Bowl skating is one of the funnest things to do and watch. It was the birth of modern skateboarding in the 1970s and introduced an approach to physical pursuit that had never been seen before. This lifestyle continues to grow far beyond the backyard pools and skateparks it originally grew out of.
Bowl skating and its influence launched the careers of legends like Tony Alva, Jay Adams, Dog Town, Steve Alba, Pat Ngoho, Suicidal Tendencies, Black Flag, Social Distortion, The Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Glen E. Friedman, Thrasher, Independent, The Bones Brigade, The Beastie Boys, Lance Mountain, Chris Miller and Tony Hawk.
The new guard of Alex Sorgente, Chris Russell, Grant Taylor, Lizzie Armanto, Danny Leon, Rune Glifberg, Omar Hassan, Bucky Lasek and Pedro Barros, would not be here without this heritage. BOWLZILLA™ acknowledges and celebrates this with plans to build on the past and write a bright and energetic future.
