Volcom Wild In The Parks 09/10 has kicked off in Perth over the weekend.
With perfect weather and as usual a great Perth crowd, the season has
Gotten off to a great start.
The day started with the 15 and under division and these kids were firing!
It came down to a fight between Raoul Poncin, John Hardless
and Callum Mccauley. It was a tight finish but in the end there could only
Be one winner and it was Raoul who took it out, John who came in second
And Callum in 3rd. Well done to all the other finalist, the kids rocked!
After the 15 and under came the girls, there were not many girls
Confident enough to get out there on the day, but the girls that did
Ripped and ripped hard. The final result was T-J Cross in 3rd, Sophie
Williams in 2nd and Sara Howarth in 1st!!
Then came the 16 and over. We had to hold out on starting this one
As the some of the guys expected to competer had not showed up yet.
This is what happens when you try run a comp for people 18 years and
Over before midday. The night before had got them sleepy.
But once it all started the guys showed why it was worth waiting for them.
So many talented skaters in Perth and every year I love coming over
For this comp.
On the day it turned out to be Ryan Van Nellertyn in 3rd,
Rowan (Frodo) Williamson in 2nd and Harry Clark in 1st. All these guys
Killed it, but with harry’s all round skills he was hard to beat. With tricks
All over the park he gave up a good mixture of tech and gnarly skating
Which the judges could not deny.
A big thanks to all the kids and families that came down to supports the event,
All the judges, Brandon on the mic, Maxted for shooting, Rothy for all his help...You all killed it,
and couldn’t have done it without you all.
On top of that a big shout out to all the sponsors, this years prize packs are
Looking better than ever and that’s all due to you support, so thank you
