Oakville hosts skateboard contest at Kinoak Indoor Skateboard Park

Presented in partnership with Hustler Board Shop and Flat Spot, Oakville invites skateboard fans to cheer on their favourite competitors on Saturday, August 21, 2010 from noon to 5 p.m. at the Kinoak Indoor Skateboard Park located at 363 Warminster Drive.

The Kinoak Skateboard Contest will feature friendly competition for all ages in the Game of S.K.A.T.E., best trick on three mystery spots, and the mini ramp throw down on state-of-the-art equipment including quarter pipes, grind boxes and launch ramps.

“Admission for spectators is free, so gather your friends and family and come check out the action,” said Nina de Vaal, director of Recreation and Culture for the Town of Oakville. “It’s clear to us that skateboarding is beyond a fad and its popularity is growing within our youth community. Come show your support.”

CSA approved helmets must be worn at all times in the skateboard park. Kneepads, elbow pads and other forms of protection, such as shin pads, gloves and wrist guards are strongly recommended. All participants are required to complete a waiver. Participants under 18 years must have the waiver signed by a parent or guardian.

The contest entry fee is $10 per participant.  For more information or to download the registration and waiver form, visit the skateboard park web page or call 905-338-4191.

The Kinoak Indoor Skateboard Park is open daily Monday to Saturday until September 4, 2010. To evaluate the success of this pilot project, users are encouraged to provide feedback by emailing recandculture@oakville.ca
