If you’ve ever heard anything about Canberra it’s probably something along the lines of it being a boring concrete city that arguably, even most Australian’s haven’t been to. However if there’s ever been a reason to visit, Belcopalooza would be it! October guarantees that ‘boring concrete city’ a shred of excitement as some of Australia’s finest skaters battle it out at Belconnen Skatepark. To illustrate the level of skate heritage present in Canberra, the terrain and the background behind Belco – they made a video. It’s worth a watch.
“Canberra: it seems like it’s more underground, more secret these days. But it is skateboarding heaven; everything you want, 20 minutes from one side of the city to the other. Bliss.” – Jack Fardell
