The new bastard Local Rats t-shirt is a tribute to two of the skaters that left their deepest mark at the bastard bowl: Jacopo Carozzi and Aref Koushesh.
The artwork, pencil designed by the italian father of skateboarding Max Bonassi, in full 80s style, is inspired by one the the best shots ever taken in the bowl by photographer Giuliano Berarducci. The original photo has been published on Thrasher Magazine, as a poster on SHARE Skateboarding and is available as a free gift in the shape of a postcard at the bastard store.
Last week we had the pleasure to host a terrific session in the bastard bowl. Chris Gregson and Mason Merlino with Joey Martin, sales manager at Unheard, shred all the well-know spots from Varazze to Milano. Obviously they swung by the bastard bowl for a night session with Jacopo Carozzi, Aref Koushesh and Ivan Federico.
Aref “Bobby” Koushesh is a strong and fast skater who land tricks with an extraordinary naturalness. He’s a consistent frequenter of the bastard bowl but he also likes the Parco Lambro and the DIY Creedence transitions, as you can see from this clip by Yeah.
