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.
Another Soul Bowl Contest
I guess people in the crowd were led to believe the Monkey and Tony Hawk were gonna make an appearance, and all they got in return was slammed by mass marketing.
Mervyn’s Beach Bash
Omar Hassan must have bionics in him. He skated and placed in every event the whole weekend and was still pushing it to the end in the best trick…
“People started to get buzzed, and continued to push the level even further. Everyone was stoked! People were shaking hands, talking shit, and generally having a great time. No one wanted the night to end.”
