The Vans Propeller Latin America tour recently rolled through the skateboarding hotbed of Mar Del Plata, Argentina. Curren Caples, Chima Ferguson, Kyle Walker, Elijah Berle, Rowan Zorilla and Chris Russell did what they do best by feeding off the crowd and wrecking the park for the best demo of the tour yet.
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:
1st Cody Chapman
2nd Chris Russell
3rd Kevin Kowalski
4th John Gardner
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
Creature Skateboards has dished out a skate media assault today with parts from four of its masterful hellions. Willis Kimbel gets wickedly loose on diy parks, ramps, rails and everything in between through the Transworld Skateboarding camp’s online portal, Ryan Reyes comes back from injured reserve status with a knee brace and a vengeance over at Thrasher Magazine, Chris Russell slays every bowl and pool to shreds with The Skateboard Mag documenting his every move and David Gravette is soon to let out a heap of heavy hammers at The Berrics site. Creature gets it rolling into the Halloweekend Massacre!
