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.

Monday, March 14th, 2016

logo-bowlzillaThe very first ever Bowlzilla held on the Gold Coast was held this past weekend. In his first contest back since injuring his leg last summer, Keegan Palmer took the win in the open division. Being that it was held at his local spot, Keegan had an advantage in that he has been practicing lines there since he was small. Turning 13 this weekend as well added to the win to make it that much sweeter.

Congrats and happy birthday Keegan! Stoked to have you back in action.
