Rowan Zorilla on Vans

Rowan ZorillaVans has proudly announced the addition of Rowan Zorilla to its skate footwear and growing apparel roster. Rowan’s natural ability to charge a bowl as hard as he can skate a 12-stair rail, switch and regular makes him the perfect fit. In the past year, RoZo has gone from relatively underground flow ripper to full Vans and Baker skateboards Am and is working to bang out a mind-melting video part for this spring’s highly anticipated Vans skateboarding video.

Pitcrew Needs Our Help

Pitcrew ShopAs we all know, this winter season has been brutally tough on the east coast. On Sunday, February 15th, the water pipes in the building above the Pitcrew skateshop froze and burst and water soaked and damaged much of the inventory in the front half of the shop. The shop has been closed since and is in need of major repairs, with a possible total loss situation.

While insurance will cover some of the losses, they are in a bind until the help from insurance comes through, which could be months away. Tim and Malcom want to keep supporting skateboarding in the DC area in a grassroots way, but they also have to now support rebuilding the shop and keeping roofs over their dedicated staff’s heads.

They have had some really generous outreach so far from industry and skaters themselves offering to help. An online Pitcrew Flood Fund has been set up and any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your help in getting Pitcrew back where they belong – dedicated to skateboarding.

Vans Bowl-A-Rama 2015 Final Results

Bowlarama 2015After a brief rain delay earlier in the morning, 2015’s Bowl-A-Rama had no problem heating up and entertaining both those in attendance in Bondi Beach, Australia and on their computers or mobile devices around the planet. The Masters’ set the tone and the raised the bar quite high with Chris Miller’s welcomed first appearance at the Bowl-A-Rama event. Ultimately, Tony Hawk proved once again in the finals that he is the Jedi to beat as he took home the repeat victory.

Early on in the Pro Finals Team Padless Ambassador, Chris Russell set the place on fire as he continued to rip with gnarly lines and edge of the seat stunts. Unfortunately, he took a heavy fall and hit is head which resulted in some fresh stitches to take back home to the US. He’ll be fine otherwise. Bucky (now in his forties) poured on the juice and switched it up, backed it up, and held off the teenagers and others younger than him from taking away his rightful win. All in all, the level of skating stepped up once again, the webcast crew with Corbin Harris and Neal Hendrix kept it entertaining, and Bowl-A-Rama 2015 was a great event!
