Olly Thorley-Symes shows the style which recently won him the open longboard competition — and a trip for two to Australia — at Rollercoaster2010 at North Harbour Stadium.
Raglan longboarders travelled up to Auckland in numbers to the event — billed as showcasing New Zealand’s best skate, wake and BMX riders.
The Raglan crew were rewarded with a clean sweep , with Simon Laxon placing second and Vinnie Woolston third. The trio won thousands of dollars’ worth of new boards and gear.
For Olly, with his arm still in a cast from a New Year’s accident, success was super-sweet after he was pipped at the post in last year’s event and came away with a new board but not the winner’s cash prize.
