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.

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.

Maud Le Car x Elle Green
What a fabulous combo: the artsy, French and fun Volcom Surfer Maud Le Car and the genius behind the camera lens, Australian Volcom Ambassador Elle Green. No strangers to each other as they had already met up in Australia a couple times to snap some lifestyle shots. Now however it was our European pleasure to have Elle on our home turf, in our backyard in Les Landes, on the coast of Southwest France. Elle or @hellgreen as we all know her on instagram, was actually visiting Europe with her sister and as we always try to think of reasons to have fun, we set up this little shoot for one of our all time favorite papers, Surf Girl magazine. Wanting to showcase both our spring and summer lines, we ended up just fooling around on the beach, as the surf was flat. We headed out to the little town of Labenne where Maud knew we could found this beautiful abandoned church right on top of the dunes. After that, a good lunch and heavy tummy’s we couldn’t help but wrap up the day in our friends pool with some proper canon balls. The behind the scenes clip says it all. We love our global Volcom family! The wonderful and eclectic mix of surfers, artist, photographers, musicians, skaters, snowboarders… you name it. All fantastic individuals and the cream of their crop. Follow the girls at: @hellgreen @maudlecar
