Why Australia is a great place for skating ?

Indeed, it is a great nation for extreme sports with exciting national competitions such as Wolves of Street, Bowl-a-Rama and the Australian Bowl-Riding Championship. Secondly, there are also famous riders such as CJ Wellsmore who is one my favorite blader. This Australian pro rider has an amazing style while blading on Seba skates. He takes the win of the Fise in Chengdu, China, with two perfect runs even succeeding in beating his own first run score. He also succeeded to get a massive backside UFO grind atop the huge 5 m high vert-wall.
