Keegan Palmer Wins Bowl-A-Rama in Bondi

Monday, February 19th, 2018

n6JVjj4Z_400x400Keegan Palmer is the first person to win the amateur contest at Bowl-A-Rama and then win the pro division in the next year. Taking the crown back for Australia (it has been 13 years since an Aussie won the contest), Keegan dominated the entire weekend placing first in qualifiers, first in semis and then taking the top title with a decisive first in the finals. Keegan used an array of back to back to back (and so on and so on) tricks to convince the judges that his lines were the most tech and diverse. 

Amazing work Keegan. Can’t wait to see you skate the rest of contest season including the upcoming Mano A Mano, Air + Style and Vans Park Series.
