Wagin Wool-o-Rama


Wagin is about 240kms south east from Perth. Each year for the past 40 years the Wagin Wool-o-Rama has taken place. It is now one of the biggest agricultural shows in Western Australia. The Shire of Wagin recently built its own skatepark within the showgrounds. Instead of getting a skatepark contractor to build the park they contracted the work out within the community. The savings were astronomical and the park has been built to perfection. Freestyle Now went down to the Wagin Wool-o-Rama last weekend to host a bmx, skateboard and scooter coaching workshop. On a very hot Friday afternoon and evening the locals were stoked to be ripping it up with the Freestyle Now squad. It is always great to help out new riders and get them learning new skills. On the Saturday it was equally as hot as the Freestyle Now squad hit up a series of show performance along with some coaching session in between. At the end of the day there were many happy people who either had seen some awesome bmx and skateboard riding or learnt some new skills. If you’re traveling down south stop into Wagin and shred the park, it’s well worth it.
