contest_site

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.

15_Mason_3

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.”

15_Liam_1

9-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.

15_Koven_3

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.

16_Stormgaard_2

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?

16_Austin_3

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.

G_Kiranjit_2

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!

G_Amber_3

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.

Jesse Clipperton, Dan Milligan, Dave Wright, Tarik Elmas, and Ryan Caesar snap a quick group shot just before finals.

O_Poechman_2

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.

O_Bowler_3

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.

O_Hall_1

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.

O_Glibota_3

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.

O_coco_1

"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.

Osmo Thrombo - The Lo-fi B-movie of Hi-fi Shredding
The Real Journey of an Unreal Surf Flick, Osmo Thrombo. Words by Tom Carey Sometimes plans are meant to be changed. We set out to document a surf trip in Australia and ended up in Indonesia. Nate Leal (videographer) and I (still photographer) flew from California to Sydney ready to jump on another flight to Brisbane to meet up with surfers Ozzie Wright, Noa Deane, and Mitch Coleborn, along with Mikey Mallalieu (Aussie videographer). However, during the long trans Pacific flight, the forecast and weather turned grim to say the least. So, in the Sydney airport, we lined up last minute flights, accommodations, and transfers for all of us to one of Indo’s mysto, less frequented islands. The swell forecast was better than what Australia had in mind for us, and sometimes you just need to get surfers out of their comfort zone and on the road. Noa and beauties from another world. Mitch, Ozzie and Noa travel zonked at the ferry boarding station. You never know who you’re gonna meet while waiting for your boat to come in… ..And you never know who you’ll be invited to hang with once out to sea. The locals enjoyed our company and had some good laughs. Indo is a far trek for anyone coming from Cali, but once you tack on another flight, and a three-hour van ride, followed by a two-hour ferry ride, and a final thirty minutes by car, you’re talking about a hefty journey. So, you pray the waves are worth it. No shortage of post card views along the way. Village life. Finding beach shade was key to survival on our destination island. (Noa is seen here in the Mag Vibes Stoneys Boardshorts.) The big goon himself, Ozzie Wright, marks trails and takes his own shade with him everywhere he goes. Ozzie and the best way to shower off days of travel grime. Ozzie out of the shower and right back into being a slob. Noa indy… going big and tech in the natural world. Apparently, all the plane flights to get there wasn’t enough air time for Mitch. Post-surf refueling. All I can say is that these were no ordinary coconuts... ...Just ask Ozzie. The next few days were a back-and-forth mission between the left, and a right-hander situated in a massive bay with the most picturesque views framing the photos. The boys assaulted the right’s chunky sections. The maxed out conditions at the right made for some tricky situations, but when you found a good one, the ramps were massive! Mitch’s backhand is second to none, as seen here. After blowing out a fin box, Noa still managed to nail a few more airs there. But, the right just didn’t produce enough to make it into the film we were there to shoot. As fickle as it was, the left became our bread and butter. We were chipping away at our trip. We were working hard when struck by challenges such as our van bottoming out in a mean little ditch on a rutted, dirt road, and playing hard to compile an epic batch of clips. Ozzie and his favorite travel companion. The little ditch that stopped us in our tracks. Gathering rocks to wedge under the tires and try to lift the van high enough to drive out of the ditch. Noa spotting something unexpected at the left that would completely alter the rest of the trip. (Watch the flick, Osmo Thrombo, about this adventure to found out what.) Ozzie, Mitch and Noa at the Tropical Beach Alien Communication Centre. Ozzie tuned in. We were happy, but we still hadn’t scored that one all-time perfect day that you travel deep into the outer reaches for. It left us hungry for more. We woke up the last full day of the trip to a much bigger swell. The tide was in our favor and the winds were light enough for us to check out a fabled heavy tube that sits a boat ride away from the shore of a deep, cliff-lined bay. At low tide it’s ultra shallow. You need to knife your take-off directly into the barrel or you can plan on scrapping yourself off the reef. Sure enough, we rolled up to the shore and saw low-tide kegs freight training out in the distance of the bay. We rented an indo canoe powered by a five-horse-power-converted weed whacker outboard. We excitedly jumped in the boat for the ride to the line-up. At first, from this closer vantage point, it looked as if the tide was actually too low. Suddenly, a few crazy waves pulsed in that got the boys out there immediately. But, once in the water, we found ourselves settling for less. Although fun, nothing rolled in for a while as sick as what we previously saw. To make matters worse, a crazy rain squall moved in and unleashed on us. It was raining so hard that the boat was filling up with water. Then, after about 20 minutes of nonstop, torrential downpour, it was as if some higher power came down and said, “Hey, let me help you out here,” and the rain stopped like the flip of a switch. A light offshore wind kicked in, and the waves started pumping. As if a spell was cast, the conditions went from average to absolutely going off. It was unworldly. Ozzie’s wave-count doubled everyone else's on the trip. He’s all smiles here after getting barreled for 50 yards across the shallow reef. After the rain squall, the wave became a full-fledge photo studio. Mitch just inches away from my camera. The power of a fisheye lens. We substituted the sun for offshore winds. Ozzie approved. A few gems came in before the squall. Noa found the best one. Mitch mid-pump on a little screamer. We traded off long waves of multi-section pits for six hours straight that day. It was the all-time session we were hoping for. We watched the footage that night, pinching ourselves and sharing the stoke of each other’s waves. Celebratory madness ensued, joking “rite of passage” haircuts went down: Mitch got the first cut and rocked it the rest of the trip. The next morning we woke up to onshore slop. The ocean was done and so were we. It was time to go home. Journey complete. Hours of footage and tons of stories. What was next to do? Ryan Thomas to tweak all the footage into what would become OSMO THROMBO… The lo-fi, cult, surf action, adventure, dramatic, sci-fi, fantasy, bro-mantic, comedy, feel good, B-movie of outer limits, hi-fi shredding and interstellar tube time, that quickly unravels into the most bizarre experience of our lives… and ultimately a mission to rescue Mitch. Three of them was a handful. I couldn’t imagine keeping track of nine. Until next time!

Volcom Back to School
Going back to school is always a drag, after countless hours out in the sun with total freedom to do whatever you want. We figured we could do the transition from freedom to boredom easier for the kids and reached out to the guys at Oslo Skatepark. They were stoked to do something so we gathered a bunch of prizes, food & drinks and invited everyone to come and have fun. The local team boys, Mats Hatlem and Marcus Vik were the judges for the day. We did the contest in the contest in an untraditional jam format which is always fun. The kids totally destroyed the park and we got to see a lot of NBD`s. During the finals in both divisions the crowd was going wild and the park was torn to bits. After the finals we did a best trick contest, which was crazy. Gabriel Bjørsvik won with a BS 360 kickflip over the rail. They guys from Session came by to fire up the BBQ, free food for everyone! Thanks to everyone that came out, GoPro, Spitfire, Etnies, Independent, Session, Oslo Skatehall, Stian, Petter, Mats, Marcus, Amin, Brox, Oslo skateforening. See you next year!
