It’s the end of the year and we wanna end it off with one of our favourite contests. This time around there will be an amateur and pro section.
The format is good ol’ KOTP format – you’ll earn points through our various challenges to determine your place in the standings, with top cut in each section earning prizes.

Registration starts at 0900 and ends at 1030. Sorry for you if you’re not registered by 1030.
Contest starts at 1100.

1st challenge: Good ol’ jam on the top segment of the park.
Ams go first then pros. You’ll be divided into heats of 5 with 10 minutes to strut your stuff. This is only for the top half of the park, so no 8stair, double-set, mini-ramp or such.

2nd challenge: Jam on the bottom half.
Same format as previous jam, but now on the bottom half. Now is when you ignore the pyramid, ledge etc and show us your skills on the 8, drop, double-set, big quarters or whatever touches the bottom half of the park.

3rd challenge: Highest Hippie Jump.
Skaters will take turns to prove to us that they have the highest hippy jump. We’ll start off low, working our way up to weave out the winner.

4th/Final challenge: Keg Jump.
Good ol’ fashioned keg jump.

Each skater will receive a score out of 10 for the each jam from each judge.
The clear winner(s) of the hippie jump and keg jump will receive one total score of 10 for each, with the scores trickling down as skaters place lower in these challenges.

The higher you place, the more lucrative your prize.

Prizegiving will be between 1800 – 1900.
