2016 SKATEBOARD COMPETITION 'LEVEL GROUND' HELD IN KIRKINTILLOCH SKATEPARK
FEELZ ON WHEELZ
In the heat of the summer in 2016 we hosted our first edition of ‘Level Ground’ our skateboard competition / street style fest.
Hosted by a local skateboarding O.G. Shug Duncan, the event took place in Kirkintilloch skatepark to spread the word of the extension to the park and to promote skateboarding in the surrounding areas. Throughout the day various competitions took place. We started the day with an open to all Skate Jam, followed by Best trick on new and old sections of the park. Rounding the competition up with a Tranny Competition and a good old fashioned game of S.K.A.T.E.
Entrance to the park and registration posts were marked by the Fakie mannequin Sam holding the Fakie flag. If you didn’t notice him then you would have noticed one of the Fakie Girls walking around with sign up sheets and info on how to get involved.
The 1st place winner received one of our laser engraved Fakie Apparel Whiskey Barrel skateboards made by Neil McKinley at Caleb & Taylor. Runners up also received prizes such as t shirts stickers and limited edition boards. This was the first of Fakie Apparels Annual Competition Series. Keep up to date with our upcoming events through the website or our social media pages, you’ll find us everywhere.
About The Event
Near the end of 2016, we rounded up the year with an event held in The Art School in Glasgow, hosted by Feelz On Wheel in which we sponsored. The night started with live music and a burlesque act. Followed by a skate competition which included prizes donated by ourselves and others...Needless to say everyone enjoyed themselves. While this was all happening, there was a projector above the stage connected to a game console for skaters to play ‘Skate 3’ as they waited for their turn to jump up on the custom built half pipe, right in the middle of the dance floor. Even if you didn’t wanna to take part in the competition, you could grab a beer from the bar at the back and chill to the live music. It was a brilliant turn out and sparked a great interest and enthusiasm towards more nights like this in Glasgow.
