Peanut Butter And Rail Jam - Mountain Creek, NJ 2015
Stop #7 of Volcom Stone’s Peanut Butter and Rail Jam took center stage in the Garden State at Mountain Creek, NJ, Saturday February 21, 2015. The contest site was surrounded by competitors and PBRJ enthusiasts the entire day. The East Coast has been pounded with historic amounts of snow this season.  This snow has allowed the region’s rippers a chance to ride some features that others have only been able to say “what if.”  With the spirit of shred at an all time high, the Mountain Creek Park Crew tossed out the rulebooks and created a solid PBRJ site that kept riders on their toes.  The crew dropped in a flat down rail to drop rail in zone 1, a meticulously sculpted triangle cheese wedge, with creeper snow ledges to corrugated tube in zone 2, and got kinky with an elevated elbow tube in zone 3.  These solid features left it up to the rider to figure out what the judges would like as creativity and style proved to be king. Justin Kipilla spinning like a top with a bs 360 50-50 bs 360 out on the elevated elbow tube in zone 3 Joey Leon kept his heels up on this gap past the snow ledge to fs boardslide in zone 2. There were more than a few that felt the wrath of the corrugated tube hooking their edge and sending them to the snow. Connecticut's Will Healy came out to the Peanut Butter and Rail Jam for the first time to throw down in all 3 zones. Here he gets onto a fs boardslide early and finishes strong as he exits to fakie in zone 1. His overall style and control captured the win in the 15 & Under Division. Travis Henderson borrowed a groomer's rake to make this pole jam up the cheese wedge. After a few very entertaining slams into the wall he somehow linked it all together to be awarded $50 and a pair of Electric shades for the "Gooyest Move of the Event". Travis's energy was top notch as he captured 3rd place in the 16 - 21 Division. Jake Colman puts down a toe jammed 50-50 bs 270 to fakie in zone 2. His mixture of high speed gap tricks and technicality throughout the day earned him 2nd place in the 16 - 21 Division. Nick Nolan knows how to keep his snowboarding act tight. Here he spins a fs 360 out of a half cab 50-50 through the elbow tube in zone 3. He also landed a notable blunslide gap to drop rail sw 50-50 180 out on in zone 1. Needless to say, Nick slid away with 1st place in the 16 - 21 Division. Allison Freeswick is one tough cookie. She dislocated her shoulder trying to land this method gap 50-50 in zone 1 only to pop it back into place and stomp her trick down a few tries later. She definitely payed her dues to receive $100 and the Rev'd Rider award at Mountain Creek. Alexa Cerra has been competing in the PBRJs since she was 7 years old. The PBRJ veteran was the only girl that sent it to the top of the wedge in zone 2 with this stylish layback 50-50. Lauren Broomall sits conformably on her front foot as she switch boardslides through the elbow tube in zone 3. She rocked out numerous tricks in her heat to solidify 1st place in the Girls Division. Jake Fouriner was so excited and surprised by the amount of PB&J that his hair turned green. Josh Salvatore earns one of our favorite photos of the day with this noseblunt across the top edge of the cheese wedge transfer 50-50 as the snow blasts down. No need for goggles on this one, a baseball cap will do just fine. Chad Strother locked and loaded on this sw lipslide 270 out in zone 3 Minnesota's Chris Eck has been to 3 PBRJ stops this year and has ridden really well at all three. His passion and determination to capture a PBRJ Championships invite pays off as he earned 2nd place with tricks like this gap hw 270 bs lip in zone 1. Mountain Creek local wild man Kevin Kaczynski puts down a sw lipslide 270 out as he points out the camera man midway trough striking a pose before the ride away. Check out the video for verification. Jon Koch checks the flex on this massive gap to drop rail boardslide in zone 1. He and his bib overalls did some serious work throughout the day as he took home Open/AM Division 1st place and a proper round of applause from everyone at awards. We would like to thank Gina Perrelli from the Mountain Creek marketing department for her help in facilitating the PBRJ event. Thank you to Marc Tremain and the MC Park Crew for all their hard work on the conceptualizing and building of a creative contest site.  Thanks to Alex Huang, Chris Szczypala, and Steve Rosal for etching down scores throughout the day.  Thanks to Austin White and Val Jordan for supporting the crew and keeping the ship tight.  Lastly, a huge thank you to our tour sponsors for kicking in the extra stoke for the entire tour.

Peanut Butter And Rail Jam - Trollhaugen, WI 2015
Stop #6 of Volcom’s Peanut Butter and Rail Jam paid the troll toll at Trollhaugen, WI on Sunday February 15, 2015. The crew huddles up in the cold as they get ready to shred the first PBRJ at Trollhaugen, WI. Notice all the face masks and leather mittens yet some still choose the hooded sweatshirt. Kid tested, mother not approved. Most humans are not built for -10 degree weather for more than a few minutes, much less brave those temps throughout the day to perform at a ridiculously high level.  It is easily possible that the Midwest bloodlines have thick skin and magical powers as 190 trolls shut down all features in their path.  The Trollhaugen Park Crew put together a banging contest site that consisted of multiple transfer options from flat rail or wallride/creeper ledge to down rail in zone 1, the infamous Troll quad kink in zone 2, and more transfer options in zone 3 with a flat bar to wall ride feature.  Troll also houses more towropes then anywhere else that we have ever seen. It’s not unheard of that riders in the Midwest can rack up hundreds of rope laps on any given day. This translates into an incredible rate of progression and precision jibbery.  It just so happens that there was a ropetow inside the PBRJ contest venue that had riders whipping up the hill to maximize their attempts per heat.  This lead to some of the most mind-boggling tricks we have ever seen since the PBRJ’s inception 15 years ago. Brandon Kirkland positions himself with a 50-50 on the flat rail to bs 270 into the wallride in zone 3. He stood out in the very first heat of the 15 & Under prelims and ended in 2nd place after the finals. Nick Irwin was hunting for the top spot the entire way. He landed a fs blunt on the flat rail to transfer fs boardslide pretzel out in zone 1, a sw fs blunt 270 out on the wall in zone 3, and this high speed 50-50 gap fs 270 lipslide in zone 2 (pictured above) to win the 15 & Under Division. 16 - 21 Division riders make there way to the top via the convenience of a private PBRJ towrope. Garrett Makenzie flexed a tail press across the flat bar that Arnold Schwarzenegger would be proud before exiting into this fs wallride in zone 3. Eli Lamm had his name rapidly repeated as he was rattling off tricks left and right. Here he 50-50 transfers to fs boardslide 270 out in zone 1, he also landed a bluntslide 270 off the wall in zone 3, and put down a gap hw fs 270 sw bs lip on the quad kink in zone 2 tipping the scales in his favor for the 16-21 Division title. Birthday girl, Jessi Huege, gaps from the backside of the wall with a stylish fs 180 entry in zone 3. She even got the masses to sing happy birthday to her at awards after she took 3rd place. Kayli Hendricks continues to push her skills to the max each and every year. Here she settles into a solid fs bluntslide to fakie through the zone 2 quad kink. Nice work girl, keeping those boys on their toes! Kristin Jessen and Kayli Hendricks put on a show putting down tricks back to back. They both had very close scores but in the end Kristin squeaked out the win with tricks like this perfect noseslide pretzel out of the wall in zone 3. Cold temps make it hard to spread the magic of a fine PB&J sandwich. Good thing there were fire pits to thaw out the gooeyness. Don't get those mitts too close to the fire guys. Volcom's Andy Conrad found out the hard way that mittens can melt straight to your hands. Minnesota's Eddie Fauth sits perfectly on a fs bluntslide before he pretzels into the transition of zone 3. Sam Schiltgen "Nose" how to press as he fully leans this one to the end of the quad kink in zone 2. Cole Linzmeyer might be a wizard! He was riding an old Black Snow the entire day and put down some mind numbing tricks on that beast. He magically put down a switch nose press on the stub tail of his board through the quad kink in zone 2. Here he switch back lips the wall ride in zone 3. It was a no brainer to give him the $100 Rev'd Rider award for his sorcery. Kyle Kennedy did numerous transfers through zone 1 that had the spirited crowd on hand in disbelief. Just when you thought he would fall off the rail, he would push back on top to 360 or 270 out. We have never seen something quite like that before. Kyle finished his day off in 2nd place in the Open/AM Division. Mike Skiba may be the most jib technical snowboarder that we have ever come across that does not have a major sponsor. Everything he did was perfect and most of it was done switch, like this sw fs 360 50-50 180 out in zone 2. The judges all agreed that Mike's performance was more that worthy of 1st place in the Open/AM Division. We would like to give a well deserved thank you to Mr. David Sutton for all his hard work and dedication he provided to the PBRJ staff, competitors, and family members that came to support the scene. Thank you to Ben Klosterman and all the Trolls on the park crew for the well planned and perfectly executed/maintained contest site.  Thanks to Josh Johnson, T.J. Antisdel, and Jeffy Gabrick for freezing their extremities and taking down scores. Thank you to Emmet Klocker and Andy “Always Summertime” Conrad, Mike Pettit, and Mike Thienes for their help with everything in-between.  Also, check out our additional tour sponsors that hook up the kids with extra stoke at each and ever stop.

Peanut Butter And Rail Jam - Blue Mountain, ON Canada 2015
Stop #5 of Volcom Stone’s Peanut Butter And Rail Jam pointed its compass north of the boarder and landed at Blue Mountain, ON Canada on Saturday February 7, 2015 The contest site was littered with PBRJ enthusiasts for this 13th annual event! Canadians seem to have a total different way of looking at things, which lead to some of the most interesting action of the 2015 PBRJ tour thus far.  Multiple riders had custom shaped snowboards, one rider was laying it down on a swallowtail powder board and another rider showed up in a 3 piece suit along with his snowboard inside a briefcase.  Just when you think that you have seen everything, someone’s ready to throw a curve ball.  Mother nature pitched her own curve ball as a weather system rolled in to drop a high rate of snow throughout the day.  The non-goggle steez had riders squinting like a grandparents trying to read a sight chart.   Regardless of these testing conditions, competitors continued to put down heavy tricks like a sw bs 360 50-50 on the down square bar in zone 3, a plethora of spin in spin out maneuvers on the flat tube in zone 2, and got technical with tricks like a nose press fs 360 out on the elevated shark fin rail in zone 1.  It was a battle to the end to see who would walk away with the top spot in each division. Mason Corrie was determined to throw this sw bs 360 50-50 in zone 3. He made multiple attempts throughout his heat and managed to squeak a solid make in before the buzzer. This timely manuver was a highlight of the event and earned him Electric California’s $50 “Gooyest Move of the Event.” 11-Year-Old Liam Brearly was punishing the course on all fronts. Here he puts down a twisted boardslide pretzel out on the zone 1 shark fin rail. He stood out amongst the crowd for 2nd place in the 15 & Under Division. Sam Koven linking into a sw fs boardslide to fakie on the down square bar in zone 3. His overall ripping allowed the judges to give him the green light on a winning performance. Per Stormgaard sits comfortably on his back foot across the tube in zone 2. Look closely at his front foot and you will see the Canadian four-leaf clover eh? We are still not sure if Austin Johnson missed a trick all day long. Every time he entered an exited a zone he was solidly on his board. Here he front blunts 180 switch up to fakie in zone 3. His consistency and assortment of tricks landed him in the top spot for the 16 – 21 Division. Kiranjit Phagurha has one of the most difficult names to pronounce throughout the North American PBRJ tour. However, she makes it easy to get excited about snowboarding tricks like this lipslide in zone 2. She also stomped a fs boardslide after time for the crowd on hand. Everyone was hyped! Amber Moffatt flexed out her tail on the square tube in zone 3. The dudes where a little intimidated on how properly she held it to the end. The TPS Reports have been filed. Time to handle business on the free PB&J buffet! Jesse Clipperton, Dan Milligan, Dave Wright, Tarik Elmas, and Ryan Caesar snap a quick group shot just before finals. Ben Poechman added a touch of flair to everything that he did. He stood out with tricks like this properly executed fs bluntslide in zone 2 and a straight on raillie nose press in zone 1. He looked like he was having more fun than everyone and received the $100 Rev’d Rider Award and 5th place to boot. Geoffrey Bowler spots a hw fs 270 sw bs lipslide in zone 2. Strikes like this helped him turkey for 4th in the Open/Am Division… Yes, that was a bowling joke. Gordon Hall had one of the most technical tricks of the day with a sw nose press fs 360 out in zone 1. It was definitely one we will remember for a long time. Daniel Glibota knew that there was a chance of snow and brought his swallowtail powder board to plow through. He also showed us that he can still rip rails no matter what he has under his feet with tricks like this bs 360 50-50 in zone 3. We figured that he should have a new shred stick and awarded him a brand new Volcom snowboard to go with his 2nd place Open Division/AM placement. "I'm in love with the CoCo” Conway was on fire throughout the day with switch and regular combinations on all features. He was the only person to squarely bs 270 to fakie the tall flat rail in zone 1 as pictured above. It was a no brainer to award him with his 2nd consecutive Open/AM Division PBRJ victory at Blue Mountain Resort. We would like to thank Erika Langman and Ben Carleton from Blue Mountain Resort for all their hard work hosting us for the 13th year at Blue Mountain.  Thank you to Matt Konnings and the entire park crew for staying up through the late hours of the night to sculpt a fun and trickable PBRJ contest site.  Big thanks to our Co-MC Jesse Clipperton for his work on the mic. Thanks to our attentive judging panel of Dave Wright, Ryan Caesar, Dane Milligan, and Gary Munce for watching all the action.  Thanks to Tarik Elmas, Natalie Lozeau, and Ben Cousins for crossing the t’s and dotting the i’s throughout the event.  Thank you to our tour sponsors, listed below, for their dedication to the PBRJ and the youth of action sports. -Rev’d Nutrition Bars -Electric -New Era -Kicker Results: 15 & Under Division: 1st: Sam Koven 2nd: Liam Brearly 3rd: Dean Carreino 4th: Cameron Spalding 5th: William Buffey 16 - 21 Division: 1st: Austin Johnson 2nd: Per-Thomas Stormgaard 3rd: Kaleb Gray 4th: Brian Anderson 5th: Akeen Llewellyn Girls Division: 1st: Amber Moffatt 2nd: Jillian Clarke 3rd: Johanna Shenstone 4th: Kiranjit Phagurha 5th: Molly Bouchard Open/AM Division: 1st: Coulton Conway - $250 2nd: Daniel Glibota - $150 3rd: Gordon Hall - $100 4th: Geoffrey Bowler 5th: Ben Poechman Volcom Snowboard - Daniel Glibota Rev’d Rider: $100 – Ben Poechman Electric "Gooyest Move Of The Event" $50 and Electric Shades - Mason Corrie 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
