Jellie Park Skate Jam: Photos & Results
As the days get shorter and weather turns wilder we count down our last couple of events of the 2011/2012 summer series. Saturday’s Jellie Skate Jam was a good day for all and lucky for us the weather stayed on our side.
Over the summer we have noticed some incredible talent coming through in the younger divisions with the likes of the 9 y/o Schweikl twins (Jacob and Dion) who have been turning heads over the last few comps, meaning a bright future ahead for NZ skateboarding. It’s cool to see more girls getting down to our events too!
Thanks to all that came down and all the sponsors who helped make it happen – The Christchurch City Council – Fendalton/Waimairi Community Board, Cheapskates, Sport Canterbury, Sport New Zealand and Skullcandy.
