Round 13 of the Freestyle Now Western Australian Skatepark Series took place at the South Hedland skatepark. The day was hot and so was the competition. It was a great turn out with over 40 competitors all wanting to roll out the rad. The South Hedland skatepark is one of the biggest in the southern hemisphere and the fun that can be had is limitless. At all of the Freestyle Now skatepark competitions there were two runs for the competitors with round 1 in the street plaza section and round 2 in the open combie bowl. 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 girl’s class to help encourage more girls to enter. The progression of the skatepark users in Port Hedland is growing at a rapid rate but with such an awesome skatepark it’s easy to see why. We would like to thank all the skatepark users for rolling out the rad at the competition and we would also like to thank the Town of Port Hedland as well as our supporters, Colony bmx, Sacrifice scooters and the 4 skateboard Co.
Anthony Dann has progressed so much over the last year. This front scooter helped him take out the 2nd place in scooters open.
Clockwise from top left – Tory Burns is now back in South Hedland and has got another bike and ripping it up at the skatepark, first place in bmx intermediates – Kyal Randazzo made the 45 minute bus trip from Port Hedland to South Hedland with his friend Kohi Poharama, a trip that takes 10 minutes in a car, to compete in the skatepark competition. First place in skateboard intermediates and a new skate deck from the 4 skateboard company – Jasmin Kilmartin showed great courage and entered the competition. a few laps around the open bowl and a few fly out and she took out a first place in the girls only class. Getting more girls into the activities would be great – Levi Ashby was consistent with his tricks and skills and took out 1st place in the scooter intermediate class.
