Central Coast’s BATO Yard skate facility at Bateau Bay is hosting the King of Concrete skate bowl championships on 2 February, the largest skate bowl event in Australia for 2019.

Following the success of the last year's events, The King of Concrete is set to attract a line-up of local, national and international participants to compete across five categories (Masters, Open Mens, Open Womens, 16 years and under, 12 years and under, 9 years and under) to vie for a placement and share of $5,000 in prize money.

Event organiser and Chairman of Australian Skateboard Federation, Renton Millar has confirmed world champion skateboarder Beaver Fleming, who took out the men’s open title in 2017, will be travelling from the USA to compete in this year’s event – which shows the high level of competition that can be expected.

“The bowl event provides a great platform for the talented local riders to make a name for themselves and compete for a national ranking against the best,” Mr Millar said.

“It also presents so many opportunities for all skaters to really show what bowl skating is all about - big airs and the best lines – which is what the crowds will see at King of Concrete,” Mr Millar said.

Central Coast Council Acting Director, Environment and Planning, Jamie Loader said securing the King of Concrete series events again this year is another win for BATO Yard and demonstrates the high quality of this facility.

“BATO Yard, which sits within EDSACC sporting precinct at Bateau Bay, is positioned as one of the biggest and most diverse facilities in Australia,” Mr Loader said. 

“It has attracted tens of thousands of visitors since its opening in 2016 and is a popular sporting destination for our local skaters, scooter riders and BMX riders of all ages.”

Mayor Jane Smith said that Council are proudly supporting and running a number of skate events in 2019, which provide many social, economic and health benefits for our community.

“In addition to promoting healthy and active lifestyles to our community, events such as The King of Concrete series provide an economic boost for our local businesses through ‘sports’ tourism with many competitors and their families, plus spectators from all over Australia visiting our region,” Mayor Smith said.

“We have an incredibly strong local skate scene and I encourage the community to come along to this family friendly and free-to-watch event to support the best of our local talent compete alongside world-class riders.”

The King of Concrete series events are proudly supported by Council in partnership with Australian Skateboarding Federation and Shedability.
