Big Bowl Success In Frankston

The 2nd annual Bowlriders Australia Big Bowl competition visited the Frankston Skate Park on Sunday April the 13th as riders from all over the country converged on the Frankston Big Bowl in front of a sell-out crowd who witnessed some of the best skating Australia has to offer.

Proceedings kicked off with the Masters division, consisting of bowl skating royalty including Billy Harrison, Luke Foster & Tom Flaherty. Luke Foster showed no signs of slowing down throwing down his full swag of tricks including a massive F/S Rock in the deep end & extended statue like Inverts that would have been impossible to take a bad photo of! The Groms were up next & they gave us a glimpse into the bright future of Aussie bowl skating with young ripper & eventual winner Ryan Helm knocking out Kicky B/S indys whilst little legend Zepp Hayes was smashin’ huge B/S 5.0’s over the death box!

On to the main event, the Open division; where loads of cash & more importantly glory was on the line! This was undoubtedly some of the best skating that the Frankston Big Bowl has ever had the pleasure of receiving. All of the riders put on an absolutely clinical display! Local rider Jimmy Moore blew the lid of the joint with his massive F/S Blunt in the deep end whilst Trevor Ward was throwing down massive Rodeos but the day belonged to R.J whom never looked like losing it from start to finish!

Organisers and those there give big thanks to Daniel Kirk from the Bowlriders crew for all of his hard work in promoting and running the event! We’re already looking forward to next year!
