RESULTS | Stop #6 of Volcom PBRJ European Tour 2014 | Kitzsteinhorn, Austria

What a day! Last weekend, the PBRJ Austria went down at the Kitzsteinhorn in Kaprun. Despite a shitty weather forecast, predicting heavy winds from midday onwards, the event was sun-drenched and only later on, as the tents were already packed, the wind kicked in.

Volcom is a proud sponsor of the Kitzsteinhorn snowparks and this partnership allowed this years PBRJ to feature one of the most remarkable set ups.

2DWX_5900Volcom_PBRJ2014_Austria

With a steep and fast “in run” riders had the choice whether to go straight on the stair set to hit the double kinked rail or make use of the two elbow rails positioned to the shoulders of the stair set.

The riders could also just gap the first part of the elbow either straight onto the barrel or the down rail.

The park also pulled a preregistration liftpass small price, 10€ only for the day on the hill! At the end of the day, many shred heads from all over Europe found their way to the glacier in order to rocket launch their tricks down the set.

With a moderate participation in the under 15 category the decision was made that Martin Kikas deserves the first place, for Martin showed some serious commitment and rode almost every obstacle to the fullest. In the category 16-21 the Austrian Nitro Team Rider Dominik Sobe got his tricks together in the most fashionable way and therefore landed safe and sound on the first place. During the girls heat, judges were involuntarily bluffing their cheeks as the girls recklessly sticked their tricks on the double kinked rail. Sabrina Burnham from the Uk presented the most constant riding/best tricks and thus stepped in front when the first place was announced.

The open division boosted the most riders by far and therefore two qualification heats were hold. All riders were highly motivated to give the judges a proper eyeball massage. Especially a small group of Dutch/Belgian riders emerged from their Snowhall breeding grounds in the lowlands and keenly waxed the rails with their boards. But also the local riders brought their bag of tricks to the PBRJ Austria and happily unfolded the treasures they had collected during their laps at the glacier. However, in the end no one else but the German chap Chris Böhnke (Nitro) cleared the roughest tricks in every area, and therefore was supplied with 250€ and the first place in the Open Division, Big props to Chris comboing 2 PBRJ titles and a 4 th place this season. Dylan Norder, won the best performance of the day and will fly to Mammoth Mountain for the 2014 PBRJ Championships. Meneer Norder is a Dutch ripper with a bag full of creative tricks that blew away the judges, he didn’t win the event but got rewarded the trip to Mammoth mountain.

After a brief Monster “Cash For Tricks Session” at the double kinked rail, the happening was coming to end and the predicted winds finally picked up.

It was a great day for everyone and the whole organisation on location was going super smooth.

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, the European country home to the Vatican, ancient ruins, Renaissance masterpieces, fashion, food, among countless other noteworthy things, is not typically associated with world-class waves. But things DO change. When a significant swell started tracking in the Mediterranean, Volcom’s Gony Zubizarreta and friend Marlon Lipke embarked on a plane to Sardinia, Italy, and joined Roberto D'Amico for an epic three-day surf mission that left them with a new perspective on Italy’s surf breaks. The Four Moors is a short film documenting this adventure. Film / edit by Francesco Thilo Sili. “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!” -Gony “I was impressed by the quality and power of some point breaks 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 I’ve ever tried for sure. Food is out of control there. I miss it already.” -Gony “It was an amazing trip. I loved Italy and have to admit that I’m 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.” -Gony   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!

Super good times with our friends from Welcome Skateboarding in Madrid last Friday. We celebrated the Volcom X AntiHero product collaboration at the Welcome Bowl the classic way, we used the good old triple B recipe for success: Beers, Bands and BBQ. We added some fresh Volcom X AntiHero gear, cash prizes and one jamón to fire up the skate sesh. Volcom and AntiHero team riders Daan van der Linden and Chris Pfanner joined the party and soon the bowl got mopped with some sweat from the body tossed and it earned some new holes in the corners thanks to the heavy shredding of everyone. Thanks to Borja, Pablo and everyone at Welcomesk8, Bruno chef, Alain Goikoetxea, David Sanchez, Skankie, Pfanner, P-Stone, Carranza, Danny León, King Cayman, Zero 5 and everyone who showed up!   Volcom x Anti Hero collection is available in Spain at these fine skate shops: AJ Project Freeboard Fvck Kakoshop La Plaza One Foot Ola Skate Welcomesk8 Good times the session started early Photo : Adrian Rios Danny LeonPhoto : Esteban Velarde Daan Van Der LindenPhoto : Adrian Rios BBQ all eveningPhoto : Esteban Velarde Alain Goikoetxea bstail Photo : Esteban Velarde Borja waving the HamPhoto : Adrian Rios Danny LeonPhoto : Adrian Rios   Carranza carcass tossPhoto : Adrian Rios Photo : Adrian Rios PStone documented the actionPhoto : Adrian Rios The miniramp got lit up by Zero5 the bandPhoto : Adrian Rios Chris Pfanner late night street beers with Pstone and Christian Good times
