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!
