STOP #6 OF VOLCOM’S NORTH AMERICAN PBRJ TOUR
Stop #6 of Volcom’s Peanut Butter and Rail Jam Tour went down at Moonlight Basin, MT on February 4, 2012.

We pre-booked new snow and a blue bird day and Moonlight delivered! We were greeted with flawless blue skies, majestic views, and 100 competitors from around the nation hungry to compete for PBRJ glory. Little did we know what we had in store for us….


First things first, the park crew out did themselves this year. The features were creative and beastly. The contest site consisted of the Camel Back: a double rainbow box, the Tally Whacker Tanks: two flat propane tanks to a single down propane tank, and a MASSIVE down flat down: a solid 40 feet of steel. A formidable challenge for a 20-minute heat but guess who was up for it? Mon-tuckey!

Gapping Out To Front Board!

The 15 and Under Division got things started off. Any doubts that these groms could handle the beast of a set-up were quickly dashed away. Even 5-year-old Will Gannon stepped up to the camel back! Will was awarded a Volcom Full Zip Sweatshirt for being one of the most inspiring riders of the day. In the end Jared Elston would claim victory over the 15 and Under Division but Noah Vincent and Brady Coffman were not far behind. We’ll look forward to seeing what the future holds for these young bucks.

Speed Gap!

The Ladies Open Division took to the site without batting an eyelash. Soon enough these girls were sliding the rails clean and making it look stylish in the process. It was Minnesota’s Vanessa Moore who wowed the crowd when she laid down a 5050-front board 270 out on the Talley Whacker Tanks. Sarris McComb, as always, had a good showing and took home 2nd place. Kayla Henrey’s skills earned her a 3rd place finish. Good work to all the ladies who stepped it up this year!

Free Lunch!

We finished the day with the Open Division. These guys were getting BUCK WILD! Flip in, flip out, spin in, spin out, gap in, gap out, you want it, they got it. The showmanship was on full display.
