RAIN stopped play at Ringwood Skate Fest – but not before these stunning photos were taken by Ringwood’s Gary du Plooy.

Mr du Plooy, who runs Bigmouth Design Company, captured these images before organisers were forced to put off the rest of the festival until September.

Organiser Jim Stride said: “We missed the BMX part of the competition and will be holding that the day after Ringwood Carnival, on Sunday, September 16.

“The BMXes will be in the evening procession of the carnival.”
