The crowd was huge, the weather beautiful and the skills on show sublime.
The new Hanging Rock Skate Park officially opened in style on Saturday.
More than 1000 people were estimated to have come and gone during the day, and they enjoyed skateboard, BMX and scooter competitions and displays, music pumping out from DJ Matt O’Brien’s desk and plenty to eat and drink.
Professionals from far and wide and Eurobodalla skaters and riders thrilled the crowd.
“It definitely went better than I thought it would,” Eurobodalla Shire Council youth development officer Josh Waterson said.
“People brought their friends and family, so it was an all-inclusive event.”
The skate park was revamped and extended by a professional skate park building crew after consultation with users and professional skateboarders. Now double its previous size, its main new feature is a big bowl, which was put to good use by daring skaters and riders on Saturday.
“The local talent will skyrocket now with this new facility,” Mr Waterson said.
The skate park had been in use for a week prior to Saturday, but Saturday marked its official presentation to the community.
Free buses picked up people from Narooma up to Hanging Rock for the event.
“There will be many more of this type of event in the future,” Mr Waterson said.
