North America | 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.

Intro_1
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.

Intro_2
You can see how cold it truly was as you look at the riders frosted faces...brrrr.
15_Ben_1
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.
15_lip_3
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.
15_DAVID_2
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.
16_hotgarbage_1
Clement Pageu throws some “hot garbage” on this fs boardslide across the tower as he exits back to regular in zone 1.
16_Bernard_2
Bernard J-R showing his version of the “Montreal snowboarding uniform” fending off the frostbite by setting zone 2 ablaze.
16_gabriel_3
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.
16_Nath_2
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.
G_Samantha_3
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.
G_Cedrick_1
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.
lunch_group
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.
O_Axel_1
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.
O_GOGO_3
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.
O_disaster_2
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.
O_Dorval_1
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.
O_Gab_3
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.

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! Results: Juniors: Ask Filling Jan Bjørneboe Johannes Taklo Teodor Skogen Christian Locket Seniors: Fredrik Tangerud Gabriel Bjørsvik Øyvind Svendsen Ole Johan Edvartsen Vi Duc Troung Best trick: Gabriel Bjørsvik, BS 360 kickflip over the rail.
