The opening of the Fremantle Esplanade Skatepark at the Esplanade Youth Plaza earlier this month was one of the most monumental moments that Australian skateboarding has ever seen. Not only did the moment mark the coming of age of one of if not our best facility, it also saw one of the biggest SbA Hubs Clinics ever held (nearly 300 signed up) along with a best trick comp and one of the biggest demos ever held by locals in the state of WA. The park needs no introduction really as it has been all over the social media platforms over the past month or so. Here is the footage. Plan your trip now! Thanks to The City of Fremantle, The Lotteries Commission, Australian Sports Commission, Momentum Skate Shop and The Department of Sport and Recreation (WA) and anyone who was involved in making this a reality.
The demo featured Harry Clark, Sean Parker, James Ahern, Alex Campbell, Tristan Cook, Morgan Campbell, Gabe Kovesi, Luca Prestini, Scott Hetherington, Gustav Eden, Justin Lloyd, Rin Hutcheson, Aaron Nannup and Yanek Blaszczyk.
