Balga skatepark festival – scooter skateboard bmx skatepark competition – January 2022


Freestyle Now hosted the first skatepark competition at the new Balga skatepark. It was a well attended event despite the 40c heat. Competitors were told to stay hydrated and apply sunscreen, a 30 minute maximum warm up and two sixty second runs meant they were not out in the heat for long. Sure it was a hot day but nothing can stop the radness from being rolled out. There was a great turn out of competitors in all the divisions. The structure of the skatepark competition was to have the scooter competition first, announce the results and present prizes, then the skateboard competition and finally the BMX competition. This format worked really well over the course of the day. There was so many prizes at this competition that all competitors took home a prize and in some cases two or three prizes. A big thank you goes to the City of Stirling for all their support on this competition
