中国新年代表了传统意义上的冬去春来，此时此刻的澳洲却处在炎热的夏季之中。2月18日悉尼再度举办了 Bowl A Rama 滑板碗池大赛，这也是澳洲最大的滑板比赛。比赛地点位于悉尼最美的海滩之一 Bondi 的滑板场内，数千名观众前来观看，还有很多在附近享受阳光的游客驻足围观。

While Chinese New Year traditionally represents the begging of spring and the warmer weather in China, meanwhile Australia in the southern hemisphere is enjoying the hot days of summer. On Sunday February 18th Sydney hosted Bowlarama – one of the biggest skateboard competitions in Australia. The Bowlarama contest is in the deep cement skateboard bowl beside Australia’s most famous beach – Bondi Beach where thousands of Australians and other tourists including many Chinese travel to every day to experience the sun, sand, swimming and beautiful people strolling around.
Skateboarding has always been a popular sport in Australia and the government gives a lot of support and hence Australia has some of the best outdoor concrete skateboard parks in the world. Due to its warm weather, outdoor lifestyle and amazing skateboard parks, Australia is also a famous destination for pro skateboard tours and film making every year.
This year over 50 Australian and International skateborders traveled to Sydney to join the Bondi Beach Bowlarama contest. The contest was divided into five sections: juniors, ladies, masters, professionals and highest air.
