Welcome Boomerdog - glad you found us! We need more skilled immigrants (skate skills should count I reckon).

Kincumber (Central Coast, NSW) is a bit light on for serious 'crete - the indoor ‘Slam Factory’ at a place called Tuggerah is close to you and Umina and Kariong have smallish parks.

You’ll be travellin some to roll the bigger/better terrain in Sydney town.

Keep an eye on the site and we can hook you up here.
