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. Thank you to the entire Volcom team of Oren Tanzer, Jeff Arnold, Chris Sumpter, Chris Martinez, Hope Lane, and Miquette Elliott.

Volcom Groms Take Over Hossegor For The Summer!
Video thumbnail: Charly Quivront If you are a surfer, the Euro Volcom House could quite possibly be the most prime spot to stay in Hossegor. Located right in front of one of the best surf breaks in France, it's just a short walk and climb over the dune to get to this prized location. Surf groms from the Volcom team have access to this playhouse, and need to follow only two rules: surf their brains out and have fun while doing it! What a life it is to be a salty grom in 2015. House-crashers William Aliotti, the Caribbean surfer, but almost permanent resident at the House, Leon Glatzer, the German kid from Costa Rica, Charly Quivront from France, and the local Justin Becret, tore apart the local break during their stay while photographer Andrew Christie was sure to capture some gold. We can’t wait next summer!!! Filmed and Edited by Andrew Christie William Aliotti Leon Glatzer Justin Becret

Björn Lindgren Field Tests Volcom’s Guide Jacket In The Harshest Of Environments
Björn Lindgren is a Volcom lifer. Snowboarding since 1991 and featured in TW Snowboarding’s Scanners article in '94, he went on to accomplish too many great things to mention here. However, he never wanted to leave the solitude and unique terrain of his home resort Riksgränsen-Sweden for good. Sure it’s cold, dark and gray for a long part of the year up there, what else would you expect above the Arctic Circle? Then again, the appeal of a life smack in the middle of the great white open rather than living and working in a cubicle in Paris for sure is more appealing to some. And for those few enlightened ones, who prefer the outdoors over the indoors, Volcom’s GPT gear is just right.
