South Hedland skatepark saw round 7 of the Freestyle Now Western Australian Skatepark Series take place. South Hedland skatepark is massive and one of the biggest in Western Australia. The scene in South Hedland is a strong one with a real great strong group of skatepark users all progressing well. It is good to see the progress over the last few years of some of the young shredders. On this trip to South Hedland squad members Shaun Jarvis, Mitch Harris and Kieran Ramsay flew there to host some skatepark coaching workshops as well as the skatepark competition. The scene there is small but rad and the skatepark coaching workshops really help to build the skills of the participants. When Freestyle Now hosts a skatepark competition 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. We would like to thank the Town of Port Hedland and our supporters, Colony bmxSacrifice scooters4 skateboard Co . Round 9 of the 2017 series takes place at the Rockingham skatepark on the 13th of May. Be sure to check our coming events page for all the latest information.

Clockwise from top left – Cody Broome has been progressing well over the past few years and it is good to see him still shredding 2nd in open scooters – Tory Burns is a machine, he is what we call a tri rider, smashing the rad on all 3, bmx, skateboard and scooter. Here is a tuck no hander on his bmx – Kane McPhee took out 1st in scooter intermediate and it’s great to see him back at it – Brock Viliamu was on holidays from N.S.W. and was over whelmed with his prizes from his fist place in intermediate skateboard.
