SUFFOLK Park was alive and shedding last weekend with skaters of all ages coming together to share their passion and to rip it up.

Hosted by Byron Youth Service (BYS) in collaboration with Byron Skateboard school, the winners received fantastic prizes donated by Sponsors Truckstop, Skull Candy, Drop Dead and G Spot Raw.

A free BBQ was provided for the hungry groms. With food donated by the generous local businesses such as Baz n Shaz, Suffolk Park Bakery, SPAR Suffolk Park and Green Garage in Byron, they were able to skate all day.

Last year locals fought to keep the grounds in the community "To think the space was almost sold for development”, says event co-ordinator Berri "It's good to see this park so well utilized”

Winners :

Under 8s- 1. Oscar Southerden, 2. Jake Thatcher, 3. Freddy Hazeltan.

Under 12s- 1. Josh Godward, 2. Ash Wilcomes, 3. Tane Mason.

Under 16s- 1. Zane Hetherington, 2. Angus Fersuson, 3. Nakula Boag.
