Keegan Palmer skated in the ABC contest this year for the first time as a pro. Coming off a Jr.’s win, Keegan competed against some of the best bowl skaters in Australia and the world. He qualified second in the first round and leading into the finals he was the top qualifier. The pro’s turned on the heat in the final and Keegan wound up getting fourth overall with a solid couple runs under his belt. As the top placing Australian, Keegan won the crown of Australian Bowl Riding Champ. Not bad for his first go.
Next up this week Keegan will be skating as a pro in the Vans Skate Series. Good luck KP!
Keegan Palmer entered his last Juniors contest at Bondi and came out on top this last weekend. Qualifying first in a field of some incredible bowl skaters, Keegan won the final on his last run. Falling on his first two runs in the final, Keegan threw up a hail mary and landed banger after banger doing a run a lot of the pros wouldn’t have gone after.
So stoked for Keegan. Next stop Vans Park Series where KP will be skating as a PRO!
Keegan Palmer has done it again! This last weekend Keegan competed in the Australian Bowl-riding Championships at Bar Beach Empire Skatepark in the 18 and under division. The best bowl riders in the world descended on Newcastle to compete. Keegan went head to head with kids up to 6 years older than he and he came out on top with the first place trophy.
In front of a crowd of thousands, Keegan showed the bowl riding world that he is the future of the sport and will be skating next against the biggest names at the Australian Open of Surfing Bowl contest.
