Willetton skatepark competition – Round 14 Freestyle Now Western Australian Skatepark Series


Round 14 of the Freestyle Now Western Australian Skatepark Series went down at the Willetton Skatepark on the 11th of October. It was a crazy day that’s for sure, with 55 competitors and rain clouds abundant. First up was the scooter beginner class. As soon as all 29 competitors had finished the rain clouds we stoked and in appreciation they let out all of their rain. Then there was the false hope of everything drying up, on several occasions. After about 2 hours the rain had just eased off to a spit and then stopped all together. The park dried up and it was game on. The scooter advanced class was a treat to watch with Billy Watts having the massive home ground advantage and going higher and faster than anyone in the history of ever. Current F.N.W.A.S.S. point’s leader Jiordan Giacoppo took out the second place with his large tech skills and Josh Sharpe was smashing out the feeble grind combos on the ledge like it was nothing for the 3rd place.
It was good to see a good lot of young skaters there all keen to shred the gnar and patient to wait long enough for the park to dry up. Josh Coates and JJ Turno were both smashing to out in the advanced class.
BMX had a good turnout. Young 14 year old Matt Adkins will be a force to reckon with as he gets older and stronger. Great tech skills and able to stomp out some good tricks, helped him with the 1st place. Freestyle Now living legend Jason Parker enter his first skatepark competition in over 12 years. With his flavor of riding and all round goodness he took out the 2nd place. Third place went to Brad McAuliffe who rode like a champion.
All in all the competition was great. A big thanks to the City of Canning for their continual support for skatepark competitions and to our supporters Stowaway distribution, Sacrifice scooters and 4 skateboard Co for all the rad prizes.
