Tag: Waltham Skate Jam
Next stop, its Waltham School! This event is perfect for beginners with the big open flat concrete court down at the school. Sadly, Waltham Bowl just simply isn’t big enough for our event! We will have have the Cheapskates Skate Skool team floating about to help with tips and tricks with free gear hire available on the day! There will be best trick comp with great prizes plus a free BBQ and even a Bouncy castle for the youngsters! Sounds to me like a primo day out for the family!
Waltham School is the place to be on the 1st Day of March! This event has a family focus with additional activities for the little critters including face painting and a bouncy castle as well as the usual learn to skate session and best trick competition on our mobile setup! Also, there will be prizes up for grabs in a basketball shoot out comp! Big thanks to Hellers for hooking up sausy’s for a free BBQ to feed the masses. Spread the word!
We’re back over to Waltham School on the 25th February to kit out their basketball court again. We’ll be putting on a best trick comp with $700 worth of prizes up for grabs, a free BBQ, free gear hire, and trick tips from the Skate Skool team. Bring down the rest of the family too as there will be a bouncy castle, a basketball shoot-out and plenty of other family activites going down.

Saturday’s Waltham Skate Jam proved a hit in the local community with loads of fresh faces and up to 150 people out to jam on ‘Optimus Grind’ — the Skate Skool mobile skatepark.
Our volunteers who ran the gear hire on the day were flat out with over 60 keen lil’ rippers having a go with the gear provided. Some sweet tricks went down in the best trick comp from the 25 competitors who put their bodies on the line for prizes supplied by Cheapskates and Skullcandy. Gnar trick of the day went to Brighton local Jordan Kidd, who hucked a ridiculous FS 360 Indy off the kicker launching out over 4-5 metres!
Shout-outs to the Christchurch City Council, SPARC, and Sport Canterbury for supporting the event, and also the Opawa Baptist Church for cooking up the free BBQ.
