BOWLZILLA GOLD COAST BRINGS THE HEAT

BOWLZILLA Gold Coast injected some well needed heat into the Australian skateboarding world today with the largest Equality In Skateboarding prize purse in its history.

 

BOWLZILLA Gold Coast had great partners this year with Yeah Girl and Surf Dive ‘n Ski, that helped push skateboarding forward with a big statement in fairness for all in skateboarding. What is already an exciting event managed to ignite with this goodwill which saw the largest participation so far with the most enthusiastic competitive field Australia has seen in a long time. This enthusiasm is made possible because BOWLZILLA Gold Coast is a skater owned and run event, it is of its community for its community. Everyone is stoked to be part of something that supports their friends and it is really obvious in the energy and fun levels on display all week.

 

BOWLZILLA Gold Coast is the largest park / bowl competition in Australia and the scoring is based around use of the whole park in each run with the best run counting. The only way to move ahead to the finals was by using the whole park in your runs. The skaters that stuck to this stood out above all the others with the flow and style this approach gives their skating.  

 

Women’s skateboarding is going through a renaissance globally which was clearly evident today at BOWLZILLA Gold Coast. No longer content to wait for the skateboard industry and the world at large to recognise them, they are out there blazing their own path. Shari Lawson who was the first women to ever judge a professional skateboard competition last year at BOWLZILLA Gold Coast was back again this year on the panel to oversee the largest ever Equality In Skateboarding cash prize purse in Australian history. BOWLZILLA Gold Coast is proud to be working with the women’s scene to amplify their voice and ensure they control their platform. The first of many big steps forward.

 

The week’s festivities kicked off with Yeah Girl and Beach Burrito Company hosting the opening party on Thursday night at Coolangatta, then on Friday night the locals shared their hospitality with the many visitors from Malaysia, UK, New Zealand, Brazil, Finland, USA and beyond with a session at Salk Oval skatepark. The competition ran Saturday at Elanora skatepark and on Saturday night it all wrapped up with Dive In hosted by Yeah Girl and Surf Dive ‘n Ski at Beach Burrito Company in Coolangatta. Another great week to finish off the summer season on the Gold Coast. Bring on 2019 BOWLZILLA Gold Coast.

BOWLZILLA Gold Coast has long term plans to grow every year to increase the fun potential for Australian skating by using a competition as the excuse to gather the widest range of generations of skaters for good times and great skating. BOWLZILLA Gold Coast invites all the skaters to come and be part and have a say in how they want their fun.

 

City of Gold Coast Councillor Daphne McDonald proudly supported the BOWLZILLA Gold Coast events for a third year running. She was instrumental in the funding of the skatepark, getting the lights in, building out the site to better enable events to happen and being a fantastic advocate for skateboarding in general. Everyone at the event is grateful for her ongoing support. This year all the competitors wanted to give her a special thank you and all signed a unique piece of memorabilia for her in appreciation.

 

“This year has been a long time coming and we at BOWLZILLA are so proud to be part of it. Women make up over 50% of Australia and the World’s population and always get considerably less. To do something that helps in some small way move everyone forward to an equal footing in the lifestyle we love so much fills us with stoke. Everyone in skateboarding won today with what was achieved. Thanks to Councillor Daphne McDonald’s very generous ongoing support and belief in the skateboarding community we have been able to build a platform that made today possible. Gold Coast City Council, Tourism and Events Queensland, Goliath, Fiik, Gold Coast Skateboard Coaching, Beach Burrito Company, Australian Skateboarding Federation, International Skateboarder’s Union all assisted and Yeah Girl and Surf Dive ‘n Ski gave it the extra nudge to really make the moment so awesome. Thank you everyone and looking forward to skating with you all again next year at BOWLZILLA Gold Coast 2019.” Chad Ford – Director of BOWLZILLA and Miryoku Agency LLC.

 

BOWLZILLA Gold Coast would not be possible without the incredible support of its sponsors and supporters, a huge thank you to; Gold Coast City Council, Beach Burrito Company, Protec, Goliath Distribution, Fiik Skateboards, Gold Coast Skateboard Coaching, Yeah Girl, ISU, Darkside, Dickies, ASF, Redhead Or Dead Events and Miryoku Agency.

BOWLZILLA ROCKING THE FOUNDATIONS

RJBarbaro-FrontsideAirStaleFish-Photo Paul Newman.JPG

Wellington City Council, International Skateboarder’s Union, Redhead or Dead Events, Skateboarding New Zealand and Miryoku Agency staged the New Zealand 2018 National Titles Park / Bowl Skateboarding Championships with BOWLZILLA Wellington in the Nation’s Capital.

 

SBNZ and ISU continued the New Zealand National Skateboarding Park / Bowl competition series. It all culminated on the weekend with BOWLZILLA Wellington. Wellington once again was the greatest stage for skateboarders in the nation.

 

Wellington always surprises – ALWAYS! Terrible weather all week. The day started overcast and freezing. It felt like there was something changing as the day moved forward though. You could see it in the skating and hear it in the crowd. The weather changed for the better and the whole event just went crazy. Then during all of that, completely out of the blue in the middle of the comp, Lydia and Daroll Clark from Yeah Gnar came up and gave cash to equalise the prize purse with the Women's division to the Open division. They contributed $5350 and asked for nothing in return. They just want to support women and see them equitably treated. What was already an amazing day in New Zealand skate history just became the best. Not only the first but a very large Equality in Skateboarding moment in New Zealand. It would be safe to say today was the proudest day in New Zealand skateboarding history.

 

The National Champions crowned were; Women - Krysta Ashwell, 16 & Under - Soul Kropelnicki, Masters – Ramon Thackwell, Open – Shaun Boucher. With Competition title going to Australian RJ Barbaro, for the third year straight. R.J and Shaun were both successful in maintaining their titles from 2016 and 2017, what an amazing feat that is. With New Zealand having the representative competitor for all of Oceania at last year’s World Championships; Bowman Hansen, there is a lot of interest and excitement building in the local talent. BOWLZILLA Wellington as the National Titles is the greatest platform for local riders and their stepping stone onto the world stage. The skating at this year’s event shows there is a bright future ahead for New Zealand skateboarding.

There was NZ$8,000 in prize money and that ended up growing to NZ$13,350 distributed amongst the Women, Open and Masters divisions. There was also  $2000 worth of prizes, donated by; Fusion Surf / Skate, Vans, Manual Magazine and Dickies, for the 16 & Under and Women’s divisions, which were distributed amongst all the competitors.

 

“There could be no better place for the National Titles of Park skating in New Zealand than the Nation’s Capital – Wellington. The partnership between BOWLZILLA Wellington, SBNZ, ISU, Miryoku Agency, Redhead Or Dead Events and all the sponsors; Irrom, Spitfire, Fusion, The Cambridge Hotel, Manual Magazine and Manky Chops is doing great things for New Zealand skateboarding. The talent we have coming up and the amazing riders we already have on the world stage backs up what we are doing at SBNZ. There are great times ahead for New Zealand skateboarders and we look forward to assisting them every way we can” Jesse Peters – Director, SBNZ.

 

It was another great year for BOWLZILLA Wellington with the festival hosting; ARTZILLA – art show, which was produced by Manky Chops, Fusion Surf / Skate – welcome party, the competition and wrapping it up with the Dive In - party at Basque supported by Tuatara. Every single part of it lived up to Wellington’s reputation as the best place to be in New Zealand.

 

"Three years in and we’re just getting started. Every year we see the local talent get better and more skaters drop in. The level of skating and interest in them is growing noticeably each year. There are some exciting times ahead for New Zealand skating that we are looking forward to sharing with everyone but right now we just want to celebrate the epicness that was BOWLZILLA Wellington 2018 and thank all of our supporters, sponsors, fans, the skaters and especially Yeah Gnar!” Chad Ford – Director, BOWLZILLA Wellington.

 

Without the very generous support of the sponsors none of BOWLZILLA Wellington would be possible, so a huge thank you goes to; Wellington City Council, Skateboarding New Zealand, International Skateboarder’s Union, Fusion Surf/Skate, Manual Magazine, Manky Chops, Yeah Gnar, Powerhaus European Vehicle Workshop, Basque, The Cambridge Hotel, the generous prizes from Dickies and Vans and the organisational skills of Redhead or Dead Events and Miryoku Agency. With ongoing support like this the opportunities for New Zealand skating are awesome.

 

We would like to acknowledge and thank all of the international attending skaters for their support of the event and skateboarding in New Zealand; Louis Newman - Australia (16 & Under), Oksana Lines - USA (Women), Lester Kasai - USA (Masters), Sean Goff - UK (Masters), George Richards – Australia (Open), Brodie Jarret – Australia (Open) Sox – Wales 9 Open), Rob Ayton – UK (Open) and of course R.J. Barbaro – Australia (Open).

BOWLZILLA IN NUMBERS TOO BIG TO IGNORE

Yeah Girl and Surf Dive ‘n Ski along with International Skateboarder’s Union, Australian Skateboarding Federation and Miryoku Agency are breaking boundaries and setting standards this year at BOWLZILLA Gold Coast.

 

Yeah Girl and Surf Dive ‘n Ski have partnered up to assist BOWLZILLA in creating the highest paid Equality-in-Skateboarding event in Australian history. Australian Skatepark League launched 2017 with equal pay for the first time in Australia in both the Open and Women’s divisions and in 2018 BOWLZILLA Gold Coast gratefully acknowledges and raises that bar. As the international women’s skateboarding community grows stronger and blazes their own path, BOWLZILLA is proud to do its part in supporting them.

 

“To be able to work with BOWLZILLA and help to raise funds for an equal prize purse is an honour. It’s something that the women’s skate community has been constantly pushing for and it's great to finally have events like BOWLZILLA, that support the push for equality and recognise the talent and dedication in women's skateboarding." Yeah Girl – Director; Sarah Huston.

 

The foundation all of this is built on is the incredible support and recognition of skateboarding by City of Gold Coast. CoGC has built more skateparks per capita than any other city in Australia which has provided the best stage to produce an event like BOWLZILLA Gold Coast. This year Tourism and Events Queensland are facilitating the opportunity to promote and boast about that epic achievement and the fantastic community it represents.

 

The Queensland Government, via Tourism and Events Queensland, is proud to support BOWLZILLA which features on the It’s Live! in Queensland events calendar. Queensland, just the place to experience Australia’s best live events.

 

BOWLZILLA Gold Coast is not just a skateboard competition, it is a festival of skateboarding. As part of the festival this year there is; a girl’s learn to ride clinic with Yeah Girl, Gold Coast Skateboard Coaching and Surf Dive ‘n Ski, art shows, food and parties with Beach Burrito Company, Yeah Girl and Surf Dive ‘n Ski and loads of gathering and sessions at the many amazing skateparks the Gold Coast has to offer.

 

City of Gold Coast Councillor Daphne McDonald has given huge support to skateboarding on the Gold Coast through; funding facilities, upgrading and maintaining those facilities so they can support amazing events like BOWLZILLA Gold Coast and even supporting those events that promote the best of the Gold Coast community both near and far. “I am proud to partner with BOWLZILLA for the third consecutive year and sponsor the largest meet for skaters in Queensland at Pines Skate Bowl at Elanora. The growth of BOWLZILLA is really exciting as the Gold Coast sets the stage for this first class athletic and creative international event. BOWLZILLA is a festival bringing together, world champion and local skaters , music and art. An event for the whole of the Gold Coast community to enjoy.” City of Gold Coast – Councillor Daphne McDonald.

 

More and more riders from around the world are being drawn to this fast paced, exciting and fun part of skateboarding. With the growth in public skateparks around the world which means easier and less restricted access to this type of skating plus how much fun it is, it is no wonder it is the fastest growing part of the community.

 

“BOWLZILLA Gold Coast is the biggest gathering of skateboard generations in Australia at a by skaters for skaters event. We are about our community 100%. The incredible support we receive from GCCC, TEQ, Yeah Girl x Surf Dive ‘n Ski, ASF and everyone else in supporting skaters as they want to be supported and represented is something we work very hard to honour year in year out. What we are achieving this year is a huge testament to our communities strength. Equality in Skateboarding has taken another step forward. ” Chad Ford; BOWLZILLA – Director.

BOWLZILLA SHAKING THE CAPITAL

New Zealand skating is put on the world stage at BOWLZILLA Wellington 2018. Wellington City Council, International Skateboarder’s Union, Redhead or Dead Events, Skateboarding New Zealand and Miryoku Agency are all combining forces to get Wellington shaking.

 

BOWLZILLA Wellington is the all-encompassing New Zealand National Bowl / Park Skating Titles. SBNZ the National Governing body of skateboarding in NZ, sanctions this event as the National competition series final. With such great honour, all stops are pulled out to ensure it is the biggest celebration of skateboarding and its culture all year in New Zealand.

 

There is excitement building for this third year of BOWLZILLA Wellington; 10th March at Waitangi Park, Wellington. The competition is on for the next National Champions with divisions for 16 & Under, Women, Masters 40+ and Pro/Am Open. With; art shows, parties, music, gatherings, barbecues, good times and the competition itself, BOWLZILLA Wellington is going to be the greatest weekend of New Zealand skating in 2018.

 

With BOWLZILLA Wellington taking on such an important role in the national landscape and the partnership with national governing body SBNZ and skateboarding now an official Olympic sport, there is greater interest and support coming from national government agencies and the public at large. When you add in that the Oceania representative rider Bowman Hansen at this year’s Park World Champs comes from Taupo, New Zealand, there are big things ahead for New Zealand skateboarding and BOWLZILLA Wellington on the 10th of March 2018 is the biggest stage for it.

 

"What a year for New Zealand skateboarding! Bowman Hansen has done us all proud and proven what we have been saying all along – we have the best talent pool of skaters in New Zealand. We have had a big year of behind the scenes planning, to lay the ground work for a stable platform for New Zealand skateboarding for a long time into the future. Having BOWLZILLA Wellington as our National Final is the feather in the cap" Jesse Peters, Director – SKATEBOARDING NEW ZEALAND - SBNZ

 

To create fantastic opportunities like these for skateboarders in New Zealand you need great support, that is provided by; Wellington City Council, SBNZ, International Skateboarder’s Union, Fusion Surf/Skate, Manual Magazine, Manky Chops, and the organisational skills of Redhead or Dead Events and Miryoku Agency. They have all pooled together to build events that help nurture scenes, create opportunity for local skaters and create amazing moments to celebrate all that make New Zealand skateboarding great with art, music and the competitions.

 

“Art, music, parties, friends and the best skating of the year all mixed together in the funnest town in New Zealand. BOWLZILLA Wellington is going to be the biggest celebration of our friends and their talent for 2018 in New Zealand. We invite everyone to come and be part of it.”  BOWLZILLA Director – Chad Ford.

 

BOWLZILLA was born out of likeminded friends in the skateboard community looking for new platforms to promote their friends extraordinary talents, talents that run in oversupply within skateboarding but not are often seen in the outside world. BOWLZILLA Wellington is the biggest platform for showcasing all of this amazing talent in skateboarding in New Zealand. There is an open invite for everyone to come and be part of the celebration.

BOWLZILLA Gold Coast 2017 Storms the Coast

BOWLZILLA Gold Coast dodged all the weather and managed a perfect blue sky day and amazing competition for the second year running.

 

BOWLZILLA Gold Coast built upon last year’s successes to give Australian skating its own fun skater owned and run event. It was an awesome week to celebrate all that makes skateboarding great with art, music and the competition.

 

The weather looked terrible all week with some even predicting catastrophic conditions for the Saturday. Thanks to some good connections (thanks Sarah) the sky turned blue and the competition ran with Saturday remaining mainly hot and sunny. Given only half the competition could be held in Wellington the week before it was decided on the day to amend the schedule and push through as quickly as possible to ensure all skaters got their fair share.

 

New BOWLZILLA Gold Coast champions were chosen across 3 of 4 divisions. As it is a park / bowl competition the scoring is based around use of the whole park in each run with the best run counting. The riders that embraced this approach best by using the whole bowl in their best run ended up on the podium.

 

The women’s skateboarding scene is going from strength to strength at the moment and BOWLZILLA wants to do everything it can to support and encourage this. For the first time in an Australian major skateboard competition, a female judge was on the panel for the whole event. Shari Lawson did an amazing job along with her fellow panellists Bevin Newton and Brodie Jarret. Shari wasn’t chosen because of a quota but because it is long overdue and she deserved the job. This will be a permanent position at BOWLZILLA Gold Coast from here on.

 

The week’s festivities kicked off with Beach Burrito Company hosting the opening party on Thursday night at Coolangatta, then on Friday night Yeah Girl did the Gold Coast premiere of the international all women’s skateboard film “Quit Your Day Job” which opened to thunderous applause and they were kept company on the night by Fiik Skateboards and their film premiere of “Steady Lurking” showcasing the best of local talent and humour at Warehouse No.5. The competition ran Saturday at Elanora skatepark and on Saturday night it all wrapped up with Dive In at Beach Burrito Company in Coolangatta. Another great week to finish off the summer season on the Gold Coast. 2018 BOWLZILLA Gold Coast is going to be amazing, given what has been done so far.

Everyone at the event is grateful for her ongoing support.

 

“When you mix together a great local scene with a deep history, awesome skateparks, the most supportive council in Australia for skating, a community that encourages board sports because they believe in the benefits of it for the community as a whole rather than as a revenue stream, incredibly talented and friendly local skaters and sponsors that are involved because it is their community, then you get great things happening. We’re so fortunate to be able to be part of all of this. We will work hard every year to make BOWLZILLA Gold Coast the best it can be for all of them to show our appreciation.” Chad Ford – Director of BOWLZILLA and Miryoku Agency LLC.

 

BOWLZILLA Gold Coast is working to develop gatherings that use championship competitions to get everyone together to share and skate and grow and enjoy skating. With the TV show being distributed by IMG to a potential single view audience of over 640,000,000 viewers it is a great way for the world to see how talented our friends are and why they are worth supporting with great events, skateparks and sponsorship. BOWLZILLA Gold Coast is growing each year with increased benefit for the locals and all divisions will expand with the world’s top talent while encouraging and benefiting Australia’s best.

                                                                                        

CR McDonald said; “We have worked hard to support the growth of the exciting and healthy activity of skateboarding on the Gold Coast and it was fantastic that the Pines Skate bowl at Elanora, the first open full pipe in Australia, was chosen to hold BOWLZILLA Gold Coast event. There are increasing opportunities for skateboarding and the Gold Coast is poised to be the hub of it all, especially with skateboarding now recognised as an official Olympic Games sport for Tokyo 2020”.

 

BOWLZILLA Gold Coast would not be possible without the incredible support of its sponsors and supporters, a huge thank you to; Gold Coast City Council, Beach Burrito Company, Protec, Goliath Distribution, Fiik Skateboards, Gold Coast Skateboard Coaching, Yeah Girl, ISU, Darkside, Dickies, ASF, Redhead Or Dead Events and Miryoku Agency.

BOWLZILLA Wellington 2017 final results

Wellington City Council, International Skateboarder’s Union, Redhead or Dead Events, Skateboarding New Zealand and Miryoku Agency staged the New Zealand 2017 Park / Bowl Skateboarding Championships with BOWLZILLA Wellington in the Nation’s Capital.

 

SBNZ and ISU combined to establish the first ever New Zealand National Skateboarding Park / Bowl competition series. It all culminated on the weekend with BOWLZILLA Wellington. Wellington maintained its reputation for inconvenient weather for the entire weekend but luckily the Open and Masters divisions could be held and winners chosen.

 

The National Champions crowned were; Masters 40+; Leigh McKenzie, Open; Shaun Boucher. With Competition title going to Australian RJ Barbaro. R.J and Shaun were both successful in maintaining their titles from 2016. The weather made it impossible in the end to run the Women’s and 16 & Under divisions. The fast-developing talent in both divisions left everyone disappointed they did not get to see and support these amazing skaters. SBNZ will be integrating the 16 & Under and Women’s National Championship 2017 ranking into a future event this year.

There was NZ$15,000 in prize money distributed amongst the Open and Masters divisions. There was also$2000 worth of prizes, donated by; Fusion Surf / Skate, Vans and Dickies, for the 16 & Under and Women’s divisions, which were equally distributed amongst all the competitors after the wash out.

 

“Park / Bowl skating is clearly on the rise in New Zealand as was evidenced by the new talent entering our competitions over summer and the rise in skill level of the current skaters. The new series we established here at SBNZ is a real boost for the local scene and is bringing out more riders from near and far. We have interest from a lot of organisations to help us find ways of funding and supporting skateboarding now and well into the future. With our involvement in assisting communities develop and build better skateparks, working with promoters to establish competitions for local talent to develop and providing a community and voice for New Zealand skaters, the future is looking great. Having BOWLZILLA Wellington be the series final gives us a great chance to cap each year and we look forward to working with them for many years to come.” Jesse Peters – Director, SBNZ.

 

Even with the challenging weather BOWLZILLA Wellington was a Capital success with the festival hosting; ARTZILLA – art show, which was produced by Manky Chops, Fusion Surf / Skate – welcome barbecue, the competition and wrapping it up with the Dive In - party at San Fran with the SUB:BASS crew raising the roof for the final celebration.

 

"This year BOWLZILLA Wellington was a real game changer for us, we managed to triple the prize purse, saw an increase in international competitors, more friends and fans at the festival events, far more support from a wider group of sponsors and the growing talent of the skaters. It means we have a long future in Wellington. Being able to integrate this all in with SBNZ so we can crown the National Championships for New Zealand makes it that little bit extra special for us. Thank you one and all for everything you did to contribute to such an amazing but wet week.” Chad Ford – Director, BOWLZILLA Wellington.

 

Without the very generous support of the sponsors none of BOWLZILLA Wellington would be possible, so a huge thank you goes to; Wellington City Council, Skateboarding New Zealand, International Skateboarder’s Union, Coffee Supreme, Fusion Surf/Skate, Manual Magazine, Manky Chops, Powerhaus European Vehicle Workshop, San Fran, The Cambridge Hotel, the generous prizes from Dickies and Vans and the organisational skills of Redhead or Dead Events and Miryoku Agency. With ongoing support like this the opportunities for New Zealand skating are awesome.

 

We would like to acknowledge and thank all of the international attending skaters for their support of the event and skateboarding in New Zealand; Louis Newman - Australia (16 & Under), Sari Simpson - Australia (Women), Nic Couscouris - USA (Masters), Sean Goff - UK (Masters), Willy Lara – USA (Open), Patrick Ryan -  USA (Open). We'll get it next year!

 

Stay tuned for announcements about BOWLZILLA Wellington 2018.

BOWLZILLA Gold Coast 2017

BOWLZILLA Gold Coast is rolling into its second year and getting everyone together for the largest skate gathering by skaters for skaters in Australia.

 

BOWLZILLA Gold Coast is building on last year’s success to ensure that the future for Australian skating is fun and owned by skaters. Making fun times for everyone to celebrate all that makes skateboarding great with art, music and the competition.

 

BOWLZILLA Gold Coast has long term plans to grow every year to increase the fun potential for Australian skating by using a competition as the excuse to gather the widest range of generations of skaters for good times and great skating. BOWLZILLA Gold Coast invites all the skaters to come and be part and have a say in how they want their fun.

 

City of Gold Coast Councillor Daphne McDonald is proudly supporting the BOWLZILLA Gold Coast events which is running concurrently beside other great events on the Gold Coast. It all starts with the Tic Taco skate art exhibition at Beach Burrito Company Coolangatta on Thursday 16th March, Friday 17th the famous Gold Coast hospitality will be shared with all our well-travelled friends with a barbecue and good times, the competition itself is at Elanora skatepark on Saturday 18th March and Dive In; the official BOWLZILLA Gold Coast after party is on that night to wrap of the festivities. Yeah Girl will be helping curate and stoke everyone.

 

Park and transition skating is being talked about as the fastest growing discipline in skating globally. This is because of how fun it is and the proliferation of so many new and amazing skateparks around the world. The flow and speed of it is awesome to watch and in our opinion definitely the funnest thing on four wheels to do. Its uniqueness has shaped skateboarding since the 70s with that initial shockwave of the Dog Town and Z Boys. BOWLZILLA Gold Coast takes the freeform approach of our forefathers to build a platform that is less about the strict structure of competition and more about the opportunity of gathering all our friends from far and wide and encouraging their weird and amazing approaches.

 

BOWLZILLA Gold Coast is working to develop gatherings that use championship gatherings to get everyone together to share and skate and grow and enjoy skating. BOWLZILLA Gold Coast's top riders will be promoted globally through the BOWLZILLA media platform of social media and television to ensure they are internationally celebrated. With the TV show being distributed by IMG to over 640,000,000 homes, it is a great way for the world to see how talented our friends are and why they are worth supporting with great events, skateparks and sponsorship. BOWLZILLA Gold Coast is growing each year with increased benefit for the locals and all divisions will expand with the world’s top talent while encouraging and benefiting Australia’s best.

 

“Gold Coast City Council have proven themselves to be the greatest supporters of skating in Australia by providing the most skateparks per capita in the nation and encouraging the growth of the industry and lifestyle. We could not be in a better place to grow Australian skateboarding. The future is brighter because of them and we’re glad to be a part of it”. Chad Ford; BOWLZILLA director.

                                                                                        

CR McDonald said; “We have worked hard to support the growth of the exciting and healthy activity of skateboarding on the Gold Coast and it was fantastic that the Pines Skate bowl at Elanora, the first open full pipe in Australia, was chosen to hold the first BOWLZILLA Gold Coast event. There are increasing opportunities for skateboarding and the Gold Coast is poised to be the hub of it all, especially with skateboarding now recognised as an official Olympic Games sport for Tokyo 2020”.

BOWLZILLA Gold Coast 2017

BOWLZILLA Wellington 2017

Wellington City Council, International Skateboarder’s Union, Redhead or Dead Events, Skateboarding New Zealand and Miryoku Agency are building New Zealand skating with BOWLZILLA Wellington in the Nation’s Capital.

 

BOWLZILLA Wellington launched the first all-encompassing New Zealand National Park Skating Titles in 2016. The first National Champions crowned were; 16 & Under - Rico Henare, Women - Rhya Henare, Masters 40+ - Stephen Crump, Open - Shaun Boucher. With Competition title going to Australian RJ Barbarro.

 

There is excitement building for the second year which is on; 11th March at Waitangi Park, Wellington. The competition is on for the next National Champions with divisions for 16 & Under, Women, Masters 40+ and Pro/Am Open. BOWLZILLA Wellington is the rallying point to get everyone together to celebrate all the great parts of skateboard culture with; art shows, parties, music, gatherings and good times. There's a prize pool over NZ$15,000, making it the richest skate comp in New Zealand.

 

This year BOWLZILLA Wellington titles take on a more important role in the national landscape. With the formation of the new national governing body; Skateboarding New Zealand, greater interest coming from national government agencies, we are on the precipice of a big new future for skateboarding in New Zealand. BOWLZILLA Wellington is the official Skateboarding New Zealand National Park Skating Titles. All park and bowl competitions in New Zealand now lead to the finals in Wellington on 11th March 2017.

 

"SBNZ is proud to present the 2017 SBNZ National Bowl Series consisting of the upcoming 3 events; Mangawhai (Feb 5th), Christchurch (Feb 18th) and Wellington (March 11th) as the finals destination. Bowl Skating is growing from strength to strength in NZ. Our strategy is to provide a platform that celebrates and supports our top bowl skaters while over the next few years building a network of grassroots transition events that will provide pathways for those up and coming skateboarders from across New Zealand" Jesse Peters, Director – SKATEBOARDING NEW ZEALAND

 

None of this is possible without the incredible support of sponsors and groups such as; Wellington City Council, Skateboarding New Zealand, International Skateboarder’s Union, Coffee Supreme, Fusion Surf/Skate, Manual Magazine, Manky Chops, Powerhaus European Vehicle Workshop, San FRan and the organisational skills of Redhead or Dead Events and Miryoku Agency. They have all pooled together to build events that help nurture scenes, create opportunity for local skaters and create amazing moments to celebrate all that make New Zealand skateboarding great with art, music and the competitions.

 

“BOWLZILLA was formed and is 100% conceived and run by skaters. To be able to get so many companies and agencies willing to support such a unique organisation with our focus based solely on getting our friends together to have a good time doing what we love and promote their talents to the world is incredible and not something we take for granted. That is why you see so many more smiles at BOWLZILLA. The stoke level is high! You are all welcome to come and be part of it all in Wellington.” BOWLZILLA Director – Chad Ford.

 

BOWLZILLA started in Getxo, Spain, in September 2015 and has since built the first proper concrete bowl in Chile and run the first international professional competition in Chile, created a new format and platform for Australian skaters with BOWLZILLA Gold Coast and established the first National bowl skating titles in Wellington, New Zealand.

YEAH GIRL

Yeah Girl were massive supporters of our first year of BOWLZILLA Gold Coast. They even donated cash so there was prize money for the Women's division. They went above and beyond and on top of all of that, put on one of the best art gatherings we've been to in a long time.

We cannot thank them enough and hope that whatever we do is seen as thanks for their generosity.

Check the Yeah Girl 2016 recap and wrap up in this vid put together by Art-Work Agency. If you're still not sure what it's all about, want to see what you missed or you just want to relive the good times, check it out!

BOWLZILLA Gold Coast 2016 Highlights

Here it is, the highlights clip from our very first BOWLZILLA Gold Coast. We had skaters coming from; Brazil, USA, New Zealand and all around Australia. Women, 16 & Under, Masters 40+ and Open sections were all coordinated with ASF and their bowl series and also ISU and the international bowl series. We're already counting the days till next year. There is more filmed content coming in the form of a TV show so we will let you know when that is going to air around the world.

BOWLZILLA GOLD COAST IS GETTING BRASH!

The very first BOWLZILLA Gold Coast was on this weekend and was bigger and better than everyone had planned with entrants coming from; Brazil, USA, New Zealand and all around Australia. The competition had sections for; Women, 16 & Under, Masters 40+ and Open, and was coordinated to work with ASF and their bowl series and also ISU and the international bowl series and rankings. Big bold steps for a first outing that had thousands cheering.

 

Having so many riders turn up from far and wide really lifted everyone’s skating to a level many were surprised by. Gold Coast City Council and Councillor McDonald have done amazing things for skating on the Gold Coast and two weeks before the competition they installed lights which were somewhat responsible for the higher level of skating. The skaters were able to practice at night when it was a little cooler and the finals ran into the night with the lights. The lights definitely raised the energy levels – thank you!

 

Beach Burrito Company have just opened a new restaurant in Coolangatta and held the opening night party Thursday which combined with the skate centric Tic Taco art exhibition. Great food, amazing location and an awesome night to kick things off. The following night our friends had - Yeah Girl, which showcased women photographers documenting the steadily growing global female skate scene. This was held at Dust Temple and blew everyone away with the location, the photos, the subjects and the incredible job they did at throwing an amazing event like this. Yeah Girl were also incredibly generous and supported the prize money for the Women’s division of the competition as well.

 

The generous support and encouragement from Gold Coast City Council, Bleach* Festival, Beach Burrito Company, Australian Skateboarding Federation, International Skateboarder’s Union, Palm Beach Hotel, Goliath Skate Distribution, Corona and Redhead or Dead Events was what made the first BOWLZILLA Gold Coast possible. It cannot be overstated how much support they gave and how important it was to the success of the event.

 

The Masters divisions had lots of surprises. This year is going to grow into a very large beast of its own in the coming years. Robert Brasher is an enigma and a legend. He is the first Australian to do a frontside rock. He still has them as stylish and consistent at the age of 53 as he did 30 years ago. He has matured with age and his skating is possibly better now than it ever was. He is amazing. Joining him in the bowl was another slightly younger Masters legend of Australian skating: Brian Garland. Brian has always had a unique approach to his life, fashion and skating, and age has not wearied any of it. Brian blew everyone away with his switch skating from one end of the bowl through the pipe to the other and back. The Masters division really deserves its own release. Thank you all for showing what is still possible and congratulations to Nick Hepinstall for taking the heavily competitive win.

 

The Women’s division was one of the largest seen in years in Australia and is encouraging for what is to come. BOWLZILLA Gold Coast is really looking forward to working with the women to ensure they have their own voice and platform to grow their scene while being part of the larger skate community. Tenille Licari managed the win in a very talented field.

 

The 16 & Under division is shockingly rich in its field of talented skaters. Bowl skating is no longer the domain of the older skater. The Australian 16 & Under division is gaining worldwide notoriety and deservedly so. It is too hard to single out one individual for praise over the others which made the judges jobs so hard. Dylan Donnini was in first going into the final was pipped at the post by Bryce McKean. They make it look too easy except for the judging!

 

The open division had competitors from as young as 12 all the way up to 38. It was a wide field of incredible talent and varied approaches that spanned generations. The previous comments about the 16 & Under division show proof in the placings in the Open division. Keegan Palmer at 12 years old won and Luke Russell at 15 placed second. This was against a highly competitive international field with skaters like Willy Lara (USA) and Dan Kelcher (NZ). This is no small feat. With the Masters division starting at 40 this gives 28 years of future growth in the Open division for Keegan Palmer. We look forward to developing the BOWLZILLA events further each year just to see how far skaters like Keegan can go with their talent.

 

“The first year of an event is always difficult. The support given by Gold Coast City Council and the local skate community removed the difficulty for the first BOWLZILLA Gold Coast. The skaters that turned up from around the world and Australia to be part of this means there is nothing but bigger and better and more amazing things coming for BOWLZILLA Gold Coast. This really is the golden age of skating” Says Chad Ford; Director BOWLZILLA.

THANK YOU LEE RALPH!

R.J Barbarro Open Winner BOWLZILLA Wellington 2016

The skating has just wrapped on the first New Zealand National Bowl Skating Titles; BOWLZILLA Wellington. Everyone who could skate a bowl was welcome to come and participate with sections for; Women, 16 & Under, Masters 40+ and Open.

 

Everyone has been working hard on the first BOWLZILLA Wellington to encourage every bowl skater; women, kids, rippers and old timers to get in the bowl and have a go. Some amazing talent flew in from overseas to be part of it; Willy Lara (USA), Paul Kefalas (AUS) and R.J Barbarro (AUS). These guys inspired the locals and pushed them all to new levels.

 

Events like this are not possible without generous support from sponsors and partners and their incredible support; Wellington City Council, International Skateboarder's Union, Manual Magazine, Irrom Distribution, Spitfire, The Cambridge Hotel, Manky Chops, ALC Apparel, Fusion Surf / Skate, Redhead or Dead Events and countless volunteers and friends all contributed. Even with all of this, the biggest surprise was at the awards ceremony...

 

Lee Ralph is the most famous skateboarder New Zealand has ever produced. There is currently a documentary being made about him; Barefoot – The Lee Ralph Story, which is being talked about all around the world. Beyond Lee’s skating he is an accomplished Maori carver who has been in shows all around the world. Lee had a surprise for everyone at the competition and did not tell anyone. Literally, no one knew. Lee carved two Maori totems for 1st place for Open and Masters. What incredible gifts. Every single person associated with the event is so thankful for Lee’s generosity.

 

“Being able to be part of an event like BOWLZILLA Wellington which is about nurturing a scene and helping give it a platform for all to benefit not just from competing but the comradery and social interaction is the best feeling. Not money, ego or platitudes can top the feeling of skating with your oldest and newest friends and seeing them all enjoy themselves on such a big national platform.” Says Chad Ford; Director BOWLZILLA.

 

The first New Zealand National Bowl Champion is: Shaun Boucher, as the highest placed local in the Open division. We congratulate Shaun and hope to see him at events far and wide around the world.
