Summerslamz Set To Rock Te Pai Skate Park On 2nd April

SummerSlamz, a free youth event staged by Waitakere City Council, hits Te Pai Skate Park on Saturday 2nd April to round out the summer in style. From 1pm till 4pm, Te Pai Skate Park will be a hive of fun activity – all for FREE.

In celebration of the new $210,000 skate park extension, Cheapskates West will host the best Skate Park & Mini-Ramp Comp to hit Waitakere skate parks, with awesome cash prizes and products up for grabs. A BMX competition is also being held. Be there at 1pm to see the Cheapskates West team take on the Globe skaters as they rip up the park to see who’s got the best tricks.

Kick back and listen to some of Auckland’s up & coming bands as they rock the stage – featuring The Rabble, Incursa, Mesa Dupree and Runninghouse. Or cruise around admiring the many Muscle Cars/ Drag Cars and the like, that will be on display around the park. The Edge is sponsoring the event and will be there on the day with plenty of prizes to give away.

And for the more adventurous, the GoVertical Rock Climbing Wall & Bungee will be in operation throughout the day – for FREE of course.

Tune in to the Edge for more details, or visit www.waitakere.govt.nz to view the event programme.
