Labour Day long weekend saw WA Skate Ramps take to the beach for a jam packed weekend of surfing, skating and fun in the sun!
Labour Day long weekend saw us take to the beach for a jam packed weekend of surfing, skating and fun in the sun as Surfing Western Australia hosted the metro beaches biggest & most prestigious surf event the Corsaire Aviation King of The Point presented by City of Stirling.
The surfing heats started early on Saturday, seeing some of WA’s best surfers take to the point at Trigg Beach to battle it out in the less the than ideal conditions, unfortunately typical of the Perth summer.
But not all the action was out in the water! We were lucky enough to get right amongst it with a killer mini ramp set up right on the beach overlooking all the action, and action there was! We had an absolute ball spending the weekend with such a fun crew of rad skaters, surfers and spectators of all ages.
As the surfing continued throughout the 2 day event, we were stoked to see a truckload of skaters both young and old thrashing it out on the mini ramp, with some making the trip for the weekend from as far as Geraldton. Awesome times were had and it was great to meet and skate with a heap of new faces as well as plenty of familiar ones too.
As the seasoned skaters tore it up, we encouraged the beginners to get involved and give it a go. Before we knew it, they were pumping the mini ramp with confidence and even had a few first time drop-ins, how cool is that! Great to see a bunch of kids who arrived as complete newbie’s and walked away as skateboarders! Yeeeew!!!
A massive congratulations to Jano Belo who took home the crown as the 2018 king of the point! Thanks to everyone that came down and a super big shout out to all the crew form Surfing Western Australia! Thanks again for having us and for hosting such a great event!
