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.

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

Volcomunity FA14 | | Abbey Watkins

You might remember Abbey Watkins from our Spring 2014 Volcomunity collection; the brutally talented girl behind the popular instagram and blog "Tobacco and Leather". As we already mentioned then, after being a model for us, she now got to show what she’s really about by doing art for our Fall Volcomunity line (in stores now). We sat down at her studio home in London and picked her brain for a bit.   How did you decide what to draw for Volcom Women’s FA14 Volcomunity collection? It was different for each piece. For the first I was given a brief of florals, so I had some room to move around in that area by adding tail bones and spines as leaves and skulls amongst the flowers. The second I think I was pretty free to do what I wanted, it really helped having met some of the team on the photoshoot in Lisbon to get a good idea of what Volcomunity was about and I went with the imagery I love, skulls, snakes, women and eyes. Abbey Watkins drawing - Pic: Britta Burger We’ve noticed that you usually draw in pencil (black n white), how did it feel to do a colored print?  Yeah everything’s usually pretty black and white using pencil most of the time. I use color when I work digitally, which is what I did for the florals. It was cool to put some more life into it with color. Which piece in the collection is your favorite and why? I love the washed out, old looking t-shirt with the snake and the skull print on it. It’s the kind of thing you can throw on everyday. Abbey Watkins home - Pic: Britta Burger Your home/studio looks amazing – do you put a lot of time on it or is it just rad by accident? Thank you. It’s not something I’m really doing on purpose, although I think it’s important to be in a space that vibrates with what you’re doing. I don’t tend to spend a lot of money on that kind of thing, although I’d love to collect taxidermy and more art. I just seem to be collecting it as I go and hanging it up around me. I’m also blessed with some friends who make wonderful art and are generous enough to swap with mine. Abbey Watkins chill - Pic: Britta Burger You moved to London from Manchester not too long ago. What's your favorite part about living in the big city? The gigs. I still can’t believe I can see online that a band I love is playing, jump on the tube and be watching them 40 minutes later. The museums are great and I need to explore the libraries.  I don’t get out all that much but you can get a taste of anything you want here.

What's DBK doing when not snowboarding?

Our Swiss rider, friend and collaborator David Bertschinger Karg sure knows how to keep busy... Check out "WHAT I SEE" above, best explained by Dave himself: WHAT I SEE is a travel mini series, directed, filmed and edited by professional snowboarder David Bertschinger Karg.  In October 2K13 I went to Bardenas Reales in Spain for a Volcom catalogue shoot. Between photo sessions I found time to point my camera at the environment and the people which surrounded me for those couple of days. Amazing place and great crew. The motivation for this series, was to show the people what I see during my journeys as a snowboarder. Everything people get to see in the snowboard media are the tricks we land, how we strap in and the high fives along the way. This is a small part of why I live this life, it's a lifestyle which brings so much more with it: Seeing places I would probably not come across if it wasn't for snowboarding, getting to know people with lifestyles I didn't even know existed and experiencing freedom in so many different ways is a big part of why I do this. The "What I See" series is a visual passage to places i've visited last season. When I look back on my trips I don't only remember tricks and powder prays, but people, moments and atmospheres i've experienced. It's those details which make a journey stick.

Snow

Sick of sand in your crack? Go snowboarding instead.

Summer ain't what summer is supposed to be.. Scorching hot up in Scandalnavia but either pissing down or, for the most part, Chernobyl-grey in the rest of of Europe. It's been so cold and wet around the Alps that folks have been riding pow up on the glaciers all thru summer.. And, with no solid swell forecast on the horizon, why not go ride some frozen water instead? Speaking of which, here's a clip of Arthur Longo and friends doing just that, up in Les 2 Alpes. Get your mates together & run to the hills. Les 2 Alpes is open until early September and there's nobody around anymore. If the weather refuses to collaborate, there's downhill cycling and just about 10001 other things to do up there. What are you waiting for? Swing by your nearest Volcom pusher to pick up some new gear on your way and GO!
