Felixstowe: Daredevils are all set for resort skate competition

EXTREME sports lovers from across the county are today being invited to show off their best tricks and turns at a skatepark competition.

Youngsters from the resort are organising this year’s Felixstowe Skatepark Jam competition in Cavendish Park and it is hoped that plenty of people will turn up to show their support.

The event will see people on skateboards, BMXs and scooters take part in the competition which will be running throughout the day on August 26.

Kurtis Morling, 18, of Pond Close, is one of the organisers of the event and he is hoping to see lots of people showing off their skills.

He said: “It’s going to be a fun day.

“It will be good, especially for the little ones. They will get excited and hopefully they will bring their families over.”

The event is open to everyone in the community and there will be something for everyone to enjoy.

As well as the extreme sports that will be on show, there are set to be activities for youngsters and there will also be a barbecue.

Mr Morling added: “Hopefully it will all go to plan and hopefully we will have one next year as well.”

Money that is raised at some of the stalls will also be donated to the Blue Cross.

The event at Cavendish Park, in Grange Farm Avenue, is free to get in to and registration to take part in the competition will start at 11am.

About 100 people turned up to last year’s Skate Jam, but heavy rain saw it delayed several times.
