Bondi Bowl-A-Rama 2017 Contest Photos
Another epic contest under the scorching sun at the 2017 Bowl-A-Rama contest in Bondi Beach, Sydney Australia. It was supposed to rain all weekend but the Skate Gods let the sun shine so the contest could go off and it did! Some of the gnarliest skateboarding went down and the stands were packed. It's a long way to the shop if you want a sausage roll, and when it was all said and done Jordyn Barratt took 1st place for the Girls' division, Keegan Palmer won the Juniors division, Steve Caballero got 1st in the Masters and Cory Juneau took home top honors in the Pros section. See ya Down Under next year! –Rhino
