Peanut Butter And Rail Jam - Mammoth Mountain, CA 2015
Stop #3 of Volcom Stones Peanut Butter and Rail Jam felt the warm embrace of sunny skies at Mammoth Mountain, CA on Saturday Jan. 24, 2015. Volcom's own Jeff Arnold aka: @jarnoldairlines takes flight over Stop #3 of the PBRJ at Mammoth Mountain as Chris Martinez snaps an overhead photo. The PBRJ has come a long way since its inception at Mammoth Mountain 15 years ago.  What was a small gathering of local rippers celebrating snowboarding at its core has now become a global event.  The Unbound crew has brainstormed and built nearly every imaginable feature for the PBRJ in years past, but showed they still have a few tricks up their sleeves. Today’s contest site consisted of the quintessential down rail in zone 1, a double “railroad track” rail to single down rail in zone 2, and a formidable down flat down rail in zone 3.  Competitors from all over North America, New Zealand, Argentina, South Korea, and Japan came to test their skills as they tried to qualify for the  $17,000 PBRJ Global Championships at Mammoth Mountain on April 18, 2015. The Unbound crew knows what it takes to build and maintain a top notch PBRJ site. 10-Year-Old Jake Langston locks into a 50-50 transfer 50-50 to boardslide on the train track to down rail in zone 2. Jake impressed our judges so much that he earned an invite to the 2015 PBRJ Global Championships by placing 4th in the 15 & Under Division. 2014 15 & Under Division Global Champion Joey Fava cannot get enough of the PBRJ and we cannot get enough of his ripping. He shows this rail whose boss by pulling a cab 270 front board 270 out in zone 1. Judd Henkes maybe a little small in stature but stands tall on this 50-50 fs 360 off the kink in zone 3. He also pulled a perfect bs 360 50-50 in zone 1 and a half cab 50-50 transfer 50-50 board slide 270 out in zone 2 to take the win in the 15 & Under Division. Brendon Krainer leans into a nose press bs 180 out after double board sliding the railroad rails in zone 2. It was absolutely flawless so we rewarded him with a free Volcom snowboard to go with his 2nd place finish in the 16 – 21 Division. Pat Fava flexing a bs tail press through the kink rail in zone 3 as the sun shines down on Mammoth Mountain. Levi Kaseroff terrorized the down rail with multiple sw and regular 270 spins in and out. He also linked a double boardslide to fs boardslide 270 out in zone 2 and a high speed 50-50 fs 360 out in zone 3. The combination of all these dastarly deeds landed him in 1st place for the 16 - 21 Division. Spring time conditions make for a relaxing PB&J lunch break with all the fixings. Sierra Jewett links a bs 50-50 to boardslide down the formidable down flat down rail in zone 3. Jill Perkins is the happiest person we have ever seen on a snowboard. She was grinning from ear to ear the entire day. Her positive vibes were contagious. Danika Duffy slammed a few times before landing this this picture perfect gap lipslide. She had everyone cheering her on as she made her way into the top spot for the Girls Division. Danny Salazar did what no other dare attempt on this down flat down. Here he lands a board-breaking gap to flat lipslide in zone 3. He received the $100 Rev’d Rider award for this high impact maneuver. Joss McAlpin pops a solid bs 360 out of a 50-50 on the kinker in zone 3. He was hunting for the top spots bagging 3rd place for his efforts. Bryan Pracht avoids the pinch as he shoots the gap to pole jam boardslide in zone 2. Jeff Harvey put on a display of style and technicality throughout the Open/Am Division. The freeze frame here shows a stalled out fs 360 off the kink and over the business end of the down flat down in zone 3. Samm Neuman working towards victory with the bs 360 50-50 fs 180 out in zone 1. He also nailed a very notable fs boardslide through the entire down flat down rail in zone 3. We would like to thank Caroline Casey, Molly Dawoud, and Michelle Tomaier of Mammoth Mountain for their help in the facilitation of this event.  Thank you to TJ Dawoud and the entire Unbound Terrain park staff for the excellent care of the PBRJ site.  Thanks to our judges Nate Bishop, Travis Rebiscke, and Thomas Moloney for keeping track of all the riders throughout the day.

210 COMPETITORS BOMBARD VOLCOM'S BLOWFISH SURF SERIES IN SUNNY SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA.
The best way to start off a great contest weekend is with a good ole fashioned pre-event signup party, which we got underway in usual Volcom TCT style. Friday afternoon the crew rolled into Hansens Surfboards in Encinitas and before we knew it the BBQ was fired up, the Groms were playing games of skate, and the good times were a plenty. After signing up half of the overall competitors in 2 hours everyone was amping and couldn’t wait for Saturday. Especially after taking a peep at the swell forecast. Yeah, so it was this good... The next morning bright and early we rolled in the Seaside Reef parking lot to see what we already expected, really fun looking, consistent surf. The day was looking up from the start. Right behind our convoy was a plethora of frothing Groms ready to help get the event site set up and get the heats in the water! First up was the Juniors division, and they made it known theirs was an act that was going to be tough to follow. There was such a great turnout we ran double beach heats from the first one almost all the way through the day. Seaside Reef always brings a multi-talented group of frothing Groms, Levi Slawson and firecracker hair are in the category! We pushed on through the day with tons of great waves throughout, and equally high scores to match. One thing can be said about the Blowfish Surf Series at Seaside Reef, it lacks no showing of great surfers chomping at the bit. Mother Nature blessed us with calm winds, bright sunshine, and consistently good surf all day just to help. The surf continued to pump all day, Griffen Foy... Little dude big turn! Moving into the end of the day spectators lined the seating area by the guard tower and packed the beaches to see what the remaining competitors had left in the tank. This was surely going to be an action packed finals all the way around! The Reef was firing and Palli’s was pumping as well, everyone was frothing. The rocky beach setup at Seaside always make for a great viewing arena. When it was all said and done Evan Gallen left with the grape juice shower for the crowd favorite Squids division, while Griffen Foy took top honors in the shredding Groms divison. Moving on Kirra Pinkerton snagged a win in the highly contested Girls division. Our final two divisions saw an always ripping Kei Kobayashi come over from Hawaii to snag the top honors in Juniors to seal up a seat at champs, and a very elated and ever deserving Kevin Schulz drenched in sparkling grape juice with a cool $500 to take home for the win in the Pro-Am division. Jonah Carter fins out and giving the right the ole "going over." Many thanks go out to everyone for coming down and making this years Volcom TCT Blowfish Surf Series, yet another great event. Thank you to our sponsors and also Hansens Surfboards for the continued support and we look forward to what’s next! Our good friends at Wienerschnitzel provided lunch for all 210 competitors and then some! When the surf is this good it's fun to see the groms using their power game. Jack Boyes on the backhand. Hair-reverse anyone?? So he was going really really fast. Carlos Carpenter hits the e-brake. The groms at Seaside are so rad we had to Watermelon Award them twice! Isiak Day and Cal Corn smiles for miles. How can you not love the Squids division, these kids are the future! Here are you Blowfish Surf Series Squids division winners, full froth. You mind surf, Griffen Foy will make it reality. If this spread doesn't make you want to reach the finals, nothing will. The end sections of a Seaside Reef wave provide a perfect canvas for any finishing maneuver. Kadin Panesi showing us the ropes! Kei Kobayashi, Griffen Foy, Kirra Pinkerton. Winner, Winner, Winner. Chicken for dinner. Kevin Schulz, sweet turn, sweet lighting, sweet victory. Let it rain sparkling cider gods, let it rain. Kevin Schulz reaping the rewards.

Peanut Butter And Rail Jam - Mont St. Bruno, QC 2015
Stop #2 of Volcom Stone’s Peanut Butter And Rail Jam fell into a deep freeze at Mont St. Bruno, Quebec for some smoking hot riding on Saturday January 17, 2015. Mont St. Bruno keeps the holiday spirit alive with lots of pine trees and red on the hill as the PBRJ spreads the cheer. With rolled up snow pants, skate helmet, open windbreaker and hooded sweatshirt the Montreal locals have a style all their own.  It’s hard for an outsider to fully comprehend the sheer frigid temperatures of this day and the fashion over function mind set. Canadian blood must be thick because most moms say they were underdressed for the occasion. Or maybe the fire of their maneuvers is how these shredders fend off the frostbite. Either way, these guys and gals were getting after it! Today’s Parks, headed by front man Guillaume Fournier, built a contest set up that was on point for everyone.  It featured a elevated lift tower that extended into a diving board exit, a flat box to flat rail combo middle section, and a pole jam to down flat down tube that added some flavor to this fan favorite feature.  Everyone was charging the obstacles with his or her own little twist and spin as practice ended and the riders meeting was called.  Competitors got the full breakdown and order of operations as their teeth chattered and eyelashes began to crystalize.  At this point all were ready to warm their blood as they hiked to the top to get ready to provide some red-hot jib action. You can see how cold it truly was as you look at the riders frosted faces...brrrr. Benjamin d’Hugues loads his shoulders as he gets ready to spin fs 270 off the end of the diving board feature in zone 1. Lenny Rawlinson had the long hair flowing in the breeze as he musters up a sw bs blunt slide 270 out on the kink tube in zone 3. David Tourngny turned heads the entire day. This 13-year-old kid manhandled any and all features in his path. David throws a combo with a boardslide on the box, 50-50 across the rail, and finishes with seamless fs 360 out. Not only did he capture the 15 & Under win, David also took home the $100 Rev’d Rider award with a look of surprise and excitement on his face. Clement Pageu throws some “hot garbage” on this fs boardslide across the tower as he exits back to regular in zone 1. Bernard J-R showing his version of the “Montreal snowboarding uniform” fending off the frostbite by setting zone 2 ablaze. Gabriel Gosselin had the judges seeing red as he landed a half cab 50-50 fs 270 lipslide to regular through the DFD tube in zone 1. The red-jacketed rider stuck out in the judge’s minds as they awarded him with a brand new Volcom Snowboard for his smooth moves. Nathaniel Vachon didn't think twice about the consequences of blasting this transfer from zone 1 to zone 2 as he gapped over to board slide. He was the only one that accomplished this feat the entire day. His no nonsense riding and style helped him grab ahold of 1st place in the 16-21 Division. 12-year-old Samantha Secours pole jams into the down-flat-down tube in zone 1. It was really impressive to see anyone go through this process and we were stoked to see her get after it with no hesitation. Cédrick Lessard is a true snowboarder's snowboarder. She rides with style and finesse as she pulls a beautiful nose blunted lipslide in zone 1. She also gapped the DFD with a lipslide that had the guys wiping the frost from their eyes. It’s no wonder why she found herself atop of the Girls division. It is rare to hear the term “get it while it’s hot” when you speak of a PB&J sandwich. Hungry competitors hustle to get their gooey sandwiches together before Mother Nature freezes their spreadable options. Axel Théoret adds his own personal style and flair to the lift tower in zone 1. This man is a character and his snowboarding is a true reflection of that. Alexandre Gauthier flexed out this half cab nose press on the zone 3 down-flat-down without a single tap of the tail. It was so clean that he earned himself Electric California’s “Gooyest Move Of The Day” with $50 and a pair of shades to boot. Hailing from New Hampshire, Jed Sky travels hundreds of miles to capture a spot in the 2015 PBRJ Championships by stomping tricks like this gap to front board claiming a 2nd place finish in the Open/Am Division. JP Dorval rips through the lift tower with a 50-50 bs 540 out in zone 1. Check out the retro shape of his snowboard because it looks awesome. Gabriel Jacques blasting a gap bs 270 lipslide in zone 3. The landing was pure ice by this time and big tricks like this one had serious consequences. He also landed sw fs board slide through the entire down-flat-down to show that he had both tech and gnar in his wheelhouse. Needless to say, Gabriel was the overall winner in the Open/Am Division. We would like to extend a great deal of gratitude to Melanie and the rest of Mont St. Bruno's staff for their diligence and attention to detail across the board.  Thank you to Guillaume Fournier and the entire park crew that left no stone unturned when building and maintaining the PBRJ contest site.  Thanks to our judges Charlo Beauregard, Julien Levesque, and PL Hamel for the scoring prowess. Thanks to Christina Campbell and JP Bélanger for helping with logistics throughout the day.  Lastly, our sponsors are awesome brands that support snowboarding at its core.  Check them out at the links below. -Rev’d Nutrition Bars -Electric -New Era -Kicker 15 & Under Division: 1st: David Tourigny 2nd: Benjamin d'Hugues 3rd: Lenny Rawlinson 4th: Pierre-Arthur Martel 5th: Frank Bélanger 16 - 21 Division: 1st:  Nathaniel Vachon 2nd: Bernard Joannette 3rd: Daniel Badgley 4th: Gabriel Gosselin 5th: Phil Mercier-Gilbert Girl's Division: 1st: Cédrick Lessard 2nd: Britt Horowitz 3rd: Samantha Secours 4th: Karine Bien-Aimé Men's Open/AM Division: 1st: Gabriel Jacques - $250 2nd: Jed Sky - $150 3rd: LP Dorval - $100 4th: Alexandre Gauthier 5th: Axel Théoret Volcom Snowboard - Gabriel Gosselin Rev’d Rider: $100 – David Tourigny Electric "Gooyest Move Of The Event" $50 and Electric Shades - Alexandre "GOGO" Gauthier Check Out The Peanut Butter And Rail Jam Facebook And Instagram For Additional Coverage Throughout The Entire 2015 Tour: Peanut Butter And Rail Jam Facebook Page Peanut Butter And Rail Jam Instagram

Peanut Butter And Rail Jam - Boreal Mountain, CA 2015
Stop #1 of Volcom Stone’s Peanut Butter and Rail Jam packed up the van, set the coordinates, and pointed it north to Boreal Mountain, CA on Saturday January 10, 2015. Father and son look onto the PBRJ contest site in awe as practice begins. Future snowboard generations look to those that came before which leaves us all in good hands. Boreal’s terrain park crew has been on a non-stop mission to cover the entire mountain with fun parks and fresh features that keep you coming back for more.  The park continues to evolve each day with new rails of all shapes and sizes, ledges, cannon ball jibs, multiple jump lines, and many more. They also found time to build one heck of a custom PBRJ contest site that unveiled a brand new closeout rail/creeper ledge feature for zone 1, a gap to down bar in zone 2, and a rad pole jam down flat rail in zone 3. Around 150 riders converged on the contest zone to sess out the features and calculate trick possibilities in their minds.  It didn’t take long before the boards were bonking and the inaugural 2015 PBRJ contest madness was underway. The Peanut Butter and Rail Jam opened up the day with the first 10 & Under Division jam since its inception 15 years ago. 9-Year-Old Anthony Leyva, pictured above, takes on the down flat rail without hesitation and gains the first ever "Stand-Out" award in his division. Colorado local Luke Winkelmann happened to be in Tahoe just in time for Stop #1 of the 2015 tour. He came in hot landing this fs 180 sw 50-50 sw bs 360 out in zone 3 (pictured), as well as a half cab 50-50 bs 360 out on the down rail in zone 2, and a 50-50 fs 360 past the close out rail in zone 1 to capture 3rd place in the 15 & Under Division. Keegan Hosefros had all eyes upon him as he landed this last try, division ending, cab 270 fs board slide to fakie in the 15 & Under finals. Keegan Walked away with 2nd place and captured Electric California's $50 "Gooeyest Move of the Event." Drayden Gardener had his "A" game at Stop #1. He has participated in the PBRJ tour for years and this was his best performance to date. He was pushed to step it up as Drayden and Keegan Hosefros battled to the bitter end. Drayden landed this sw bs 360 50-50 fs 180 out in zone 2 shortly after Keegan landed the same trick regular. In the end, Dray squeaked out the win and took 1st place overall in the 15 & Under Division Skyler Gallardo had something going on in his mind that no one else even attempted. He decided to fs board slide up the pole jam and glide to the end of the down flat rail in zone 3. We decided to give him a FREE Volcom snowboard because it was so awesome. Needless to say, he was super stoked to win the board and place 4th in the 16 - 21 Division. Woodward at Tahoe local shredder, Alex Herrmann, proves that style and trick selection are king. Here he lands a cab 270 fb to regular in zone 2. He also landed a stand out bs tail press fs 360 out on the down flat rail in zone 3 boosting his overall score into 1st place for the 16 - 21 Division. This photo generally speaks for itself as you look close to those on hand. Mouths agape, hands in the air, and minds blown as Jenise Spiteri sends it to flat off the pole jam in zone 3. Her graceful landing inspired other ladies to follow her footprints resulting in some heart stopping action and close calls. East Coaster Ari Marrone has been catching the bus to Boreal at 6am each morning to ride the park. That dedication translates to solid ride time and this 50-50 180 out past the closeout on Boreal's newest jib feature. She then came back to nose press bs 180 out just before the final seconds ticked away. Ari's over all skill solidified the top spot to bring the West Coast title back to the East. There is always time in life to catch up with friends and enjoy a FREE peanut butter and jelly party! Andrey Trofimov stomped a fs 270 lipslide 270 out on the closeout feature in zone 1. It impressed our judge Johnny Brady so much that we had to award him the $100 Rev'd Rider award. Here he sw lipslides and 270's out for good measure. Dakota Whitaker decides to keep it real sending this fs 180 to flat in zone 1. There were many people that couldn't handle the drop off much less gap the whole dang thing!...oh and he fs 360'd it too. Samm "RedDog" Newman made us go blind with this bs 180 sw 50-50 to fakie on the flat down rail in zone 3. He may have had his buddies number on, but his name shined through in the end for 2nd place in the Open/AM Division. Matt Shaffer was an absolute beast the entire day. Point in case, this the high speed low to hight gap up to bs blunt slide fs 270 out. This only happened after he clipped the closeout and totally destroyed himself on the prior attempt. His determination and balls to the walls riding style landed him on top of the podium in the Open/AM Division We would like to extend our gratitude to Matt Peterson, Tucker Norred, and the entire Boreal staff for their help orchestrating this fine event. Big thanks to Lane Knaack and the Boreal/Woodward at Tahoe park staff for a A+ contest site and keeping it on point throughout the day.  Thanks to Johnny Brady, Kyle Beckmann, and Brian Wilson for watching the action and notching down the scores.  Also, a special thanks to Sic Vic and Brian Neri for their help across the board.  Lastly, check out our tour sponsors, listed below, for their additional support of the PBRJ and the extra goodies that go around. -Rev’d Nutrition Bars -Electric -New Era -Kicker  Results: 15 & Under Division: 1st: Drayden Gardener 2nd: Keegan Hosefros 3rd: Luke Winklemann 4th: Same Christie 5th: Caleb Bonneville 16 - 21 Division: 1st:  Alex Hermann 2nd: Sam Haivala 3rd: Shawn Oniell 4th: Skyler Gallardo 5th: Matt Williams Girl's Division: 1st: Ari Marrone 2nd: Cali Doerfler 3rd: Mariah Dugan 4th: Jenise Spiteri 5th: Regina Kessler Men's Open/AM Division: 1st: Matt Shaffer - $250 2nd: Austin Ford - $150 3rd: Eric Royce - $100 4th: Dakota Whitaker 5th: Justin Mullen Volcom Snowboard - Skyler Gallardo Rev’d Rider: $100 – Andrey Trofimov Electric "Gooyest Move Of The Event" $50 and Electric Shades - Keegan Hosefros Check Out The Peanut Butter and Rail Jam Facebook And Instagram For Additional Coverage Throughout The Entire 2014 Tour: Peanut Butter And Rail Jam Facebook Peanut Butter And Rail Jam Instagram

The TCT Seacow Brings the Holiday Cheer to New Smyrna Beach, FL!
The Totally Crustaceous Tour brought the Holiday cheer to the beautiful city of New Smyrna Beach, FL this past weekend for the annual TCT Seacow. With the freakish high tide that has been plaguing South Florida we were forced to move the event to Flagler ave in the heart of New Smyrna Beach. We moved the event from The Inlet to Flagler Ave due to the freakish full moon high tide. We rolled up the night before the contest for our annual pre-party extravaganza at Red Dog Surf Shop just up the street. We signed up 60 kids and shoved delicious hot dogs down the throats of all the screaming children. The night came to a close and with the thought of sugar plums dancing in their heads the children called it a night. Chauncey Robinson showing of just how playful the waves at Flagler are. The next morning we were greeted with fun 2-4ft surf and another 100 kids waiting to sign up. We ran through the day without a hitch and before we new it was time crown our Holiday Seacow Champion. Thanks to all who made this such a special event and Happy Holidays to everyone! Through the dunes the compound over looks the super fun 2-4 ft surf. Noah Schweizer is the local favorite looking for his 3rd consecutive win at the Seacow. Kids getting into the Christmas spirit with a little dizzy race. Float the Seacow boat. Corey Howell showing some super style though a Flagler section. The annual Flagler blessing take place before every event to make sure there are no little shark bites throughout the day. Matt Zaccaria letting the tail go a on his way to the finals. Even the contest directors get in the way of the mess every once and while. The waves stayed fun all day even through the extreme low tide. Chauncey again on his backhand attack. Young TCT legend in training teaching the kids the ins and outs of a proper crab walk. The sections at New Smyrna provide plenty of opportunity for high scoring airs. Squids had a talent packed day in more then epic conditions for them. It wasn't just airs going down, there were plenty of meaty turns to be had. The Watermelon winner could barely hold all of the prizes and still get a big taste of that sparkling cider. Daniel Glenn during his early round heats, he would go onto take the qualifying 3rd place spot. The winners from the 2014 TCT Seacow!

Great Scott! Volcom's Greatwhite Event Hits The Lane!
One thing has come to be constant at The Lane for the Volcom TCT events, the surf is always there with bells on. This past weekend in Santa Cruz for the last stop of the Greatwhite Series was no different than the previous trip. The surf was pumping all day, and the competitors took full advantage of the gift from Mother Ocean. Aesthetically pleasing to say the least. The Lane has plenty of eye candy. We showed up dark and early on a chilly Saturday morning and started to unload the truck and get the event site set up before the sunrise, with the help of a grip of frothing competitors ready to get the battle going.  There is always a lot of talent in the Greatwhite Series and we were eager to see what the Groms had up there sleeves that day. They did not disappoint. With a dropping tide all day the level of surfing just continued to rise as the surf continued to improve. Up, up, and away. Sam Coffey in controlled flight. Couple of Squids about to take the plunge. Top to bottom. Take notes kids, Johnny Gunn, teaching class. Happy people, colorful backdrop. Free surfers getting a lesson in "This is how it's done." Like we said, eye candy for days. The Lane offers many different spectator viewpoints. The cliffs are getting a particularly special view of this one. Progressive maneuvers killed the power game, we think not. We had to move into our usual daylight savings time double beach format and the competitors took full advantage of the slot and center peak, battling and advancing into the later rounds where the surfing just seemed to improve all day. When it was all said and done we had another back to back winning performance and a sweep of the Greatwhite series by Willie Eagleton in the Pro-Am. Willie is a local Grom in Santa Cruz and you can easily tell he surfs these waves regularly. Following up behind him was Tyler Gunter making the long drive up from OC to snag the juniors title with solid surfing all day. Riaru Ito had a great showing at The Lane and took home his second win in a row in the Groms division, with Jack Conti owning everyones favorite Squid divison, and the very talented Ashley Held talking home the title for the Girls. And to the victors go the spoils. Tyler Gunter in winning form all day. Who won?? Who won!!?? Come on tell us! Winner winner chicken dinner. Back to back winner Willie Eagleton straight up and in the money. Sparkling grape juice, acceptable substitute for a shower. Izaiah Hansen Style for miles. Squids Winners! Your Greatwhite winners! We had a blast in Santa Cruz this year for the Greatwhite series and a huge thank you to all the competitors and families that came out to support their groms and the Volcom TCT!! As always a special thanks to our sponsors that make this all possible, Volcom, New Era Cap Co., Rev’d Bars, Surfing Magazine, and especially Trevor from Penny Skateboards for making the trek up with us and hanging out running games with the Groms all day putting countless smiles on countless faces!
