RUNE GLIFBERG TALLIES THIRD PODIUM SPOT IN THREE COUNTRIES IN ONE WEEK AT OAKLEY BOWL-A-RAMA™2011
Thousands watched as 60 of the world’s best local and international skaters battled it out for top honors at the 2011 Oakley BOWL-A-RAMA at Wellington’s Waitangi Park in New Zealand.
Oakley’s own Rune Glifberg was on fire, but defending champ Pedro Barros and Sky Siljeg were on a rampage of their own. After a long day of battle, Rune took third and pocketed the $2000 prize, tallying his third podium in three different countries in one week! Pedro topped the podium and claimed the $4800 prize purse. Sky took second and the $2500 prize.
Oakley LOVE + GUTS co-founder Pat Ngoho also came out victorious taking the Masters first place prize of $2000.
The event series, including the sister event VANS BOWL-A-RAMA™ held at Bondi Beach in Sydney, has recently gone through some exciting developments including the World Cup of Skate signing a five year deal, major growth in prize purses and major sponsor alignments. “We are stoked to be able to work with the best in the industry to deliver a strong event every year,” comments Chad Ford, BOWL-A-RAMA™ Director. “The event keeps growing every year and brings with it the biggest skaters in the world. With the support of partners such as OAKLEY and World Cup of Skate, we are definitely on our way to becoming one of the most iconic skate events in history,” he adds.
