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.

From The Beach To The Country, Nate Tyler in "To The Land"
Besides doing massive frontside airs with his long blond trademark locks, and working on helping produce his own video edits (like this one), Nate Tyler keeps relatively quiet at his home in Central California with an array of things to keep him busy. With a large piece of land occupied by farm animals, solar energy, and a flourishing nature presence, Nate lives off his land as much as he can. A sort of hippy-living surfer if you will. "To The Land" tracks Nate surfing near his home, near his life, near his land.   Also check out Nate Tyler's recent trip to Costa Rica w/ the rest of the Volcom Surf team!

Volcom X Anti-Hero Collection
Volcom team rider and Anti-Hero pro skater Grant Taylor calls this collaboration “ a no brainer.” His teammate on both brands, Chris Pfanner agrees: “ These two companies are well known for their love for the open road and venturing into the unknown, so it just makes sense that they combine their experience to put out solid gear that can withstand the miles we cover on our adventures.” And so the process began, to create a collection of co-branded Volcom X Anti-Hero apparel and accessories true to this ideal. With the plan in place and the Anti-Hero crew on board, Grant and Pfanner started feeding their input and ideas to the Volcom design team. You should know that Anti-Hero is a skateboard company founded in 1995 by legendary skaters Julien Stranger and John Cardiel. Since day one, Anti-Hero has existed to offer the anti-establishment alternative, waging an affront on skate industry norms in support of 100% raw shredding. From their team to their videos to their boards graphics and ads, Anti-Hero has remained an influential force in skateboarding for twenty years. And we believe that legacy lines up perfectly with our own. With a shared vision for the desired outcome of this collection, the directives from all involved were straightforward: it was imperative that the gear be built for long-lasting abuse with understated styling that does right by the Stone and the Eagle. Pfanner again, “ I just wanted to make stuff that we really wear, to stay true to what we really back and secondly to create stuff that we can use on the road, meaning that we can pack light and won't need to wash it too much!” To hit that target, we created a collection of tough, road-worthy gear: sturdy flannels and heavy-duty stretch twill pants with anti-microbial properties engineered into the weave at the fiber level, heavy-weight hooded sweatshirts and long sleeve t-shirts and a range of proper accessories “ an essential for every road adventure with the bros!” Check out the collection below and click the images for more info!

THREE STREETS TO BERLIN
From June 27 to June 29, skaters had three days to skate three Berlin spots and post a clip of their best trick at each spot on Instagram, tagging #Volcom3Streets2Berlin. Deadline for posts was Thursday 29 June, 4pm and the 8000€ winner was announced on that day at a Boat Party right next to the Bright tradeshow. Needless to say, the new concept surprised a bit the skaters involved who had to adapt their game, with no one-minute-run stress or jam session hassle, but also no one on their back to get the tricks done, to post before deadline, not get caught inside of the endless free beer parties, improvising themselves filmers for their buddies or struggling to find some Wifi or a power socket… In the end Eniz Fazliov took the win after an hectic day of skateboarding (rushing to the last spot before deadline), and the celebration party on the Volcom boat that followed is in the books. The spots saw plenty new tricks and some good friendly sessions went down, check out the top clips that were posted below, special mention to Andy Welther, Kris Vile, Karsten Kleppan, Jarne Verbruggen, Phil Zwijsen, Jelle Maatman, Daniel Spängs, Nils Ingemarsson, Bart Buikman and all the other skaters that entered ! Photographer Dennis Mac Grath was in town and wrote some lines about him documenting the three days « contest », enjoy his photos below : Flashbacks to the Life I’ve Lived Spending the Summer in Europe has always been a treat for American skaters. Whether it be traveling around to contests or in my case 13-14 years ago (yeah I’m old) it was living in Barcelona and sometimes not just for the Summer months.... This year I decided to come to Berlin, on a whim. I was moving out of my house in Los Angeles and a friend of mine offered me his flat here for a few months since LA life was starting to drag me down a bit. Once I arrived I connected with some people and was asked to document a free- form skate contest called Three Streets to Berlin. My career (if you can call it that) shooting skate photos lasted from 1995-2005 although I still work in and around the skateboarding world quite a bit....these days I am more focused on documentary projects, etc so it was a pleasure to get to document skaters once again for a few days out skating in the streets. I still skate a lot but don’t have my camera with me as much as I used to when out skating and I mostly skate with my old fart friends back home so I’m not around the kids much anymore. All I can say is things haven’t changed much other than the level of skating....skateboarders are the realest, rawest individuals I’ve ever known and I am so glad to have been apart of this culture for the past 30 years. All I can say is I met some cool ass talented kids this week. Skateboarders rule the world.... Thanks to Julien and Bemo at BLAM, Volcom, and especially Lucas Fiederling for bringing me out in the streets for the past 3 days. Please enjoy.... - Dennis McGrath Volkspark "the tit" session in full swing.... Patrick Rogalski Neu National Galerie "ledge to drop" Eniz Fazliov and Denny Pham In the mix...

"I Nearly Drowned From One Of The Waves In This Video" -Parker Coffin
Parker Coffin, straight outta Santa Barbara, CA, has been as busy as a presidential campaign manager these past couple months. He just released a stellar edit (watch above), has been actively training for his Championship Tour campaign, and is prepping for the US Open in Huntington Beach next week. In short, we've missed Parker, so we caught up with him recently to talk about this new edit, see where his head's at, and find out what the rest of 2016 has in store for him. How long you been riding for the Volcom family? I believe it's coming up on about nine years this January. What is Young Wise Tails? Youngwisetails.com is a website that my brother and I started to basically be a platform for what we liked and it slowly has transitioned from a blog into a production company. Now we make surf videos and use our website to promote them. When did you start filming for this new edit and where’d ya go? This particular video is actually left over footage from Volcom's surf movie Psychic Migrations. The footage in here is from Indonesia, Hawaii, and Mexico. Why did you decide to add the mirrored bonus section in this edit? I have always switched around my favorite surfers that were regularfoots to make them goofyfoots, so I could understand the way that they surfed in a way that was more relatable for me. I thought that it would be cool to release a part that was me as a regularfoot for the same reason, so some regularfoot kid could watch me surf and relate to it more. Any good stories from any of the trips? Well, I nearly drowned from one of the waves in this video. It was at a wave called Kandui in Indonesia and I jumped off and got sucked over the falls and landed on the reef head first and blacked out. It was, to this day, the scariest experience of my life. I'm very lucky to still be here and every time I watch that one wave I remember just how lucky I am. The wave: What’s upcoming for young Mr. Parker Coffin? I'm gonna put my head down and get on the WCT. I'm still trying to find my feet on the WQS as this is my first full year, but I want on that tour really badly and that's my only focus these days. It's a lot of work and a really big goal but that's what I want. What’s your favorite Volcom product? Where I live is a little on the colder side, so I love my Volcom jeans. The all black Vorta jeans are the shit!   *Check out our all-new Volcom Stone Made Jeans and Chinos, available now at volcom.com/vsm   Watch Parker in our new Welcome To Water Episode 3 edit: More Welcome To Water episodes Episode 1 Episode 2   Parker Coffin: @parkercoffin Volcom Surf: @volcomsurf Volcom: @volcom
