Kirky has taken part in a VSA-YMCA event volunteer workshop, and his ability and skill proves the value of  fostering grass roots comps.  What few know is that he runs these events out of his own pocket!  Without Champs like Kirky, the national event program will quickly become limited to one “street” event per state per year!

The Bowlriders events really do go a long way towards filling a massive vacuum in the national competition calendar, and prove once more that Victoria is the place to Skate!

Stay tuned for more great comps to be delivered by VSA partners and Volunteers

Viva Success!

Heat one of the 2014 South Eastern Series visited the Chelsea Skate Park on Saturday afternoon!

Over to the skate which saw a whopping 45 competitors battle it out in front of a sell-out crowd! The 12’s heat was jam packed with talent of the likes of Zac Callahan, Zepp Heyes, Kaeden Stevenson, Jack Duff & Julian Mansfield all battleing out! Zac Calahan walked away with the chocolates on this occasion but the series is already lookin like it could be a corka! Isaak Godfrey defended his 16’s title in Hawthorn style takin’ out 1st place whilst his kid sister Ava stole the show in the open gals. The Open heats were as entertaining as it gets and featured some of Melbourne’s finest including Matty Taylor, OCD’s Tommy Breaks, The MOSS crews own Billy Harrison & Bowlriders founder Daniel Kirk, but the Day belonged to Jimmy Moore whom absolutely tore the Chelsea half pipe to shreds knokin’ out a run to remember climaxed by his Blunt F/S Ollie back in on the extension! Check out some of Jimmy Moore’s highlights in an insty clip here.

We also send our best wishes to Kaeden Stevenson & Craig Mitchell whom both sustained injuries in the epic heat! We wish em both speedy recoveries so they can come & shred the series in the near future!

Thanks to Janet & her rad team from the Kingston Youth & Family Services & Devin Hartley & Darcy Hamer for there help on the day!   Check the series scorebards below.

The final frontier of the 2014 Barwon South Western Series visited The Park in Geelong.

Kostya Vallance completed a near perfecto series capped off with his securing of the 1st place medallion in the 12’s over little legend Jake McDonough!

A committed Jack Boreham whom competed in every single heat of the series took out the 16’s division just ahead of an inform Simon Dunn & the 3rd placed Johnno “Rail Smasher” Halchenko.

Jenna Iddon took out the Open Gals 1st place medallion & gets better & better as each heat go’s by! Liam Arnott was by far the stand out performer of the Grand Final heat knokin’ his second run out of the park with a big time Kicky down the 9 & a Feeble down the 9 rail to all but seal the heat win, but the Open belonged to young gun Jesse Abrahams whom pipped series front runner Hayden Morrow at the final hurdle.

Thanks to all of our amazing volunteers, staff, council partners, sponsors & ofcourse our amazing competitors whom entertain us week in week out for helping make the series a great success! Until next year adios amigos & stay rad! Check the final BSWS SKATE SCOREBOARD HERE!
