Sam Carter was recently flown over from Melbourne by Epic Lifestyle owners keen to give their new setup a thorough test and according to Carter it passed with flying colours.

The Australian Parkour Association coach said it was unlike anything he had experienced in Western Australia.

‘It was brilliant to be invited over,’ he said.

‘We’re always looking for something different, and with the rock climbing wall and foam pit it definitely has that (something different).

‘Having all the different variations in one place is great, especially if it’s wet. There are certain benefits to an indoor centre like this one.’

During his short stay, Carter ran parkour coaching sessions for 50 youngsters.
