We got this invite from the good folks over at vans to come down and skate the bowl on Monday. It is a cement bowl this year and it was inspired by the skatepark du prado bowl in Marseilles. I am personally very excited to go down and skate this bowl because this particular contest has been so fun over the past 6 or 7 years.
In the past, this bowl has been wooden and it was fine but this takes it to a whole new level. It should also be better to skate early in the morning because the wooden bowls seem to collect a lot of moisture because they were located so close to the ocean.
Today I went down and checked out the public bowl that they let everybody skate and it has not changed much which is great. There is a spine connected two bowls there and it is very small and very fun to skate!
