It's no secret that Brazilian bikinis dominate Bondi Beach in the summer but for the second time in as many years, Brazilians can also lay claim to the Vans BOWL-A-RAMA Bondi after 17-year-old Pedro Barros claimed the pro skate event in emphatic style.
Just a week after taking down the likes of Bob Burnquist, Bucky Lasek and Rune Glifberg to claim the first ever Australian Open of Surfing Beach Bowl title, the teenage Brazilian was at it again and with a series fast and powerful front-side 540s and massive lien airs, blew his rivals out of the water. Well, technically they were already out of the water given the pool bowl, with tiles and all, was already devoid of water.
Nonetheless, despite some serious competition from 39-year-old veteran Bucky Lasek, Gilfberg, Jack Fardell and a bunch of other internationals in the tight bowl, Pedro got the votes from the judging panel to remain undefeated in 2012 and claim his second BOWL-A-RAMA title - much to the delight of the raucous crowd.

Meanwhile, 42-year-old MMA fighter and veteran Canadian skater Rob "Sluggo" Boyce claimed best trick honours for the second time in as many weeks, pulling off only the third competition backflip in pro history. The only way to describe it, is gnarly.
