    Video by Luke Rigby for sba.org.au Due to freeway upgrades, Ballina’s been getting bypassed quite heavily in recent times. The iconic Big Prawn is dead, well fading in the sun. Heck, even the Macca’s has closed up shop. Ballina is transitioning to a quieter life without the constant passing of trucks and cars. It is with this adjustment that the Ballina Shire Council wanted to step down its involvement in organising the annual Fair Go skateboarding competition, and they subsequently approached Skateboarding Australia (SbA) to run the event. One thing was for sure: Ballina would be anything but bypassed this weekend. The freshly painted skatepark awoke to a tangerine sunrise void of clouds: perfect conditions for a skate-party. With the support of the awesome volunteer team, bump in was made light work… until it was time to sweep the bowl. Turned out some meddling detractor had sprayed the thing with Canola oil, making it ice-like in feel. After moments of panic, we got on the Googler and found a substance that would clean it off. Degreaser is the key if you’re ever faced with this hate-inspired situation. continued at http://skateboardingaustralia.org.au/Blog/fair-go-ballina
