Red Bull’s Lost Bowl Invitational

YouTube Preview Image On Saturday, October 24th, 2015 Red Bull Skateboarding teamed up with Creature & Santa Cruz Skateboards/Indy Trucks/OJ Wheels/Bronson Speed Co. to throw a 21-man invite-only backyard bowl bash at Pat Lowery’s legendary Richmond, Virginia Lost Bowl.

With a field of some of the top ams, pros and East Coast up and comers, the day consisted of seven 7-minute 3-man heats followed by a 29-minute everyone-in chaos session set to Slayer’s “Reign in Blood” (inspired by Jim’s Ramp Jam of 1996) and three best tricks. In a rarely seen contest decision, the inmates were put in charge of the asylum and the 21 skaters were asked to judge themselves and pick the top 3 winners. The results, as voted on by the skaters in the contest are as follows:

Final Results
1st Cody Chapman
2nd Chris Russell
3rd Kevin Kowalski
4th John Gardner

Best Trick
John Gardner – Boneless into the pool
Chris Gregson – Frontside kickflip over the ladder

Jack Fardell – Nose manual
Alex Sorgente – Backside flip

Josh Borden – Nosegrind
Ben Hatchell – Half Cab Front blunt

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!
