unnamed (4)Some of the world’s best skateboarders will visit Bondi Beach in Sydney for GENERAL PANTS BOWL-A-RAMA from February 18 – 19 2017. BOWL-A-RAMA was born on Bondi Beach in 2005 and is now the biggest professional concrete series in the World.
Skateboarding’s most successful, influential and legendary skater, Tony Hawk, will visit Sydney to defend his Masters Champion title against the likes of Pat Ngoho, Renton Millar, Pedro Barros, Alex Sorgente and Bucky Lasek.

 
Skateboarding superstar Tony Hawk said, “Skating has always had a strong-hold in Australia and the fans really get behind everything when the pros come from all over the world. The energy in Bondi is like no other. The crowd appreciates surf-skate culture, and they are always excited to see the pros in town. The skaters feed off that and go bigger every year. It’s like lightning in a bottle”.

 
It’s not just Bondi that has great skate action. Dozens of skate-parks with steep bowls, ramps and rails are popping up all around NSW.Professional vertical skateboarder, Renton Millar said, “At the moment NSW is going through an unprecedented boom period with skateparks. You’ve got timeless existing standouts like Bondi, Five Dock and Bar Beach, but getting added to the mix are amazing state of the art new ones at Mona Vale, Bateau Bay, Carnes Hill and Coffs Harbour.”

 
Here are just some of the places to skate in NSW:
Mona Vale Skate Park, Mona Vale
A predominantly street style park with a mini bowl and a refurbished historic vert ramp, Mona Vale Skate Park is a new addition to the Northern Beaches of Sydney skate scene and is ideal for all skill levels.

 
Empire Park Skate Park, Bar Beach
The ‘gold bowl’ at Empire Park Skate Park overlooks the surf breaks at Bar Beach. This brilliant world-class facility has recently been restored and is already a favourite destination of visiting pro skaters.

 
According to Tony Hawk, skating at Empire Park is not only a challenge, but a memorable experience. He said, “I’d never ridden that bowl prior to 2015. It’s a lot bigger than most concrete bowls I’ve ridden in the past. I’m a big fan of transitions, and I really enjoyed trying it out.”
