RESULTS | Stop #3 of Volcom WITP European Tour 2014 | Bregenz, Austria

“Best fun ever” is a description of the Volcom Wild In The Parks last week end in Bregenz, Austria; Nevertheless, “genius”, “state of art” could be a description of the skatepark, and “shitty”, “bone cracking cold” and “rainy” are the words which best describe the weather condition during the event.

Upon arrival it was everything but certain whether the event could actually take place. Heavy rains and winds initially hindered the crew to set up. However, after three hours of anxious waiting and contemplating, the sun busted out from clouds and a clear blue sky welcomed the audience.

Fortunately, the park dried within a few minutes and ever since there was no holding back for the locals anymore who were eager to rip the park into pieces. The new Skatepark Remise, built and designed by Anker Ramps and Alex Kramer, is one of its kind in the region. Inspired by the huge DIY scene in Scandinavia, the park shares similarities with the Sibab-Skatepark in Malmö: A super smooth park with funky obstacles and a unique overall composition. As the park lies near Lake Constance, the WITP attracted many skaters from Germany, Austria and Switzerland, who certainly knew how to rip the unique mix of transition and street obstacles.

The Under 14 division showed some serious commitment and pleased the crowd with huge treflips over the table and boardslides on the roof top rail. One of the many highlights was the attempt from Balsa Marcovic who tried to clear the massive grass gap and despite a bloody elbow, gave it two more tries.
The 15-21 division did not give a damn either and pulled some “never seen” trick variations on the bank to quarter obstacle. The “Open” Division was the most popular division of the event. Many big names such as “Daniel Spiegel (Vienna), Octavio Trindade (Erfurt, Germany), Alex Schulz (Stuttgart, Germany) and the local riper Antonio Aiello (Bregenz, Austria) found their way to Bregenz and certainly tested the foundation of the new park while dropping some hammers! A short list could be a bs noseblunt (Daniel Spiegel) on the roof top rail, a fs flip over the stair set ledge (Antonio Aiello), a kickflip down the grass gap (Octavio Trindade) or a massive ollie up the ledge over the hexagon (Alex Schulz) this heat was going insane!
Just as all heats were completed, some dark clouds reappeared on the horizon of Lake Constance. During the brief interruption everyone could nibble on some “customised” burgers and refreshments.

As time was a limited resource, all riders had the chance to win some money for the bus home during the “Monster Cash for Tricks” session, which was hold simultaneously on the down rail and the bank/quarter obstacle. Everyone was sincerely invited and some gnarly tricks were unleashed.

To sum it up, the new Skatepark Remise in Bregenz was a pleasure to ride for everyone and was met with only positive feedback. The hosting of the WILD IN THE PARKS/LET THE KIDS RIDE FREE EVENT in this park was an enrichment for all the riders and certainly inspired all the locals. It was a blast!

Many thanks go out to Alexander Kramer who was great help when it came to communicating with the city council and of course the entire Volcom Team, making the organisation, despite heavy rains and interruptions as smooth it can be. Therefore, many thanks go out to: Heiko Jäger, Matze Schwab, Felix Gundrum, Felix Pfleiderer, Martin Hermann, Philipp Reinhard, Alex Schulz, Daniel Spiegel, Octavio Trindade, Ante Aiello, Holzi, Kaja.

Volcom’s Peanut Butter and Rail Jam snowboarding series was developed to take a different path then other contest predecessors by offering something new to amateur snowboarding. The event encourages involvement from the community while promoting the local youth within the region.  These up and coming riders put their skills on display in a supportive and positive environment. Competitors are judged on the tricks they land, never on their bails upon three unique snowboarding features. This all ages event has no contest entry fee allowing riders to compete in 1 of 4 divisions including: 15 & Under, 16-21, Women’s Open, and Men’s Open. Free lunch is provided to all competitors and prizes are awarded in all categories. An additional cash prize is also awarded in the Men’s Open division! This year we focus on offering fun contest setups for all divisions and age groups, rippable by all as this is the main goal of these events: gather your local snowboard scene around a fun day. See you on the hill! More info: pbrj@volcomeurope.com PBRJ crew, Madrid 2014 PBRJ Poland 2014, Białka Tatrzańska

Iker Fernandez' full part in Finisterre
Certain things in life only get better with age, like a bottle of 1970 Bordeaux Grand Cru, Real Estate values, and man's understanding of the female brain (or maybe not). When speaking of snowboarding ability though, the pendulum tends to lose momentum as age advances, unless your name is Iker Fernandez. Our Basque friend from San Sebastian was raised on pintxos, the waves of la Zurriola outside his door and frequent excursions to the nearby Pyrenees. Could it be that this combo is the fountain of youth that Ponce de Leòn unsuccessfully spent his whole life searching for? Watching Iker snowboarding you can't help but wonder. Iker's favorite jacket is the Stone Gore Tex in mustard.
