Peanut Butter And Rail Jam - Powder Ridge, MN 2014

Stop #8 of Volcom Stone’s Peanut Butter And Rail Jam tour returned to the land of ice and snow at Powder Ridge, MN Saturday, February 22, 2014.

Over the past couple of weeks the PBRJ tour has had the feel of Discovery Channel storm chasing exploration.  Coming straight out of a NJ storm dropping over 20 inches of snow on the NE, we landed in MN with 10 inches of fresh and 2 inches of glare ice on the roadways.  Treacherous road conditions lead to thousands of vehicles in the ditch and accidents galore.  Regardless of weather, Midwest kids have a passion for the PBRJ and nothing would stop this train from reaching its destination.  Riders woke up extra early and forged their way to Powder Ridge with little or no time to spare.  The contest site was primed and ready with a butter pad to down flat rail in zone 1, zone 2 held double parallel bars to down rail, and zone 3 invoked a 2-piece battleship rail.  Practice opened up to what looked like less of a warm up session and more like the finals. The riders were on it right away making short work of these features set for the day’s action.

The 15 & Under hiked up to the top as the PR terrain park staff cleaned up the lips and tidied up the custom set up.  The Midwest youth were out in full effect as over 65 competitors filled the ranks playing trick-of-war for the top spots.  We saw many impressive maneuvers that sent the crowd into a frenzy including a hw cab 270 bs lip on the down flat rail in zone 1, double boardslide to boardslide pretzel out in zone 2, and multiple 50-50 gap 50-50’s with tweaky grabs held in the middle on the zone 3 battleship.  Casey Flipsen was absolutely magnetized to the rails all day long as he took 1st with multiple stand out tricks including a bs 180 sw 50-50 sw bs 360 out on the down flat rail. Luke Zajac kept things tight with many tricks including a boardside gap bs lip pretzel out in zone 3. Cam Kaiser went bananas throughout as he pulled off the 3rd place podium position.

The 16-21 Division were next to take over and deliver the stinky cheese across home plate.  This division had a plan and put together an incredible show along the way.  Benny Milam started off his heat pretty slow.   Benny rarely misses a trick, much less gets half way through the heat with little to show for his efforts.  This did not detour him for long as he landed a turning point bs 360 50-50 fs 360 out on the down flat rail in zone 1, then a 50-50 transfer 50-50 lipslide 270 out in zone 2, and finished things off with an unbelievable 50-50 gap fs 360 50-50 on the zone 3 battle ship rail within the last 10 min of this heat for the W. Garrett McKenzie had a memorable tail press transfer tail press 180 out amongst others to wrap up 2nd, and Justin Mohs captured 3rd place as he bounced back from a broken collar bone.

It was now time for the Women’s Open Division to put on their gloves and combat the site that lay before them.  There were some solid lefts and rights thrown by each side as the ladies bobbed and weaved themselves through the zones.  We saw some solid shredding like a sw boardside though the kink in zone 1, 50-50 transfer to fs boardslide in zone 2, and 50-50 gap boardslide through the battleship rail in zone 3.  Kayli Hendricks’ riding had insanely good style that stood out for all the judges as they gave her the 1st place nod and she received the Rev’d Rider award earning her an additional $100 for her performance.  Kristin Jessen and Kasie Carriveau entered a dual as they bounced back and forth between 2nd and 3rd place throughout their heat.  As time expired Kristin had the edged for a 2nd place finish and Kasie received a well earned 3rd place decision.

Lunch Was A Feast For The Beasts

True to PBRJ fashion, the Open Division was slated to finish off the afternoon of PB+J goodness.  Over the years we have come to expect the best from this class of riders that call the Midwest home.  These guys prove year in and year out that 300 vertical feet of “hill” can produce some incredibly talented rail shreds.  After a few “warm up minutes” the heat was firing with a half cab 50-50 bs 540 out on the down flat rail in zone 1, a 50-50 transfer 50-50 hw fs 270 sw bs lip in zone 2, and a 50-50 gap fs 270 lip 270 out on the battleship rail in zone 3. Mike Skiba ended up in the top spot with tricks like his cab 270 double fs boardslide to fb boardslide regular in zone 2, Kyle Kennedy charged fast at everything and took the 2nd place spot, and Shane Ruprecht got his ticket to championships and 3rd place with solid tricks including a sw double lipslide 270 sw bs 50-50 in zone 2.  Weirdly enough, we still seem to be taken back every year by what continues to come out of this area.

Wild In The Parks - St. Cloud Skate Plaza, MN 2014

Stop #6 of Volcom Stone’s Wild In The Parks delivered some hard knocks to the Granite City of St. Cloud Minnesota and their Skate Plaza Saturday July 19, 2014. The St. Cloud Skate Plaza was built on the premise of delivering a massive concrete platform for the youth of central MN to call home. Anyone that has had the opportunity to skate here has seen that it’s locals skate sun up to sun down each and everyday. This has lead to an explosion of new faces on the scene that are now battling the neighboring Metro area skaters for the top spots in the Midwest. The 14 & Under Division was first to take over the plaza just before the crack of 12:00 pm. These next generation rippers live in the now, not holding back for anything or anyone. Within the first opening moments of their heat we saw a nollie bs kickflip past the rock gap in zone 3, a proper kickflip to flat from the kicker in zone 2, and a super good 270 shuv-it lipslide to fakie down the double set rail in zone 1. Evan Schmitt was handling business all over the park, but notably he was working on a sizable hardflip to flat in zone 2 that had everyone crossing their fingers. Within the last 5 seconds of the heat Evan pushed through the wind to stomp his hardflip electrifying the crowd on hand and pushing him into the top spot. Ty Stigney followed his own path as he landed a body varial past the zone 1 double set, 360 flipped the rock gap in zone 3, and handled a bs bigspin to flat in zone 2 for 2nd place. Henry Gartland always puts together a solid performance with tricks like his impossible flip to flat in zone 2, kickflip over the rail and into the bank in zone 3, and a solid bs 180 nosegrind on the round rail in zone 1 capping off the top 3 in his division. 12-Year-Old Sean Robertson Sending A Kickflip Into The Flat From The Kicker In Zone 2 Henry Gartland Locks In A Bs 180 Nosegrind Down The Double Set Rail In Zone 1 Even Schmitt Caught And Landed This Hardflip To The Deep Flat In Zone 2 In The Last 5 Seconds Of The Finals The 15 - 21 Division had some heavy hitters ready to take over putting together a show for the mass of spectators on hand.  The guys really heated things up in all zones with tricks like a smith grind kickflip out on the flat ledge in zone 2, a backside 180 up the rock gap in zone 3, and a fs hurricane to regular down the double set rail in zone 1 to name a few.  Ryan LaRue had a solid game plan and stuck to it throughout his heat.  He landed a kickflip fs 5-0 on the flat ledge in zone 2, a hardflip bs 50-50 on the down hubba in zone 3, and a 360 flip lipslide on the double set rail in zone 1 to capture 1st place.  Jesse Johnson rattled off his own rendition of tricks like a high speed fs noseblunt on the flat ledge in zone 2, a 360 flip over the rock gap in zone 3, and a squared up kickflip bs lipslide down the rail in zone 1 for 2nd place honors.  Jake Braun had the jitters going into final only to shake the cobwebs off and turn it up to awesome.  He put down a fs kickflip over the rock gap in zone 3, a hardflip to flat in zone 2, and a solid bs bigspin fs boardslide down the rail in zone 1 to round out the top 3 in the division. Brad Hay Fully Locked Into This Bs Tailslide...And Threw A Bs Big Spin Out For Good Measure Jake Braun Floats A Nice Fs Kickflip Down The Rock Gap In Zone 3 Ryan LaRue Gathering A 360 Flip To Lipslide Down The Zone 1 Double Set Our BBQ Specialist, Emmet Klocker, Handing Out Some Signature WITP Style Hotdogs For A Long Line Of Hungry Competitors These 10 & Under Dudes Where Hyped To Get Their Turn As They Showed Off For The Crowd During Lunch The Open Division was now ready to put an exclamation point on the day and send it into overdrive.  There was no shortage of bangers throughout the entire division with the top spots up for grabs.  We saw a tail slapping bs bigger flip down the double set in zone 1, a massive ollie over the kicker to the flat in zone 2, and a bs kickflip over the rail in zone 3 and that was just a drop in the bucket.  Jonathan Reese was rousted out of his bed in the morning barely awake to jump in the car and get to the STC WITP.  It was a good thing that he made it because he absolutely destroyed finals.  He put down a kickflip fs boardslide shuv out down the rail in zone 1, fs feeble to fs 180 out on the rail in zone 3, and one of the biggest hardflips to flat in zone 2 right over the bolts capturing 1st place.  Corey Millett took himself and his mustache up to the top 3 by doing things like a shut down nollie heelflip bs lipslide on the rail in zone 1 to take 2nd place honors.  Tanner Van Vark continued his rein of top 3 honors with tricks like his high speed bs smith bs 180 out into the bank in zone 2 and his show stopping bs 180 fakie 5-0 to regular in zone 3 to end the day in 3rd place.
