Mt. Panorama, Bathurst: Kevin Reimer continued his dominance over the competition, making it three wins out of three at Newtons Nation. In a blistering final he passed Douglas Dalua Silva while coming out of the Dipper, and took on the notorious Forest Elbow with the barest of airbrakes, skimming the bales and rocketing down Conrod Straight with too much exit speed for the rest to catch.
Micah Green passed Dalua in the final straight to take second and cap an…Click here for the full story
Alex Tongue took home $1,000 in today's Sector 9 Top 10 Shootout, beating track-record holder Kevin Reimer in an exciting day's racing. One of the favourites, Brazilian Douglas "Dalua" Silva almost missed the shootout after crashing heavily earlier in the day, but got up off the massage table only to post an uncharacteristically slow time.
Earlier Canadian Dillon Stephens qualified for tomorrow's finals in first place, beating out two-time winner Kevin Reimer, Alex…Click here for the full story

Boarder-X has been the dream of of just about every longboarder since the beginning of time. We have all seen it half attempted overseas on a number of occasions over the last decade. The problem with boarder-x is its not something you can half do, its one of those events that is either go big or go home. Well ASRA has decided to go big!!!
This all started many years ago with dreams of hug ramps, massive berms and giant humps. Its the event that…Click here for the full story
It should be simple - the fastest guy down the hill wins. And while a China Bomb has a certain charm, we've gone the extra mile to come up with a way to run Newtons 2013 so that everybody gets the maximum amount of runs and stoke, while making sure that the fastest guy down the hill still wins.
It's a brand new format that has never been used before at World Cup level. Read below for all the gory details.

There are many reasons why the IDF came about. For years we wanted a real and legitimately accountable structure, we wanted to end the one man show, we want to bring economies of scale to our sport and direct funding to our riders and our events. We wanted to raise the professionalism for our members and utilize the skills that permeate across our sport but that have been under utilized for years. Some of these things we have succeeded at…Click here for the full story

In a major piece of disappointing news, Wollongong City Council has closed Mt. Keira Rd for repairs due to concerns over public safety. The road is in danger of slipping off the edge of the mountain, and the cliff face above the road also needs to be stabilised in order to prevent rock falls. The required road works will not be completed in time for the 2013 Mt. Keira Challenge, and…Click here for the full story
Welcome to the new future of downhill skateboarding. Over the last five years ASRA has run both World Cup and World Championship downhill events under the banner of the IGSA. While we have had many successes in this relationship we have also had many struggles in the way we believe the international scene should be headed.
At this time and with the growth in our sport, ASRA needs to affiliate with a group that is more closely aligned with the democratic and…Click here for the full story

The morning started slowly. I jumped out of bed late as per usual. Cruised down the coast a little to pick up my 10 hay bales from where they had been stored for the past week.
I then proceeded back home to grab the rest of the supplies and most of all my skateboard.
As the day proceeded I was greeted with many of small speed bumps that would affect the way the day was to run. First of many...phone calls from grommets asking where everyone is and can they…Click here for the full story

My dad, PC has been skating for over 30 years and has given out so much stoke to the skate community, so my sister Astrid and I decided we needed to give that stoke and love for skateboarding all back to my dad PC for his 50th birthday. We organised 2 events for everyone to celebrate his birthday. A carpark race and a Hybrid Slalom and we got the raddest Aussie companies…Click here for the full story

I arrived at the race site early, hoping to get a few practice runs in before all the good skaters showed up. I quickly changed my mind after having worms flicked up into my face while but-boarding down the wet bitumen path, not to mention splashing through the steady stream of water that was flowing through the ditch at the bottom of the hill. The conditions definitely weren’t ideal. Despite the rain and the worms, people started flowing down…Click here for the full story
