2012 Bowlarama nearly didn’t happen--a couple nights before the final, some salty scallywags poured oil into the bowl, rendering the surface dangerously slippery. Fortunately it was cleaned up and given a fresh coat of paint, just in time for the big day. Stevie Caballero was celebrating 20 years of the Half Cab and earned a well deserved victory in the Master’s division. The traditional Love & Guts art show was well attended two nights prior and Nic Boserio took out the Australian Skater of the Year award at the Beach Road Hotel. All in all, a busy weekend for skateboarding in Sydney, Australia. Here are some highlights from the final hours of the competition. Enjoy.
