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.

Volcom Bastille Days Opening
Cliquez ici pour la version Française On Wednesday July 1st, Volcom opened its skate obstacle, which will remain all summer long on the Esplanade du Port de l’Arsenal, Place de La Bastille in Paris. The afternoon started with the official opening by the Paris city council, with the presence of three Mayors of the surrounding districts, and then the spot got invaded by skateboarders, never minding the high temperatures (Europe is sweating under a record heat wave). Tons of goodies were given away at our DIY stations (tee shirt screening, hat customising and button making…) and in no time, everyone was hyped to watch the action unfold. Dustin Dollin, David Gonzalez, Eniz Fazliov, Axel Cruysberghs, Victor Pellegrin, Vincent Coupeau and Romain Covolan from the Volcom skate team put down a demo matching the heat! At the end of the demo the list of ABD’s of the spot got quite filled up with notably a switch fs 360 and a switch flip from Axel over the trash bin, some trademark crails from David, an alley oop fs 270 heelflip from Eniz and a a double flip by Victor… Right after this some of Paris big dogs entered into the mix during a “Trick 4 Trick” session organised by Electric, where the skaters had to land the same tricks that Electric team skaters David Gonzalez and Sam Partaix were doing for cash. The day ended with music and drinks, but unfortunately without the planned live concert due to some tech problems, and the skateboarders took over the spot for a first of a long series of evening sessions. A big thank you to the city council of Paris for bringing this to skateboarding in Paris, Sterling Projects for such a rad design and finishing details, to Cosanostra skatepark, to Carlsberg for the refreshments, Snowbeach, Urban Surfers, Citadium, Hawaii Surf,Guillaume Perimony for the clip and Jelle Keppens for the photos. See you on Sunday July12th, starting at 19h for an instalment of photos from De Paris yearbook, music, refreshments and the screening of the video “Deuxième Vague”-  Entry is free.

L’après-midi commença par l’ouverture officielle par la Mairie de Paris, avec la présence des trois maires des arrondissements voisins. Ensuite le spot a été pris d’assaut par tous les skateboarders malgré la temperature caniculaire. Des tonnes de goodies ont été donnés suite à des sessions Do It Yourself (impression de tee shirts, customisation de casquettes, fabrication de badges…), et peu après, le public a profité d’une demo de skate du team Volcom avec Dustin Dollin, David Gonzalez, Eniz Fazliov, Axel Cruysberghs, Victor Pellegrin, Vincent Coupeau et Romain Covolan qui ont tout donné. A la fin de la démo, la liste des ABD du spot fut plutôt bien remplie, avec notamment un switch fs 360 et un switch flip d’Axel au dessus de la poubelle, des crails magnifiques de David, un alley oop fs 270 heelflip d’Eniz ou encore un double flip de Victor… Juste après ça, quelques uns des meilleurs skaters de Paris entrèrent en jeu pour une session “Trick 4 Trick” organisée par Electric, durant laquelle les skateurs devaient replaquer les mêmes figures que les membres du team Electric David Gonzalez et Sam Partaix avec 500€ en cash à la clé. La journée s’est terminée en musique et avec quelques boissons fraiches, malheureusement sans le concert qui était prévu, en raison de quelques problèmes techniques. Les skateurs ont pris possession du spot pour une première session nocturne en présence de presque tout le gratin de la scène skate Parisienne. Un énorme merci à la mairie de Paris pour avoir permis l’installation de cette structure, Sterling Projects pour un tel design et de supers finitions, à Cosanostra skatepark, à Carlsberg pour les rafraichissements, à Snowbeach, à Urban Surfers, à Citadium, à Hawaii Surf, à Guillaume Perimony pour le clip vidéo et à Jelle Keppens pour les photos. On espère vous retrouver le dimanche 12 juillet à partir de 19h pour une exposition photos du yearbook De Paris, de la musique, des rafraichissements et la diffusion en plein air de la vidéo Deuxième Vague.

Charly Quivront, runner up in Espinho
What a great week for the Volcom Junior team at the second European Pro Junior of the season at Espinho, Portugal. Congrats to Charly Quivront who finished runner up and is now sitting at the 2nd place of the WSL Euro Junior overall ranking! Charly surfed super sharp and was definitely the best surfer of this contest! Unfortunately he missed one solid score in his final and lost in a super tight heat! That’s still a great result for the French Man and we can’t wait to see him at the next contest in Spain at Sopelana at the end of July. Charly was not the only Volcom surfer who ripped at Espinho, Leon Glatzer, from Germany, scored almost a prefect heat, 19.87, with 2 of the biggest airs ever landed in an European contest! Letitia Canales was back on business after a long time injury and she managed a solid result: 3rd place. Welcome back in the water Letitia!! Now meet up at Sopelana in Basque Country on July 23rd for the 3rd Pro Junior of the season! Charly Quivront - Podium Charly Quivront Leon Glatzer   Credits Photos: WSL/Damien Poullenot
