Bowl-A-Rama

Skate legends Steve Caballero & Christian Hosoi have a poolside laugh.

Pier 62 skate park was host to the Vans Bowl-A-Rama this past weekend. The Pro division was amazingly fast and technical. The crowd was also treated to the Masters division. These are the guys that laid the innovative groundwork for today’s generation. It was great to see them still ripping. Check out some of the photographs I was able to snap from their final heat.
