RESULTS | Stop #8 of Volcom PBRJ European Tour 2014 | Les 2 Alpes, France

Winter isn’t over! It made a crazy come back last weekend after a couple weeks of bluebird skies in the Alps, not easing things for the 2 Alpes shaper crew to build the Peanut Butter & Rail Jam setup for the french stop. The storm kicked in on the Saturday, and with no visibility at the snowpark, decision has been made to build everything at the bottom of the slopes for the next day event.

Besides the bad weather the public cheered for the bangers

On the Sunday morning, the resort woke up with 30cm of fresh snow, and even if they couldn’t use the crazy features they have at the top, the crew did a good job with a basic PBRJ setup fun to ride for everyone, consisting on a down rail, a double kink and a gap to box.

2 Alpes shapers put together a fun last minute alternative setup at the bottom of the slopes while it was dumping at the snowpark with no visibility

The storm was hitting us full force during the event but the sun would eventually kick in for some brief moments, but it didn’t affect the motivation of all riders that made the trip to take part of this fun day.

Joshua Pires drove all the way from the Netherlands to claim the Mammoth trip and the first place

Different crew from Vars, Isola, Chartreuse valley, Poland, Estonia, Italy made it to Les 2 Alpes and even a team from Holland drove all the way from Amsterdam, getting stucked in some mountain pass due to a mean GPS (this must have happen to everyone at least once).

Anne- Sophie killing it with style with a bs 180 the wrong way to switch 50 on the down rail

Anne Sophie Lechon killed it, won the Girls division and was on the line to get the trip to Mammoth for the PBRJ Championships but Joshua Pires made such an impression that the judges had to give him the ticket.

local shaper Sam Hadjadj took the second place in the Open division, that he celebrate with refreshments in the evening

It was Boris birthday (owner of the infamous Avalanche Nightclub) that day and his sons rode super good, Arthur Ney winning the 16-21 division while Oscar taking 6th in the 15 and under.
Young Italian Ian Matteoli is really small, can do gap fs boardslides, rides a board as long as a skate deck, he took 2nd in the 15 and under.

David Graham is a PBRJ France regular and is from the UK, so roastbeef is the grab of choice

Everyone went home with a big smile and some prizes thanks to our partners Union Bindings and Nitro Snowboards and the day ended at Smithys for Volcom newest film “True To This” première and loads of refreshments, needless to say that after that the Avalanche was the place to be, making the Monday a perfect hangover day to ride some fresh snow while the sun was back.

Volcom Welcomes Hailey Langland to Global Snow Team
Hailey Langland has been making a name for herself since she started snowboarding at age five. She exists in changing time zones, her passport stamped with groomer laps, take-offs and landings. She's got a front three that floats for days and radiates a style that's beyond her years. She grew up paddling into waves and pushing down streets in beachside San Clemente, CA. She first made turns at Bear Mountain and now calls Mammoth’s Main Park home, both proving grounds for sovereign snowboarders. She's fluid and explosive. She has a method that turns heads. It's the kind of kick-out that can't be learned. It's built-in from birth, harkening the past that's built for the future. We can't be more excited to welcome Hailey to the Volcom Family. She brings an impressive past, a promising future, and an unmatched personality which radiates passion and perseverance. While she joins us now, she has always been destined to the Stone. It was only a matter of time for the stars to align, and that time is now. Hailey Langland. Photo: Mike Pham // @phamuel "I'm psyched to be joining the Volcom Family! It's a dream come true to be part of a family that's much bigger than just snowboarding. I can't wait to see where this journey takes me." Hailey’s collection of heavy medals is already plush, though she’s truly just getting started. She landed a first-ever cab double ten in the 2017 X Games and earned her first Aspen gold. See? Just getting started. She’s logged time on podiums around the world. Slopestyle? Check. Big Air? Check. Three years in a row, she’s won the Drink Water Rat Race—a banked slalom where just getting to the bottom is a victory. And Hailey’s been the fastest. Three times. She’s the future of women’s slopestyle, yet her ease and authority with which she puts down tricks stretches far beyond contest boundaries. She’s the future of women’s snowboarding. Scratch that. She’s the future of snowboarding. Hailey wearing the Taylor Jacket (available in 3 colorways). Photo: Vernon Deck // @vernondeck Hailey's energy and style are pure Volcom. I’m super hyped on what she brings to the program. She's got full approval from the team. It's on!!!" -Remy Stratton, SVP Global Skate & Snow Hailey is serious about style and truly loves to ride. It's visible in every turn she makes, every slash, and every air she attempts. It's not fabricated. It's natural. Established at a very young age. At only seventeen, she's both a beacon to snowboarding's roots and a flare to the future, lighting up what's possible when talent, grit, and creativity are fused together. She says, "I cannot stress it enough how much style matters. We're all becoming robots out there, it's driving me freakin' nuts." Hailey on a recent trip in Saas'Fee, a resort village in the Swiss Alps. She has been True To This since she first stood sideways, but now, with the nourishment of the Stone, she can further feed her freedom of expression, and we are so stoked to welcome her to the family.

Skate and fashion: introducing Leila Afghan's photoshoot in London with skatebaorder @queeen_eevee
Leila once again captures the Volcom vibe in the streets of one of the most influencial capitals, London. @queeen_eve highlights some of our winter jackets and iconic Ozzie Wright's printed t shirts in her own style Check out her interview: Your favourite spot to skate? SouthBank - There's always something different going on Where was the first place you skated? Mile End Skate park. I remember passing the skate park and bare wanted to skate so my dad got me one of them Argos decks and I went with him and taught myself. Where is the last place you skated? Bay 66. But I didnt really skate it because on the way I tried bombing some fat steep hill and ate the most shit, that's the same day  broke my leg. How many bones have you broken? I broke like 3 bones in my leg but I cant remember which ones. Tell us about your injury... I dont remember how I broke them because I was drunk. I ended up going to a friends house and sleeping it off but in the morning it was soooo swollen. I couldnt move it so was time for hospital. Best thing about skating... You can have fun without having to pay for anything Worst thing about skating... There's nothing really bad about skating except when guards try and stop you from skating a spot and when it rains.

LONDON PHOTOGRAPHER LEILA AFGHAN IN NYC WITH SKATE GIRLS BRIANA AND YASMEEN
We were fortunate enough to sit with the 3 coolest chicks we know and ask them about everything skate. If you don’t know them already, you will. London based photographer (@leilaafghan), New York skater and model Briana King (@brianaking_) and Brooklyn babe Yasmeen Wilkerson (@yaz.so.mean) strutted their stuff in front of the camera and gave us some insight into their world. Leila, what's your favorite type of photography style and atmosphere to shoot? LEILA: I like weird and surreal - I shoot digital and film, but prefer the dreamy effect with film. When did you start taking skate pics and what took you there? LEILA: I started in fashion styling and photography, but am now progressing and combining documentary style, hence, taking pictures of me and my friends. Where is your favorite spot to shoot skate? LEILA: New York. Favorite spot to skate? YASMEEN: My favorite spot to skate is something new I've been fucking with called Delancey spot or BOCA LES spot. Its a walkway near the Willy B Bridge in Manhattan with a cement block, benches, curbs and other diy stuff. BRIANA: Coleman skate park. Where is the first place you skated? YASMEEN: The first place I skated was an empty parking lot by my house. I was too intimidated to skate in the open as I do now, and I barely knew how to push so I would take my board out there and try to ollie and get comfortable. BRIANA: Out front of the apartment. Where was the last place you skated? YASMEEN: LES skate park is the last place I skated. BRIANA: Blue Park Brooklyn. How many bones have you broken? BRIANA: 1 ankle. I attempted to ollie over 4 decks in front of a four stair, rolled my ankle, broke it, and couldn't trick or treat that night with my newly broken ankle. YASMEEN: My wrist (Smith fracture). Best thing about skating? YASMEEN: Best thing about skating is everything about it. The little lessons it gives you in humility, confidence, and persistence. Skateboarding taught me that strength isn't always physical. BRIANA: The homies! If I didn't skateboard I would be a lonely bub in NYC. And the worst thing about skating? BRIANA: There is no worst thing. YASMEEN: The fuck boys. ALL PHOTOS BY LEILA AFGHAN
