The newly launched International Skateboarder’s Union has just wrapped up its first outing with the 7th Annual Bowl-A-Rama event at Wellington, New Zealand’s Waitangi Bowl. Brazil’s Pedro Barros poured on a heavy serving of gnarliness with bio airs and fluid lines with speed and consistency to take top honors in the Pro division. First-time Bowl-A-Rama participant Brian Patch stuck to his guns to claim the Masters title.
Pro skateboarding vet Matt Beach just dished out this sick two and a half minute piece that shows he’s still got the magic in his soul and lightfooted skills on top of his griptape. Truly inspirational.
With the support of Vans, Steve Caballero will be hosting an all-star art show in San Jose, California this Friday, February 7th dedicated to the longest running skate shoe in history, his own Half Cab. Lots of great friends, skaters and artists will converge to celebrate the “Birth of an Icon” event. Don’t miss this one!
