Mansfield King of Street Series Skate Competition

Sunday, 15 October 2017 to Sunday, 15 October 2017
Description: Mansfield has been selected to host ‘The King of Street skateboarding competition’ on Sunday October 15th and will be the first regional town to take part in the series travelling around Australia. The Mansfield Shire Council FReeZA Team ADEPT and Shredability are working in partnership to deliver this awesome event, to date there have already been competitions in Darwin, Melbourne, Gold Coast and Sydney. World Champion Bowl skateboarder Renton Millar will be attending with his team from Shredability to commentate and judge this high profile event, with athletes expected to travel from Interstate to compete for National Ranking points. With skateboarding announced as an official event in the upcoming 2020 Olympics in Tokyo the interest not only in the sport but at competing level has increased dramatically. The prize money for the Open’s categories totals $2000 and there will be hundreds of dollars of product prizes up for grabs in the Junior categories. There will be Under 12 Boys, Under 16 Boys, Open Male and Open Female Categories. The format is much like the International Street League format with two skate runs where the best run counts. There is then a best trick element with a combination of points from best run and best trick to determine final points. Shredability are encouraging local riders from the Mansfield area to take part in this exciting event. It will be a great event for spectators and there will be a DJ, BBQ and drinks on offer, the event will runs from 11am until 5pm at the Mansfield Skate Park. “FReeZA is a Victorian Government initiative that supports young Victorians to get involved in their community by planning and running drug, smoke and alcohol-free music and cultural events for other young people.” For more details contact Jodie Bell on (03)5775 8559 or 0408 370 022
