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 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!

Wojtek Wojtyła

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!

The Volcom Road Rager Tour, French West Coast
It has been long awaited the chance to come back and visit Bretagne and enjoy the beautiful landscapes, the delicious crepes and the tasty cider. Unfortunately, we cannot say that we found good waves … it was mostly small and on-shore and as everyone told us “You should have been here yesterday, it was pumping !” Bad timing ? Maybe … but the guys prefer to surf on-shore waves anyway ! Willy Charly Baptiste We took a big camping car, asked William Aliotti, Charly Quivront and Baptiste Gaud to jump in, and drove all the way from Hossegor to Brest, our first stop of the tour with Side Shore Surfshop. We could enjoy some great surf movies at the Brest Surf Film Festival before heading south to visit Absolute Surfshop and surf in Crozon with the local kids that were ripping on their home spot ! No time to rest, the next day we had to be in Guidel to visit Action Line Surfshop, surf & skate on schedule ! The micro ramp is right in front of the shop and the kids were super keen so we decided to throw a Best trick Session ! Baptiste had a few tricks but the local groms took it home. We were very impress by their levels of skateboarding, hat down Guidel ! Next stop was Keepcool in Carnac where we had the best session of the trip at La Cote Sauvage, Quiberon. A super funny left where Charly and Baptiste had a blast on a sunny day. BTW, it was pissing rain in the South West of France ! Everyone was very excited about the next one in the Volcom Store Nantes, a student city where we heard the night life can be pretty epic. The surf team did some DIY Road Rager tshirts for the customers and we played a big darts tournament before visiting the museums and libraries of the city ... yeah maybe we only visited pubs and clubs … On a big hangover, we drove to Ile de Ré and had a beautiful evening at Reves D’Iles Surfshop where we skated in front of the shop and gave a skate lesson to the local groms. The day after we drove to Charly’s home town, Royan, to visit his dad’s shop Maracuja. A big crowd was waiting for Charly, the first surfer of the town who succeed in becoming a pro surfer. You can see that the kids are inspired by his achievements, that was nice and we had a blast, thanks Yannick ! To finish with fireworks we had plan a big one in Biscarosse at La Vigie, on the same days that the Junior Qualifying Series were running. Art expo by Roch Tortuga, live music by Cheaap, surf test by Firewire Surfboards, all these on tape for free. A big day to celebrate a great shop while the JQS was called OFF for a lay day. This tour was great, we shared some good times with our best surfshops, discovered a beautiful coast line and experimented the camper life. We will be back next year, one day in advance, so we should get more waves All the photos have been shot by Kevin Berthelot

Save Saint Martin #sxmstrong
6 months have passed since hurricane Irma destroyed the North islands in the Caribbean, the damages on my native island of Saint Martin is so heavy that it's only slowly step by step that we keep moving forward. But it is with extraordinary courage and hard work that the locals lead the fight to get back our little paradise with the hope and faith to rebuild everything to make it even a better place. Being far away and feeling helpless to not be able to help my island knowing what they are going through I decided to create an association to raise money to help rebuild the surf clubs of Saint Martin where I begin surfing, because it seems to me essential for the balance of young generations and the waves’ passionate to continue surfing and smiling. A huge thank you to Monster Energy for supporting this cause and helping the recovery of the surf clubs of Saint Martin with new surfboards and  we decide to do this little video when I came back home for the first time after the hurricane in honor of the inspiring fearless Saint Martin’s citizen who stayed and stand up strong through all the hard time. And shown despite the damage the unconditional beauty of the island.

SKATEBOARDING COPENHAGEN W/ CHRIS PFANNER, COLLIN PROVOST, MILTON MARTINEZ, ALEC MAJERUS
WE HIT SOME OF THE BEST SKATE SPOTS IN COPENHAGEN AND ALEC MAJERUS NAILS THE ELUSIVE (AND MASSIVE) 14-STAIR RAIL We recently found ourselves in Copenhagen, Denmark for the annual CPH Pro skate contest and met up with veteran Volcom team rider and local hero Rune Glifberg to show us around the city. After hopping on our bikes with the crew (Chris Pfanner, Collin Provost, Milton Martinez, Alec Majerus) and getting a first-hand look at the Danish capital, we decided it was time to hit some of Copenhagen’s best skateparks. SKATE SCENE IN COPENHAGEN Copenhagen really has done an amazing job making the city welcoming to skaters, or maybe it’s just the people. All of the locals seem to have the mindset of “live and let live.” Besides letting skaters from around the world takeover their city for a week for the CPH Pro, Copenhagen has built some of the world’s most amazing skateparks and even a lot of the infrastructure in the city seems like it was made to skate. The last couple days of the trip were plagued with off and on rain, and since we had an open agenda and already did the obligatory Copenhagen canal tour, everyone just wanted to skate. The contest transforms the city to a great big skateboard festival with skateboarders dominating the city picture. Everywhere you look there are skateboarders from all over the world riding their boards and bikes around town. All in all, this festive week is the perfect backdrop to go in depth with the Volcom Skate Team. -Rune Glifberg MAKESHIFT CITY SPOT In a brief period of dryness, we had to take advantage, so we hit the streets on our bikes to skate all of the spots we’ve been seeing during the week. We pulled up to a spot that Rune had saw, but we weren’t even sure if it was skatable as he had just seen it in passing. After arrival, we took a quick glance and it looked highly questionable: a very long mellow bank that leads up to some high metal poles sticking out from the ground. To most of the crew, it didn’t look that skateable, but to Pfanner, it was his specialty. After a quick roll up, he ollied it first try! A few more tries later he was rolling away from a backside 180 as the rain slowly started again and forced us to find cover elsewhere. DIY BRIDGE SPOT Under a bridge by the highways entering the city there is a DIY skatepark that the locals have constantly been building. Only a few months back, Collin was out here on the Volcom X Harley motorcycle trip and he was astonished at how much they added to it since then. The boys quickly fired it up and Collin and Milton were going off, flying around everywhere under the bridge while the locals were chatting it up with the rest of the crew and watching all the action. FLAT GROUND AND THE DISH SPOT Just out from under the bridge was a park with a playground, some ledges, and a lot of the other dudes just chilling and skating flatground. Sometime during the sesh, a local skater showed up with a little Vespa scooter and Pfanner and Collin wondered if they could ollie over it. The guy was skeptical, but let them try. Almost instantly, the guys were nailing tricks over and over and the dude was happily surprised. After the DIY spot, we headed back into the city to hit more spots. During the week in Copenhagen cruising around the city, we spotted this interesting dish spot at a public park not too far from our hotel, so we decided to check it out. Collin had a field day as he loves skating small and odd transitions. The guy can kickflip off the side of a curb! Everyone was having an awesome time just kicking it in the park, watching Collin and people watching. It wasn’t too long until the rain came back and we were forced to retreat to the hotel. THE HOSPITAL On the very last day we decided to try and hit a spot before we all had to catch our flights back home. Alec had seen this rail in a skate video that he knew was in Copenhagen, but he didn’t quite know where it was. After asking some local skaters, we got a pin to the local hospital, so we decided to go and try to skate it. Turns out, the hospital was a huge complex with multiple buildings and we still weren’t sure where the rail was. Thanks to Google satellite images, we located the massive 14 stair rail. Skaters call this rail a “shotgun rail” because it has two parallel rails about seven inches apart from each other, resembling a shotgun barrel. Alec said he always wanted to grind one with each truck on a different rail, and after a few tries, mission accomplished! Ending the trip at a high point and checking one off the bucket list was not a very bad way to end a trip to the happiest place on earth. Thank you, Copenhagen!   "I WENT TO COPENHAGEN THREE YEARS AGO FOR THE FIRST TIME AND EVER SINCE THEN IT'S BEEN ONE OF MY FAVORITE PLACES TO VISIT." -ALEC

HITCH A RIDE WITH OUR SKATE TEAM AS THEY TAKE A CANAL TOUR THROUGH COPENHAGEN'S BEAUTIFUL AND ICONIC WATERWAYS
HITCH A RIDE WITH OUR SKATE TEAM AS THEY TAKE A CANAL TOUR THROUGH COPENHAGEN'S BEAUTIFUL AND ICONIC WATERWAYS After the CPH Open contest was over, which was the reason we ventured to Copenhagen, we arranged a boat ride with our friend Rasmaus (I think that's his name?!) to let the crew relax and get a different perspective of Rune Glifberg’s hometown of Copenhagen. Rune put it best when he said, "The appearance of the city is a lot different from a boat ride. There's a quietness in the canals that doesn’t exist on the streets." The crew (Louie Lopez, Arto Saari, Chris Pfanner, Rune) hopped on their bikes and rode down to the canal where the boat was docked. We had a case of beer, some decent weather, good company, and were off on a canal tour of Copenhagen – it was going to be a good afternoon. COPENHAGEN CANALS Rune was right, there was a quietness out on the canals that you didn’t get in the streets and it was extremely refreshing. Louie Lopez has been to Copenhagen a few times, but never had experienced a full boat tour around the city, and he was stoked. Once everyone got their sea legs, we were off! Rune instantly started to point out all of the interesting things you could see from sea level: historic buildings, different neighborhoods, and some of the oldest parts of the city. Arto and Pfanner had a hard time putting their cameras down. There was just so much to see. RECOMMENDED CANAL TOURS IN COPENHAGEN: Canal Tours Copenhagen - 4.5 stars The Grand Tour of Copenhagen - 4.1 stars Kanalrundfarten - 4.4 stars Nettobadene - 4.3 stars This summer I wanted to show the team all the canals and crazy scenery you can see from the water. The appearance of the city is a lot different from a boat ride. There is a quietness in the canals that doesn’t exist on the streets, so it’s a nice escape from all the madness of the CPH Open contest. The contest is legendary by now, and the energy around the whole city is really mind-blowing when you live here. -Rune Glifberg SCENERY ON THE COPENHAGEN CANALS Not too far into our boat ride we got stopped by the police, yes, the police boat. They were only checking to make sure that the boat had enough life jackets for everyone and once they recognized Rune, they let us continue on our journey. You can’t give local Danish legend Rune Glifberg any trouble! All along our ride there was something to see. Huge 19th century tall ships, some sunken ships, and a lot of curious tourists on the shore. One of the most interesting sights of all were these floating shantytowns just outside of Christiania. Residents had built their own homes out of other people’s trash, made it float, and now lived on the water. It really tripped out Louie and Alec. They said it was probably the craziest thing they’ve seen in Copenhagen. Nothing like a graffiti-ridden trailer floating on the water!  "COPENHAGEN IS KIND OF A WONDERLAND FOR EVERYONE THAT APPRECIATES A LITTLE BIT OF FREEDOM AND ENJOYS THE 'LIVE AND LET LIVE' MENTALITY." -PFANNER   Heading back to dock the boat, everyone was pretty quiet. They were taking in the beautiful scenes around them and were enjoying the last fleeting moments together cruising through the canals of Copenhagen. Just in time, too, as the skies started to darken towards the end of our route, we docked our boat in a hurry right before it started to rain. Luckily, it was just a passing shower and we were all able to hop back on our bikes and make it back to the hotel just as planned.

RIDING BIKES THROUGH COPENHAGEN W/ ALEC MAJERUS, LOUIE LOPEZ, COLLIN PROVOST, RUNE GLIFBERG
THE SKATE TEAM TRADES SKATEBOARDS FOR BIKES TO TOUR THROUGH COPENHAGEN, DENMARK WITH A STOP AT THE HIPPIE FREETOWN OF CHRISTIANIA The Volcom Skate Team recently traveled to Copenhagen, Denmark for the CPH Pro and found some spare time after the contest, so they decided to hang out with local legend and longtime Volcom team rider Rune Glifberg for a couple days to get the true Copenhagen experience on two wheels before getting an authentic Copenhagen canal tour. RIDING BIKES IN COPENHAGEN There really is something magical about Copenhagen, Denmark. Chris Pfanner, Arto Saari, Louie Lopez and Alec Majerus all mentioned, at one point or another, that the city and people of Copenhagen really have it figured out. Not only is Copenhagen one of the cleanest cities in the world, but it is also one of the healthiest. One of the main reasons is that the infrastructure is designed to promote a pedestrian and cycling culture rather than driving. Normally on skate trips, the crew packs into a van and drives to a spot and skates for hours. In Copenhagen, you travel by bike like a pack of wolves. As Alec pointed out, "Biking around from spot to spot is fun and keeps your legs warm." A perfect activity for skateboarders.   WHERE TO RENT BIKES IN COPENHAGEN In Copenhagen, the majority of people ride a bike, and if you want to embrace the city as the locals do, you'll want to rent a bike from one of the many establishments located throughout the city. Whether it's a touchscreen-enabled, navigation-friendly bike from Bycyklen, a simple city bike you can access on the street 24/7 from Donkey Republic, or a secondhand bike advocating a philanthropic cause from Baisikeli, there is no shortage of choices. RECOMMENDED BIKE RENTALS IN COPENHAGEN: Donkey Republic 24/7 Bike Rental - 5 stars Copenhagen Bike Rental - 4.8 stars Copenhagen Bicycle ApS - 4.2 stars Baisikeli - 4 stars beCopenhagen Sightseeing & Bikes - 4.9 stars Bike Rental Copenhagen - 4.6 stars Summertime in Copenhagen makes it one of the best cities in the world. Short lived and with a seasonal bloom. Our summers work as a breath of fresh air from our long winters that seem to last forever sometimes. Sharing our summers with the skateboard world is such a fun thing. Riding bikes around with the Volcom team and just enjoying the warm weather and the energized summer pulse of the city. -Rune Glifberg HIPPIE FREETOWN OF CHRISTIANIA Our hotel was located right next to the train station where there were bikes everywhere, but we were lucky enough to be able to rent bikes from the hotel – all 12 of us! On the first day we were waiting for everyone to get in to town, but we already got our bikes and Collin Provost was ready to explore. First stop?! Christiania! Like travelling back in time, Christiania is like old town Copenhagen which operates on its own rules. A self-governing gypsy village located somewhat on the outskirts of town. It was only a couple miles away which was perfect for a nice little bike ride, and with all of our friends and other skaters coming to town for the contest, it served as the unofficial meeting place all week. Needless to say, everyone on the trip knew the route to Christiania by heart before the trip was over. Bike ownership is pretty loose in Copenhagen and Collin got his bike stolen within the first couple days. No worries though, he just took another bike that seemed unwanted (and unlocked) and really made it his own for the rest of his time in Copenhagen, putting on stickers and tagging it. THE CITY OF COPENHAGEN One of the highlights of riding bikes in Copenhagen with such a big squad is that you can stop and look at whatever interests you along the way without having to find a place to park your car, pile out, and pile back in. One of our European riders Victor “Doobie” Pellagrin was also with us and he doesn’t know how to not have a good time! Romping around on bikes was second nature to him. He mentioned that he used to race motocross as a kid and that his father was a world-renowned racer as well. It all made sense when he was popping wheelies for 50 feet down the road and taking the poor hotel bikes off-roading. The architecture is really something to admire and everywhere we looked we saw some cool building nestled between the busy cobblestone streets. The different building colors, old school architect, and many towers and spires which populate the city give Copenhagen a feel like no other.   "BIKING AROUND THE CITY IS EPIC. AMAZING ARCHITECTURE AND VIEWS CONSTANTLY AND IT'S FASTER THAN DRIVING AROUND IN A CAR. YOU CAN PULL UP TO A SPOT AND BE WARMED UP AND READY TO GO!" -LOUIE
