Burleigh Keg Jump 2022 – What a night!
Burleigh Keg Jump 2022 delivered on its promise to be BIGGER & BETTER, with an epic night celebrating craft beer and skateboarding.
With over 700 eager on-lookers in attendance, a line-up of the best elite, industry level street skateboarders from around the country headed to the Burleigh Taphouse on Friday, June 24th for Burleigh Keg Jump 2022.
The night kicked off with the best trick session, featuring a fresh stock of skate obstacles including a hubber, rails and a pallet of Burleigh Brewing beer. For each trick deemed, the ‘best’ by esteemed judging panel; Sean Holland, Trent Fahey, Leigh Bolton and Izy Mutu – the skaters earned an envelope containing $100 cash and a carton of Burleigh beer to take home. Not bad!
After sinking some tricks (and for the crowd, cold craft beers!), it was time for the skaters to line up for the famous main event – Burleigh Keg Jump.
One by one, keg by keg and eventually, with a single skater left standing… Dani Campbell confirmed his win by jumping and landing an INSANE 14 Burleigh kegs – smashing the previous record of 11 kegs he shared with previous winners, Sam Atkins and Nixen Osbourne.
Dani scored himself a cool $2000 cash in prize money, the renowned Burleigh Golden Growler Trophy, Burleigh beer for a year and an exclusively brewed beer named in his honour at the Burleigh Taphouse – appropriately named DANI DID 14! KEGS.
The skaters weren’t the only ones to put on a show for the night!
Social media sensation, and local legend, Blake Melbourne kept the crowd entertained and up to date as MC while DJ’S Wade De Souz and Ross River Fever kept the beats pumping till late at the official event After Party.
Capturing all the skate action was renowned skate photographer, Darren Kirby – who’s iconic works are currently on display at the Burleigh Taphouse. Darren is our current Artist in Residence.
