At Rampfest, we live and breathe Action Sports - and our mission is to get you as stoked as we are on BMX, Skateboarding, Scooters, MTB, Roller Skates or any other wheeled sport.This guide is here to help you plan your first visit to RampFest. So let's get started.
At RampFest, we have several different sessions & programs available - and most of these are based on your existing skills and experience. To help you pick the best session or program for you, we've broken our sessions down into four main skill levels:
You’ve never been on a Skate Park before and this is all new to you - or maybe you've been a couple of times to the local park, but are still a bit unsure of the whole thing.
You might have some basic "handling" skills on your scooter, skateboard, BMX.
You want to improve your basic skills and learn how to use the Skate Park safely.
You're confident enough to know when to take your turn and when to wait when riding with a group. You’ve got the basics covered and you're able to visit the skate park and have some fun.
You're not super serious, but you enjoy learning new tricks & skills.
You want to keep having fun at the skate park, and making new friends.
You're confident in the park, know when to take your turn, and can use all the park obstacles - now you're hungry for more.
You are chasing progression and you want to improve your skills and learn some more advanced stuff.
You want to learn more advanced tricks and really push the limits.
This is your thing - you're a lifelong Rider or Skater. and you know your way around the park.
You're experienced and confident in taking your turn, and you enjoy hitting the big ramps, going high and going fast!
The bottom line is, you know what you're doing in the skate park, and you want to use the park to its full potential.
You'll need a suitable BMX Bike, Skateboard, Freestyle Scooter, pair of Roller Blades / Skates. When you're checking you're equipment, have a look at:
If you’re not sure about your gear, you can get in touch with us before your visit on (03) 9311 3998 or Info@Rampfest.com.au . You can also ask our friendly staff for advice when you arrive.
At a minimum, you'll need closed in footwear (no thongs or sandals please), and a suitable helmet.
When checking your Helmet, please make sure that
We also recommend that you use some additional safety gear - such as knee pads, gloves, elbow pads, etc. But this is a matter of personal preference. Please ask our staff if you have any questions, and you can see the range of helmets and safety gear we sell here:
If you don’t have your own gear, don’t panic! We have hire scooters, skateboards and helmets available for you at RampFest for $5 each p/session.
Safety is our number one priority at RampFest - we want everyone to have fun and progress their skills without getting hurt. To help you out with this, please read our Ride Safe Tips
The single most important part of safety – protect your head. A helmet must be worn at RampFest and we strongly recommend you use an Australian Standards Certified Helmet at all times.
Look left, right, front to back before you drop in. It’s like crossing a road, but with more looking.
Don’t hog the park – short turns make sure everyone gets a good go. You won't get as tired (less chance of falling), and you're less likely to cut someone else off.
Always sit back from the edge of ramps, and never sit at the bottom of a ramp (you can't be seen here).
Ramps are not slippery slides and the park is not a running track. Stay on your bike / scooter / skateboard at ALL TIMES.
And lastly, please remember to RIDE TO YOUR ABILITY. It's not a competition or a race - work up to every skill gradually, at your own pace.
