Peanut Butter And Rail Jam - Brighton Resort, 2015
Stop #10 of Volcom’s Peanut Butter And Rail Jam took spring break by storm at Brighton Resort, UT on Saturday March 21, 2015 Compeitors and spectators packed the Milly Base all day long as the contest action reached a fever pitch. There’s no doubt why there is killer ripping in Utah after taking laps through Brighton’s incredibly creative and impeccable park.  This creativity spilled into the custom PBRJ set up that included a quick down to long flat to long down rail in zone 1, a short flat rail to long down rail or redirect short flat rail to the long rail in zone 2, and a flat ledge to transfer down ledge with multiple takeoffs in zone 3.  Over 160 riders showed up from Maine, Vermont, New Jersey, Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, South Dakota, Wyoming, Oregon, California, Colorado, Utah, Russia, and Estonia to compete in the last 2015 US PBRJ Championship qualifying event.  This melting pot of riders was now ready to see who would come out on top and battle it out for the top spots. South Dakota’s Carson Freeman locks into a perfect fs lipslide on the down rail in zone 2 before landing in a pile of spring break slush. Tommy Olivas holding it down for the Utah locals with a boardslide transfer boardslide on the ledges in zone 3. New Jersey’s Miles Fallon stole the show in the 15 & Under Division. The crowd was roaring the entire time as he landed tricks like this gap boardslide full circle carve around the Volcom tents at the bottom of zone 1. His style and trick selection was a no doubt call for 1st place. 16-year-old Edward Enyart has now graduated into the next division after years of ripping in the 15 & Under category. He brought some rad tricks along with him like this 50-50 redirect bs lipslide in zone 2. Dale Mortensen was the first person to effortlessly slide backwards from start to finish on this long flat down rail in zone 1. For this he earned a nod of the cap and a brand new Volcom Snowboard from our judges. Chandler Hunt didn’t hold back as he put down trick after trick in all 3 zones. Here he handles a half cab 50-50 transfer bs 270 lipslide in zone 3. Tricks like this solidified his top spot position in the 16-21 Division.   Estonia’s Ivika Jurgenson was throwing down throughout the Girls Division. She was dropping hammers like this 1-footed bs boardslide in zone 1 and a perfect gap boardslide in zone 2. Sierra Jewett on the way down after she went fs boardslide 180 transfer boardslide on the ledges in zone 3. This last second buzzer beating maneuver helped her earn 3rd place and a brand new Fender guitar! Laura Rogosky’s name is synonymous with girls shredding at the next level. The proof was in the pudding with this perfectly executed fs boardslide in zone 2. Take a close look at the photo as her board is squared up and her shoulders are in the right direction. Everyone agreed that her over all shred was deserving of 1st place in the Girls Division. Everyone swarmed the free food table to build some custom sandwiches that will make your mom queasy. Brendan Sullivan hooks into a high-speed bs lipslide in zone 1 that had the crowd erupt in approval. He was the first to put this down and the only one to make it look completely effortless earning the $100 Rev’d Rider Award. The girls strategize as lunch winds down (Top Right), Trevor Brady tests out the rail on his swallow tail 180cm (Left), and the crowd (Bottom Right) is stoked on Trevor's ride. Wyoming’s Brady Durgin dropped into Utah to take over zone 2 with this impeccable fs bluntslide from beginning to end. Brighton terrain park mastermind Treyson Allen shows us what is possible in zone 3 with a wall jam transfer bs lipslide. He also added a 270 out of this same trick in finals to claim Electric California’s “Gooyest Move of the Event” and Open/AM 4th place to boot. Maine’s Matt Coughlin extends his snowboard season and brings the east coast fire to Utah. Here he executes a gapped out method to lipslide in zone 2. Wisconsin’s Sam Klein must have greased the rails with cheese because he rarely missed a trick all day. Here he boardslides to redirect fs boardslide in zone 2 to help clinch 2nd place in the Open/AM Division. Alex Lockwood holds it down for Utah against a huge crowd of outsiders with tricks like this 50-50 gap bs 360 to flat in prelims. He came back in finals to change the game with a 50-50 bs 360 50-50 and additional hammers to claim the 1st place bounty in the Open/AM Division.

MAKAHA HOSTS THE FINAL TCT PUFFERFISH OF THE YEAR!
Hawaii. So much you can say about the magical place, but Makaha, for the Volcom Totally Crustaceous Tour’s Puffererfish Surf Series is an absolute blessing. The vibes on the West Side are incredible, they are so stoked to be part of the event and see the kids so amped and ready to compete for a spot at Champs. When we rolled up Saturday morning the whole crew was there ready to go but unfortunately the ocean had other plans for us. With stiff offshores and smaller inconsistent surf we decided to hold off for the hopes of better conditions on Sunday. So we passed out entry forms, exchanged shakas and stories, packed up and got ready for Sunday. Noa Mizuno on a sick Makaha runner! The local crew could not have been more right about the call, Sunday morning we pulled up to postcard weather conditions with already fun surf that was forecast to only get better through the day.  We got all set up and in no time the Groms were out there showing everyone why they should be the days winner. Wheelbarrow race?? Definitely. One of the most impressive girls divisions we have seen, Moana Jones upping the ante. There is so much surf history and lore attached to Makaha, and if you get the chance to come down and be part of  the Volcom TCT event there you will be encompassed in greatness and aloha. Russ-K is there, with all of his world surfing titles. The whole Kealauna family is there, it's nuts to see.  The only event all year where we never have to clear the lineup, not with the boys at Kanaka Solutions around. Not to mention the Volskwagon sized grill they pack with them, the grinds are all time. Got to keep the kids fueled for all that ripping! Kanaka Solutions, Tai Van Dyke, Grill. Match made in heaven. And rip the Groms did. The surf continued to get better all day, as projected, and so did the surfing. The divisions were stacked with representatives from all over the islands, mainland, and at least 3 different countries….it was reminiscent of a mini champs. As the day started to wind down we saw one of the favorites, Jackson Bunch, take home the win in one of the best squids divisons all year. Then another favorite Brissa Hennesy with a solid win in one of the best girls divisions all year. Nick Marshall over from the mainland for some North Shore practice with his brother Jake, trekked over to the West Side and floated back with a Groms win. The Juniors were ripping all day and Barron Mamiya snagged a tough win in Makaha to take 1st place honors. Jackson Bunch, off the top, down the line, right into a Squids win. Secret SAUCE!   The winds stayed light all day which made for some solid air sections, Barron Mamiya air drying them fins. West Side. Grown man turns for grown man groms. Bots and Tai, eyeing the merchandise. Josh Moniz. Game over.   Groms frothing on a spread of delightful goodies for the winners. Jake Marshall knows about getting shots with fisheye lenses, Jason Shibata is happy he does. Last but not least was the pro division, all day these guys were incredible to watch. When the final started it was pretty clear to anyone who has seen a beach that Josh Moniz was going to be the man to beat. A task that was not achieved this day as Josh and his Brother Seth made it clear they were not going to be outdone taking home 1st and 2nd at Makaha. Something tells me we should get used to a grouping of 1st and 2nd with those names in either order for some time to come. Josh Moniz, reaping the rewards from a solid day of ripping! Seth Moniz all day with this turn, like clockwork, all the way to a second place finish! Thank you to everyone involved with the Volcom TCT Pufferfish Surf Series it could not have happened without the entire crew especially Clint, Tai, Jade, Lono, Russ K, Khanaka Solutions, and all the boys. Thank you to our sponsors as well for the support, and more importantly, helping us Stay True This on our mission to Let The Kids Ride Free. Until next time Makaha…Alohas and Mahalos. -Volcom TCT Kimo. Trust me, you, or nobody would like to try this guy. There is something about a perfectly executed top turn. Barron Mamiya leading by example. Groms will be Groms. Also this is really fun to do. A great demonstration of what to do with those ramp sections. Who doesn't love a good product toss? Pro-Am Finalists. Girls and Juniors Finalists. Groms and Squids winners.

Peanut Butter And Rail Jam - Stevens Pass, WA 2015
Stop #9 of Volcom’s Peanut Butter and Rail Jam stormed into the Northwest at Stevens Pass, WA on Saturday March 14, 2015. PBRJ competitors gather for the riders meeting as they get ready to attack the contest venue in the rain. The Northwest region of North America has seen numerous Pineapple Express systems role through this season. This has led to warmer that usual temperatures and an abundance of rain instead of the usual white gold. Regardless, the Stevens Pass park staff fired up their snow cats to harvest as much snow as they could in order to put together a solid PBRJ site. The site consisted of a flat bar/corrugated tube to transferable down rail in zone 1, a “shark fin” up ledge over a closeout rail in zone 2, a corrugated pole jam to down box and flat ledge with elbow rail in zone 3. It was very impressive that the park crew was able to work their magic with the very challenging snow pack. The site was set but the challenges did not stop there. Saturday was also calling for heavy rain and windy conditions that had some question if the contest was going to be cancelled. After little or no debate the PBRJ crew and competitors put on their rain gear, ventured to the contest venue, and pulled off a solid event in “True To This” fashion. Milo Malkoski was ripping through the zones with tricks like this 50-50 transfer lipslide in zone 1 Matteo Soltane gaps to lipslide on the elbow rail to transfer boardsldie on the unseen box behind the closeout rail in zone 3. Keala Cole blasts a huge fs 360 indy grab off of the corrugated tube in zone 3. He also 50-50'd the up ledge to front flip out in zone 2 and went gap boardslide in zone 1 that solidified a winning performance in the 15 & Under Division. This high speed gap lipslide perfectly touched down on both rail and ledge for that added amount of steeze in zone 3. The unpredictable conditions didn't stop the camaraderie as fellow riders showed their support through thick and thin. Zach Playfair handles zone 3 with a lipslide through the elbow and 270's out to boot. He was charging hard and ended up dislocating his shoulder. Instead of calling it quits, he put it back into place and kept getting after it. Judges all agreed that his go for it mentality was deserving of 3rd place in the 16-21 Division and earned him a brand new Volcom snowboard too. Austin Busa had all the extras along the way to push him into 1st place for the 16-21 Division. Here he half cab tail taps to fs bluntslide on the down bar in zone 1. It was an unexpected extra tap that had the judges stoked out. Jackie Flanagan getting hyped for the Girls Division to start as the ponds began to form at the end of the rails. Look out below as Jackie Flanagan sets up for a perfect cannon ball after landing this lipslide in zone 1. Livia Molodyh gets down to business with a stylish method out of the zone 2 up ledge. She also landed a gap 50-50 on the elbow rail transfer fs board to the box in zone 3 and a put down a lipslide on the down rail in zone 1 to receive 1st place in the Girls Division. Utah's Kyle Roles and his crew road tripped up to Stevens Pass to throw down in the Northwest. Here he slides through the elbow rail with a solid fs boardslide in zone 3. Canadian wild man Kody Yarosloski gapping over to boardslide pretzel out in zone 1. His no holds barred riding and style was a sure bet for the $100 Rev'd Rider award and 5th place in the Open/AM Division. Justus Hines and the Wyld Instinct crew were in full effect with hammers like this gap nose tap at the very end of the elbow rail in zone 3. California based, Russia born, Andrey Trofimov was up to visit family in the Washington area and hit up another PBRJ for the 2015 season. Here he puts down a hw fs 270 sw bs lipslide to regular in zone 1 on his way to 3rd place in the Open/AM Division. Demetri Bales came out to represent for the Tactics crew with tricks like this side hit cab 270 fs boardslide to fakie in zone 1 at the buzzer. Utah's Dillon Boeshans showed everyone how a pool party is supposed to function. Here he fs 180's into the up ledge to sw bs 360 out in zone 2. He also landed a fs lipslide 270 out on the elbow rail in zone 3 and a fs 180 sw 50-50 transfer sw fs bluntslide 270 out on the down rail in zone 1 to take the top spot in the Open/AM Division. Everyone made their way back inside to dry off and refuel with some free PB&J lunch before awards were handed out. We would like to thank Kelly Clarke and the Stevens Pass events crew for supporting the PBRJ before, during, and after the event.  Thank you to Brian Boyle and the entire park crew for working their magic and building a proper event venue.  Thanks to our judges of Dan Poole, Ahman Stamps, and Cheyne Shoultz for etching in the scores.  Thanks to the one and only Clint Graham for holding the ship together and battening down the hatches where needed.  Lastly, thanks to our tour sponsors, listed below, for their continued support of the 2015 PBRJ tour.

Peanut Butter And Rail Jam - Keystone, CO 2015
Stop #8 of Volcom Stone’s Peanut Butter and Rail Jam dipped into the Rockies at Keystone Resort, CO on Saturday February 28, 2015. The PBRJ event corral had tons of spectators cheering on 170+ competitors the entire day. Colorado is a visitor’s paradise with pristine wilderness, quite mountain towns, and a vast variety of outdoor adventures.  It is no wonder why the PBRJ had such a huge variety of representation as riders from New York, New Jersey, Maine, Tennessee, South Dakota, Minnesota, Illinois, Oregon, California, Utah, Italy, and Russia came to test their skills against the local Colorado shred machines.  Keystone’s A51 Terrain Park crew tested everyone with their rendition of a PBRJ venue.  Zone 1 consisted of a gnarly flat double barrel shotgun rail over a Jersey barrier to offset floating down bar with multiple take off trannies. Zone 2 rendered a sizable down flat lift tower tube. Zone 3 held a perfect down flat down rail that grabbed the attention of all in attendance.  The stage was set and 170 riders where released to do the unfathomable as a crowd of Keystone patrons jockeyed for viewing positions. Maine’s Cooper Whittier worked his way through this sw bs 360 50-50 on the down flat tube in zone 2. His east coast skills propelled hime through the pack as he qualified for the 2015 PBRJ Championships in 4th place in the 15 & Under Division. 7-year-old Sophia Capua and 8-year-old Alyssa Moroco shined at their first PBRJ ever. Sophia wowed the judges as she gapped over the Jersey barrier in zone 1 and Alyssa launched into the stratosphere as she bonked off the barrel feature at the bottom. It was a blast to watch them throughout their heat. Minnesota’s Luke Zajac handling business in zone 1 with a 50-50 transfer fs bluntslide 450 out on his second try. He also landed a full cab sw 50-50 sw fs board pretzel out on the down flat tube in zone 2, and a gap sw fs hw 270 bs lip on the down flat down in zone 3 to take 1st place honors. Watch out for this 14-year-old prodigy in the future. Alex Kass dusts off his board as he hw fs 180s to sw 50-50 fs 360 off the down flat tube in zone 2. His technicality lead to a 2nd place finish in the 16 – 21 Division. New York’s Remy Stern took lucky bib number 88 as he worked his magic on the contest site. Here he is in the middle of a 50-50 transfer to tailsldie 270 out in zone 2. New Jersey’s Reid Smith has been spending his time ripping the Rockies throughout this season. He calmly worked himself through the zones with tricks like this bs 360 on bs 360 off of the down flat tube in zone 2. He also added some flare to his riding with a 50-50 on the Jersey barrier to layback under the rail as another unsuspecting rider nearly chopped his head off. Luckily everyone was just fine and Reid was able to accept a 1st place finish in the 16 - 21 Division at awards. Michelle Zeller locked in and centered on this 50-50 on the down flat down rail in zone 3. Darien Giedd’s heat was cut short as she broke her board on a devastating fall off of the zone 3 down flat down rail. She was okay in the end, and even pulled off enough for a 3rd place finish with tricks like this fs 180 sw 50-50 in zone 2. Veronika Perfilyeva has been on top of her game all season winning the majority of contest that she has entered. She landed a number of tricks including this sw boardslide on the down rail in zone 1 and a noteworthy, buzzer beating, first try boardslide through the down flat down rail in zone 3 to take home 1st place in the Girls Division. Fueling the Stone Army with PB and J for all. Dillon Boeshans puts down a fs 180 sw 50-50 sw bs 270 boardslide to fakie on the down flat down in zone 3. This rocking move and others earned him a brand new Fender Stratocaster guitar. Seth Karlsud had this down flat down rail's number all day long. Here he puts down a gap sw fs hw 270 bs lipslide to fakie and also landed a gap bs 450 fs boardslide to fakie earlier in the day. He was charging all day and earned $50 and a pair of shades for Electric’s “Gooyest Move of the Event.” Justin Henigin’s orange jacket was flying all over the place with speed, style, and solid landings. Here he puts down a 50-50 transfer lipslide 270 out in zone 1. Alex Martin cradles his board down the center for a jaw dropping bs lipslide though the kinker in zone 3. Alex Lockwood came out with a crew from SLC to test their skills against the other side of the Rockies. Things went well as he landed all the tricks he wanted to try half way through his heat and kept riding for the love of it. Utah’s Jake Baker throws down a full cab to sw bs 50-50 180 out on the down rail in zone 1 as time expires. This last minute trick was enough to put him over the top for 1st place overall in the Open/AM Division. We would like to thank Adam Kisiel, Majai Bailey, Holly Blando, and the entire Keystone events crew for their help before, during, and after the PBRJ.  Big thanks to Kevin Laverty and the top tier A51 Park Crew for planning and executing a full throttle contest site.  Thank you to our judges Scott Cherry, Garrett Hutson, Sean Kimmeth for deciphering the mind-boggling tricks and writing down the scores.  Thank you to our Volcom family of Anders Pigorsch, Rebecca Birnbach, Sam King, Pedro Rosa, Alexis Rivera, Julia King, and Jon Strieby.

Peanut Butter And Rail Jam - Mountain Creek, NJ 2015
Stop #7 of Volcom Stone’s Peanut Butter and Rail Jam took center stage in the Garden State at Mountain Creek, NJ, Saturday February 21, 2015. The contest site was surrounded by competitors and PBRJ enthusiasts the entire day. The East Coast has been pounded with historic amounts of snow this season.  This snow has allowed the region’s rippers a chance to ride some features that others have only been able to say “what if.”  With the spirit of shred at an all time high, the Mountain Creek Park Crew tossed out the rulebooks and created a solid PBRJ site that kept riders on their toes.  The crew dropped in a flat down rail to drop rail in zone 1, a meticulously sculpted triangle cheese wedge, with creeper snow ledges to corrugated tube in zone 2, and got kinky with an elevated elbow tube in zone 3.  These solid features left it up to the rider to figure out what the judges would like as creativity and style proved to be king. Justin Kipilla spinning like a top with a bs 360 50-50 bs 360 out on the elevated elbow tube in zone 3 Joey Leon kept his heels up on this gap past the snow ledge to fs boardslide in zone 2. There were more than a few that felt the wrath of the corrugated tube hooking their edge and sending them to the snow. Connecticut's Will Healy came out to the Peanut Butter and Rail Jam for the first time to throw down in all 3 zones. Here he gets onto a fs boardslide early and finishes strong as he exits to fakie in zone 1. His overall style and control captured the win in the 15 & Under Division. Travis Henderson borrowed a groomer's rake to make this pole jam up the cheese wedge. After a few very entertaining slams into the wall he somehow linked it all together to be awarded $50 and a pair of Electric shades for the "Gooyest Move of the Event". Travis's energy was top notch as he captured 3rd place in the 16 - 21 Division. Jake Colman puts down a toe jammed 50-50 bs 270 to fakie in zone 2. His mixture of high speed gap tricks and technicality throughout the day earned him 2nd place in the 16 - 21 Division. Nick Nolan knows how to keep his snowboarding act tight. Here he spins a fs 360 out of a half cab 50-50 through the elbow tube in zone 3. He also landed a notable blunslide gap to drop rail sw 50-50 180 out on in zone 1. Needless to say, Nick slid away with 1st place in the 16 - 21 Division. Allison Freeswick is one tough cookie. She dislocated her shoulder trying to land this method gap 50-50 in zone 1 only to pop it back into place and stomp her trick down a few tries later. She definitely payed her dues to receive $100 and the Rev'd Rider award at Mountain Creek. Alexa Cerra has been competing in the PBRJs since she was 7 years old. The PBRJ veteran was the only girl that sent it to the top of the wedge in zone 2 with this stylish layback 50-50. Lauren Broomall sits conformably on her front foot as she switch boardslides through the elbow tube in zone 3. She rocked out numerous tricks in her heat to solidify 1st place in the Girls Division. Jake Fouriner was so excited and surprised by the amount of PB&J that his hair turned green. Josh Salvatore earns one of our favorite photos of the day with this noseblunt across the top edge of the cheese wedge transfer 50-50 as the snow blasts down. No need for goggles on this one, a baseball cap will do just fine. Chad Strother locked and loaded on this sw lipslide 270 out in zone 3 Minnesota's Chris Eck has been to 3 PBRJ stops this year and has ridden really well at all three. His passion and determination to capture a PBRJ Championships invite pays off as he earned 2nd place with tricks like this gap hw 270 bs lip in zone 1. Mountain Creek local wild man Kevin Kaczynski puts down a sw lipslide 270 out as he points out the camera man midway trough striking a pose before the ride away. Check out the video for verification. Jon Koch checks the flex on this massive gap to drop rail boardslide in zone 1. He and his bib overalls did some serious work throughout the day as he took home Open/AM Division 1st place and a proper round of applause from everyone at awards. We would like to thank Gina Perrelli from the Mountain Creek marketing department for her help in facilitating the PBRJ event. Thank you to Marc Tremain and the MC Park Crew for all their hard work on the conceptualizing and building of a creative contest site.  Thanks to Alex Huang, Chris Szczypala, and Steve Rosal for etching down scores throughout the day.  Thanks to Austin White and Val Jordan for supporting the crew and keeping the ship tight.  Lastly, a huge thank you to our tour sponsors for kicking in the extra stoke for the entire tour.

Peanut Butter And Rail Jam - Trollhaugen, WI 2015
Stop #6 of Volcom’s Peanut Butter and Rail Jam paid the troll toll at Trollhaugen, WI on Sunday February 15, 2015. The crew huddles up in the cold as they get ready to shred the first PBRJ at Trollhaugen, WI. Notice all the face masks and leather mittens yet some still choose the hooded sweatshirt. Kid tested, mother not approved. Most humans are not built for -10 degree weather for more than a few minutes, much less brave those temps throughout the day to perform at a ridiculously high level.  It is easily possible that the Midwest bloodlines have thick skin and magical powers as 190 trolls shut down all features in their path.  The Trollhaugen Park Crew put together a banging contest site that consisted of multiple transfer options from flat rail or wallride/creeper ledge to down rail in zone 1, the infamous Troll quad kink in zone 2, and more transfer options in zone 3 with a flat bar to wall ride feature.  Troll also houses more towropes then anywhere else that we have ever seen. It’s not unheard of that riders in the Midwest can rack up hundreds of rope laps on any given day. This translates into an incredible rate of progression and precision jibbery.  It just so happens that there was a ropetow inside the PBRJ contest venue that had riders whipping up the hill to maximize their attempts per heat.  This lead to some of the most mind-boggling tricks we have ever seen since the PBRJ’s inception 15 years ago. Brandon Kirkland positions himself with a 50-50 on the flat rail to bs 270 into the wallride in zone 3. He stood out in the very first heat of the 15 & Under prelims and ended in 2nd place after the finals. Nick Irwin was hunting for the top spot the entire way. He landed a fs blunt on the flat rail to transfer fs boardslide pretzel out in zone 1, a sw fs blunt 270 out on the wall in zone 3, and this high speed 50-50 gap fs 270 lipslide in zone 2 (pictured above) to win the 15 & Under Division. 16 - 21 Division riders make there way to the top via the convenience of a private PBRJ towrope. Garrett Makenzie flexed a tail press across the flat bar that Arnold Schwarzenegger would be proud before exiting into this fs wallride in zone 3. Eli Lamm had his name rapidly repeated as he was rattling off tricks left and right. Here he 50-50 transfers to fs boardslide 270 out in zone 1, he also landed a bluntslide 270 off the wall in zone 3, and put down a gap hw fs 270 sw bs lip on the quad kink in zone 2 tipping the scales in his favor for the 16-21 Division title. Birthday girl, Jessi Huege, gaps from the backside of the wall with a stylish fs 180 entry in zone 3. She even got the masses to sing happy birthday to her at awards after she took 3rd place. Kayli Hendricks continues to push her skills to the max each and every year. Here she settles into a solid fs bluntslide to fakie through the zone 2 quad kink. Nice work girl, keeping those boys on their toes! Kristin Jessen and Kayli Hendricks put on a show putting down tricks back to back. They both had very close scores but in the end Kristin squeaked out the win with tricks like this perfect noseslide pretzel out of the wall in zone 3. Cold temps make it hard to spread the magic of a fine PB&J sandwich. Good thing there were fire pits to thaw out the gooeyness. Don't get those mitts too close to the fire guys. Volcom's Andy Conrad found out the hard way that mittens can melt straight to your hands. Minnesota's Eddie Fauth sits perfectly on a fs bluntslide before he pretzels into the transition of zone 3. Sam Schiltgen "Nose" how to press as he fully leans this one to the end of the quad kink in zone 2. Cole Linzmeyer might be a wizard! He was riding an old Black Snow the entire day and put down some mind numbing tricks on that beast. He magically put down a switch nose press on the stub tail of his board through the quad kink in zone 2. Here he switch back lips the wall ride in zone 3. It was a no brainer to give him the $100 Rev'd Rider award for his sorcery. Kyle Kennedy did numerous transfers through zone 1 that had the spirited crowd on hand in disbelief. Just when you thought he would fall off the rail, he would push back on top to 360 or 270 out. We have never seen something quite like that before. Kyle finished his day off in 2nd place in the Open/AM Division. Mike Skiba may be the most jib technical snowboarder that we have ever come across that does not have a major sponsor. Everything he did was perfect and most of it was done switch, like this sw fs 360 50-50 180 out in zone 2. The judges all agreed that Mike's performance was more that worthy of 1st place in the Open/AM Division. We would like to give a well deserved thank you to Mr. David Sutton for all his hard work and dedication he provided to the PBRJ staff, competitors, and family members that came to support the scene. Thank you to Ben Klosterman and all the Trolls on the park crew for the well planned and perfectly executed/maintained contest site.  Thanks to Josh Johnson, T.J. Antisdel, and Jeffy Gabrick for freezing their extremities and taking down scores. Thank you to Emmet Klocker and Andy “Always Summertime” Conrad, Mike Pettit, and Mike Thienes for their help with everything in-between.  Also, check out our additional tour sponsors that hook up the kids with extra stoke at each and ever stop.
