Skate shot to mark milestone

Skateboarders are being encouraged to head to Dunsborough skate park this weekend to mark a milestone for the local scene.

Soggybones Dunsborough is turning five years old and to celebrate the occasion, skater and co-owner Luke Ward is teaming up with drone photographer Lachlan Micale to create a special skateboard deck graphic.

Ward is urging local skaters and Soggybones customers to take part in the aerial photo, to be taken at the skate park at 4pm on Sunday.

The photo will then be printed and designed onto a number of skateboard decks.

Ward said the creation of the limited edition thank-you deck was not just a celebration of the anniversary, but also a recognition of the region’s skate culture and community.

“The skate culture is so positive in this region and the skating community have been the foundation behind this store,” he said.

“The graphics on the boards are really what sells them, so we thought it’d be cool to get a photo of the community.”

Participants in the photo will receive 20 per cent off the board price on the opening night of the new Soggybones Dunsborough Store on Wednesday, November 1.
