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.

Whistler Bowl Series 2013

Crowning a King is tough in skateboarding. This year’s contest was even more difficult.

There are two rules that have been around since the beginning of The Bowl Series. No one can win more than once. To win King of the Bowl you must skate every stop of the series.

All year there were skaters that came to every contest and skated really well. But they had won before.

There were skaters that hadn’t won, but they didn’t skate every stop in the contest series.

But that is only if you are looking at the Advanced category. This year’s winner skated every contest, and placed top 3 at every bowl.

Watch the video to see who won.

Beef Under The Chief 2013

This year’s Beef Under The Chief contest was insane. Most of the usual suspects showed. Andy Anderson, Don Bushman, Eve Feaver, Hippie Mike, and Micheal James.

But this year there was some added skaters, James Clarke, Brad Muscat and Calum (from Scotland).

The energy was high and so was James Clarke as he flew the biggest airs of the day. Watch the video to see if he takes first place.

Sponsors of the Contest were: Vans Shoes, Stuntwood Skateshop and Sector 9

Bowl Series at the Griffin Bowl 2013

This is the second stop of the 19th annual Vancouver Bowl Series. It was at Griffin Bowl in North Vancouver, BC. The second stop is one of the funnest and the bowl is great for a contest.

Griffin Bowl is a short snake run into a bowl with some vert spots in the deep end. Still the locals are able to launch huge airs out and great tech tricks in the ditch.

Watch as Danny Hagge takes first place and destroys the park. Other stand outs are Andy Anderson, Clinton, Brad Muscat, Don Bushman, Rob Ricaby, and Adam Richter.

Big thanks to Mike Strato, and Cuz Perry for playing host to a great day in the sun!

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.

Bowl Series 2012 Kickoff

The North Vancouver bowl Seylynn was host to the start of the 2012 Bowl Series. This year we had skaters from everywhere around Vancouver; East Van, Surrey, Richmond, White Rock and North Vancouver.

The volunteers have been keeping this alive for many years since the demise of The Boarding House. Originally conceived by John Ramondo, owner of the boarding house, the bowl series has kept on going. It celebrates skating’s history and allows today’s skaters to show the old bowls some love.

Enjoy the video.

Griffin Skatepark 2011

In this episode we go to the Griffin skatepark in North Vancouver, BC. This is the second stop of the Vancouver Bowl Series.

This local bowl contest has had a long history. 17 years of contests at all of the major bowl style skateparks around BC.

The Boarding House skateshop (RIP) started this series. After closing its doors, the local skate community has picked up the cause. Local skaters have organized the contest every year since. No financial interest. No cool guy credit. No big sponsor paycheques. Just a strong love of skateboarding drives these contests.

Respect.

Canada Day 2011 Seylynn Skatepark

Canada Day has always been a cause for celebration. Celebrate the birth of the nation of Canada.

What better way than getting together with a few hundred skaters and starting the Bowl Series 2011? This year was a beautiful day filled with skating, drinking, fireworks and some crashes.

The contest itself is loosely organized and judged on a scale of Rad. The big winners each year aren’t the Advanced or Sponsored guys. Its the Beginner category that walks away with armloads of gear to stoke them out and keep them interested. Always remember to support the generation behind you.

Thanks go to all this years sponsors: RDS apparel, Skull Skates, Vans Footwear, Sector Nine and many more that I can’t remember. Oh yeah “Auto Repairs R Wee” gave away shirts and decks. Wee, you’re awesome! Thanks for fixing my truck.
