Ozzie Ausband of the Blue Tile Obsession blog provides us with a solid interview with Omar Hassan, offering up a little bit of then and now in the world of bowl riding, and all right before the 8th annual Pro-tec Pool Party. Also check out this quality video of Hassan doing what he does.

“… the Marseille contests were almost like a “get together and skate” type of thing. There was money on the line, beer, food and everyone really amped it up. Thrasher and Jake Phelps were involved as was Heineken. Needless to say, it went off! It started a whole trend for bowl riding. Riders respected each other and had fun. There was less pressure because there were no rules at Marseille. The format was loose. When you limit the riders to four or five runs, that’s only four or five lines. In actuality, it limits the level of skating because there are like fifty lines that could be done!”

For decades skateboarding has been a hugely popular pastime and culture on Native America Reservations. Ramp It Up is a traveling version of an exhibit exploring the ties between skateboarding and life as a Native American previously on display at the Smithsonian Institute. The exhibit has made its way to San Diego, California where it’ll kick off on April 28th.
Ramp It Up spotlights Native American skateboarders Augustin “Augie” Lerma (Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians) and his younger brother Armondo. Armondo, a seven year old who competes, and Augie, a ten year old who has earned corporate sponsorships, product contracts, and travels across the country to amateur competitions throughout the year, represent Native skateboarding in the United States.
Within the exhibit is everything skateboarding and Native America, from art objects to decks created by Native America artists and images to video footage. Check to see if and when the show will be at a city near you, HERE.
