Frank Knab is a New York state native, and Eastern Sierra immigrant. He calls Mammoth Lakes home, but you won't find him while your their. He's too busy exploring the Mammoth backcountry on his split board to bother with riding a chair lift. He's up at 5am and back at 9pm with a powder mustache, and a smile buried somewhere beneath it. Last season, Frank was out in the Jackson mountains filming with fellow Volcom riders Bryan Iguchi and Seth Huot for Volcom's #IP3. He also spent some time with Jeremy Jones and the Teton Gravity Research crew, camping somewhere deep in the hills of Tahoe. Frank is not your standard park lapping, rail riding Am. He is not a friend of a hike, and truly earns his turns.

Peanut Butter And Rail Jam Championships - Mammoth Mountain, CA 2014

Volcom Stone’s Peanut Butter and Rail Jam Global Championships converged upon Mammoth Mountain, CA April 19, 2014. Thank You To All The Competitors, Family Members, And Staff That Make The Peanut Butter And Rail Jam Tour Special! This year’s finale marked a decade of PBRJ Championships held in the Unbound Terrain Park giving a real indication that Volcom is certainly “True To This.”  Riders from around the globe were invited to compete for their piece of the $16,500 cash purse while testing their skills against the best up and coming rail riders in the game.  This truly international field of competitors traveled from many locations including Japan, Norway, France, Germany, Finland, Switzerland, Austria, Canada, and of course the United States.  It is amazing to hear about the voyages made to get to this point with many unbelievable tales to be told. From canceled flights to closed mountain pass roads; these competitors would not be held back as they geared up for the day’s action to begin. The 15 & Under Division was ready to run rampant on the custom contest site as spectators jostled for their viewing positions.  Hot out of the gate, Utah’s Joey Fava got things going with a solid 50-50 boardslide on the flat down rail in zone 1, a textbook bs boardslide pretzel out on the waterfall rail in zone 2, and finished things up with a cab 270 fs blunt 270 out to the flats off the diving board rail in zone 1 that sealed the deal for 1st place.  Minnesota’s Cam Kaiser had the juices flowing with tricks like his half cab tail press bs 360 out off the diving board rail in zone 1 for a rousting 2nd place.  Ontario Canada’s Quinn Dubios wrapped up his season with a solid performance that included a nose press tail grab late fs 180 in zone 1 and a 50-50 boardslide 270 out that helped him into the remaining 3rd place podium position. The entire division demonstrated that snowboarding has a rich group of youth ready to take on the bounds and so called limits for years to come. Fs Boardslide Down The Zone 2 Waterfall Rail Luke Zajac Linking Together the 50' Long Flat Down Rail In Zone 3 Utah's Joey Fava Inching Out To The Deep End Of The Diving Board With A Cab 270 On 270 Out In Zone 1 The 16 – 21 Division was now ready to get to work as they went to the top and strapped up.  There was a lot of camaraderie going on before the heat as they shook out the cobwebs and pumped each other up.  The excitement built quickly as Minnesota’s Eddie Fauth decided to attempt the first gap trick of the day on the massive flat down rail in zone 1 missing the apex of the rail by millimeters and stopping hearts.  Hot on Eddie’s heals; Jed Sky gapped out to fs boardslide and then gap fs 270 lip. From there Jed continued to push forward with tricks like a buttered in half cab to 50-50 bs 360 out on the diving board rail impressing the judges and helping him into 1st place.  Not to be outdone, Eddie Fauth came right back as he chipped away with his own gap fs boardslide in zone 3, half cab 50-50 fs 360 out in zone 1, and a gap fs 270 lip on the waterfall rail in zone 2 for 2nd place.  MN’s rein would not stop there as Benny Milam hammered out the goods with a gap bs 360 50-50 bs 180 out in zone 2 and a cab 270 fs blunt 630 out in zone 1 for the 3rd place spot. Minnesota Grown Garrett McKenzie Gaps 30+ Feet To Flat From A High Speed 50-50 In Zone 3 Minnesota's Benny Milam Squared Up With A Gap Bs Lipslide in Zone 2   British Columbia's Kody Yarosloski Grabs Indy While He Flexes For The Camera Minnesota's Eddie Fauth Goes For The Gusto With A Gap Bs 270 Lipslide In Zone 3 The Women’s Open Division was next to take center stage as the sun shined and the slush built up.  It was apparent that the ladies weren’t messing around as we witnessed a stomped 50-50 fs 360 off the diving board rail in zone 1 that got things started off heavy.  Norway’s Dina Treland came from across the pond spicing things up with some international inspired shred.  She had the judges turning their heads with tricks like her half cab 50-50 boardslide combo down the waterfall rail in zone 2 that aided her 1st place standing.  California’s Danika Duffy kept things tight as she pulled a half cab 50-50 bs 180 out in zone 1, 50-50 boardslide combo in zone 3, and a gap lipslide in zone 2 for the 2nd place nod.  Minnesota’s Kayli Hendricks held the Midwest in the top 3 with tricks like her sw lip 270 out in zone 1, bs lip to fakie in zone 3, and a fs boardslide to fakie in zone 2 to earn a 3rd place podium position. California's Melissa Evans Exiting The Zone 1 Diving Board In Style Kayli Hendricks Having It Her Way With A Fs Boardslide Down The Waterfall Rail In Zone 2 Dina Treland Came From Norway To Become The 2014 Global PBRJ Women's Champion PBJ, Pizza, and Smiles! Volcom's Johnny Lazz Woke Up To A Pizza Party Hangover. The Men’s Open Division was now ready to light the lamp and send this one into overtime. Each year these young men seem to out preform expectations as they charge the features with reckless abandon.  We saw a vast array of tricks including a straight on up and over nollie nose press on the waterfall rail in zone 2, half cab 50-50 bs 360 50-50 fs 180 out on the flat down rail in 3, and a bs 360 50-50 fs 360 off the zone 1 diving board to name a few.  Belgium’s Kevin Trammer had some serious style and a quiet killer approach. He was able to capture the title of PBRJ Global Champion with smooth bs lipslide combinations and a technical bs 180 sw 50-50 sw fs boardslide on the waterfall rail in zone 2.  Mammoth local Mike Gray knows the ins and outs of the Unbound terrain park with the home field advantage. He powered through the features to bring home 2nd place with tricks like his fs blunt 450 in zone 1 and a gap out cab 270 fs boardslide 270 out on the waterfall rail in zone 2.  Colorado’s John Myre had a hustle in his step demolishing the zones with tricks like his fs bluntslide 180 boardslide 270 out to the very end of the flat down rail in zone 3 obtaining 3rd place honors. All the competitors had their A game on, leaving the crowd cheering for more.

Peanut Butter And Rail Jam - Brighton Resort, UT 2014

Stop #11 of Volcom Stone’s Peanut Butter and Rail Jam polished off the North American tour at Brighton Resort Saturday, March 29th 2014. It has been a whirlwind of activity as the PBRJ tour traveled across North America for the last 4 months. It has all come down to this as Brighton locals battled with riders from around the country looking for the remaining $15k PBRJ Championship invites.  The contest arena was set in the Milly base area and featured a box-pole-jam-box feature in zone 1, a perfectly set down round bar in zone 2, and flat-down-flat ledge in zone 3.  All three features were fully trickable leaving it up to the rider to stand out among the crowd of their peers.  It was clear that we were in for a heavy day as practice pushed toward the final countdown. The Masses Assembled In The Milly Base Area The 15 & Under Division was ready to go after a quick rider’s meeting laying down the format for the day’s action.  This division held riders down to 9 years of age and delivered a stunning performance.  The field put down tricks like a half cab 50-50 pole jam bs 270 boardslide in zone 1, fs 270 on 270 off on the zone 2 rail, and a gap to down flat half cab 50-50 front flip out on the zone 3 ledge. Nolan Quinn was firing on all cylinders landing many tricks including the quintessential first try bs 360 50-50 fs 180 out on the down rail in zone 2 for 1st place overall and Electric’s “Gooeyest Move of the Event”.  Chandler Hunt was hot on Nolan’s heals staying in Utah just long enough to get 2nd place and his invite to championships before rushing off to The Launch in Seven Springs. Edward Enyart also put the pedal to the metal as he weaved himself through the grape vine of competitors to capture the 3rd place podium position. 9-Year-Old Noah Sherman Pushed His Limits To Receive $100 And The Rev'd Rider Award Chandler Hunt Spinning Fs 270 To Lipslide In Zone 2 Cyrus Morgensen Grabbing Tail Off The Pole Jam Box Feature In Zone 1 Nolan Quinn Going Switch Into The Zone 3 Ledge The 16 – 21 Division laid witness to some serious shredding from the young guns before converging onto the contest site.  This must have given them inspiration to step up their game as they drove fast and took chances.  Minnesota’s Eddie Fauth was on a mission to get his championship invite going ham from the very beginning.  He landed a sw lipslide pole jam fs 450 to boardslide in zone 1, bs 270 lipslide to fakie on the down rail in zone 2, and a gapped bs 360 to flat bs 180 out on the zone 3 box to name a few that got him into the 1st place spot.  Tristin Heiner melded his skills with style as he broke his board minutes into the finals, but still staked his claim for 2nd place in his division.  James Wilson mixed it up as well with tricks like a cab 270 fs boardslide down the rail in zone 2 helping him ride away in 3rd place. James Wilson Went Mute Stiffy Off Of the Pole Jam In Zone 1 Cab 270 Fs Boardslide To Regular From MN's Eddie Fauth Tristin Heiner Sends A 50-50 Through The Pole Jam To Gap Fs 360 Tuck Knee In Zone 1. Broken Board And All The Women’s Open Division was cold as ice as they laid down some dastardly deeds and throwing down the gauntlet. The ladies blasted through the zones landing a variety of maneuvers that included a hot out of the gate fs boardslide down the rail in zone 2 seconds into their heat, a half cab 50-50 pole jam bs 180 sw 50-50 half cab off in zone 1, and a gapped fs 180 sw 50-50 sw bs 180 out on the ledge in zone 3.  Veroniqui Hanssen showed that the proof is in the pudding greasing down the features with a heavy dose of shred to get the 1st place nod, Samantha Kolesky had the “Red Hair Don’t Care” flying as she acquired 2nd place, and Grace Mayernik “pressed” her luck and gathered the remaining 3rd place position. The Real Deal Tail Press In Zone 2 By Grace Mayernik Samantha Kolesky Leaning Into The Nose Across The Ledge In Zone 3 Veroniqi Hanssen With Some Smooth Style On This Fs Boardslide In Zone 2 Keeping It G with Free Food, Gatorade, and Broken Boards The Men’s Open Division was now set to finish off the season of PBRJ qualifying events. It was a scrap to the end as this game of chess went down to the wire piece by piece.  These guys took it to the features with style and speed as they landed a sw bs 270 lipslide 270 out on the down rail in zone 2, fs boardslide through the pole jam gap bs 270 to flat in zone 1, and a half cab 50-50 bs 360 tail grab out to name just a few of the fire crackers throughout.  Alex Lockwood really turned it on in the finals with a stand out half cab 50-50 gap bs 360 blasted to flat calling out checkmate collecting 1st place. Chadwick Flom absolutely destroyed zone 2 with a textbook sw bs lipslide pretzel out in zone 2 that demanded a 2nd place decision, and Brighton terrain park mastermind Treyson Allen knows the ins and outs of each feature acquiring 3rd place with tricks like his bs 180 tail press down the rail in zone 2.  All in all, everyone put it down and deserves a high five for their endeavors. Andrew Tassell Getting After It On The Long Down Rail In Zone 2 Treyson Allen Kept His Name Tag On So Everyone Knows He Works For Brighton Dillon Guenther With A Solid Bs Lipslide 270 Out In Zone 2 Alex Lockwood With A Half Cab 50-50 Through The Pole Jam Gap Late 180 To Flat In Zone 1 Chadwick Flom Stomped This Cab 270 Frontboard To Regular Thank you to Brighton Resort and Jared Winkler for helping with another successful PBRJ in Utah.  Cheers to Mouse and the entire terrain park staff for the rad set up and their help before, during, and after the event.  Thanks to Zander Blackman, Ryan Lanham, and Griffin Siebert for taking down the scores.  Thanks to Gage Thompson for shooting photos.
