Round 10 of the Freestyle Now Western Australian Skatepark Series took place at the High Wycombe skatepark. The turn out was great considering the amount of rain that took place the day before and the morning showers. Brooms and blowers were out in full force to get the park to dry up, and dry up it did. There were many competitors rolling out the rad and the spectators were really getting into it with lots of encouragement applause. At all of the Freestyle Now skatepark competitions there are three classes for competitors to enter, beginners (younger and still learning), intermediates (competitors with some good skills) and the open class (consistent and dials tricks) in the three disciplines scooter, skateboard and bmx. There is also a girls class to help encourage more girls to enter. We would like to thank the Shire of Kalamunda and our supporters, Local BMX, Colony bmx, Sacrifice scooters, Ethereal Clothing and 4 skateboard Co
The next skatepark competition will be Round 11 Freestyle Now Western Australian Skatepark Series held at the Margaret River skatepark on the 28th May, hope to see you there.
Ben Thomas grew up riding at High Wycombe and it shows, this massive handplant took him to a 1st place in scooter open.
Clockwise from top left – Thomas Dawson is a skater that is progressing well, seeing his progression over the past few years is great – At all Freestyle Now skatepark competition there is always a girls only class and at High Wycombe Mylee Leitch took the win with some great skateboarding – Brandon Dargie throws down a kickless over the box on his way to a deserving 1st place in intermediate scooters – Lewis Theunissen took 1st in intermediate bmx and this cross legged landing jump was just a highlight of his 2nd run.
