    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.

    Burgerama 4 || Day 2 with Volcom Womens!

    Day 2 at Burgerama 4 was another music filled day of fun! With so many acts to see, we literally never stopped walking around! The heat seemed to go down day 2 and the crowds seemed more relaxed yet the vibe remained positive & energetic!   The first act we got to catch was Colleen Green who made us swoon!  The crowd seemed entranced by her voice & her overall cool girl attitude.   Shannon and the Clams KILLED it with their out of this world performance. It was probably one of the craziest shows we've seen so far. Shannon, you are our newest girl crush!   The audience was loving every second of it!   Even the Hinds girls were having a laugh during the show!   Cat Signs had a great set with the badass Christina Kee! We love girls who rock.   Though we are sad that this years Burgerama has come to an end, the lineup & the activities only made us more excited for what's in store for next year! We hope you had fun if you were there and if you weren't, we'll see you next year! xx

    Miguel Tudela wins in Puerto Rico at the annual #Catfish Surf Event in pumping Rincon Surf!

    Isla Del Encantro. Island of Enchantment. Aptly placed grouping of words for one of the most magical destinations on earth. If you have never been there, book a ticket, trust us, you’ll be booking many more after that. Just ask anyone who has been there, especially anyone who has been part of the Volcom TCT Catfish Surf Series in Rincón. They’ll tell you the same thing. It is one of the best stops on tour. The people take you in like family and you leave there without a piece of yourself. Room with a view. You are not dreaming. For this trip to PR we brought along a slew of our team and the island provided great surf with positive vibes for all. We caught great waves all over the island with the crew and rolled right into our Friday pre-event signup party at Playero Surf Shop. A ton of groms came out to hang with the riders, snack on some free grinds, and sign up for Saturdays event. Normally our event fires off at Domes, but this year Mother Ocean had different plans. With a pumping swell on tap the crew made the call to move the event over to Maria’s which handles a little bigger swell, and no one was disappointed, it was pumping, absolutely pumping. Tristan Thompson drawing Desecheo lines with water colors. We rolled in Satuday morning and like we said before it was pumping. We got the contest site set up, in between gawking at the incredibly fun looking surf rolling in off the reef at the top of the point. Everyone knew what was in store... stoked Groms and even better surfing. With the forecast calling for slowly diminishing surf we sent out the Pro-Am guys first and they set the bar for the day, a very high bar. The Pros ripped through rounds one and two, as did the Juniors, staking their claim for the best performances of the day. Brandon and Slims making sure the Groms know when and where to be. As the surf became a little more manageable the Groms, Girls, and Squids gave it their best in all out effort to earn their spots in the finals. It seemed the more the day went on the better the surfing got, and the bigger the smiles on the faces of all involved, especially the lucky competitors scoring perfect Maria’s with only a couple of their peers at a time. As we moved through the later rounds the heats got closer and ever more difficult to advance through, eventually narrowing down our field into the finalists for this years Catfish Surf Series. Miguel Tudela....most likely very excited to be in PR, hoping Dylan Graves is just having a look. Every single divisions final was stacked, and I mean stacked! With the international field that converged on the island for this event there was no shortage of fireworks to end the day. The Pro-Am division saw one of the highest overall heat scores to date for the eventual winner Miguel Tudela, an obvious crowd favorite from the get-go. The mind blowing surf and performances did not stop there as Brian Coutu took home the top spot in an always highly contested Juniors division. The groms were not to be outdone though, and showed their solid surf prowess as Micah Cantor snagged the 1st place honors in a great showing of competitive surfing. With the remaining two divisions proving not be done up either, Emily Ruppert took home the Girls division with an impressive performance in pumping surf and a highly contested international field. Which brought us to the Squids, the smallest in stature, and easily the biggest in gusto and bravado. This crew attacked the firing Maria’s lineup with no hesitation and Diego Gutierrez ended up with the win in this inspiring division of rippers. Bean bowls, a staple in Grom eating competitions. That's right I said Bean bowls. Last but no least we had a special little treat for the people of Rincón, a day ending expression session with our traveling team, and some of the islands incredibly talented local crew. If the day itself wasn’t inspiring enough, the Groms and spectators got to see a special show of ariel antics and power surfing, with Leif Engstrom taking home top honors showing off his impressive bag of tricks. Lets just say it was hard not to keep your eyes on the water during this exhibition. While the right was pumping, don't be fooled, that Maria's left is no slouch either. A very special thanks to everyone involved, our crew, the island, the people, everyone. From the amazing people at The Pool Bar for letting us rent their place for the crew to stay close to the action, Playero Surf Shop for welcoming us in to have our pre-event signup party, The Beach House for putting up the prize for our expression session, and Electric Sunglasses for providing the afterparty where everyone could talk about the days incredible events. Especially to Juan Ashton and his incredible crew for making this event possible. Last but not least all of our sponsors that make the entire TCT possible and allow us to Let The Kids Ride Free. Muchas gracias a todos. Papí and the Grommies...the Squids finalists were legends all day! Go ahead, mind surf it up, we sure are. What a great day of waves. More bean bowl action, the Groms are nothing but awesome in PR. Water color, backdrop, perfect right. Pinch me. Mauro Diaz. This is one of the nicest most stylish groms you will ever encounter anywhere. So there's that. The Beach House threw down $500 for an air show, Leif Engstrom won that hands down. Like I said, Leif won that $500 hands down, or slightly out in this case. Tristan Thompson is smooth as eggs, and very happy to not be in FL at this moment. Bryan Laide knows this wave very well living very close, and also how to line up for a photo, from practice. Sage Kats is a Squid laying down that turn. The kids are going to be alright. I mean how good is that right!? Winners, all the way around, Winners. Miguel was easily Saturdays standout, mid way through a full wrap.

    Burgerama 4 || DAY 1 with Volcom Womens!

    We have SURVIVED Burgerama day one! With tons to do and lots of bands to see there was never a dull moment. Though the heat was insane, it didn't stop anyone from having a good time. Every single band CRUSHED it leaving everyone satisfied yet wanting more;)   DIY tents were set up all around to make your own buttons & color your own t-shirts! Keeping people entertained is what we do! ;)   The fashion scene was awesome of course! A sea of multi colored hair, creepers, high waisted jeans, floral prints & sunnies. It was certainly one of the most colorful events we've been to in a while!   There were so many great bands performing that we just couldn't choose ONE favorite! Every single female band blew us away with their talent and on stage presence. Dare we say they were better than the boys? We think so... shhh ;) La Luz was first on our radar and they did NOT disappoint! In fact, they completely set the tone for the rest of the day. They left us in awe & wanting more so luckily we got a chance to chat with them after their performance. Stay tuned for our exclusive interview with them!   Bleached was hilarious and won over the crowd with their generosity and humor. Here's a snap of her giving away one of their records to a loyal fan.   Luckily at the Bleached show we spotted our favorite one girl band, Colleen Green! She really is one of the coolest cats around and so generously gave us a few minutes of her time to speak with us!   Known as the prettier face of grunge, Clementine Creevy from Cherry Glazerr wooed us with her strong yet graceful voice.   We spotted this blue haired babe in the crowd from a mile away! Soko the sexy French singer/actress had a lot of wise things to say about the music business and gave us some insight on her latest projects! Soko we love you!   Floral crowns + Guitars + Babes = HINDS   Overall, day one was a huge success and we can't wait to see what's in store for us today! Stay tuned... xx

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.

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.
