BOWLZILLA Shakes the Gold Coast

BOWLZILLA Gold Coast is rolling into its second year and getting everyone together for the largest gathering by skaters for skaters in Australia.

BOWLZILLA Gold Coast is building on last year’s success to ensure that the future for Australian skating is fun and owned by skaters. Creating opportunities for local skaters to celebrate all that makes skateboarding great with art, music and the competitions.

The event has long term plans to grow every year to increase the fun potential for Australian skating by using a competition as the excuse to gather the widest range of generations of skaters for good times and great skating.

“Gold Coast City Council have proven themselves to be the greatest supporters of skating in Australia by providing the most skate parks per capita in the nation and encouraging the growth of the industry and lifestyle,” said Chad Ford, BOWLZILLA director.

“We could not be in a better place to grow Australian skateboarding. The future is brighter because of them and we’re glad to be a part of it”.

City of Gold Coast Councillor Daphne McDonald is proudly supporting the BOWLZILLA Gold Coast events which includes the competition itself is at Elanora skate park on Saturday 18 March.

Cr Daphne McDonald said they have worked hard to support the growth of the exciting and healthy activity of skateboarding on the Gold Coast.

“It is fantastic that the Pines Skate bowl at Elanora, the first open full pipe in Australia, was chosen to hold the first BOWLZILLA Gold Coast event,” she said.

“There are increasing opportunities for skateboarding and the Gold Coast is poised to be the hub of it all, especially with skateboarding now recognised as an official Olympic Games sport for Tokyo 2020”.
