Dozens of children from across Hindmarsh Shire have helped christen Nhill's new skate park with its first day of competition.
The organisation Skate Park Leagues hosted skating, scooter and bicycle motocross competitions on Thursday, as part of the Western Regional Series of the Victorian league.
Ethan Clyde, 17, of Dimboola, said he was eager to return to the skate park because of its quality.
"The big corner is the best bit," he said. "At Dimboola you can't get a lot of speed, but here you've got more height on the ramp so you can just launch."
Nhill resident Susan Hedt lives near the skate park. She said the children using it had been "really good".
"After school they come here and it fills really quickly," she said.
Hindmarsh Shire Council's community development officer Simon Landrigan said coaches also offered guidance on skating to participants.
"We're not sure how many more events we'll have here, or how big they'll be," he said. "We'll assess the interest in the first event and see what happens from there."
The winners of each division received prizes including scooters.
The facility, which opened in April, is located off the Western Highway at Jaypex Park.
