SK8ers made a Rukkus in Mullumbimby on Sunday for the annual Byron Youth Service competition where skateboard riders of all ages, vied for prizes, glory and time in the bowl.
Rukkus is an annual skate competition which is always a highly anticipated event for local young skaters.
This year the BYS ran the comp in the winter as there are not so many activities for young people in the winter months and it paid off.
‘It was a fantastic day’, said organiser Lotte Boer. ‘We were so lucky with the weather, no rain at all.
‘We had a fantastic turn out with many local families coming for the day as well as competitors from as far as Yamba and the Gold coast.’
Dozens of competitors to put plank to curve at the Mullum skate park in the 2015 event and there were about 150 people who came to enjoy watching the talented skaters registered for the competition.
This year’s winners were Oscar Southerden in the under 8s, Tane Pritchett in the under 12s, Sam Windherst in the under 16s, Joey Cormack in the Opens and Keona Pringault in the girls division.
Funded by the Byron Shire Council and run by the Byron Youth Service this is a fantastic event on the Mullum.
The Byron Youth Service will run the Suffo Skate Comp on Sunday October 4 so start practicing those tricks!
