Round 15 of the Freestyle Now Western Australian Skatepark Series took place at the Boyanup skatepark. It has been a few years since Freestyle Now has done a competition at Boyanup. It is a destination for many travelers doing a south west skatepark trip. It was a very cold afternoon / night and those who were brave enough to venture out into the cold were rewarded with much radness. A few competitors traveled down from Perth to compete, it’s good to see they are following the series around. There were also a few competitors from other south west towns who also came to compete. Seeing familiar faces is always good as well as new faces who were there to roll out the rad. 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. A big thank you to all the competitors who rolled out the rad at the Boyanup skatepark competition. We would like to thank the Shire of Capel as well as our supporters, Colony bmx, Sacrifice scooters and 4 skateboard Co
Round 17 takes place at Golden Bay skatepark on the 22nd October. Be sure to check our coming events page for all the latest information.
Clockwise from top left – Jakob Wells is progressing well since moving up from the intermediate class earlier this year and is a contender to take out the year end title in the 2016 series – Ben Gately is awesome to watch ride in larger transitions and Boyanup was his type of park, nice and high airs always – Kody Law took out the 1st place in scooter intermediates and is looking at moving up to the open class for 2017 – it was a treat to see Ben Dittmer skate at Boyanup, good flow and much fun to watch.
