BSWS HEAT 5 – Heywood

  • heywood vallance resize

It was a real hot, stinker of a day out at Heywood on Saturday. Everyone still ended up killing it regardless! It was great to see a solid amount of locals repping it hard and the community behind the event.

Glenelg Shires very own Josh Heley put on a big air demo that wowed the super sweaty Heywood crowd to come in a close 2nd to League vet Brad Saunders.

GRS HEAT 3 – LEONGATHA SKATE PARK

Leongatha skate park is an oldy but a goody. It makes for such an interesting comp. Even the top competitors have to spend time figuring out the nooks and crannies. Thanks to everyone that made it down in the hot heat! It was a rad day and the vibe everyone created made it even better.

BSWS HEAT 4 – Geelong

BSWS Geelong 1

The Park Geelong hosted heat  4 of the BSWS series in their beautiful indoor park. Without needing to concern ourselves with the weather we were already of to a good start.

The skate numbers were huge too say the least. There was a huge amount of travellers and an equal amount of locals down to rep their park. 12 and under shredder Jake McDonough continued his streak with another win. The 16 and unders ended up being a gnarly demo thanks to Simon Dunn and Johnno Halchenko.

The girls opens showed really positive numbers again. Getting bigger and bigger every year. Hayley Wilson is not showing any sign of slowing down. She destroyed every part of the park. So rad to see her dominate on the vert and street.

Last but not least was the male Opens. Jesse Abrahams and Brad Saunders killed the big section but just got edged out by local Paddy McEvoy. Paddy chilled around the course casually killing every part of the park with some laid back style.

GRS HEAT 2 – INVERLOCH SKATE PARK


GRS 2015

Sunday the 8th of February was the day that the YMCA team headed 140 kms southeast of Melbourne on a journey to the land of Inverloch. And what a land it was, cruisey coastal vibes, fresh sea air and a whole bunch of gnar at stop two of the Gippsland regional skate park series

Rumor has it that the skate park was constructed by prisoners, well damn those prisoners had a good imagination. No kidding there was a vert ramp that was not even 3 ft in height. It was way too impressive to see the scooter crew throw down backflip to fakies on such a steep and sketchy ramp.

For the sake of humanity these scooter kids need to stop before they rip a hole in the upholstery of space-time. With the spins and flips they do, I have no doubt they will tail whip up a black hole and swallow the entire solar system.  Both the young guns and the scooter veterans held  a strong presence and killed a skate park that I had presumed was otherwise unscaleable.

Skate division held the largest presence out of all the divisions, with a mad turn out from both local dudes and the one eyed VSL followers. Under 12’s & 16’s proved to both the judges and the Inverloch community that skateboarding youth is alive and thriving. Amelia Hitchcock smashed a ‘PHAT’ line in her run and put on a sweet demo for the crowd. It was great to see her developing an awesome style and a sweet bag of tricks.

The day ended with open males blasting tricks on the sketchy transition left right and center. From ‘Rad dad’ Craig Mitchell to ‘Tip Rat’ Siaosi Lay-Blake, open skate was full of crazy characters and downright hammers. Big thanks to Vortex skate shop for supporting the local dudes down at the park and thanks to Fybian and Trav from the Inverloch YMCA for making the day run smoothly.

GRS HEAT 1 – MORWELL SKATE PARK

Morwell Skate Park has taken a beating from the multiple competition visits it’s had over the past year, however nothing compared to the session last Sunday when the GRS took a visit down the countryside and knocked the parks socks off. GRS Heat 1 went off with a bang, and what a bang it was!

The day finished up with the skateboard division ripping the skate park a new one, with the Girls division pushing the heat and hyping up the crowd. Great to see the girls can prove that Morwell isn’t only a man’s world!

Massive shoutout to everyone that came down and participated or supported, Thanks for keeping the hype and getting young guys and girls involved in the skatepark community

BSWS HEAT 1 – TORQUAY SKATE PARK

Last years Barwon South Western Series was big.
Judging off the first round of the BSWS at Torquay last weekend 2015 is going to be even bigger.

With the success of twilight competitions last year we have now incorporated 3 into the 2015 season. Torquay was an example of how rad this point of difference can be. The session was heated for the whole afternoon and night with shredding across the board.

All age groups were well represented. Always stoked out to see so many girls out there killing the park. Thanks to everyone that made it down wether it was to ride the park or spectate.
