Shocklands Contest in Melbourne Video


“Many moons ago street comps were about actual street skating and were built more for the enjoyment of the skaters, not the audience. In 2011 the ‘street skating’ that is brought to the masses via the contest arena is pretty far removed from what actually goes down in our back alleys, cities and abandoned spaces. Shocklands was an attempt to get back to the roots of street with real obstacles; tables, lots of right angles, kickers, flat bars, ledges, concrete hips and a distinct lack of drop-in ramps or transitions.”
