It was a sizzling hot day in the park on Saturday and what better way to spend your it than in the sun, eating free sausages and jamming to sweet music at the St Albans Skate Jam. The place was buzzing with loads of lil’ rippers eager to have their turn on the ramp and keen to learn new tricks from the Skate Skool team. MC Kev was on the mic keeping things amusing while the crowd of around 150 enjoyed the sun.

The New Brighton crew were representing—in fact they took home most the prizes. This is our last event for the year but certainly not the last for the summer with another 10 events early next year.
Check out some sweet pics and the results from the best trick comp below.

Upcoming event—St Albans Skate Jam

6th December

Alright we’re all into education here so we put our designer Andy to the test to come up with something challenging—this is what he came up with…

Low designer intellect aside, this event is going to go off! Our (what is becoming a standard now) free BBQ will feed the masses, and the Skate Skool team will be there to share their skating knowledge. We’ve had to settle down on the $700 worth of prizes given out at last weekend’s Linwood X-Games, but here’s still plenty up for grabs. Come down and see how we can pimp out the cleanest spine ramp in Christchurch with our mobile skatepark!

Where» St Albans Park Skatepark, Madras Street.
When» 12–3 pm, Saturday 11th December
Who’s helping this event happen?» Cheapskates, Christchurch City Council, SPARC, Sport Canterbury, Skullcandy and Hellers.

See you there!
