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

Stop #1 of Volcom Stone’s Peanut Butter and Rail Jam packed up the van, set the coordinates, and pointed it north to Boreal Mountain, CA on Saturday January 10, 2015.

Overview

Father and son look onto the PBRJ contest site in awe as practice begins. Future snowboard generations look to those that came before which leaves us all in good hands.

Boreal’s terrain park crew has been on a non-stop mission to cover the entire mountain with fun parks and fresh features that keep you coming back for more.  The park continues to evolve each day with new rails of all shapes and sizes, ledges, cannon ball jibs, multiple jump lines, and many more. They also found time to build one heck of a custom PBRJ contest site that unveiled a brand new closeout rail/creeper ledge feature for zone 1, a gap to down bar in zone 2, and a rad pole jam down flat rail in zone 3. Around 150 riders converged on the contest zone to sess out the features and calculate trick possibilities in their minds.  It didn’t take long before the boards were bonking and the inaugural 2015 PBRJ contest madness was underway.

10_Anthony_5050

The Peanut Butter and Rail Jam opened up the day with the first 10 & Under Division jam since its inception 15 years ago. 9-Year-Old Anthony Leyva, pictured above, takes on the down flat rail without hesitation and gains the first ever "Stand-Out" award in his division.

15_Luke_Fs1_Sw_Bs3 3

Colorado local Luke Winkelmann happened to be in Tahoe just in time for Stop #1 of the 2015 tour. He came in hot landing this fs 180 sw 50-50 sw bs 360 out in zone 3 (pictured), as well as a half cab 50-50 bs 360 out on the down rail in zone 2, and a 50-50 fs 360 past the close out rail in zone 1 to capture 3rd place in the 15 & Under Division.

15_Keegan_Cab_270_FB_Fakie 1

Keegan Hosefros had all eyes upon him as he landed this last try, division ending, cab 270 fs board slide to fakie in the 15 & Under finals. Keegan Walked away with 2nd place and captured Electric California's $50 "Gooeyest Move of the Event."

15_Dray_Sw_Bs_3_Fs_1 2_

Drayden Gardener had his "A" game at Stop #1. He has participated in the PBRJ tour for years and this was his best performance to date. He was pushed to step it up as Drayden and Keegan Hosefros battled to the bitter end. Drayden landed this sw bs 360 50-50 fs 180 out in zone 2 shortly after Keegan landed the same trick regular. In the end, Dray squeaked out the win and took 1st place overall in the 15 & Under Division

16_Skyler_FB 3

Skyler Gallardo had something going on in his mind that no one else even attempted. He decided to fs board slide up the pole jam and glide to the end of the down flat rail in zone 3. We decided to give him a FREE Volcom snowboard because it was so awesome. Needless to say, he was super stoked to win the board and place 4th in the 16 - 21 Division.

16_Alex_Cab_270_FB 2

Woodward at Tahoe local shredder, Alex Herrmann, proves that style and trick selection are king. Here he lands a cab 270 fb to regular in zone 2. He also landed a stand out bs tail press fs 360 out on the down flat rail in zone 3 boosting his overall score into 1st place for the 16 - 21 Division.

G_Jenise_PJ_Blaster

This photo generally speaks for itself as you look close to those on hand. Mouths agape, hands in the air, and minds blown as Jenise Spiteri sends it to flat off the pole jam in zone 3. Her graceful landing inspired other ladies to follow her footprints resulting in some heart stopping action and close calls.

G_Ari_Fs_5050 1

East Coaster Ari Marrone has been catching the bus to Boreal at 6am each morning to ride the park. That dedication translates to solid ride time and this 50-50 180 out past the closeout on Boreal's newest jib feature. She then came back to nose press bs 180 out just before the final seconds ticked away. Ari's over all skill solidified the top spot to bring the West Coast title back to the East.

There is always time in life to catch up with friends and enjoy a FREE peanut butter and jelly party!

O_Andrey_Boardslide_270

Andrey Trofimov stomped a fs 270 lipslide 270 out on the closeout feature in zone 1. It impressed our judge Johnny Brady so much that we had to award him the $100 Rev'd Rider award. Here he sw lipslides and 270's out for good measure.

O_Dakota_180 1

Dakota Whitaker decides to keep it real sending this fs 180 to flat in zone 1. There were many people that couldn't handle the drop off much less gap the whole dang thing!...oh and he fs 360'd it too.

O_Samm_Bs_180_Sw_5050 3

Samm "RedDog" Newman made us go blind with this bs 180 sw 50-50 to fakie on the flat down rail in zone 3. He may have had his buddies number on, but his name shined through in the end for 2nd place in the Open/AM Division.

O_Matt_Bluntslide_270 1

Matt Shaffer was an absolute beast the entire day. Point in case, this the high speed low to hight gap up to bs blunt slide fs 270 out. This only happened after he clipped the closeout and totally destroyed himself on the prior attempt. His determination and balls to the walls riding style landed him on top of the podium in the Open/AM Division

Leuven Skatecontest Report -Poolparty and Beach games Edition
To give you an idea of the whole contest, well it looked like the intro of Baywatch, girls in red bathing suits, guys in bathing suits…  Even the funky tunes in the background took me back into the 80’s. I have to apologize for my typo in the beginning, it wasn’t much of a contest, it was more like a family gathering. It was so cool, just a whole lot of friends hanging and fooling around in way to short shorts. But there were some contests though, like the Best 80’s air, hot sand challenge or my personal favorite: ‘ THE BEST FLIP FLOP TRICK ‘, guys hitting the rails or throwing switch tre bombs of the stairs in flip flops. Some mojito’s and some burgers in between, this was one hell of a contest. And to end the day, a crazy bowl contest. Everybody dropped in at the same time and the last man standing got a free deck, bet you can create an image of the mayhem. I have to say, it was a great day with great people. Big thanks to T(w)its, Willem and the whole Leuven family. Photo credit : Joselito Verschaeve

Volcom X AntiHero collection launch party in Belgium
The ingredients to a successful Volcom x Anti-Hero Launch Party ? Some local beers, some good burgers and a “secret” D.I.Y spot. The guys from Volcom and Twits Skateshop had it all figured out. The location was not posted online, only a phone number. Everybody that wanted to get the address of the spot, had to text message us. The phone got spammed and shortly after the spot was crowded and ready for the party. This day was all about good times, having a good skate session and catching up with the locals. After filming some lines and some dirt bike stunts, a best trick contest got organized to celebrate the new clothing collection. Everybody was skating the new obstacle and crashing into each other to get some of fresh products from the collab.

Marcus Kleveland upside down down under!
The Kleveland show just came back from 5 weeks spent flipping and spinning all over Perisher, NZ and other Oz mountains.. Here a nice edit of what he’s being doing. Marcus is always in full control of all things snowboarding. However, from the sounds of it, someone picked the soundtrack for him this time around. How else would you explain the absence of the usual “Justin Bieber on speed” sound? Go Marcus! Marcus is wearing the Kabigtime Fleece in WHT, the Stretch Gore pant in TEK and the Travelin’ Hood Thingy in BLK

Nixon | The Four Moors: a journey through Sardinia
Italy is not known for waves but there's always exceptions. When a significant Mediterranean swell arised on the charts, Nixon longtime surfers Marlon Lipke and Gony Zubizarreta embarked on a plane to Sardinia, Italy, to join Roberto D'Amico for a 3-day surf mission. 'The Four Moors' is a short movie filmed and edited by Francesco Thilo Sili The trip seen by Gony: I was just arriving home after the WQS in Martinique and got a call from Marlon Lipke saying that Italy was going to be pumping the next day! Roby Damico was already planning everything from Rome. We jumped on a plane that next morning and got the Ferry to Sardina straight away, we had to get there in time. The Mediterranean can be very tricky, swells come and go very quickly! I was impressed by the quality and power of some pointbreaks we surfed. Super rippable waves with pretty cool locals or even empty line ups and little bays with beautiful backgrounds and nobody around. The Italians are so funny, very open and social, they are constantly joking and laughing which made our trip one for the books! We had an awesome time, surfing all day and eating pasta amatriciana cooked by the master Chef Roberto Damico aka DiMaggio. The pizza was the best Ive ever tried for sure. Food is out of control there. I miss it already. After surfing our brains out in Sardina we came back to Ladispoli and visited Rome, it looks like a massive museum, with monuments and sculptures everywhere you go. You can choose from all kinds of typical restaurants and bars, the streets are full of people hanging out ,eating and drinking. Having a great time basically. It was an amazing trip, I loved Italy and have to admit that Im a fan of surfing in the Mediterranean Sea. Thank you Roby and family for treating us like kings! Also big thanks to Francesco Thilo for the filming and editing! Eugenio and all the friends that made this journey unforgettable for me! Big Hugs Guillaume
