2014 NWS GRAND FINAL – RIVERSLIDE

The 2014 North Western Series came to a trilling conclusion on Saturday afternoon at the world famous Riverslide Skate Park in sunny Melbourne.

In the 12’s Baily “Action” Jackson held off another 5 worthy challenges all scoring above 100 points to win the 12’s whilst in 16’s Lucas Calwell made it two series places straight winning his first NWS series after getting 2nd in the LMHS!

In the lady’s it was yet another dominant display from the Mayor of Mansfield Hayley Wilson whom board slided the rail (see snap below)

Little ripper Bradley Saunders stole the show with his epic B/S Smith down the big rail whilst Venice Beach local Deandre Sanders switch B/S 360 his way to victory. Big ups to the series champ rad dad Craig Mitchell.

NWS HEAT 4 – HOPPERS CROSSING SKATE PARK

Hoppers Crossing skate park had its face lifted a few years ago. This included the removal of the old vert ramp and the addition of a flowing bowl. A good trade in my eyes! Watching both disciplines dial in some serious fast flowing lines around the bowl’s curves made for a great comp.

Deveruax Stone-Kelly and Jake McDonough battled it out in the skate 12 and under division. Super tight scoring saw Deveruax juste edge Jake out. 16 and Unders was also won by another Stone-Kelly but this time it was Manajhay. Killing it in the big bowl and then hitting the street section with tre flips and 5-0’s. It was great to see Simon Dunn back down at an NWS. He came in second but put on an absolute demo in the bowl all day. Word on the street is that he has been skating some vert. No surprise this kid can kill it in any form of skating.

Josh Hodge continued his win streak in the skate opens. The dude is on a rampage. Destroying every park he shows up at but doing it all with smile on his face. Love the attitude! Brad Saunders was hot on his heels however. Brad threw out possibly the most dipped BS smith I have ever witnessed. Still so young as well!

NWS HEAT 3 – GREENSBOROUGH SKATE PARK

Greensborough Skatepark has a real uniqueness to it. It offers all the usual treats – rails, ledges, euros and quarters but in a quirky layout. As shown on Saturday, in heat 3 of the North Western Series, this weirdness leaves the advantage in the hands of those skate park users with the ability to think outside the square. The creative skaters and BMX’ers shine at Greensy park. Hitting up the nooks and crannies others may not have even noticed on first glance. Linking in lines a lot of competitors thought were not even possible.

The 16 and unders skate division was dominated by the creative minds of hesh king- Jack Duff and tech wizard- Lucas Calwell. Lucas edged out Jack for the win in the end. I am looking forward to see how these two rippers hit up the rest of the parks in the remaining series.

Jake McDonough killed it in the 12 and unders with style well beyond his years but was followed closely by two up and comers – Bailey Jackson and Luke Ascenzo. The leaderboard looks like it will be a tight battle to the end! Gnar lords Josh Hodge and Ash Cochrane continued their killing spree in the VSL comps by taking home first and second.
