Volcom Peanut Butter and Rail Jam (PBRJ) contest took place last Sunday 10th March 2013 at snowpark Paprsek in Jeseniky Mountains.
The bad weather didn’t affect the snowboarders who showed up more motivated than ever for the eighth annual contest. The foggy conditions luckily cleared up for the finals. The snowpark, which was perfectly prepared by Paprsek local shapers is one of the best in the Morava region. Our big thanks also go to Ski Areal Paprsek for allowing the use of their snowpark!
The contest was run on two platforms with jibbing obstacles featuring kinked box, kinked rail, speed rail, a mega pipe and a straight box.
89 riders from 3 countries (CZE, SVK, POL) signed up in the four categories of the contest.
15 and under division qualifiers started shortly after mid-day and was dominated by Lukas Poboril who held on to the top spot and won the finals too. Second place went to the talented Daniel Kaspar and Adam Paulicek from Vrchlabi took the third.
In the girls division, Czech rider Diana Augustinova was on a good form and took the first place with good tricks and style. Second place went to Martina Droppova from Slovakia and third was taken by Bara Maresova.
From the two heats of the over 16 division, the best ten made the finals. Ondra Camrda took the win and was stoked to get a new snowboard, second went to last year’s under-15 winner Tomas Cisar who confirmed his talents by showing that he can fight for the box even amongst older peers. According to more experienced riders, Tomas will surely belong amongst the best Czech jibbers. Third place went to Jiri Svetlik.
In the Open division (pro riders) things really took off and we saw some great riding. The top 5 riders advanced to the finals where 6000 CZK prize money and a place in the Avoriaz PBRJ finals were at stake. Top spot went to Tomas Raiser. Second place went to Dan Paulicek and the third went to a known jibber David Čonka .
