Red Bull Skate at Lost Bowl:
On Saturday, October 24th, 2015 Red Bull Skateboarding teamed up with Creature & Santa Cruz Skateboards/Indy Trucks/OJ Wheels/Bronson Speed Co. to throw a 21-man invite-only backyard bowl bash at Pat Lowery’s legendary Richmond, Virginia Lost Bowl.
Made up of some of the top amateurs, pros and East Coast up-and-comers, the day consisted of seven 7-minute 3-man heats followed by a 29-minute everyone-in chaos session set to Slayer’s Reign in Blood (inspired by Jim’s Ramp Jam) and three best tricks.

In a rarely seen contest decision the inmates were put in charge of the asylum and the 21 skaters were asked to judge themselves and pick the top 3 winners. The results, as voted on by the skaters in the contest are as follows:
1st place: Cody Chapman (Santa Cruz Skateboards)
2nd place: Chris Russell (Creature Skateboards)
3rd place: Kevin Kowalski (LifeBlood Skateboards)
4th place: John Gardner (Creature Skateboards)
