We head out to Sooke, BC for an early 2015 skateboard contest. This showcased some great Vancouver Island skaters. Local Merrick Orr took First Place with a crazy drop in from the roof and a kickflip over a rarely skated hip.

On our way to Victoria, we stopped and let Andy Anderson loose on a street spot.

Then we went to One Six Skateshop for the Conspiracy Skateboard video premiere. After there was a hot Best Trick Contest.

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 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.
