|How Pedro Barros Won Bowl-A-Rama NYC 2012|
Frontside's Bowl-A-Rama event – the world's premiere bowl skating competition – took over the impressive Pier 62 Skatepark in Hudson River Park on October 6 for the first time. But the event was less a straight-up skating event and more a full-on festival of skateboarding with some of the biggest names in the sport dropping in.
The senior's Master division really caught the imagination with skateboarding legends Lance Mountain and Steve Caballero going head-to-head early on. Unfortunately for 47-year-old Caballero, though, he just couldn't match Pasadena-born Mountain and had to settle for a still creditable second place, with Eddie Elguera finishing third.
In the Pro competition, Brazil's teen sensation and Red Bull skater Pedro Barros won a Bowl-A-Rama event for an amazing seventh time, while 14-year-old Alex Sorgente finished second and Ben Hatchell third.
The late great Andy Kessler was also honoured, with the Spirit of Kessler Award going to George Orton.
