Wasaga Beach is an age-friendly community, and the town has not forgotten its youth. As Brandon Dobbs, event organizer and emcee, said: “Skateboard Competition is back!” On Saturday, August 21st, at the Wasaga Skateboard Park at Oakview Woods, highly skilled young boys and girls competed in the challenging maze of obstacles at “Wasaga Sends It.” Two groups of 12 years and under and 18 years and under made up the heats of brave, athletic youth with a passion for skateboarding. In addition, a brother and sister who were just four and five years old handled their skateboards like pros. There were plenty of prizes, and the Wasaga Beach Youth Centre was on-site selling food and drinks to the skaters and spectators.
