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.

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.
