Tuggeranong skatepark competition – Summer shredding


Freestyle Now recently hosted a skatepark competition in the nation’s capital in Canberra. The competition was part of the Tuggeranong festival and there was a good attendance during the day from many spectators.  The competition encompassed all aspects of skatepark activity with the scooter competition taking place in the morning, skateboard jam in the afternoon and the bmx competition finishing up the day in the late afternoon. It was super windy on the day but it did not seem to deter the competitors from hitting all the rad lines and throwing down some rad tricks. A big thank you must go out to Rebecca at communities at work for her support as well as Mutts scooters, 4 skateboard Co and Backbone bmx

Backbone bmx rider Mike Ross hitting it hard with a super whip. Mike rode like a possessed man, super dialed and clean on all tricks
