Get ready for the biggest comp ever.

The eighth annual Aidan Acton Memorial Skate Comp goes Sunday, Aug. 7 at the Courtenay Skate Park. Organizers and Onethirtythree Skate Shop note the event will run from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the skate park, located at 1951 Lerwick Rd.

“The $15 registration fee includes a T-shirt by Disease Design & Incite Screen Printing, and all the barbecue and refreshments you can put away,” and event coordinator Acton family spokesperson said. “There will be music all day by DJ Souls, and an after party with the DJ and Terell Safadi.

“This year expect more cash and prizes than ever. Any skater in any age group is invited to come out and throw down for a chance at the grand prize of $1,000 cash, a one-of-a-kind custom hand-carved trophy, and enough swag from Onethirtythree to open your own shop,” the spokesperson said.

“The Underworld crew is coming out from Vancouver to throw out even more cash for tricks, making it rain green in the summer. Someone will also be going home with a beer fridge donated from new sponsor Cariboo Brewing.  All levels are welcome, helmets are mandatory,” the spokesperson said.

“Big thanks to the staff at Onethirtythree, Boardwalk, Cariboo Brewing, Higher Ground, Underworld, Disease Design, the City of Courtenay, the Town of Comox, and all of our other partners. This just wouldn’t be the same without your support.”

 

Started in 2004 by Aidan’s friends with money raised from a bottle drive, the Aidan Acton Memorial Skate Comp has grown into the biggest skateboarding competition on Vancouver Island.  Registration begins at 10:30 a.m. For more information, call 250-339-2283.
