Video: Hurley Australian Bowlriding Championships

Hurley Australian Bowlriding Championships
The Hurley Australian Bowl-riding Championships went down over the weekend, with Renton Millar edging out Jack Fardell to take the Pro Final, Mick Mulhall topping the Masters, Poppy Olsen winning the Girls Division and Ben Kay taking out the Dew Am Jam.Here's the wrap-up and results.

Music By Red Ink:

After a triumphant day of battle at one of the country’s most progressive skateparks, Bar Beach-Empire Park Skate Park in Newcastle, Victoria’s Renton Millar skates away as the first ever Pro winner of The inaugural Hurley Australian Bowl-Riding Championships (ABC™), whilst Mik Mulhall took out the Masters title.

A strong lineup of competitors made it hard for the World Cup Skateboarding judges to rank each of the heats and identify the lucky winner of each division, their share of the prize pool of $20,000 in cash and prizes.

The competition offered four divisions; Mtn Dew Am Jam U18’s, Pro/Am, Masters (over 40’s) and the Female Open Division in the first ever of its kind, a true ‘nationals’ skateboarding competition.

A truly spectacular moment of the competition included watching 11-year old Poppy Olsen take out the females division.

One of the main features of the Hurley ABC™ is that it offered the opportunity for Australian rippers to compete at Vans Bowl-A-Rama™ Bondi, the biggest professional skateboarding competition in the Southern Hemisphere, by giving away a series of wild cards.

Mik Mulhall, Adam Luxford, Luke Foster, Tony Hallam and John Gray who skated in the Masters & Renton Millar, Jack Fardell, Jackson Pilz, Matt Kitai and Zeke Mathews from the Pro division are now guaranteed a spot at Vans Bowl-A-Rama™ Bondi to skate amongst the biggest professional bowl-riders in the world, including international heavyweights such as Steve Caballero.
