Hi Folks

First up a big thank you to the Australian Skateboard Slalom Community for your efforts in 2017.   

You ,the riders that travel thousands of kilometres and in some cases spent the same amount to do what we love.

To  the  organizers that put your hand up and run the comps .  The Track Marshals, the  volunteers,  everyone behind the scenes, you guys  keep the wheels rolling.

To ASRA, the Home of Australian Skate board Racing, and to  the Wisden Almanack of all things Skateboard statistics Bernard Griffiths,  for keeping tabs  of the fantastic Slalom year of 2017 .

To our major sponsors Like Zen Magnesium Products , Macs Water Ski World, Goliath, Globe, OCD for all your SWAG and Evan Miris & Martin Pavey for Trophies 

The  racing year was calculated by the 11 ASRA sanctioned events made up of 4 Races in NSW, 3 Races in the ACT, and  4 Races in VIC. (All Events can be viewed at ASRA Via the link at the bottom of the report)
