White Rock Skatepark 2014

The Vancouver Bowl series made a stop at the White Rock Skatepark. Usually this stop on the 20 year long Bowl Series has the smallest turn out.

This year was different. With some great carpooling, a lot of skaters turned out. They made the drive from Vancouver, Surrey, Maple Ridge, North Vancouver, and some came all the way from Squamish.

This bowl has a unique design. The flowing curves or Seylynn, Griffin, and Whistler bowl, are straigthened. This creates a fast capsule like bowl with mellow ditch at the top, two hips, a fun NOPING half pipe and a steep and deep bowl at the bottom.

Watch the video to see what this park is all about. Also check out Seb’s Air Runner at the end.

Griffin Skatepark Bowl Series Contest 2012

The Griffin Skatepark hosted a stop of the 2012 Vancouver bowl series. It was postponed twice because of rainy days in North Vancouver. This is what we have to live with when we are skating a skatepark that sits in a rain forest.

The contest went off great. There was a good turn out and Andy Anderson even showed up after taking a bus all the way from White Rock, BC. Adam Hopkins ruled the day with huge airs and tech tricks. Danny Hagge was convinced to skate after first complaining that his back was hurting from hauling timber for his company Vancouver Urban Timberworks.

There is no music in this episode so the viewer can get a feel for the event. The sounds of the skatepark and Cuz on the mike. Cuz did a great job of announcing this year’s contest.
