Since 2004, skateboarding has had great support from all over regional Australia.
These towns have helped create talent, give skateparks a home in their cities and support the community initiatives we have developed.
There is major issues in towns with Bushfires, Drought and many other issues effecting these towns. As a community skateboarders can help support these regions and people effected in them.
From today a $5 fee will be added to competition entry fees to go directly towards Rural Aid.
Rural aid have a number of great initiatives in supporting these regions and are able to support the towns in need that have been supportive of skateboarding for years.
Its a tough time, and its important we give back to those who support us.
