Basic Bowl BBQ #19 – 2014

April 19th, 2014

We paid a visit to the longest ever running annual bowl contest in Huntington Beach CA. this weekend to partake of some Bowl Ripping, Suds flinging, punk rock infused, fun in the sun. This is pretty amazing to have lasted for 19 years. Some years have been better then others, and they are always different.

Anyone can take a crack at the bowl, which still stands popped out of the ground and over vert in the deep end. The divisions are from the Groms, to Sponsored, to Pros, and then some Masters. Throw in a punk band in between and turn on the switch. You end up with what Dave Duncan affectionately calls the ‘Shit Show‘.

Enjoy the pics of the party:
