The Bowl-A-Rama Wellington is a wrap. During more than 5 hours, skaters from everywhere in the world were able to follow the contest live on isTia.Tv thanks to the Bowl-A-Rama webcast. If you want to see again the whole Bowl-A-Rama Livestream, just click here.

The BOWL-A-RAMA™ 2013 series kicked off today in Wellington, New Zealand and is closely followed by Vans BOWL-A-RAMA™ Bondi (in Australia) beginning February 19 (that’s next week-end) where the world’s best skateboarders will be coming again together
A big congrats to Lizzie Armanto for finishing 12th out of 36 pros (all guys)
to battle it out for both titles (Pros and Masters).

Wellington’s Waitangi Park played host to Vans BOWL-A-RAMA™ Wellington, from February 13 – 17, 2013, the biggest week of skateboarding infused cultural festivities in New Zealand. Vans BOWL-A-RAMA Wellington attracted legendary international Pro and Master skateboarders who competed alongside some of New Zealand’s finest concrete Warriors.

2013 marked the sixth year of Vans BOWL-A-RAMA™ in Wellington, with the final held Saturday, February 16.
Kevin Kowalski Best Trick Winner
Crowds filling full bleachers under the hard sun witnessed the most impressive line up of skate talent battle it out for an overall $30,000 prize purse.

Vans BOWL-A-RAMA™ was born on Bondi Beach, Sydney (Australia) in 2005 and is the biggest professional concrete skateboard series in the world. With the addition of NYC in 2012, BOWL-A-RAMA now calls some of the world’s most iconic destinations home.

Both Vans BOWL-A-RAMA™ Wellington and Vans BOWL-A-RAMA™ Bondi are set amidst a week of festivities dedicated to celebrating art, music and true skateboard culture.

The Vans BOWL-A-RAMA 2013 series follows the debut of Vans BOWL-A-RAMA in NYC’s Hudson River Skatepark in 2012.

This year marks the first time in 3 years that Pedro Barros and Pat Ngoho have been edged out at the Waitangi pool!

For the pros, at mid time, after the qualifiers, the rankings were as follow: Felipe Foguninho (8), Sky Siljeg (7), Alex Sorgente (6), Pedro Barros (5), Kevin kowalski (4), Ben Hatchell (3), Josh Rodriquez (2) and Kalani David (1). Unfortunately for Kalani David (from Hawaii), he was unable to finish in the top three and Josh Rodriguez finished just before Pedro Barros who was the winner last year.

Huge thanks to Vans, Red Bull, Wellington Council, Manual Magazine, Spitfire Wheels, Manky Chops Gallery, Fusion Surf Skate, Vallet, Manky, YOLO, World Cup Skateboarding, and X Base for all their support
