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.

Volcom’s Peanut Butter and Rail Jam snowboarding series was developed to take a different path then other contest predecessors by offering something new to amateur snowboarding. The event encourages involvement from the community while promoting the local youth within the region.  These up and coming riders put their skills on display in a supportive and positive environment. Competitors are judged on the tricks they land, never on their bails upon three unique snowboarding features. This all ages event has no contest entry fee allowing riders to compete in 1 of 4 divisions including: 15 & Under, 16-21, Women’s Open, and Men’s Open. Free lunch is provided to all competitors and prizes are awarded in all categories. An additional cash prize is also awarded in the Men’s Open division! This year we focus on offering fun contest setups for all divisions and age groups, rippable by all as this is the main goal of these events: gather your local snowboard scene around a fun day. See you on the hill! More info: pbrj@volcomeurope.com PBRJ crew, Madrid 2014 PBRJ Poland 2014, Białka Tatrzańska

Iker Fernandez' full part in Finisterre
Certain things in life only get better with age, like a bottle of 1970 Bordeaux Grand Cru, Real Estate values, and man's understanding of the female brain (or maybe not). When speaking of snowboarding ability though, the pendulum tends to lose momentum as age advances, unless your name is Iker Fernandez. Our Basque friend from San Sebastian was raised on pintxos, the waves of la Zurriola outside his door and frequent excursions to the nearby Pyrenees. Could it be that this combo is the fountain of youth that Ponce de Leòn unsuccessfully spent his whole life searching for? Watching Iker snowboarding you can't help but wonder. Iker's favorite jacket is the Stone Gore Tex in mustard.
