This past weekend saw the SbA wolf pack pull into Sydney for the NSW qualifier of the Nike SbA Am Series. The location was Waterloo Skatepark, which is no doubt one of Australia’s finest purpose built concrete street scapes. Our guest judges consisted of Glenn Wignall and Sam Giles and our guest MC was Cameron Sparkes. On the BBQ duties was 99 Degrees’ Aaron Jenkin. Everything was in place for a smooth runnin’ event, that is aside from the weather. During the early AM set up we felt that the fierce clouds above could hold some grief for us. And sure they did. Before the juniors even started it bucketed ferociously for an hour or so and for a while Waterloo became Waterlog. My printer actually copped at least a bucket full of it’s own as we temporarily paused the comp due to wet terrain. Whilst the rain pelted down, the MC’s and Cuzz entertained and delved into some skate trivia whilst Jenk-os cooked for the soggy masses. Eventually as the rain turned to drizzle everyone pitched in grabbed brooms, squigies and mops and got drying. Before we knew it was bone dry and we were able to commence the Juniors.
