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:

NEXT YEARS 20th Anniversary warrants your attendance if you’ve ever gone to one. Let’s make it happen!
People around the globe are dreaming of stuff like this! A bowl in a backyard, free beer, free food, hot chicks, & a couple hundred friends to party with. It’s the fucking Dream of All Dreams! Thank god we live in America and we all discovered skateboarding, because it is truly worthy of what high praise we all give it.
Satuarday afternoon in HB! People around the globe are dreaming of stuff like this! A bowl in a backyard, free beer, free food, hot chicks, & a couple hundred friends to party with. It’s the fucking Dream of All Dreams! Thank god we live in America and we all discovered skateboarding, because it is truly worthy of what high praise we all give it.
big props to dennis lamb, the owner of the basic bowl, as this event is a testimony of fearless dedication to the art of pool skating and party throwing. imagine a couple hundred, heavily loaded and amply wrecked skateboard enthusiasts crammed into your backyard, house, front yard (why is backyard one word and front yard is two??) and street. your shit and your house, all exposed to a load of people who have a ‘fuck all’ attitude. if you’ve ever done it then you know. truth be told, the whole time we were there everyone seemed very respectful to the premises.
