HIT THE DECK for an afternoon of fast-paced shredding, creativity and excitement, at the Street Heat multiple discipline skate comp.

Street Heat includes junior and open divisions for scooter, freestyle BMX, quads and skateboards, and allows a range of skills to compete. We had a chat with some of the shredders involved!

Talon Dobson: BMX

How long have you been rolling?
I’ve been racing and riding freestyle BMX since the age of three, which puts me at 20 years on the bike.

Favourite trick?
It would have to be a 360 – the feeling of spinning around mid-air and coming out of it going the way you want is amazing.

What got you into the sport?
My dad! He used to race BMX when he was younger and took me to one of Jingili BMX Club’s come-and-try days. I haven’t stopped riding since.

Favourite thing about comp afternoons?
Seeing all the local talent on all different types of wheels. I’ve tried in the past to roller skate and skateboard, and I just can’t get the hang of it. What some of these kids are doing is just crazy to watch!


How long have you been rolling?
I’ve been skateboarding since March last year, so about a year and a half.

Favourite trick?
My favourite trick is the kick-flip – when I can do one!

What got you into the sport?
I got into skateboarding because I thought it looked fun.

Favourite thing about comp afternoons?
Watching other people’s cool tricks.
