Van Doren Invitational


The Van Doren Invitational in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada went down July 10-11, 2015.  This international bowlriders contest featured some of the best riders in the world destroying the legendary Hastings Bowl. The Best Trick contest had history made when Dalton Dern made the transfer over the gap from the shallow bowl into the deep bowl--the first skater to do so.  

 

The Van Doren Invitational Skate and BMX Invitational will be held July 27-August 2 in Huntington Beach, California, USA as
part of the Vans U.S. Open of Surfing and the California edition includes a ladies’ bowl contest at the Marseille Skatepark inspired bowl
created by California Rampworks.
