Skating is big success

By Kirra Livingstone

THE very first Beerwah Skate Comp, which was a few weeks ago, had a turnout of more than 80 competitors competing in skateboarding, rollerblading and scooter riding.

Skate comp organiser Grace Kwarcianyi said the age groups included under 9s, under 12s, under 15s and open 16s plus for the three disciplines, with one competitor doing particularly well on the day.

“One kid, Hudson, came first in skateboarding for under 9s and under 12s, and second for under 15s,” she said.

And of course, organisers Grace and brother Izaac Kwarcianyi, had to compete in the competition as well.

Grace came 1st in rollerblading in her division, whereas Izaac came 5th in skateboarding in his division.
