THE MANDURAH MAZDA ACTION SPORTS GAMES PRESENTED BY DRUG AWARE
WAKEBOARD TOURNAMENT SETS EQUAL PRIZE MONEY FOR MEN AND WOMEN
As part of developing equal opportunity for women, the Mandurah Mazda Action Sports Games presented by Drug Aware will introduce a professional women’s division in wakeboarding and skateboarding.
This is the first-time females will be back on the water in Mandurah since the IWWF World Cup in 2015 and this year’s event will offer equal prizemoney for both men and women.
Professional female Wakeboard competitor Mackenzie McCarthy said “It is so good to see Mandurah Action Sports Games including a women’s division this year, in conjunction with Wakeboard Australia and WA Wakeboarding recognising the value of equal prize money in both the men’s and women’s divisions. It’s great to be a part of an amazing event”
A newly created women’s division will also be included in the skateboard, scooter and BMX competition which will truly bring equality and diversity to these largely dominated male sports.
Shaun Jarvis, sports manager said, “moving the Action Sports Games back to Mandurah is really exciting and having the event at a world class skate park such as Mandurah gives us the opportunity to expand the skate, scooter and BMX comp over two days and we can now include a girls division”
The Action Sports arena has been predominately a male driven sport over the last 10 years however, that is slowly changing with more and more young girls showing up at skate parks and absolutely shredding the concrete and showing considerable talent.
Event Director Tim Thirsk said, “I have always been a big fan of women in sports and over the last couple of years have seen quite a few girls taking part in training camps in both wakeboarding, skateboarding, scooter riding and BMX so its about time we created the opportunity for girls to compete in a division that they feel safe, comfortable and included” Thirsk went on, “I can’t wait to see the ladies take to the water and the skate park and showcase their respective talents”.
Originally the event had a big contingent of female wakeboarder coming from Queensland but unfortunately due to the current COVID quarantine restrictions they have had to cancel their fights and accommodation. However, NSW, Victoria, South Australia, and Tasmania will field several female wakeboarders that will come to WA to compete.
The Mandurah Mazda Action Sports Games presented by Drug Aware will combine wakeboarding, freestyle motocross, skateboarding, BMX and scooter events into an action-packed weekend of extreme sports along with fantastic array of international foods.
On Saturday 10 of April, the new world class Mandurah Skate Park will host a major Headspace skateboard and scooter competition with hundreds of competitors from all over WA to compete for over $5000 in cash and prizes.
Plus, there will be some Australia’s best Freestyle Motocross rider such as Brayden Davies putting on an amazing aerial display of adrenalin pumping tricks in the Apex Radiology FMX demonstration. Brayden is pumped up to get back to Mandurah to light up the skies with his insane aerial tricks.
“ I am looking forward to riding Action Sports Games again it is one of my favourite events and have stuck around to put on a show for the people in Mandurah before I head over to the eastern state for a massive run of shows for Freestyle Kings”.
Sunday the 11 April, the Nautique West wakeboarding competition will be held on Mandjar Bay and with both men and women competing for equal prize money so it is going to be an exciting day on the water.
The Action Sports Games is a free event, and we are looking forward to welcoming everyone back to the event.
