A big shout out to AFENDS Team Rider Tim Williams who took down 2nd place at the Belcopalooza 2013 and a $3K cash prize. Tim was just behind winner Tommy Fynn who took away the $5K.
It was pretty amazing seeing people rock up to Belconnen Skatepark for their first time. For those who have an average-sized park at home, I feel the experience was akin to someone who grocery shops at a corner store suddenly being given the keys to the world’s largest mall. Not only is there an excess of space, but there is also a whole lot of choice for skate consumption.
It is not unusual for a Belco first-timer to be crippled upon arrival: doubled up due to obstacle-based anxiety. Unlike cricket hero Don Bradman, Canberra has only just now clocked its first century. The capital was so delighted that it flowed us the opportunity to hold a contest at this sheer behemoth of a skatepark. It really was a monumental notch in the Australian skateboarding tree. Thank you everyone who made it a reality. - (Morgan Campbell)
