$200 Best Trick Contest

There’s big money at stake, so skaters of all ages and skill levels have been taking to the bowls, ramps, ledges and pyramids at Justin Leavitt Memorial Skatepark.

They practice on skateboards, bikes, and razor scooters, preparing for the $200 Best Trick contest this Saturday at 2:30 within the Ian Deutch Memorial Park at 1600 E. Honeysuckle Street.

Some wear helmets, more wear knee protection, all demonstrate impressive safety and courtesy, yielding to the traffic flow throughout this amazing activity center.

Some of the older kids actively coach attentive younger athletes. All work hard and efficiently. It’s inspiring to watch a skater’s eyes focus on the objective, concentrate intensely, and then execute a swooping maneuver and landing. Some catch air, then “carve” and “grind slide.”

The kickflips with the boards and the gravity defying twists and spins of the bikes are stunning. Witness the fun in action, and see who wins the competition. Free event, all ages.
