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.

North America | Peanut Butter And Rail Jam - Lake Louise, AB Canada
Stop #11 of Volcom’s Peanut Butter and Rail Jam capped off the 2015 North American tour in the majestic lands of Lake Louise, AB Canada on Saturday March 28, 2015. The PBRJ at Lake Louise always brings some majestic views along with a crowd of hungry rippers. It has all come down to this as the 2015 PBRJ Global Championships looms on the horizon.  Riders from all over the Canada, Japan, and the United States descended upon Lake Louise by plane, train, and automobile in an attempt to attain the last few invites to the big show.  After a season of intense contest sites, Bryan Kroker and the terrain park masterminds of Lake Louise surprised everyone with last regional set up of the year.  Their site tested the abilities of every rider as zone 1 contained a corrugated up tube to dumpster to down rail and parallel flat bars to down rail, zone 2 had a square up rail to closeout barrel bonk to down ledge, and zone 3 had a closeout to down flat “tubby” tube.  All zones had options for days with multiple entrances and variances for the creative mind.  The action was heavy all day with heart stopping close calls and mind melting makes. 8-year-old Tyson Lewis ripping the 10 & Under jam with tricks like this 50-50 late bs 180 out of the up box. It's rad to see that style is not lost with the future generations. Nathaniel Bailey squares up a perfect 50-50 transfer fs boardslide in zone 1. He almost turned this into a 50-50 transfer hw fs 270 sw bs lip in zone 1, but the soft snow at the bottom thwarted his efforts in the end. Either way, Nathaniel put down enough to walk away with a very respectable 2nd place finish in the 15 & Under Division. Liam Krause was charging the course throughout his heat and landing some solid tricks along the way. Here he locks into a 50-50 gap fs boardslide in zone 2. Josh Lebrun skids a lipslide 270 out on the down “tubby” tube in zone 3. He also landed a 50-50 to boardslide combo on the up rail to down box in zone 2 and a 50-50 to transfer 180 sw 50-50 180 out in zone 1 that boosted him into 1st place in the 15 & Under Division. Brendan Luff spotting his landing as he sends a switch back 270 to the down tube in zone 3. The flex between his bindings was so intense that any more impact would have broken his board in half. Landis King gets down with a technical nose press nollie to fs boardslide in zone 2. His smooth style and no worries attitude carried him into 2nd place in the 16-21 Division. Nathan Roy takes the road less traveled as he 50-50’d up the corrugated tube, 50-50’d across the dumpster, and lipslides the down rail in zone 1. He also linked together a 50-50 on the up rail to fs 270 board on the down ledge in zone 2 and a solid bs tail press fs 360 out on the down tube in zone 1 for the win in the 16-21 Division. Elysha Piller getting through the kink with an over the closeout 50-50 bs 180 out in zone 2. Mutsumi Ido traveled 9 + hours by Greyhound bus from Whistler, BC to Lake Louise AB to rip it up with the ladies. She goes high-speed 50-50 transfer 50-50 all the way to the end in zone 1 pictured above. Kira Lengkeek put in the groundwork, foundation, and installation of this sw lipslide 270 out on the tube in zone 3. Her technicality and ripping style was no match as she walked away in 1st place in the Girls Division. Hand crafted PB&J's make the world go round. Justin Brisson puts down one heck of a technical maneuver with this nose press transfer fs boardslide same way 270 out in zone 1. The judges were so stoked on his overall riding and awarded him with a brand new Fender guitar for his efforts. Minnesota’s Robbie Roethler traveled a long way to put it down with his posse. Here he throws a sw bs 270 lipslide in zone 3 with only a small sentence to be uttered by those in attendance…”Check that flex.” He also landed a half cab 50-50 transfer bs 270 lipslide in zone 1 to scoop up $50 and a pair of Electric sunglasses for the "Gooyest Move of the Event." Wyatt Barclay serves up a sw lipslide 180 fs boardslide to fakie on the up rail to down ledge in zone 2. Jake Whiteburn landed this fs 270 lipslide past the closeout so quietly that the crowd on hand barely believed that it even happened. He also landed a lipslide fs boardslide pretzel out on the zone 1 transfer rails that earned him the $100 Rev’d Rider award too. Needless to say, Jake had a solid day. Andy James was going so hard that he broke his tail within the first 3 min of the finals. He continued to rip on that same board with tricks like this double fs boardslide to fs boardslide fakie in zone 1. This tenacity earned him a brand new Volcom snowboard and 3rd place in the Open/AM Division. It never gets old to see a perfectly executed bs lipslide like this in zone 3. Eric Corbin is a calm, cool, and collected rail killer earning 2nd place in the Open/AM Division. Kael Hill is an OG. He competed in the PBRJ at the age of 15 placeing 2nd in the 2005 Global PBRJ Championships. Ten years later he qualifies again with tricks like this 50-50 bs 360 50-50 180 out in zone 2 and takes home 1st place in the Open/AM Division. We look forward to seeing what he can bring to this years Global Championships at Mammoth Mountain on April 18th. We would like to thank Lauren Tuck, Brenna Spademan, and the entire Lake Louise events staff for their logistic diligence before, during, and after the PBRJ event.  Thank you to Bryan Kroker, Andrew Taylor, and the terrain park crew for creating and maintaining a tiptop PBRJ site.  Thanks to Jon Chew, Matt Bryson, and Zack Chamberlin for analyzing the tricks and putting down the scores.  Thanks to Ashley Gergel and Erin Burney for their help with everything from A to Z.  Finally, check out our 2015 PBRJ tour sponsors for awesome brands supporting the entire PBRJ tour.

Dusty Payne: Better Than Lucky
There are few things more satisfying in life than knowing you’re on a roll. Surfer Magazine caught up with Dusty Payne at the Volcom house on the North Shore. Watch the interview on Surfer Magazine HERE. Perched on his third-floor balcony, watching the waves at Pipeline, he grinned through a thick, vaguely Amish-looking beard. He admitted that it probably wasn’t his best look, but he didn’t dare shave it off, not after it accompanied him to the podium at both Haleiwa and Sunset. He surprised the surf world by coming out of the deepest recesses of the ‘QS to qualify for this year’s World Tour, and is now back in action with a 13th place finish at Snapper, looking forward to Bells. To chalk up his resurgence as a lucky streak, though, would be wrong. Payne has changed more than just his grooming standards over the last year.

RESULTS | Stop #6 of Volcom PBRJ European Tour 2015 | Les Deux Alpes, France 2015
The last European stop of the Volcom Peanut Butter & Rail Jam 2015 went down last weekend in the resort of Les 2 Alpes, France, and it was a banger! Despite the poor snow conditions at the bottom of the slopes and the rain that started in the afternoon, the snowpark crew kept their setup in shape and the riders and audience stayed super motivated. Local shredders were stoked and many others made the trip from Grenoble, Alpe d’Huez, Vars, La Clusaz and Spain. Louis Declerck on his way to shut down the rail Each jam went down with solid tricks on the somewhat basic setup, so judges were looking for tech, originality and style. At the end of the day, winners got crowned, prizes and cash given, and everybody went home with some products. What would be Les 2 Alpes without an afterparty at Smithys and L’Avalanche? You tell me…Thanks to Nitro Snowboards, Union Bindings, future mayor Yannick Amevet, Act Snowboard Mag, Fluofun, Bangin Bees, 2 Alpes Tourism Office, Rusty Toothbrush crew, Boris, Franck Moissonnier, Alex Pethicaca and Nick “Ladiesman” Ward and everybody who came to enjoy the day with us.

He walked away directly to the hospital after a 5 min black out with some missing teeth, we all wish you a quick recovery! Good times!
