Australia to host extreme downhill skateboarding championship – Boarder X Series

Australia is playing host to the world’s first national competition for extreme downhill skateboarding.

The Be the Influence Boarder X Series will see up to 32 riders from across the globe compete for the title of World Champion.

The series will take place at four big events around Australia, kicking off in Sydney on 26 October 2013 at Centennial Park and hurtling through Newcastle, Melbourne and Brisbane in November.

The competition combines the best of ramp, street and skateboard skills, with riders racing against the clock over a series of ramps, berms, humps and jumps.

Be the Influence – Tackling Binge Drinking encourages young Australian’s to have a more responsible attitude towards alcohol. The amazing riders competing couldn’t be doing what they are doing out there if they were up all night drinking. It is an important message to get across to young people and the skate world.

The Be the Influence Boarder X Series is FREE to attend with live music and DJs and is an alcohol free event.
