JULY 28 - AUGUST 5, 2012 at Huntington Beach Pier

This one-of-a-kind 'Soul Bowl' is a wooden vert bowl that's perfect for both skate and BMX riders, challenging them to utilize the corners and hips of the bowl instead of simply going back and fourth like one might on a traditional half-pipe (vert ramp).

The Soul Bowl will features today's top action sports super stars in skateboarding and freestyle BMX. The format for skate will encompass a team format competition, with the top 4 finishers of  Young Guns skateboarding competition choosing 1 Young Gun, 2 Grand Masters, 2 Masters and 2 Women skaters to compete in various disciplines for team points.

The BMX format

Events also include Arrowhead's 'It's Better Up Here' contest, which features a high air contest for bike and best trick contest for skate with a cash prize of $1,000 each.

Photographers on the Huntington Beach Pier take pictures of the people below them on the sand.  Thousands of people walk along the boardwalks on the sand at the US Open of Surfing and Beach Games in Huntington Beach, California.
