Zon of the Lines Skateboard Invitational Hits the Capital


Zon of the Lines Skateboard Invitational Hits the Capital!

Wellington’s Waterfront is gearing up to host the second stop in the Zon of the Lines Skateboard Invitational series this weekend.

Hot off the heels of the first Zon of the Lines in Christchurch on 3 Nov, the finest skateboarders from around the lower North Island will congregate in the heart of the Capital’s bustling waterfront to battle it out for their slice of a massive $10,000 prize pool.

On Saturday, 17 November, Oldins Plaza–one of the cities most iconic skate spots, aptly nicknamed 'Brewery'–will be transformed by a custom made course of street-inspired obstacles such as a manual pad, picnic table, flat bar and a wheel chair ramp.

Here a heavyweight line-up of over 20 skaters, including Wellington legends Joseph Whaanga and Chris Wood, will weave together their best lines in what’s set to be an impressive display from some of New Zealand’s skateboard royalty. They will be joined by two wildcard entries; chosen by their peers through rider-submitted online video parts.

Expect some of the best skateboarding New Zealand has to offer in an event format created by skateboarders for skateboarders.

When: 1-5PM, Saturday, 17 November
Where: Odlins Plaza, Jervois Road, Wellington Waterfront (‘Brewery’ spot)


Zon of the Lines Skateboard Invitational Series, proudly supported by Amazon, Mountain Dew, Vans and Plan B. Made possibly with the support of Wellington City Council

After Wellington the next and final stop in the Zon of the Lines series is 1st December, Auckland. Here more of New Zealand’s skateboard alumni, the winners of the Wellington and Christchurch events and two further Wildcard Entries will battle it out in a massive grand final.
