Action Sports Games 2019 entertains Bunbury

The 2019 Drug Aware Action Sports Games delivered two days of thrills and spills, on March 16 and 17.

Paying Bunbury a visit, the athletes were all determined to see the sights, have a bit of fun, and come away with a win.

On Saturday, beach-goers at Koombana Bay witnessed some enthralling wakeboarding action.

Japanese competitor Shota Tezuka took out the top spot with a score of 78.89.

Tezuka was rewarded based on execution (25.53), intensity (27.28), and composition (26.09).

New South Wales stars Parker Seigle (66.67) and Nic Rapa (65.00) finish second and third respectively.

Elliot Digney (63.89), Callan Starr (49.45), and Sam Brown (43.89) rounded out the top six.

Crowds gathered at Bicentennial Square to watch two of Australia's best freestyle motocross riders - Ash Rogers and Brayden Muggins Davies - perform high-flying aerial stunts.

The Freestyle Kings' demonstrations were then followed by the Summer Food Truck Festival at the Graham Bricknell Music Shell on Saturday evening.

Punters then hit Bunbury Skate Park for the $2000 Skate, BMX, and Scooter Competition on Sunday morning.

Local, state, and nationally-recognised athletes took part in the Beginner, Intermediate, and Open events.

Rockingham's Dylan Schmitt took out the Open BMX title, with Luke Tooze (Bulter), Jayden Roadley (Roleystone), and Fabio Canettii (Donnybrook) not too far behind.

Jakob Wells (Mandurah) clinched the Open Scooter title, ahead of Kody Law (Perth), Tyler Jennings (High Wycombe), and Adam Puffler (Manjimup).

Bunbury's Steve Murray secured the top prize in the Open Skateboarding division.

Jack Foreman (Bunbury) finished second, ahead of Dylan Tomlinson (Perth), and Hudson Cleaver (Bunbury).

Levi Pound won the Skateboarding - Intermediate category, while Kieran Ramsay picked up the BMX - Intermediate title.

Freestyle Now chief executive officer Shaun Jarvis and event coordinator Alex Louise were impressed by the level of talent in the South West.

"What I like is that each rider is very different and has their own sense of creativity," Louise said.

"While adapting their skills to the terrain, they do some really awesome things.

"It's a friendly competition, and the riders support each other through the process.

They're stoked if someone lands a trick, and they're gutted if someone hurts themselves."
