An annual, free skateboarding competition by Steve Newman, Marc Page and Loaded Sports is set to take place Sunday, Oct. 12 after being delayed by unfavourable weather during the past few weeks.

Skateboarders under the age of 18 who are interested must have their parents sign a permission form and helmets are mandatory. A first aid attendant is also set to be on scene.

The contest runs events in longest and highest ollie, best trick, best trick on the manual pad, best line challenge and a one-minute mini-ramp session.

A game of S.K.A.T.E. may also be run after the events are over.

The wealth of prizes will be donated by Loaded’s sponsors.
