Boy wonder Lanny, the show stealer
KERBS Skateboard Assocation brought together skaters, scooter riders and BMX riders for a huge open competition day at the recently opened Wherrytown Skatepark.
The day was organised and run by Kerbs, Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service and South Shore surf and skate shop.
And aside from bringing together the three different extreme sport riders at the prestigious plaza-style facility, it may have uncovered some major talent for the future.
Kerbs' Victoria Walters said: "One of the most popular skateboarders to watch was Lanny, an eight-year-old with talent beyond his years. He was placed second in the best trick category (out of all of the adults too) and everyone was rooting for him."
