Good times in Kotelnica, Białka Tatrzańska for the 2015 Polish stop of the Volcom Peanut Butter & Rail Jam competition! It was the best jibbing session this year, with all elements coming together for a successful event: beautiful weather, huge attendance of riders, nice set up and pumped up audience for hyping up riders!
Like last year, a strong group of snowboarders from Slovakia made the trip to Poland to shred the fun setup that the resort put together.

After registration we started the main course and jibbers rocked out the spot. Park Pirates crew prepared perfect spot, containing obstacles in 3 different skills level. Starting from simple thick rail for youngest, most popular transfer section to deadly hard king 20 meters long!!! Good vibes were supplied by Red Bull with music played all day and powered up with energy drinks. People were stoked when we fired up BBQ with free sausages and peanut butter sandwiches!

The competition started with the Girls division, great way to start as they were all in form and soon there were going for the transfer and landed the first tricks in there. The battle was fierce but in the end, Basia Sekudewicz landed at the first place, with style and solid tricks! Second place was given to Tinka Doppova from Slovakia. Same result as last year – congratulations Tinka!! Her skills are well known and she didn’t disappoint the audience!! Anna Lalik finished in third.

In 15 and under division the competition was also heavy! The youngest did some nice tricks on the basic rail. It was rad to see how rookies are talented and how good they might become in the future. It was tight battle but the best impression and scores went to Maksymilian Strąg, winning this category! Janek Jaromin took the second place like last year; he is the smallest one but very talented snowboarder! On the third step was Maciek Mróz.PBRJ Poland 2015 7

In the 16-21 division, the level went up and guys took it kind of serious, landing bangers all the time with cab to board, nosepresses, lipslides! It is always a very crowded group, with high performance! They shredded all obstacles but the most popular was the transfer line. Marcin Kilar finished at the top spot, landing all tricks with perfect style. Behind him were Kacper Bobowski and Bartłomiej Bratko , giving the audience also some nice action to watch.

At the end the Open division was the cherry on the pie, some madness occured! Over 40 riders gathered to destroy the setup. It was as always the most impressive and rad moment of the event.  The level was super high from the start, with the top Polish park&street shredders like Jakub Szkaradek, Wojtek Wojtyla, our Volcom team rider Maciek Długosz, Nikodem Franczak and a heavy crew of our neighbors from Slovakia!

All obstacles got destroyed, ripping down the long kink transfer section from all directions, rotations, long slides and solid riding from the beginning to the end… Judges decided that this year number one will be Kacper Gruszka for his undisputed smooth style, with bangers on each line, well deserved!

Euro Thrash Video: Volcom Surf's European Vacation
Our good friends at Wasted Talent put together a video of some of our riders: Noa Deane, Ryan Burch, Gony Zubizarreta, and more, thrashing their way through Portugal, Spain, and France during their summer '17 European vacation. From scoring one of the best days of surf they've ever seen at The Cave, to touring the local watering holes and taverns, to getting caught up in a weird presidental campaign in Paris, there was no shortage of amusement and European debauchery. It was a great trip that surely lived up to its name: Euro Thrash. The team riders, photographers, and crew, all became great friends by the end of the trip and ended on a promise to all return back soon. Euro Thrash 2.0?

As a top contender in the women’s halfpipe contest circuit, a Winter X Games gold medalist, and a two-time Olympian, Elena understands the amount of dedication and sacrifice required to stand on top of the podium. "Everything that I do and think, and base my life around, is around snowboarding, and when it's not going good, there's almost no escape." Listen to Elena as she explains her obsession of achieving the impossible, quitting not being an option, and the ups and downs of putting your passion before everything, in this latest episode of ThisFirst.

The Film Project BCN event recap
This last summer some of the best skateboarding photographers in Europe were given 3 film rolls to shoot. The idea was to use them as they wanted and ship them back for this The Film Project initiative supported by Volcom. The result it´s been really exciting as it usually happens with analog photography. Forty pictures were selected and put together in this first exhibition which took place in Studio Store venue, located in the Borne neighborhood in Barcelona last October the 4th. Lots of skateboarders and analog photography lovers showed up to see the works while they shared some fresh Pabst Blue Ribbon beers. If you missed it, stay tuned for some more dates around Euro cities to be confirmed and check #TheFilmProject2017 hashtag for peeping a bit. Some select pics will feature in the finest skate magazines in Europe. Thanks to Pabst Spain for the colds, Dogway crew and all the contributing photographers for making it happen. The photos will be exhibited in various locations throughout October and November, stay tuned for a show/party near you!

Leuven Skate Contest
The Leuven Family gathered once again for Leuven Skate Contest. Every year they have a new theme, this time they went all the way with JOHNNY’S & MARINAS. There wasn’t just a costume contest, beers and bbq. No, there was some skateboarding also. You’ve never seen a bowl and street contest this friendly and fun. Simon Deprez took the win with the Volcom best trick contest. Everybody killed it but one guy stood out, he protected his hometown and his title as biggest Johnny of them all, so Jonathan Thijs took the win. And there is no better Johnny prize than a Scooter. Once again, big thanks to the Leuven Family, Twits Skateshop and Volcom. See y’all next year. Credit Photo : Joselito Verschaeve
