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.

DIY Spiral Brazilian Bracelet
These basic but rad bracelets originate from Latin American traditions and are as simple to manufacture as tying knots with colored cotton thread. According to the legend, the bracelet becomes lucky when having been tied around the wrist and after 3 wishes have been made, it will at one point break and your wishes will come true! What you need: - For a bracelet with 2 colors, cut 2 pieces of 180cm thread - For a bracelet with 3 colors, cut 3 pieces of 180cm thread ... Step 1: Fold the thread in half and tie a knot to connect them together. Make a knot with the 2 threads on the right on the 2 threads on the left and tighten near the top loop.   Step 2: Form the following nodes in the same manner. The nodes are formed by rotating around the wire 2.   Step 3: Change thread color regularly to create small sections that accentuate the relief.   Step 4: The spiral is formed as the sequence of nodes grows. Alternate the colors, finish by making a tight knot. Tada! Wear it in several different colors to create a beautiful cuff effect!

Ride with Marcus Kleveland weekend at Kitzsteinhorn
The Elooa Step by Step Camp at at Volcom’s partner resort Kitzsteinhorn just finished and what a blast it was. Marcus Kleveland came straight from a powder trip in Japan to a  perfect Kitz park. He made sure to take plenty of time off from ripping the park apart to help each individual camper improve his skills, be it on the jumps or rails. A great time was shared with everyone. If riding park with a small group of friends where everyones pushes each sounds tempting, then Elooa Camps is just the right thing for you... Marcus is wearing the GPT guide jacket and pant in this edit. Big up to Heinz, Kitzsteinhorn and Nitro for helping making this happen.

North America | Peanut Butter And Rail Jam - Mountain Creek, NJ 2015
Stop #7 of Volcom Stone’s Peanut Butter and Rail Jam took center stage in the Garden State at Mountain Creek, NJ, Saturday February 21, 2015. The contest site was surrounded by competitors and PBRJ enthusiasts the entire day. The East Coast has been pounded with historic amounts of snow this season.  This snow has allowed the region’s rippers a chance to ride some features that others have only been able to say “what if.”  With the spirit of shred at an all time high, the Mountain Creek Park Crew tossed out the rulebooks and created a solid PBRJ site that kept riders on their toes.  The crew dropped in a flat down rail to drop rail in zone 1, a meticulously sculpted triangle cheese wedge, with creeper snow ledges to corrugated tube in zone 2, and got kinky with an elevated elbow tube in zone 3.  These solid features left it up to the rider to figure out what the judges would like as creativity and style proved to be king. Justin Kipilla spinning like a top with a bs 360 50-50 bs 360 out on the elevated elbow tube in zone 3 Joey Leon kept his heels up on this gap past the snow ledge to fs boardslide in zone 2. There were more than a few that felt the wrath of the corrugated tube hooking their edge and sending them to the snow. Connecticut's Will Healy came out to the Peanut Butter and Rail Jam for the first time to throw down in all 3 zones. Here he gets onto a fs boardslide early and finishes strong as he exits to fakie in zone 1. His overall style and control captured the win in the 15 & Under Division. Travis Henderson borrowed a groomer's rake to make this pole jam up the cheese wedge. After a few very entertaining slams into the wall he somehow linked it all together to be awarded $50 and a pair of Electric shades for the "Gooyest Move of the Event". Travis's energy was top notch as he captured 3rd place in the 16 - 21 Division. Jake Colman puts down a toe jammed 50-50 bs 270 to fakie in zone 2. His mixture of high speed gap tricks and technicality throughout the day earned him 2nd place in the 16 - 21 Division. Nick Nolan knows how to keep his snowboarding act tight. Here he spins a fs 360 out of a half cab 50-50 through the elbow tube in zone 3. He also landed a notable blunslide gap to drop rail sw 50-50 180 out on in zone 1. Needless to say, Nick slid away with 1st place in the 16 - 21 Division. Allison Freeswick is one tough cookie. She dislocated her shoulder trying to land this method gap 50-50 in zone 1 only to pop it back into place and stomp her trick down a few tries later. She definitely payed her dues to receive $100 and the Rev'd Rider award at Mountain Creek. Alexa Cerra has been competing in the PBRJs since she was 7 years old. The PBRJ veteran was the only girl that sent it to the top of the wedge in zone 2 with this stylish layback 50-50. Lauren Broomall sits conformably on her front foot as she switch boardslides through the elbow tube in zone 3. She rocked out numerous tricks in her heat to solidify 1st place in the Girls Division. Jake Fouriner was so excited and surprised by the amount of PB&J that his hair turned green. Josh Salvatore earns one of our favorite photos of the day with this noseblunt across the top edge of the cheese wedge transfer 50-50 as the snow blasts down. No need for goggles on this one, a baseball cap will do just fine. Chad Strother locked and loaded on this sw lipslide 270 out in zone 3 Minnesota's Chris Eck has been to 3 PBRJ stops this year and has ridden really well at all three. His passion and determination to capture a PBRJ Championships invite pays off as he earned 2nd place with tricks like this gap hw 270 bs lip in zone 1. Mountain Creek local wild man Kevin Kaczynski puts down a sw lipslide 270 out as he points out the camera man midway trough striking a pose before the ride away. Check out the video for verification. Jon Koch checks the flex on this massive gap to drop rail boardslide in zone 1. He and his bib overalls did some serious work throughout the day as he took home Open/AM Division 1st place and a proper round of applause from everyone at awards. We would like to thank Gina Perrelli from the Mountain Creek marketing department for her help in facilitating the PBRJ event. Thank you to Marc Tremain and the MC Park Crew for all their hard work on the conceptualizing and building of a creative contest site.  Thanks to Alex Huang, Chris Szczypala, and Steve Rosal for etching down scores throughout the day.  Thanks to Austin White and Val Jordan for supporting the crew and keeping the ship tight.  Lastly, a huge thank you to our tour sponsors for kicking in the extra stoke for the entire tour.
