What a wonderful, embracing island Tasmania is. The entire State is cranking with skateboarding events weekly. We started our StreetWise session at 9am in the middle of Winter which was a bit crazy seeing how cold it gets, but the following has steadily risen and the Summer is set to be a great season for skateboarding in the South, North, and North-West Hubs. The support from the State and Local Governments has been terrific, a testament to its cultural openness. Huge thanks to Jimmy’s Skate N Street who have helped get our message across in the early stages, as well as to our three committed Hub Managers Paul McMacken, Hayden Baker, and Jordan Latoa, who all love skateboarding very much and are happy to share it.
