  • Barros and Mountain Win Vans Bowl-A-Rama NYC

    New York City was entertained by many of the best young guns and legends from skateboarding’s bowlriding world this past Saturday. Both Pros and Masters divisions turned up the heat for the inaugural Vans BOWL-A-RAMA NYC and delivered one hell of a powerful showing for the crowds that gathered at the Hudson River Park’s Pier 62 Skatepark.

    In the Masters division Lance Mountain absolutely killed it and ripped into first with Steve Caballero taking second place followed by Eddie “El Gato” Elguera in third.

    The Pros battled it out throughout the afternoon with the now seven time BOWL-A-RAMA winner Pedro Barros seized first place in the Pro division, followed closely by 14-year old Alex Sorgente, and Ben Hatchell landing in third place.

    The week gave back to the New York skateboarding community in true Bowl-A-Rama style. The LOVE+ GUTS art show “Empty Culture”, which paid homage to the accidental marriage between skateboarders and the backyard pool, broke the all time bar sales record at Max Fish which hosted the event.

    The newest addition to the Bowl-A-Rama’s awards ceremony was the “Spirit of Kessler Award” in honor of the late and great Andy Kessler. This special award was designated for any skater across the enitre competition that best exemplified Andy’s spirit in their skating and general stoke. The legendary George Orton took out the award that was selected by Kessler’s oldest and best friend Puppet and had the skaters and spectators gathered cheering in agreement and approval.
