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.
A new web series, co-produced by House of Hammers and RPRT starring Jim Greco, has launched on EpicTV.com. The series goes into the homes of top pro skaters and sees how they are living. Jim then spends the day with the skaters and skates their local spots.
The first episode is a look into how the man himself, Jim Greco, lives at the House of Hammers. You can view it HERE.
Shane Borland came out on top this weekend surfing in fun Santa Cruz waves in the 15 and under Open Jr.’s for NSSA. Shane, just 13, is making his mark as a force to be reckoned with in the under 15’s in the NSSA Central Coast Region.
Two sporter Shane immediately went for a skate after his win. Good on ya Shano!
It was an awesome weekend of skating at the best ever Damn Am down at Volcom HQ this weekend. Perhaps one of the hardest to judge, RPRT clients Curren Caples and Louie Lopez shared the top two spots out of about 200 kids. Curren dominated from his early golden ticket qualifying run and Louie killed the course with some insane tech. In the end, Curren got the top spot with Louie accepting a well deserved 2nd.
Awesome day for RPRT skate! Congrats LL and CC!!!!
