In the intermediate class Ronan McCamish displayed his signature riding style, soaring to incredible heights and maintaining an impeccable flow throughout his runs. His consistency and skill captivated both judges and spectators alike and propelled him into the first place.

Both skated really well and we were stoked to have them in the competition and making memories of their first competition. The competition was a great success and attracted a diverse group of riders, including a strong showing from the rollerskate community. The scooter enthusiasts, BMX riders, and skateboarders also put on a great display of skill and technique, showcasing the incredible talent and dedication of the competitors. Spectators cheered on the riders throughout the event, creating a lively and energetic atmosphere that added to the excitement of the competition. The first full skatepark competition at the new City of Bayswater skatepark was a great showcase of the thriving skatepark culture in Western Australia, and a testament to the importance of providing safe and welcoming spaces for riders of all disciplines to come together and share their passion for skating. Big thanks to the City of Bayswater for supporting the competition, we look forward to seeing what the future holds for the skatepark community in the area. With this successful skatepark competition, we can expect more and more events like this to happen and support the local skate community. Be sure to check our coming events page for more information on future competitions and other events and you can also look back on all of the past competitions on the past competition page here.
