Skateboarding is thriving in the port city of Marseille, France
Take a trip through skateboarding’s history as Red Bull TV’s Back to the Bowl uncovers the legend of Marseille. The world renowned bowl just a few meters from the Mediterranean sea. Designed by architect J.P. Collinet in 1991, it continues to serve the area as one of the premier skate destinations.
