BoarderX is the opening event of the Wollongong Blender Festival. Blender is an art, music and technology festival and part of the revitalisation of Wollongong.
This will be a big audience event. We are inspecting 5000 spectators on the opening night. The atmosphere will be amazing, and a chance for us to showcase the positive aspects of skateboarding.
This is the best pop up skatepark money can buy. Register and you can skate it for two days. There will be sessions, best trick comps and racing.
You must have a skateboard helmet to race. It does not have to be a fullface downhill helmet, a regular skateboard helmet is ok. Other safety equipment is at the riders discretion. This is non contact racing, however you will be skating in extreme close proximity to other skaters. There will be accidents, please be prepared to crash. We recommend slide gloves and knee pads.
We apologise for the late notice - registration and details of the event should have been announced a long time ago. However it is better late than never. We don't get many opportunities to build the BoarderX course, hopefully everyone can see the positive aspects of racing it again, and not the negative aspects of the late announcement.
Why do riders have to pay and volunteer?
Early registration is $20, to register on the day of the event will be $30. If the event gets cancelled due to rain, we will be refunding prepayments.
Volunteer to help NOW!
If you are a parent or friend of a rider or just want to be part of our communty event, please use the above link to volunteer. We have a job for everyone, no experience required, just enthusiasm.
THE ONLY WAY this event can happen is if we get volunteers. There is a lot of work in pulling ramps out and getting parts into position. The more people we have, the faster it goes up and the more time you will have skating it. It is not all about having building experience and using tools, there is a small job for everyone.
