Kongwak Race Report

Words by Sean Meaney

Kongwak was a sick event put on by some great riders. Cam and Louis really know how to throw an event together, the traffic was very well controlled and the hill was absolutely amazing; nice and steep sweepers leading into a banked hairpin and then running out into a right handed turn before crossing the finish. Speeds where up around 60kph+ and there were plenty of guys who sorely regretted not bringing leathers, or in Ben's case, elbow…

Another Rad Week in Radelaide

For those of you who don't know, Adelaide is home to some of the raddest hills in Australia. The city itself is small, flat and quiet, but on the outskirts of the city it's not hard to find some gnarly, fast, windy hills that are now attracting downhill skateboarders from all over the country.



On the weekend of the 1st of October 2010, SAGRA (South Australian Gravity Racing Association) hosted… Click here for the full story

Leeso Reigns Over the Hill

On a day when the rain never stopped, Corey Leeson pipped Steve Daddow by less than the length of a wheel to take out the 2010 Master of the Hill. Phill Champion took out the luge with an undefeated series of convincing wins, while Merrick Wildash took out the Junior Skateboard in equally convincing fashion. Rounding out the day was Cooper Kruize who won the Grom division in his first ever race.

No Bastardry, Plenty of Beatings



The cream of Australia's downhill skateboard and luge riders gathered in the tropical heat of Townsville for a weekend of thrashing themselves on the steep and winding Mt Stuart road, located on the edge of town.

For the most part there was no competition; this was a charity freeride to raise money for prostate cancer; the "bastard" that has to be beaten.



And beatings were the order of the weekend as all riders took some hits on a road that challenged everybody.… Click here for the full story

Falls Creek, A Downhill Heaven...



On Saturday, February the 21st ASRA President Haggy Strom and myself got up before dawn to embark on a reconnoissance mission to the victorian alps to scope out and skate some of the best mountain roads this country has to offer. After months of talking about what roads were possible to skate we finally decided its time to go down and actually check it all out.

We flew down to Albury, hired a car and began the drive down towards Mt Beauty and… Click here for the full story

The Hill Mastered



Jackson Shapiera edged out Dennis Westphal in a thrilling final to become downhill skateboarding's Master of the Hill. Dave Kelly took out the Luge, while in Classic Luge Adam Sparks had to come from behind to overtake Brad Sterritt.



The skateboarding final was a classic. Jackson and Dennis raced the entire course side-by-side, neither able to pull in front of the other. The racer with the inside line on the corner would pull marginally ahead, only to lose the… Click here for the full story
