The Countdown Is On For Bowl-a-Rama™ Wellington, NZ 2014

The Countdown Is On For Bowl-a-Rama™ Wellington, NZ 2014 

BOWL-A-RAMA™ Wellington will be kicking off the BOWL-A-RAMA™ 2014 skateboard series. In true BOWL-A-RAMA™ form the contest will showcase the worlds’ best Pro and Masters bowl skaters coming together from January 29th till Sunday February 2nd 2014.

Known as the premier skate series in the Southern Hemisphere, BOWL-A-RAMA™ Wellington has burst into the international limelight with the 2014 event strengthening its reputation as the biggest skateboarding event in New Zealand.

Vans BOWL-A-RAMA™ Wellington 2013 saw Josh Rodriquez taking out the title of Pro winner with the previous 3 time champion and World Champion - Pedro Barros in 2nd and Alex Sorgente in 3rd place. Fans saw Steve Caballero and his lifetime of skill take out the Masters title with Sergie Ventura in 2nd and Pat Ngoho coming in at 3rd place in the Masters division.

BOWL-A-RAMA™ Wellington 2014 moves into its seventh year, with an overloaded week dedicated to celebrating art, music and true skateboard culture with the “Festival of the Skateboard”.  
“BOWL-A-RAMA Wellington has always been a personal quest for us. We’ve always seen it as a way of growing the global community of skateboarding. We bring the world’s best to Wellington and provide opportunities for the locals to step up onto the world stage where normally they would not have that chance. Having people like Rune Glifberg, Omar Hassan, Colin Provost, Chris Senn, Sergie Ventura, Lance Mountain, Steve Caballero and Pat Ngoho come to New Zealand has been amazing. It is seeing the locals like James McInnes, Mike Bancroft, Dan Kelcher, Bowman Hansen, Mike Spittlehouse, Andrew Morrison and Lee Ralph all have their chance to shine on the international stage that has been the real highlight though. Now with the live webcast and TV we’re just making that stage even bigger. Don’t put it off any longer, come to Wellington and see what all the fuss is about. You can thank us later.” Says Frontside Events Director Chad Ford.

BOWL-A-RAMA™ was born on Bondi Beach – Sydney, Australia in 2005 and is the biggest professional concrete series in the World. With Wellington, Bondi, New York and the addition of Getxo, Spain, BOWL-A-RAMA can now call some of the most iconic destinations in the world home.

Howard Davis: Review - 'I, Daniel Blake' - Ken Loach's Bleak Masterpiece

'I, Daniel Blake' is a bleak masterpiece, a chilling and moving story of two people striking up an unlikely friendship under extremely adverse circumstances. It is both a polemical indictment of a faceless benefits bureaucracy that strips claimants of their humanity by reducing them to mere numbers, and a celebration of the decency and compassion of ordinary people who look out for one another when the state has abandoned them.
