The annual Dead Sailor Easter Jam at Mount Hawke is a date on my BMX calendar that always gets me pumped. This feeling is shared by many – it always attracts a wide variety of riders from all across the country. The vibe is chilled, yet bangers get thrown down left right and centre. I think the chilled vibe and positive attitude of all the riders just push people to ride to that extra level.
This year’s Dead Sailor Easter jam boasted its 20th year running at Mount Hawke skatepark. The place originally started off as just a simple half pipe but has come a long way in that time, progressing to the state of the art skatepark that’s there now. With vert, street, bowl and a newly built jump box section, it’s a well rounded park catering for all riding styles.
