EVENT: Volcom to Host Youth-Focused Snowboarding Contest at Boreal Mountain, Soda Springs, CA

Over the course of 2015 Volcom’s Peanut Butter And Rail Jam (PBRJ) contest series will travel North America to find the very best in amateur snowboarding talent.  The 15 year strong series will qualify the top 5 competitors in each of its four divisions to compete in the $15,000 PBRJ Global Championships at Mammoth Mountain on April 18, 2015. For their efforts, these competitors will ride for tons of prizes, cash, invites to the global event, and the prestige of top honors against their peers!  This event encourages community involvement while promoting the incredible talent today’s youth possesses.  During the PBRJ event, competitors are judged on the tricks they land, not on their bails, on three separate rail/box features.  There are 4 divisions: 15 & Under, 16 - 21, Girls, and Open/AM that are sure to keep everyone on the edge of their seats from beginning to end. Free food, free drinks, and giveaways will be provided for competitors and spectators alike. 



The Peanut Butter And Rail Jam is one of three contest series that make up Volcom's venerable ‘Let the Kids Ride Free’ (LTKRF) grassroots movement. Volcom’s LTKRF regional and global events are designed to enable the youth to gain contest experience, have a good time, win free prizes/cash, and showcase their talents at a local, national, and worldwide level.
