claiming many victims, particularly the "Mausefalle" section that was fenced off.

racesuit
Wearing a racesuit makes you ride so fast that even seasoned paparazzi like Vernon Deck can't catch you sharply on film

150kilos of anger
Here's our good friend and chief Arlberg cotton pusher Max Alber caught on film merely a split hundreth of a second before lacerating the final bank of the course

Epic food
Amazing grinds all day, served by the Kitz Snowboard club volunteers.. Thank you very much guys

Levi Schnaps
Volcom rider Levi Luggen from Wallis goes for the almost compulsory pre drop-in schnaps shot.

Tonton-bottle
Tonton Holland needed more than just one shot

Iker on course
Representing the Basque's country's finest, Iker confidently slid into 4th place.. Here he is shown doing a textbook toe-edge turn.. All base & no edge.

One of hardest turns
This bank, or berm if you prefer claimed a lot of victims too

MOntafon Sveti
Here's our Gargellen organizer friend, working his way through the Mausefall.. Thanks for all your help Sveti, Michael and Enol

Setup overview
Classic tunes, free beer and food AND snowboarding with your best friends… It doesn't get much better than that

Terje 2nd turn
Here's the Man, the Myth & the legend making the hard look oh-so easy. Where others fall over and eat shit due to bumps, holes, ice and cracks, it is as if a choppy ocean turns glassy just as Terje drops in. Perfect posture and gliding into 1st place WITH his backpack on, until nearly the very end of the race.. Bio food WORKS kids.

Arthur en route
Here's Arthur Longo a few banks away from victory.. Note the high line skiers.. 2 banked event entries & 2 victories?!? Maybe you should put this Olympic thing to rest and just do Banked events from now on?

Champflying the flag
Champ flying the flag: Not only did he win, he also helped with rigging down.. True champ

TOp3girls
Congrats to our female winners, 2 of them from Montafon, wow.

Top4minusTerje
The fastest men of the day, Arthur (Terje missing, had to catch a flight) local hero Björn Hartweger and Iker Fernandez

Top3 juniors
Top 3 Junior division, they may be young but they sure were fast

Hoerl and Terje
Big thanks to these 2 guys for making the 1st Kitz Banked slalom what it is. One day you'll be the Mayor of Kaprun Christian

Active hotel view
This is only one of at least 101 reasons WHY you have to stay at Active Hotel Leitner if in Kaprun

Thanks to the Montafon Banked crew for coming over and giving pointers construction and shaping and Nitro Snowboards for co-sponsoring the event as well as all volunteers, media, helpers and last but not least riders for coming to the race, in spite of a highly dubious weather forecast.

Big ups to Kitzsteinhorn mountain aka Christian Hörl, Lippi, Ali Z and the Kitz shaping team.. None of this would have been possible without you. Let's make it even better next year.
And a very special thanks to Rosmarie, Andreas and the entire team at our partner Hotel Active by Leitner.

Thanks also to Nitro Snowboards for the support!

Save Saint Martin #sxmstrong
6 months have passed since hurricane Irma destroyed the North islands in the Caribbean, the damages on my native island of Saint Martin is so heavy that it's only slowly step by step that we keep moving forward. But it is with extraordinary courage and hard work that the locals lead the fight to get back our little paradise with the hope and faith to rebuild everything to make it even a better place. Being far away and feeling helpless to not be able to help my island knowing what they are going through I decided to create an association to raise money to help rebuild the surf clubs of Saint Martin where I begin surfing, because it seems to me essential for the balance of young generations and the waves’ passionate to continue surfing and smiling. A huge thank you to Monster Energy for supporting this cause and helping the recovery of the surf clubs of Saint Martin with new surfboards and  we decide to do this little video when I came back home for the first time after the hurricane in honor of the inspiring fearless Saint Martin’s citizen who stayed and stand up strong through all the hard time. And shown despite the damage the unconditional beauty of the island. You can help rebuilding Saint Martin’s surf club by donating on that link : https://www.helloasso.com/associations/save-saint-martin-surf-clubs/formulaires/1/widget Also article of the association on my blog : http://www.maudlecar.fr/faites-don-save-saint-martin-surf-clubs/ #sxmstrong

SKATEBOARDING COPENHAGEN W/ CHRIS PFANNER, COLLIN PROVOST, MILTON MARTINEZ, ALEC MAJERUS
WE HIT SOME OF THE BEST SKATE SPOTS IN COPENHAGEN AND ALEC MAJERUS NAILS THE ELUSIVE (AND MASSIVE) 14-STAIR RAIL We recently found ourselves in Copenhagen, Denmark for the annual CPH Pro skate contest and met up with veteran Volcom team rider and local hero Rune Glifberg to show us around the city. After hopping on our bikes with the crew (Chris Pfanner, Collin Provost, Milton Martinez, Alec Majerus) and getting a first-hand look at the Danish capital, we decided it was time to hit some of Copenhagen’s best skateparks. SKATE SCENE IN COPENHAGEN Copenhagen really has done an amazing job making the city welcoming to skaters, or maybe it’s just the people. All of the locals seem to have the mindset of “live and let live.” Besides letting skaters from around the world takeover their city for a week for the CPH Pro, Copenhagen has built some of the world’s most amazing skateparks and even a lot of the infrastructure in the city seems like it was made to skate. The last couple days of the trip were plagued with off and on rain, and since we had an open agenda and already did the obligatory Copenhagen canal tour, everyone just wanted to skate. The contest transforms the city to a great big skateboard festival with skateboarders dominating the city picture. Everywhere you look there are skateboarders from all over the world riding their boards and bikes around town. All in all, this festive week is the perfect backdrop to go in depth with the Volcom Skate Team. -Rune Glifberg MAKESHIFT CITY SPOT In a brief period of dryness, we had to take advantage, so we hit the streets on our bikes to skate all of the spots we’ve been seeing during the week. We pulled up to a spot that Rune had saw, but we weren’t even sure if it was skatable as he had just seen it in passing. After arrival, we took a quick glance and it looked highly questionable: a very long mellow bank that leads up to some high metal poles sticking out from the ground. To most of the crew, it didn’t look that skateable, but to Pfanner, it was his specialty. After a quick roll up, he ollied it first try! A few more tries later he was rolling away from a backside 180 as the rain slowly started again and forced us to find cover elsewhere. DIY BRIDGE SPOT Under a bridge by the highways entering the city there is a DIY skatepark that the locals have constantly been building. Only a few months back, Collin was out here on the Volcom X Harley motorcycle trip and he was astonished at how much they added to it since then. The boys quickly fired it up and Collin and Milton were going off, flying around everywhere under the bridge while the locals were chatting it up with the rest of the crew and watching all the action. FLAT GROUND AND THE DISH SPOT Just out from under the bridge was a park with a playground, some ledges, and a lot of the other dudes just chilling and skating flatground. Sometime during the sesh, a local skater showed up with a little Vespa scooter and Pfanner and Collin wondered if they could ollie over it. The guy was skeptical, but let them try. Almost instantly, the guys were nailing tricks over and over and the dude was happily surprised. After the DIY spot, we headed back into the city to hit more spots. During the week in Copenhagen cruising around the city, we spotted this interesting dish spot at a public park not too far from our hotel, so we decided to check it out. Collin had a field day as he loves skating small and odd transitions. The guy can kickflip off the side of a curb! Everyone was having an awesome time just kicking it in the park, watching Collin and people watching. It wasn’t too long until the rain came back and we were forced to retreat to the hotel. THE HOSPITAL On the very last day we decided to try and hit a spot before we all had to catch our flights back home. Alec had seen this rail in a skate video that he knew was in Copenhagen, but he didn’t quite know where it was. After asking some local skaters, we got a pin to the local hospital, so we decided to go and try to skate it. Turns out, the hospital was a huge complex with multiple buildings and we still weren’t sure where the rail was. Thanks to Google satellite images, we located the massive 14 stair rail. Skaters call this rail a “shotgun rail” because it has two parallel rails about seven inches apart from each other, resembling a shotgun barrel. Alec said he always wanted to grind one with each truck on a different rail, and after a few tries, mission accomplished! Ending the trip at a high point and checking one off the bucket list was not a very bad way to end a trip to the happiest place on earth. Thank you, Copenhagen!   "I WENT TO COPENHAGEN THREE YEARS AGO FOR THE FIRST TIME AND EVER SINCE THEN IT'S BEEN ONE OF MY FAVORITE PLACES TO VISIT." -ALEC

HITCH A RIDE WITH OUR SKATE TEAM AS THEY TAKE A CANAL TOUR THROUGH COPENHAGEN'S BEAUTIFUL AND ICONIC WATERWAYS
HITCH A RIDE WITH OUR SKATE TEAM AS THEY TAKE A CANAL TOUR THROUGH COPENHAGEN'S BEAUTIFUL AND ICONIC WATERWAYS After the CPH Open contest was over, which was the reason we ventured to Copenhagen, we arranged a boat ride with our friend Rasmaus (I think that's his name?!) to let the crew relax and get a different perspective of Rune Glifberg’s hometown of Copenhagen. Rune put it best when he said, "The appearance of the city is a lot different from a boat ride. There's a quietness in the canals that doesn’t exist on the streets." The crew (Louie Lopez, Arto Saari, Chris Pfanner, Rune) hopped on their bikes and rode down to the canal where the boat was docked. We had a case of beer, some decent weather, good company, and were off on a canal tour of Copenhagen – it was going to be a good afternoon. COPENHAGEN CANALS Rune was right, there was a quietness out on the canals that you didn’t get in the streets and it was extremely refreshing. Louie Lopez has been to Copenhagen a few times, but never had experienced a full boat tour around the city, and he was stoked. Once everyone got their sea legs, we were off! Rune instantly started to point out all of the interesting things you could see from sea level: historic buildings, different neighborhoods, and some of the oldest parts of the city. Arto and Pfanner had a hard time putting their cameras down. There was just so much to see. RECOMMENDED CANAL TOURS IN COPENHAGEN: Canal Tours Copenhagen - 4.5 stars The Grand Tour of Copenhagen - 4.1 stars Kanalrundfarten - 4.4 stars Nettobadene - 4.3 stars This summer I wanted to show the team all the canals and crazy scenery you can see from the water. The appearance of the city is a lot different from a boat ride. There is a quietness in the canals that doesn’t exist on the streets, so it’s a nice escape from all the madness of the CPH Open contest. The contest is legendary by now, and the energy around the whole city is really mind-blowing when you live here. -Rune Glifberg SCENERY ON THE COPENHAGEN CANALS Not too far into our boat ride we got stopped by the police, yes, the police boat. They were only checking to make sure that the boat had enough life jackets for everyone and once they recognized Rune, they let us continue on our journey. You can’t give local Danish legend Rune Glifberg any trouble! All along our ride there was something to see. Huge 19th century tall ships, some sunken ships, and a lot of curious tourists on the shore. One of the most interesting sights of all were these floating shantytowns just outside of Christiania. Residents had built their own homes out of other people’s trash, made it float, and now lived on the water. It really tripped out Louie and Alec. They said it was probably the craziest thing they’ve seen in Copenhagen. Nothing like a graffiti-ridden trailer floating on the water!  "COPENHAGEN IS KIND OF A WONDERLAND FOR EVERYONE THAT APPRECIATES A LITTLE BIT OF FREEDOM AND ENJOYS THE 'LIVE AND LET LIVE' MENTALITY." -PFANNER   Heading back to dock the boat, everyone was pretty quiet. They were taking in the beautiful scenes around them and were enjoying the last fleeting moments together cruising through the canals of Copenhagen. Just in time, too, as the skies started to darken towards the end of our route, we docked our boat in a hurry right before it started to rain. Luckily, it was just a passing shower and we were all able to hop back on our bikes and make it back to the hotel just as planned.

RIDING BIKES THROUGH COPENHAGEN W/ ALEC MAJERUS, LOUIE LOPEZ, COLLIN PROVOST, RUNE GLIFBERG
THE SKATE TEAM TRADES SKATEBOARDS FOR BIKES TO TOUR THROUGH COPENHAGEN, DENMARK WITH A STOP AT THE HIPPIE FREETOWN OF CHRISTIANIA The Volcom Skate Team recently traveled to Copenhagen, Denmark for the CPH Pro and found some spare time after the contest, so they decided to hang out with local legend and longtime Volcom team rider Rune Glifberg for a couple days to get the true Copenhagen experience on two wheels before getting an authentic Copenhagen canal tour. RIDING BIKES IN COPENHAGEN There really is something magical about Copenhagen, Denmark. Chris Pfanner, Arto Saari, Louie Lopez and Alec Majerus all mentioned, at one point or another, that the city and people of Copenhagen really have it figured out. Not only is Copenhagen one of the cleanest cities in the world, but it is also one of the healthiest. One of the main reasons is that the infrastructure is designed to promote a pedestrian and cycling culture rather than driving. Normally on skate trips, the crew packs into a van and drives to a spot and skates for hours. In Copenhagen, you travel by bike like a pack of wolves. As Alec pointed out, "Biking around from spot to spot is fun and keeps your legs warm." A perfect activity for skateboarders.   WHERE TO RENT BIKES IN COPENHAGEN In Copenhagen, the majority of people ride a bike, and if you want to embrace the city as the locals do, you'll want to rent a bike from one of the many establishments located throughout the city. Whether it's a touchscreen-enabled, navigation-friendly bike from Bycyklen, a simple city bike you can access on the street 24/7 from Donkey Republic, or a secondhand bike advocating a philanthropic cause from Baisikeli, there is no shortage of choices. RECOMMENDED BIKE RENTALS IN COPENHAGEN: Donkey Republic 24/7 Bike Rental - 5 stars Copenhagen Bike Rental - 4.8 stars Copenhagen Bicycle ApS - 4.2 stars Baisikeli - 4 stars beCopenhagen Sightseeing & Bikes - 4.9 stars Bike Rental Copenhagen - 4.6 stars Summertime in Copenhagen makes it one of the best cities in the world. Short lived and with a seasonal bloom. Our summers work as a breath of fresh air from our long winters that seem to last forever sometimes. Sharing our summers with the skateboard world is such a fun thing. Riding bikes around with the Volcom team and just enjoying the warm weather and the energized summer pulse of the city. -Rune Glifberg HIPPIE FREETOWN OF CHRISTIANIA Our hotel was located right next to the train station where there were bikes everywhere, but we were lucky enough to be able to rent bikes from the hotel – all 12 of us! On the first day we were waiting for everyone to get in to town, but we already got our bikes and Collin Provost was ready to explore. First stop?! Christiania! Like travelling back in time, Christiania is like old town Copenhagen which operates on its own rules. A self-governing gypsy village located somewhat on the outskirts of town. It was only a couple miles away which was perfect for a nice little bike ride, and with all of our friends and other skaters coming to town for the contest, it served as the unofficial meeting place all week. Needless to say, everyone on the trip knew the route to Christiania by heart before the trip was over. Bike ownership is pretty loose in Copenhagen and Collin got his bike stolen within the first couple days. No worries though, he just took another bike that seemed unwanted (and unlocked) and really made it his own for the rest of his time in Copenhagen, putting on stickers and tagging it. THE CITY OF COPENHAGEN One of the highlights of riding bikes in Copenhagen with such a big squad is that you can stop and look at whatever interests you along the way without having to find a place to park your car, pile out, and pile back in. One of our European riders Victor “Doobie” Pellagrin was also with us and he doesn’t know how to not have a good time! Romping around on bikes was second nature to him. He mentioned that he used to race motocross as a kid and that his father was a world-renowned racer as well. It all made sense when he was popping wheelies for 50 feet down the road and taking the poor hotel bikes off-roading. The architecture is really something to admire and everywhere we looked we saw some cool building nestled between the busy cobblestone streets. The different building colors, old school architect, and many towers and spires which populate the city give Copenhagen a feel like no other.   "BIKING AROUND THE CITY IS EPIC. AMAZING ARCHITECTURE AND VIEWS CONSTANTLY AND IT'S FASTER THAN DRIVING AROUND IN A CAR. YOU CAN PULL UP TO A SPOT AND BE WARMED UP AND READY TO GO!" -LOUIE

THIS IS SOUP BOWL
  Originally William Aliotti comes from Caribbean Islands, even if he spends most of his time in Hossegor now. Couple weeks ago, straight after his winning at the Nazare Challenge, Willy took the decision to fly to Barbados for one of the best swell ever there. Soup Bowl is a beast, hard to tame, especially backside but William loves barrel, any stance!!! Enjoy 2minutes and half of perfect surfing in boardshort!
