Skaters impress on the concrete

Busselton Dunsborough Times

Hundreds of spectators descended on Busselton skatepark at the weekend to watch some of Australia’s best battle it out in the King of the Concrete WA Championships of Bowl Skateboarding.

Competitors went head to head for $5000 in prize money as well as Australian Skateboarding Federation rankings points as the crowd cheered them on, despite the inclement weather.

Organiser Renton Millar said he was stoked with the outcome.

“It’s such a great event, and a location we have been stoked to run the event here for the past three years,” he said. “All the skaters love coming out from the East Coast, and the locals are really starting to step up”.

First in the open event was Zepp Heyes from Victoria, while Sonny Cooke won the WA championship title.

Winning the women’s category was Isi Campbell from Denmark, Vycharn Wicks won the masters, Tommo Baker the under-16s and Rollins Moore the under-12s.

The event was supported by the City of Busselton and comes ahead of the sport’s debut in the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games.
