BOWL-A-RAMA and VANS announce major naming rights partnership to bring you VANS BOWL-A-RAMA 2011

I Skate, Therefore I Am -Home- Yes! isTia skateboard blog talks about skateboarders, skaters, vert, ramp, skateparks, pool, backyard pools, kidney pool, pink motel, supreme skateboard, copying, skateboarding photography, skate rock, concrete disciples, daily skate news, Vans, Venice skatepark, skate spots  and skateboard news. There are plenty of other skate websites that publish skateboard news faster than me, and better than me (Transworld, The Berrics, Thrasher, Slap magazine, skatedaily, crailtap, juice magazine, skate and annoy,…), so I won’t just give the skate news, I’ll also tell you what I think about it even if I’m wrong. Then you can conform and think like me too and impress your friends with your profound knowledge of the skateboarding industry. LOL

 For the fourth year running, the infamous Waitangi skate park Wellington, will play host to BOWL-A-RAMA™, not only the biggest concrete event in the Southern Hemisphere, but now the biggest week of festivities to hit Wellington! The 2011 event is rumored to be bringing with it the most legendary skateboarders of our time including: Pedro Barros, Omar Hassan, Sky Sijeg, Josh Borden, Rune Glifberg, Sergie Ventura, Pat Ngoho, Otavio Neto, Jackson Pilz, Mike Bancroft, Juergen Horwarth, Benji Galloway, Chris Senn and Colin Provost.

News of the new five year deal with the World Cup Skateboarding and the inflated prize purse figures ensures that BOWL-A-RAMA™ 2011 is set to be bigger than previous years. This year there is $30, 000 in the prize purse up for grabs!

“BOWL-A-RAMA™ has never been bigger.” Comments Chad Ford, Director of BOWL-A-RAMA™. “The event has been steadily growing each year, which is a catalyst of the amount of industry support we are receiving. The week of umbrella events leading up to the comp on Saturday really gives all fans and families a chance to get involved in a really inviting culture.” He adds.

BOWL-A-RAMA™ 2011 promises to be bigger and better than ever and will again bring with it the biggest line up of international skate talent yet seen, as well as a week of festivities celebrating the culture of skate. February 9th marks the kick off of this year’s events launching with infamous Oakley Love and Guts Art Show at Manky Chops gallery, in lead up to the Saturday 12th of which all skaters come together to battle it out in the Waitangii Bowl for the 2011 title.
