“A bowl on the beach in summer in Basque Country with one of the best line ups ever for a comp. I can’t believe I get to be a part of this. I know I should be working but I’ll be fanning out pretty much the whole time. BOWL-A-RAMA is not just about the comp, it is about the gathering of all of our friends for a week celebrating what united us in the first place – skateboarding. Volcom and Getxo are letting us through one massive party. Come and enjoy it with us.” Chad Ford.
