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.

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.

Volcom at the Vans Pro-Tec pool party

This years Van's Pro-Tec Pool Party lived up to it's reputation by being one of the most exciting bowl events of the year. The sessions are always intense and on edge all day. It was apparent from the start that Bucky, Pedro and Rune (each of which have won this event more than once in past years) were going to battle it out all the way through to the finals and that's exactly what happened. The results were Bucky 1st, Pedro 2nd and Rune 3rd. Big thanks from Volcom to Pedro and Rune for putting forth a truly gnarly day of battle. Being there was incredible and it's no doubt the crowds were equally impressed. The whole block was roaring.
