King of the Krater skate competition 2018 | photos

The King of the Krater skate competition was held over the weekend, with competitors putting on a fantastic show for onlookers.

Ted Bickford, who helped organise the event said the weather really turned it on.

“It was a beautiful day for the event, and everyone there seemed to be enjoying themselves,” he said.

“The event has been going for around 10 years now, and although this year returned a smaller turnout than other years have, everyone had fun.”

With competitors taking to the sky to perform a dazzling array of tricks, kicks and flips, the Westpac Helicopter filled bellies with sausage sandwiches.

“The event was organised by the local YMCA this year, which mixed it up a bit,” Ted added.

“It’s always a good event for the kids, it gets everyone involved in a great community activity out in the sun.”
