Beerwah duo on board for skate comp

TWO Beerwah children have shown initiative beyond their years after creating a local skating competition that has gained strong support from local businesses and politicians.

Grace and Izaac Kwarcianyi said they loved skateboarding and rollerblading, but were frustrated at the lack of organised competition.

Rather than complain about it the brother and sister team have created the Beerwah Skate Comp, which will be held at the local skate park on Sunday April 3.

The pair have organised their own sponsorship including from Caloundra MP Jason Hunt and the Sunshine Coast Council.

Professional demonstrations will be held along with workshops and coaching throughout the day.

Entrants have the chance to win prizes with 60 second runs to show their best moves.

Registrations are now open from under 9s to opens.
