2014 Mayoral Skateboarding Competition

The call is out for the region’s top skateboarders to carve it up at the 2014 Mayoral Skateboarding Competition at Crows Nest. Join in the action and demonstrations at the Crow’s Nest skate park in Recreation Terrace on Saturday, June 14.

Hosted by Toowoomba Regional Council’s Youth Connect and Skateboarding Australia, the day includes a packed program from 10am-3pm. A best tricks competition is a highlight on the program with all contests open to skateboarders from 12 to 25. Prizes and giveaways will be on offer with a street art workshop, a barbecue and drinks available. Nominate on the day and test your skill against the region’s best.
