What do you get when you take away handrails, stairs, ledges and you add one pool – to a kid fifteen and under?

The future of skateboarding and the promise of some serious rippers.

Dennis Lamb and the infamous Basic Bowl were the host of the next generation of roundwall warriors skating it out for the big win. Leading the pack of the 7 and under division, was Timmy Lopez with coping assassination from all sides. Wiithin heel-biting distance, Curren Caples and Alexi Macou were rolling around the pool with no fear. In this battle, the level of skill of these youngsters did not take precedence over the self set goal of just making it around the cement wonderland with hopes of grinds and a good line.

The 8-11 division turned up the heat as the sun passed high noon and the bowl was primed and ready to handle the attacks. Local ripper Devon Lamb, unleashed a variety of lines, slaying the deathbox, frontside and backside – grinding with style. Chase Webb poured himself into every turn and pounded himself into every grind. Jake Reuter and Taylor Smith drew lines all over the roundwall to take second and third place in their division.

The 12-14 division hosted rippers Collin Provost, Chris Graham, David Robarge and Texas bred Chaz Pedina who could easily enter the mens’ Basic Bowl Contest and give everyone a run for their money. Chaz assaulted every run with head high transfers from the 6ft shallow to the 10 ft over vert deep, stand up 50-50s to early grab in and nollie tail grabs in the deep, to top it off. If this kid is a sign of the future, than Texas is the reason that street skating is DEAD!

The highlights of the day included Chris Graham from Punk Rock Skateboards rolling in off the roof and pulling it on the second try, Devon Lamb’s deathbox grinds, Collin Provost’s blasting airs, Matty Lemond’s kickflips over the roll-in, Chaz Pineda’s ‘Craig Johnson-esque’ layback airs, Chase Webb’s stoked face during every grind… and the all around enthusiasm the kids had for riding pools.
In a perfect world, history would repeat itself and the future of skateboarding would involve a more all around skater who takes advantages of all facets of terrain and skateboarding style. The best part about kids is – if you build it – they will try and skate it.

Minor threats.
