The Story of Albany, Western Australia

The journey began back in 1975 when John Arnold of Golden Breed Clothing asked me to come to Australia to promote Skateboarding by doing Demonstrations and Organize Skateboard Competitions across the provinces. The tour was supposed to be for only one month, but it went so well that John asked me stay for another five months.

The small Western Australian town of Albany asked me to join them for the opening of their Community Skate Park which they called "The Snake Run". What I witnessed in February 1976 at Opening Day would not only change my life, but the very core of Skateboarding forever.

A few high school students had not only the passion for Skateboarding, but also a vision. They wanted to build a Skate Park in their small town. Most of them were surfers and so they designed a track that would emulate riding a wave. Their efforts raised $3,000 and the City Council was so impressed that they voted to give another $10,000 to the kids' project.

This was done during a time when skaters were looked down upon by City Councils for being rebellious and a threat to communities. These few skaters would provide a positive model by which skaters and communities could work together in mutual respect.

Impressed by what a handful of kids could accomplish, I shared the story of Albany in every Skate Demo since. Other Skate Parks began to open up and the birth of Skate Parks on a Global scale began to evolve.

Thank you to Albany Snake Run Founders: Laurie Terlick, Ian Tarbottom, Robbie Hicks, Geoff Scott, Tony Johansen, and Graham & Steve Macaula for their Vision, Commitment, Dedication, and Love of Skateboarding.

Thank you to the town of Albany for embracing an idea that the rest of the world had not yet seen.

Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!

The Snake Run Project
February 13, 2016 - 11:00am to 8:30pm
40th Anniversary Celebration for the World's Oldest Existing Skate Park
Location: 162/172 Hare St, Mount Clarence
Albany, Western Australia


A Celebration of Community Involvement And Skateboarding

Albany’s gnarly downhill skate park, The Snake Run, is the world’s oldest community funded skate park. It’s a pilgrimage site for skateboarders from around the world. February 2016 marks the 40th anniversary of its opening, when American skating legend Russ Howell first rode its winding curves.

To celebrate this iconic site, our opening event in the Great Southern is a thrilling collision of skateboarding, dance, parkour and street art all driven by an extraordinary soundscape.

The Snake Run Project celebrates one of the world’s oldest skate parks, the Snake Run in Albany, and its local legends with an event combining cutting edge contemporary performance, freestyle skating, bands and more.

SNAKE RUN - Sat 13 Feb 5.30pm
Highly-skilled skateboarding meets contemporary dance in a dynamic performance that explores the relationship between the snake, skin and the history of the Snake Run site. This high-octane event features surprising moments of beauty amongst the daring and unexpected.

INKING THE SKIN
As part of this urban art project, the designs of more than 100 people are laid onto the concrete sides of the Snake Run. Each design represents its creator’s connection to this legendary place – the skin lost, the fear conquered and the love found.

  • Heritage Minister Albert Jacob
  • Shaun Gladwell - Skater / Artist / Film Maker
