“… 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!”
After a voting based qualifier five US pros were selected to enter the 2012 Street League series. Check out the footage from Jimmy Carlin, Austyn Gillette, Tom Asta, Matt Miller, and Ishod Wair who were impressive enough to be added to the lineup.
