More than 100 skaters, scooters and riders had a rolling good time at the Australind Skatepark on July 13.

The Harvey Shire Council hosted a fun-filled coaching and jam session for BMX, scooters and skateboards at the park.

The event was part of the council’s Community Safety and Crime Prevention Plan, to provide events for families, children and youth that promote safe choices.

Stunt performance and coaching group Freestyle Now coordinated coaching sessions for all different skill levels.

They also set up a variety of challenges to cater for all abilities in order to focus on inclusiveness in the sport.

Competitions and giveaways on the day meant some up-and-coming stars won new wheels, such as Harvey residents Tyler Sudintas and Jake Bagetta, who each won new scooters.

The main message from Freestyle now co-founder Shaun Jarvis was about being respectful for each other and the skatepark.
