Tony Hawk to land in Bondi as
GENERAL PANTS BOWL-A-RAMA returns
Australasia’s largest and most exciting skate event is back, bigger than ever, from 18th – 19th February, 2017. The largest professional bowl event in the Southern Hemisphere, GENERAL PANTS BOWL-A-RAMA™ announces it will return to the Bondi Skate Park – over two massive days – with 3 sessions on Saturday and a further 3 on the Sunday.
Next year’s event will see the return of skateboarding legend Tony ‘The Birdman’ Hawk who praised last year’s event: “I love the Aussie skate scene – it’s always been really strong, even when skateboarding wasn’t as popular. The pool is a great medium – they’re doing proper huge vert tricks and really textured tricks.”
Joining Hawk will be an all-star line-up featuring some of the world’s best known skateboarders who are ready to put it all on the line and serve up an event filled with blood, sweat and cheers.
GENERAL PANTS BOWL-A-RAMA™ not only delivers some of the best skateboarding in Australasia, but world over. The picturesque beachside location will play host to the epic event, promising two full days of big-air entertainment, music, stalls and more.
The success of BOWL-A-RAMA has inspired Destination NSW to support the event and sign on for a further three years.
Minister for Trade, Tourism and Major Events and Minister for Sport, Stuart Ayres said: “BOWL-A-RAMA is a fantastic local event, with thousands of spectators heading to Bondi Beach each year to see the world’s best skaters at one of the world’s most spectacular skate park locations.
