Safety First,
Not Head First!

Safety always comes first at Hog Hill, so if you wanna skate, you gotta pad up! We have a dedicated team to ensure the event runs smoothly with minimal injury, but it's up to you to take care.

Helmets & Pads

All Skaters must wear a helmet* when riding their board on the track and around the venue. If you are holding your board, or just walking around, you do not need to wear a helmet.​

Downhill Skaters must wear a helmet* and gloves, but we'd recommend wrist guards, knee & elbow pads.

Downhill racers must wear a full face helmet and gloves, and we strongly recommend wrist guards, knee & elbow pads. You'll see most riders wearing leathers to protect themselves from injury.

Spectators do not need to wear safety gear, but must be mindful of skaters, cyclists, pedestrians & drivers at the track.

* The minimum requirement is a half-shell helmet.

St John's Ambulance

St John's Ambulance are on hand & stationed at the bottom of the hill (a prime location for racers to come off their board) ready to bandage wounds & see to injury's.
