 POOL LEGENDS OF SKATE JOIN A STELLAR LINEUP FOR

VOLCOM BOWL-A-RAMA™ GETXO

 

Action sports fans will witness the world’s best skaters, pool legends and the “Godfathers” of skate, coming together for the inaugural Volcom BOWL-A-RAMA™ Getxo at La Kantera skatepark, Arrigunaga beach in the Abra Bay of Getxo, Spain.

« For VOLCOM, hosting a bowl event in the basque country at legendary La Kantara as well as joining forces with  longtime legendary team rider and local resident ALAIN GOIKOTXEA is simply fantastic, we are so happy to bring all this together and trust the event will be a great time well spent. » said Remy Stratton, Volcom VP of skateboarding.

A major part of the festivities is the “Festival of the Skateboard” which is a week dedicated to celebrating art, music and true skateboard culture. The Festival of the Skateboard will feature old school skate sessions, barbeques, a surprise music element, The Love & Guts art show, Volcom BOWL-A-RAMA™ Getxo competition and the after party.

“I’ve never been to Spain but the bowl is very backyard like a pool, Jeff Grosso said I’m going to like it, a bowl on the beach, it's a no brainer.” Says pool legend Steve Alba (SAlba).

The international PRO list is one of the strongest BOWL-A-RAMA has had with Al Partanen, Alain Goikoetxea, Alex Perelson, Alex Sorgente, Ben Raybourn, Bjorn Lillesoe, Bugs Fardell, Chris Russell, Colin Provost, Cory Juneau, Danny Leon, David Sanchez, Diego Doural, Felipe Foguinho, Georgio Zattoni, Grant Taylor, Ivan Rivado, James McInnes, Josh Borden, Murilo Peres, Nilo Pecanha, Nolan Munroe, Otavio Neto, Pedro Barros, Raney Beres, Rion Linderman, Rob Lorifice, Rune Glifberg, Sam Beckett, Sky Siljeg, Steven Pineiro, Vi Kakinho and Vincent Matheron, with more to be confirmed.

The lineup of MASTERS is a who’s who of the legends and the oriinal pool “godfathers” in skateboarding including Brad Bowman, Eddie “El Gato” Elguera, Lester Kasai, Nick Couscouris, Nicky Guerrero, Pat Ngoho, Peter Hewitt, Sean Goff, Steve Alba and Txus Dominguez (La Kantera skate park designer).

Volcom BOWL-A-RAMA™ Getxo (Basque Country) will showcase the world's best and iconic Pro and Master’s bowl skateboarders as they grapple for the title of Volcom BOWL-A-RAMA™ Getxo champion and for a total prize purse of $US30,000.

“Bowl skating is diverse with flow bowls, pro bowls, snake runs and the rest all being part of the whole. It all comes from backyard pool skating though. La Kantera is one of the closest skatepark bowls in the world to what it feels like to ride an actual backyard pool. Being able to hold BOWL-A-RAMA in such a spot feels like we’re honouring all those who came before and created what we’re all taking part in now. Having SAlba, who won the first professional bowl competition and Brad Bowman and Eddie Elguara all dropping in just makes it that more special. Also, with such a wide international field making up the pro division we couldn’t ask for a better first year. Looking forward to seeing you all at the beach for Volcom BOWL-A-RAMA Getxo”. Says Chad Ford, Director of Frontside Events.

BOWL-A-RAMA™ was born on Bondi Beach – Sydney, Australia in 2005 and is the biggest professional concrete series in the World. With Wellington, Bondi, NYC and the addition of Getxo, BOWL-A-RAMA can now call some of the most iconic destinations in the world home.

Holy Stokes! a Real Life Happening - Different Stokes
Our friends over at The Berrics and The Skateboard Mag have also put together some rad edits showcasing some b-sides and alt-angles from Holy Stokes! a Real Life Happening! The Berrics 'Different Stokes' edit above is a prime example. Barcelona was one of the last trips we went on to film for Holy Stokes! a Real Life Happening and a good amount of the footage made it into the movie, but there was still some footage that just didn't make it. Below are a few more edits put together by The Skateboard Mag and The Berrics, stay tuned for more and don't forget to download your copy of Holy Stokes! a Real Life Happening. Pooling Around is a segment on The Skateboard Mag that explores all the drained pits sprawled out along California. If you've seen the pool section in Holy Stokes! a Real Life Happening then you know that we spent a great deal of time finding, cleaning and shredding these pools! This episode of 'Pooling Around' focuses on some of those missions. 'Across America' is another rad edit by The Skateboard Mag. Last summer we hopped on the road with our Wild in the Parks crew and followed them around America filming for Holy Stokes! a Real Life Happening with one lucky skater from the contest that was chosen by Caswell Berry. We gathered a lot of footage during that summer and this edit highlights most of went down! Lastly, The Berrics remixed some of David Gonzalez's footage from the Holy Stokes! a Real Life Happening. Be sure to check The Berrics and The Skateboard Mag for more coverage in the coming weeks!

Dustin Dollin - Behind the Scenes - Holy Stokes! Nightmare Skit
During the filming of Holy Stokes! a Real Life Happening Dustin Dollin was battling a series of injuries and coming off filming for Vans' Propeller, so his body was in rough shape. Never to be the one to give up, Dustin still tried to film for Holy Stokes! a Real Life Happening, but yet again the injuries kept stacking up. Just look at his attempts at kickflipping into the infamous carwash bank! He tried that multiple times, each time putting him out for a couple weeks. Somewhere along the line Dustin had this idea to film a 'Nightmare Skit' heavily influenced by the one from Peewee Hermans Big Adventure. With a star cast including Caswell Berry, Omar Hassan, Dane Burman, CJ Collins, Andrew Reynolds, Shane Heyl, Jamie Hart Gary Rogers and Brewce Martin. Filmed in the span of two long days in the Volcom HQ parking lot and skatepark we were all happy with the result. In celebration of Dustin Dollin's birthday today (June 26th) here are some photos from behind the scenes and don't forget to download your copy of Holy Stokes! a Real Life Happening.

Holy Stokes! a Real Life Happening - New Zealand Trip
Back in April 2014 we took a trip down to New Zealand to visit our good friend and Kiwi skateboarding legend Lee Ralph with Grant Taylor, Daan van der Linden, Pedro Barros, Ben Raemers, Alain Goikoetxea, Omar Hassan, Rune Glifberg and Thrasher Magazine's Jake Phelps and their filmer P-Stone. We were also down there to film for Holy Stokes! a Real Life Happening and turned out rather successful as there was enough footage to warrant an entire section to our New Zealand trip. Photos from this trip appeared in the October 2014 issue of Thrasher Magazine which you can READ HERE. In the mean time watch this 3 part 'Bru-Ray' series filmed and edited by P-Stone and download Holy Stokes! a Real Life Happening.
