Bob Burnquist

Skate

Bob Burnquist starting skating in Sao Paulo, Brazil, at the age of 11, before the sport consumed the country and the world. By 14, he had turned pro. In 1995 he showed up, entered and won the Slam City Jam in 1995 and has been wowing crowds with his skating ever since.

    Up until the beginning of Skate Streetstyle, Dew Tour Toyota City Championships in San Francisco hadn’t been treating Ryan Sheckler well.

On his first of four runs, with the Bay Bridge as a backdrop, Sheckler set the standard very high – too high, in fact, with a score of 90.25 – and the rest of the skaters were left chasing.

    BOWL-A-RAMA has come a long way. Back in 2005 in Bondi, Australia, it was a small gathering of talented skaters who were putting on a demo. In order to turn the gathering into something more, someone made a run by an ATM and pulled out what would be the event’s cash prize. The event was born. This Thursday, October 6, after numerous stops over the years in Australia and New Zealand, BOWL-A-RAMA will make its first appearance in New York City, taking place at the Chelsea Pier Bowl. Thousands of spectators are expected to come out to see the finest bowl skaters from around the world fight for a chunk of the $50,000 purse.
