Location: Bunbury Skate Park and Koombana Bay (North), Bunbury Western Australia
The Action Sports Games presented by Drug Aware, now in its third year, is set to return to the vibrant City of Bunbury, Western Australia.
Bunbury is one of the few major cities in the world that can boast to having amazing beaches on its doorstep, flanked by an array of beautiful inland waterways. With a vibrant city lifestyle, fine restaurants, a world-class café strip and plenty of accommodation options, Bunbury is the perfect setting for major sporting events, such as the Action Sports Games.
Combining wakeboarding, freestyle motocross, skateboarding, BMX and scooter, this action-packed sports event will attract some of Australia’s best action sports stars to Bunbury to compete for a whopping $20,000 in cash and prizes.
Koombana Bay will host the world-class wakeboard tournament and Shota Tezuka (Jpn), currently ranked 5th in the world, will be back to defend his title.
Early March is prime seasonal weather conditions for the Southwest of Australia, and many of the world’s best wakeboarders, Freestyle Moto X riders, Skateboarders and BMX riders are set to call Bunbury home for the weekend of competition.
“We are fortunate to receive funding from the State Government through Tourism Western Australia and Royalties for Regions, Drug Aware through Healthway and the City of Bunbury to keep this awesome event on track,” said ASG Event Director Tim Thirsk. “We also have amazing support from other event partners, such as the Bayview Bar and Restaurant, GWN7, Nautique West, Island Apparel and a Salon Express.”
This year, the event organisers have made some big changes. Originally located across three venues, the event will now be located at the Bunbury Skate Park and Market Square, Koombana Bay.
On Saturday 29 February, Bunbury will host a major Skateboard, BMX and Scooter competition with over 120 competitors from all over WA coming down to compete for over $3000 in cash and prizes.
On Sunday 1 March, Koombana Bay will come alive with the Freestyle Moto X exhibition along with the international wakeboard tournament, the Summer Food Truck Festival and DJ’s all happening on one big action-packed day.
The Action Sports Games is a free event, and will no doubt attract a big crowd down to Bunbury for the weekend.
Bunbury Mayor Gary Brennan said he was excited that a high calibre event such as the Action Sports Games was held in Bunbury. “Events that bring such a diverse mix of sports and activities to our City are important for the social and economic fabric of our community,” Mr Brennan said “Bunbury is rapidly becoming a location of choice for major events, which has been a major focus for the City, and we are sure everyone will welcome the competitors and spectators with open arms.”
This major event is set to become one of the richest wakeboarding events in Australia, as it is held the week before the Moomba Masters in Victoria, it will attract a top field of world class wakeboarders, fantastic media and promote the vibrancy of the City of Bunbury.
