Volcom presents: Battle At The Rat Bowl
 As the weather was trying to break down the very first Battle At The Rat Bowl, you propably thought about having a better time, staying on your couch. But no matter what you were doing that day, you definetly chose the wrong option if you didn’t join our contest in Cologne! The Volcom Battle At The Rat Bowl premiered at the Northbrigade Skatepark and it was ought to burn itself in everyones head. After a couple of breaks, the weathergod  flipped down the conditions to make sure we all got to see all the Slashers, Airs and Transfers that went down  by the end of the day.  Separated in the divisions kids+girls, masters (35 and over) and the Pro/Am the line up served some heavy hitters that made everyones jaw drop to the very ground.  After all the riders like Alex Hallford, Jaime Mateu and Tim Rebensdorf flew over the park, things were settled to get even better with the Holy Stokes Premiere in Cologne. Cold brews and the new Volcom skate movie were clearly enough to make the crowd lose their minds. Words hardly describe the madness so go and check out the whole photo story of the day. Many thanks again to Christian Pelz, Northbrigade e.V., SOLO Skateboard magazine, Vans, Skatedeluxe, and all the people that helped out to make the contest as great as it was! See you next year! Deutsch version :  Für den Fall, dass ihr vergangenes Wochenende etwas vermeintlich besseres zu tun hattet als im Regen im Skatepark herum zu lungern – habt ihr euch in jedem Fall für die falsche Option entschieden! Das Volcom „Battle At The Rat Bowl“ feierte Premiere in der Kölner Northbrigade und brannte sich in so einige Köpfe. Nach mehreren Contestunterbrechungen, spielte der Wettergott letzten Endes mit, sodass es ab 16:00 noch reichlich Slasher, FS Airs und 3m hohe Transfers hagelte! Die Divisions waren aufgeteilt in Girls+Kids, Masters (35+) und die Pro/Am Division – in der unter anderen Kaliber wie Jürgen Horrwarth, Jaime Mateu und Tim Rebensdorf am Start waren. Nach dem Contest wurde die gute Stimmung direkt in den Veedel Club verlegt, in dem der neueste Volcom Skatemovie „HOLY STOKES!“ prämierte. Da das Spektaktel im Rat Bowl, sowie die Feierei nur schwer in Worte zu fassen sind, solltet ihr euch lieber direkt das Video und das Photo Recap von Samstag reinziehen! Ein rießiges Dankeschön an der Stelle auch nochmal an Christian Pelz, Northbrigade e.V., SOLO Skateboard magazine, Vans, Skatedeluxe, sowie alle die geholfen haben das Wochenende zu so einem Erlebnis zu machen!
