Burgerama 3 The Growlers

Photos from Burgerama 3 in Orange County, CA

The obvious abundance of good vibes coupled with esoteric rituals, bizarre rites of Spring and so, so much good music this past weekend indicated that it was time for the latest and greatest Burgerama presentation from Burger Records. If you missed Burgerama 3 then you flat out missed the best and most vibrant musical offering to occur in Orange County if not all of Southern California, America and the World. A wonderful, large outdoor stage was added just for the occasion, with the crowd swelling to some 5,000 crazed music fans.

Volcom was posted up all weekend running a righteous raffle throughout both days and gifting our new favorite bands with the latest in Volcom styles. Thanks Burger Records and the Observatory for hosting the good times.

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.

210 COMPETITORS BOMBARD VOLCOM'S BLOWFISH SURF SERIES IN SUNNY SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA.
The best way to start off a great contest weekend is with a good ole fashioned pre-event signup party, which we got underway in usual Volcom TCT style. Friday afternoon the crew rolled into Hansens Surfboards in Encinitas and before we knew it the BBQ was fired up, the Groms were playing games of skate, and the good times were a plenty. After signing up half of the overall competitors in 2 hours everyone was amping and couldn’t wait for Saturday. Especially after taking a peep at the swell forecast. Yeah, so it was this good... The next morning bright and early we rolled in the Seaside Reef parking lot to see what we already expected, really fun looking, consistent surf. The day was looking up from the start. Right behind our convoy was a plethora of frothing Groms ready to help get the event site set up and get the heats in the water! First up was the Juniors division, and they made it known theirs was an act that was going to be tough to follow. There was such a great turnout we ran double beach heats from the first one almost all the way through the day. Seaside Reef always brings a multi-talented group of frothing Groms, Levi Slawson and firecracker hair are in the category! We pushed on through the day with tons of great waves throughout, and equally high scores to match. One thing can be said about the Blowfish Surf Series at Seaside Reef, it lacks no showing of great surfers chomping at the bit. Mother Nature blessed us with calm winds, bright sunshine, and consistently good surf all day just to help. The surf continued to pump all day, Griffen Foy... Little dude big turn! Moving into the end of the day spectators lined the seating area by the guard tower and packed the beaches to see what the remaining competitors had left in the tank. This was surely going to be an action packed finals all the way around! The Reef was firing and Palli’s was pumping as well, everyone was frothing. The rocky beach setup at Seaside always make for a great viewing arena. When it was all said and done Evan Gallen left with the grape juice shower for the crowd favorite Squids division, while Griffen Foy took top honors in the shredding Groms divison. Moving on Kirra Pinkerton snagged a win in the highly contested Girls division. Our final two divisions saw an always ripping Kei Kobayashi come over from Hawaii to snag the top honors in Juniors to seal up a seat at champs, and a very elated and ever deserving Kevin Schulz drenched in sparkling grape juice with a cool $500 to take home for the win in the Pro-Am division. Jonah Carter fins out and giving the right the ole "going over." Many thanks go out to everyone for coming down and making this years Volcom TCT Blowfish Surf Series, yet another great event. Thank you to our sponsors and also Hansens Surfboards for the continued support and we look forward to what’s next! Our good friends at Wienerschnitzel provided lunch for all 210 competitors and then some! When the surf is this good it's fun to see the groms using their power game. Jack Boyes on the backhand. Hair-reverse anyone?? So he was going really really fast. Carlos Carpenter hits the e-brake. The groms at Seaside are so rad we had to Watermelon Award them twice! Isiak Day and Cal Corn smiles for miles. How can you not love the Squids division, these kids are the future! Here are you Blowfish Surf Series Squids division winners, full froth. You mind surf, Griffen Foy will make it reality. If this spread doesn't make you want to reach the finals, nothing will. The end sections of a Seaside Reef wave provide a perfect canvas for any finishing maneuver. Kadin Panesi showing us the ropes! Kei Kobayashi, Griffen Foy, Kirra Pinkerton. Winner, Winner, Winner. Chicken for dinner. Kevin Schulz, sweet turn, sweet lighting, sweet victory. Let it rain sparkling cider gods, let it rain. Kevin Schulz reaping the rewards.

Peanut Butter And Rail Jam - Mont St. Bruno, QC 2015
Stop #2 of Volcom Stone’s Peanut Butter And Rail Jam fell into a deep freeze at Mont St. Bruno, Quebec for some smoking hot riding on Saturday January 17, 2015. Mont St. Bruno keeps the holiday spirit alive with lots of pine trees and red on the hill as the PBRJ spreads the cheer. With rolled up snow pants, skate helmet, open windbreaker and hooded sweatshirt the Montreal locals have a style all their own.  It’s hard for an outsider to fully comprehend the sheer frigid temperatures of this day and the fashion over function mind set. Canadian blood must be thick because most moms say they were underdressed for the occasion. Or maybe the fire of their maneuvers is how these shredders fend off the frostbite. Either way, these guys and gals were getting after it! Today’s Parks, headed by front man Guillaume Fournier, built a contest set up that was on point for everyone.  It featured a elevated lift tower that extended into a diving board exit, a flat box to flat rail combo middle section, and a pole jam to down flat down tube that added some flavor to this fan favorite feature.  Everyone was charging the obstacles with his or her own little twist and spin as practice ended and the riders meeting was called.  Competitors got the full breakdown and order of operations as their teeth chattered and eyelashes began to crystalize.  At this point all were ready to warm their blood as they hiked to the top to get ready to provide some red-hot jib action. You can see how cold it truly was as you look at the riders frosted faces...brrrr. Benjamin d’Hugues loads his shoulders as he gets ready to spin fs 270 off the end of the diving board feature in zone 1. Lenny Rawlinson had the long hair flowing in the breeze as he musters up a sw bs blunt slide 270 out on the kink tube in zone 3. David Tourngny turned heads the entire day. This 13-year-old kid manhandled any and all features in his path. David throws a combo with a boardslide on the box, 50-50 across the rail, and finishes with seamless fs 360 out. Not only did he capture the 15 & Under win, David also took home the $100 Rev’d Rider award with a look of surprise and excitement on his face. Clement Pageu throws some “hot garbage” on this fs boardslide across the tower as he exits back to regular in zone 1. Bernard J-R showing his version of the “Montreal snowboarding uniform” fending off the frostbite by setting zone 2 ablaze. Gabriel Gosselin had the judges seeing red as he landed a half cab 50-50 fs 270 lipslide to regular through the DFD tube in zone 1. The red-jacketed rider stuck out in the judge’s minds as they awarded him with a brand new Volcom Snowboard for his smooth moves. Nathaniel Vachon didn't think twice about the consequences of blasting this transfer from zone 1 to zone 2 as he gapped over to board slide. He was the only one that accomplished this feat the entire day. His no nonsense riding and style helped him grab ahold of 1st place in the 16-21 Division. 12-year-old Samantha Secours pole jams into the down-flat-down tube in zone 1. It was really impressive to see anyone go through this process and we were stoked to see her get after it with no hesitation. Cédrick Lessard is a true snowboarder's snowboarder. She rides with style and finesse as she pulls a beautiful nose blunted lipslide in zone 1. She also gapped the DFD with a lipslide that had the guys wiping the frost from their eyes. It’s no wonder why she found herself atop of the Girls division. It is rare to hear the term “get it while it’s hot” when you speak of a PB&J sandwich. Hungry competitors hustle to get their gooey sandwiches together before Mother Nature freezes their spreadable options. Axel Théoret adds his own personal style and flair to the lift tower in zone 1. This man is a character and his snowboarding is a true reflection of that. Alexandre Gauthier flexed out this half cab nose press on the zone 3 down-flat-down without a single tap of the tail. It was so clean that he earned himself Electric California’s “Gooyest Move Of The Day” with $50 and a pair of shades to boot. Hailing from New Hampshire, Jed Sky travels hundreds of miles to capture a spot in the 2015 PBRJ Championships by stomping tricks like this gap to front board claiming a 2nd place finish in the Open/Am Division. JP Dorval rips through the lift tower with a 50-50 bs 540 out in zone 1. Check out the retro shape of his snowboard because it looks awesome. Gabriel Jacques blasting a gap bs 270 lipslide in zone 3. The landing was pure ice by this time and big tricks like this one had serious consequences. He also landed sw fs board slide through the entire down-flat-down to show that he had both tech and gnar in his wheelhouse. Needless to say, Gabriel was the overall winner in the Open/Am Division. We would like to extend a great deal of gratitude to Melanie and the rest of Mont St. Bruno's staff for their diligence and attention to detail across the board.  Thank you to Guillaume Fournier and the entire park crew that left no stone unturned when building and maintaining the PBRJ contest site.  Thanks to our judges Charlo Beauregard, Julien Levesque, and PL Hamel for the scoring prowess. Thanks to Christina Campbell and JP Bélanger for helping with logistics throughout the day.  Lastly, our sponsors are awesome brands that support snowboarding at its core.  Check them out at the links below. -Rev’d Nutrition Bars -Electric -New Era -Kicker 15 & Under Division: 1st: David Tourigny 2nd: Benjamin d'Hugues 3rd: Lenny Rawlinson 4th: Pierre-Arthur Martel 5th: Frank Bélanger 16 - 21 Division: 1st:  Nathaniel Vachon 2nd: Bernard Joannette 3rd: Daniel Badgley 4th: Gabriel Gosselin 5th: Phil Mercier-Gilbert Girl's Division: 1st: Cédrick Lessard 2nd: Britt Horowitz 3rd: Samantha Secours 4th: Karine Bien-Aimé Men's Open/AM Division: 1st: Gabriel Jacques - $250 2nd: Jed Sky - $150 3rd: LP Dorval - $100 4th: Alexandre Gauthier 5th: Axel Théoret Volcom Snowboard - Gabriel Gosselin Rev’d Rider: $100 – David Tourigny Electric "Gooyest Move Of The Event" $50 and Electric Shades - Alexandre "GOGO" Gauthier Check Out The Peanut Butter And Rail Jam Facebook And Instagram For Additional Coverage Throughout The Entire 2015 Tour: Peanut Butter And Rail Jam Facebook Page Peanut Butter And Rail Jam Instagram
