It Begins: General Pants BOWL-A-RAMA Bondi 2016

The world's best skaters descend on Bondi Beach

General Pants BOWL-A-RAMA Bondi 2016 is now in full swing… You can feel the energy and excitement in the air. Friday was all about media commitments, getting in those last practice runs, and enjoying all that Sydney has to offer. BOARDWORLD caught up with reigning champions, Tony Hawk and Bucky Lasek, to ask them what makes ‪BOWL-A-RAMA‬ tick. Get down to ‪‎Bondi‬ this weekend... it's going to be insane!

Legendary skater Tony Hawk made a brief but solid appearance in the practice session, and he hucked this classic madonna in true Hawk style.

Pedro Barros arrived late in the day and threw down this backside tailslide in his very first run. Absolute machine!

Tom Schaar blew everyone away with this monstrous backside ollie. No grab required!
