North America | Peanut Butter And Rail Jam - Bear Mountain, CA 2015

Stop #4 of Volcom Stone’s Peanut Butter And Rail Jam hit the SoCal snowboarding scene at Bear Mountain, CA on Saturday January 31, 2015.

Bear Mountain is notorious for some of the most insanely nice shred weather of any resort in North America.  It’s typical to see riders enjoy sunny 50-degree riding conditions day in and day out.  However, the PBRJ brought inclement weather conditions that tested each competitor’s mental toughness as snow and fog filled the contest venue. Luckily the Bear Park Staff had built one of the most creative and rider friendly set ups in PBRJ history.  The set up consisted of a closeout to drop rail or rooftop bank gap to down rail in zone 1, a four block/closeout rail with a flat down donkey tube in the middle of zone 2, and a closeout rail to S10 Blazer in zone 3.  All areas of the contest site boasted multiple ways of entrance and exit possibilities.  This allowed the riders to showcase their creativity as a crowd of 14,000 Bear Mountain patrons cheered them on throughout the day.


Kainoa Pauohau originates from the islands of Hawaii and now shreds at Bear Mountain on the regs. He learned this bs bluntslide 270 out on Friday and brought it to the PBRJ on Saturday. It’s always rad to see progression!


Tommy Olivas came out from Utah to throw down this gap over to lipslide on the down flat rail in zone 2. He kept his tricks fully styled out the entire day and took 3rd place in the 15 & Under Division.


9-Year-Old Anthony Leyva floating a bs 180 over the Blazer in zone 1 as the cameras flash away. He is currently the youngest competitor to qualify for the 2015 PBRJ Championships taking 2nd place in the 15 & Under Division.


Cody Westbrook dusts the snow off his board with a cab 270 fs boardslide from the rooftop box to down rail in zone 1.


Brendon Krainer is a super positive guy that loves to shred. He puts down a 50-50 to lipslide pretzel out combination on the drop rail in zone 1. Coming fresh off a 2nd place finish at Stop #3 of the PBRJ at Mammoth Mountain, Brendon tipped the scales as he captured the win for the 16-21 Division at Bear.


Will Keene gaps from the closeout section of zone 2 and lands a rail clanging disaster lipslide on the flat section of the tube. He also 50-50’d a fellow competitors back in a prior attempt at this very trick. Check out our Instagram page ( @volcompbrj ) for the photo evidence.


10-year-old Riley Rivera was a shining light in the Girls Division as she sent multiple air to Blazer combinations in zone 3. She had the crowd on her side the entire time and she was very entertaining to watch.

Cory Ziel gaps over the closeout with a popped fs 180 into the hood of the Blazer in zone 3. This was her first contest ever and she received 2nd place in the Girls Division.


Veroniqi Hannsen continues to get better year in and year out. She put down multiple tricks on all features including this flexed out bs tail press in zone 2 to earn the top spot in her division.


Lunch is a great time to huddle beneath the tent for food, story telling, and to your share your "True To This" tattoo.


Nick Guin rips a boardslide indy grab and yanks over the closeout into the blazer in zone 3. This was one of our favorite tricks all day because of his commitment and style from beginning to end.


Look how high and far off the rail Jonathan McDonald is on this 50-50 fs 540 out in zone 2. He was the only one that could successfully put this down the entire day. The crew agreed that it was a worth the title of Electric's $50 "Gooyest Move Of The Event" award.


Daniel Bergström gaps off the rooftop kicker and settles into a solid bs lipslide in zone 1.


Buzz Holbrook went wild style to land some of the most electrifying tricks of the event. Here he sends a Mach 1 50-50 front flip over the down flat portion of the zone 2 tube.


Minnesota's Robbie Roether keeps things smooth with a hardway 270 bs lip 270 out in zone 2. He also landed a sw bs 270 off the rooftop kicker to down rail sw bs 270 off in zone 1 and a backflip rocket air over the blazer in zone 3 that had our judges nodding their heads in approval. He was super surprised to hear his name called in the top spot, but his overall performance was deserving of 1st place in the Open/AM Division.

We would like to thank Rio Tanbara, Clayton Shoemaker, and Missy Konig for their help in the facilitation of the PBRJ at Bear Mountain.  Thank you to the entire park staff for making a creative and innovative contest site.  Thanks to our judges Andrew Massey, Kirk Kaufmann, and Brandon Reppond for jotting down the scores.  Thanks to William Maniaci, Shannon Foley, and Javier Cagigas for their help with the ins and outs of the contest throughout the day.  We would also like to thank our tour sponsors, listed below, for styling out the competitors with all the extra stoke they provide for the entire PBRJ tour.

Following the success of the joint Volcom Snow Team House/Marketing Facility in, which we’ve held since the winter of 2004, we figured that doing something particularly for our beloved French snow accounts was long overdue. It turns out not everyone can be bought with Beers & Schnitzels! Besides, the French Alps are, after all, home of arguably THE most impressive chunks of rocks in all of Europe. Many French location options were initially considered (Val D’isere, Portes Du Soleil, La Grave, etc) but in the end all roads and arrows pointed at Chamonix. There’s just no escaping this mythical village, or small town if you like, equally adored as it is feared and even dreaded. Given our commitment to making outerwear as technically advanced and rider-appealing as any mountain gear manufacturer out there, then field testing it in the harshest conditions available, (Be it on top of Aiguille du Midi mid-Blizzard or inside Elevation Bar during Scando happy hour) Chamonix was chosen faster than CGT can set up a road block. Voila! Deal sealed We took over a ravishing Chalet for a 3-week period, then sent out invites to our dearest accounts to come join us in celebration of life, aka snowboarding. What better place to get better acquainted with Volcom’s proprietary Zip Tech, Face Tech and TDS technologies than while riding and taking in the stunning, unrivalled high-alpine beauty of the Chamonix valley? A typical day started with a massive breakfast prepared by one of our marketing clowns, then assessing conditions, picking the right outerwear for the conditions and finally deciding, in close conjunction with one our guides, which mountain to grace with our presence. Snow Team riders Arthur Longo, Vale Ducourtil, Oli Gittler and many others all came by for various periods of time, entertaining and pushing our guests beyond their abilities, while showing them what’s possible on a snowboard when not spending your life in an office. Then, in hot pursuit close behind or slightly ahead (All depending on the best angle) was our long-time photographer extraordinaire Vernon Deck, immortalizing perhaps some of their finest riding ever captured on film and video as an added bonus for our dear visitors. Come 4 pm it was Beer o’clock, either directly in our on-site wheels, the Volcom Snow motor home, or where ever the nearest beer on tap was to be found. Upon returning to our chalet, showering & snacking, it was time for massages, movies, story talk or simply chilling.. Then at nite off we went to one of our many mouth-watering restaurants of choice, before returning back home to the good ole Chamschack chalet to sleep, dream of what tomorrow brings and repeat. On the rare occasion that someone wasn’t falling over by now but surprisingly still had juice in them for more, young stallion Vince was always standby, frothing to undo the top button of his shirt and let them chest hairs hit the highly gender-disparity challenged Chamonix nightlife. Would you expecting anything else? Your friends at Volcom Snow always keeps an eye open for every scenario. But that is a story all of its own. Merci Beaucoup to everyone who came to visit us, our guides, Man & Wolf Beer, Chamonix itself, Nitro and Korua for boards WELCOME TO THE VOLCOM CHAM SHACK HOUSE 2018 Happy camper  Snow legend Polo Tornado from Laboshop with style Sure beats a day at the office Valé Ducourtil, Polo Tornado, and Mr Caule spliting Tailgrab with the freak Mat Siboni L'1prévue shop The reward of a good split session It's important to celebrate when you have a good day Vallée Blanch mission with Valé and the group Valérian digs Vanilla Ice Le Brevent side view Our guide Paul at Le Tour David was always the first to sertve up cold ones.

Burger Invasion in Spain
We had a blast this weekend at the Burger Invasion festival with back to back concerts in Barcelona and Madrid! Burger Records, the Californian music label set up an eclectic line up that pumped the audience crescendo. The shows started with the delicacy of Younghusband, following with Cotillon, then some psychedelic sounds from The Molochs. At the time Wand took over the stage with their trippy progressive sounds, spirits were already high, but when The Garden started their show, it completely exploded (go check their stage act when you’ve got the chance). The show ended with The Dwarves, turning the front rows into a mosh pit, with some “punk rock (that) is good for you” . To top that up, the venues were legendary (Apolo in Barcelona and Joy Eslava in Madrid), and there was plenty of Volcom surprises for everyone including a year of Volcom Jeans supply to two lucky winners. No needs to say, good times were had by all. Don’t miss next one when those shows hit your town!

THIS IS THE FORGOTTEN STORY OF ATTUNGA Attunga - The Aboriginals used the term to define "a high place." And that was the exact place our group was searching for. Or was it a feeling? To navigate the globe, to harness the spirit of a single moment in time created by a collective of individuals, to find a higher place for an elevated state of being – Attunga. Without hesitation, we jumped into action and began our journey. A daily diary was written. Each day’s adventure noted, madness scribed. The crew documents in an attempt to record what would be known to Attunga as the most influential group to ever occupy its presence. Then, the diary was lost. Mishandled. Hours of line-by-line transcribing of pure gold vanished as if nothing ever happened. Left in the fresh Australian Alps. A page ripped out of a larger story only to be known to a select few. It was said to contain their unapologetic quest for a higher place. This was the chapter of Attunga.   Not since Attunga's early days had a group of 15 men troubled the grounds with musical instruments and a thirst of 100% Victorian hops and malt which goes by the name of Furphy. This beer, the Volcom Snow Family longed-for. It was their weakness, but it didn’t hold them back. Not at all. It only fueled their true passion for living. Snowboarding. Music. Skating. There were no downtimes. Those outwardly disturbed neighbors, rattled from their foreign beds and thundered by group chants with overwrought behavior, only marveled the next day as the team soared high above their heads. Finding side-hits where previously thought impossible, approaching jumps at unprecedented speeds, riding down the mountain together all in a consistent, but unique way. They were on the search for a higher place. A place which previously occupied a state of mind unbeknownst to their fellow man. This place was the pinnacle of their search. And it was mesmerizing. This was the long-forgotten story of Attunga, only briefly told. A temporary remembrance of what once was. An anecdote. It seems archaic to draw a timeline from memory and not tangible proof. But, then again, that’s the story of Attunga. Did it really happen? We must digress. Continue on. The story is out there. In a higher place that's joined with its unparalleled state of mind. Lost in a diary that doesn’t want to be found. Buried beneath, somewhere deep in Falls Creek. Photos by Vernon Deck + E-Stone:
The Volcom Cham Shack Womens Invasion !
Volcom womens took over the Volcom Cham Shack beginning of February, in Chamonix, France. The ladies that joined us were: Camille, Fanny,  Lili,  Kicki,  Alba,  Silvia,  Jess,  and  @maudlecar Some of the coolest girls from Paris, Berlin, Barcelona and London together with our brand ambassador Maud Le car, flew to the Volcom Chamonix House in Chamonix to be part of a unique experience. Jess Gavigan, aka Juice  describes her journey ! ‘A couple of weeks ago I headed out to  Chamonix for a snow adventure with Volcom. I left Bali to do the trip and then return to Asia straight after because the trip sounded so amazing and I really wanted to work with Volcom! The long journey was made up for it by the first night accommodation. COZY SETTINGS LEVEL 100. The hotel was amazing, and I had the most amazing room with a view, and was greeted with a bed full of amazing gifts from Volcom, clarins and electric. GASSEDDDD. That was a great start to the whole trip, but I won't  go into it loads cos there's too many sick parts... We went to the Volcom store to pick out some stuff, which was totally unexpected - if the gifts on the bed weren't enough we got free reign inside the store (like kids in a candy shop). We got to try snow shoeing, which was a new experience for me! And I loved it. It was sick doing a mini trek up the mountain, perfect weather conditions and the icing on the cake was the house we went to for dinner. It was unreal. Everything hand made, hand cooked. The food was WOWOW, and we each got given a quartz crystal which was all found on the mountains by the husband. It was such a special night and I've been keeping the crystal in my pocket everyday (travelling through Asia) The bit I was most excited about was snowboarding in our new gear. I was stoked to ride with lucie, vernon, olivier, Maude Alba and Silvia. We got to go and ride around and take some sick shots. IT WAS SO MUCH FUN. I loved everyone we all got on so well. And then we did a couple all girl runs GIRL POWER haha The clarins spa was next level. Getting pampered was heavenly and the outdoor swimming pool/jacuzzi was a really nice end to the day. The whole trip was sick. The group got on so well and everyone was like a big family at the end. I was sad to leave. It was an amazing and magical few days in the mountains. My only regret is that it didn't last longer!! I met so many cool people and its an experience I won't forget, and even better I've got sick volcom snow and lifestyle apparel for lifeeeee. ‘ THE WHOLE TRIP WAS JUST WOW. (Haha inside group joke) Big love to emilie, Lucie and the volcom gang.

Attunga world premier, P1 Munich, Sunday the 28th of January
Last Sunday on the first night of ISPO, Attunga was shown to the general public for the first time. We teamed up with longtime friends, media partner, and snowboard magazine extraordinary - Pleasure, because when it comes to throwing parties in Munich, nobody does it better. By the times doors opened at the P1 club, the line to get in was over a hundred meters long. Come 11 o’clock, Terje Haakonsen introduced the movie to the overenthusiastic spastic snowboard crowd. At 12:30, the boy wonder, aka the not so petit prince with his magic fingers and slightly less magic amplifier came on stage and introduced his band LEOPARD Ale. Within seconds, yours truly was violently pushed into the back corners of the venue by a lynch mob of, hmmm… let’s just call them female fans (we do live in #metoo times after all). It was close to Beatles mania all over again. After LEOPARD Ale’s historical gig, Nasty Mondays took over, and it was around this time our beloved Seth Huot (Attunga movie director) was kicked out for letting off too much steam. Not an easy task to accomplish, kudos Seth. The rest is as they say, staying on tour. We’ll let the pictures speak for themselves. Thank you to everyone that came out, Chris Heubl and Pleasure Magazine, Martin Herrmann for photos, and Jeff and Seth for coming all the way from the US.
