Press Release – Zon of the Lines
With only one week to go, anticipation is high as things heat up for what’s set to be one of Auckland’s most anticipated skateboarding events ever.
The Zon of the Lines Skateboarding Invitational series, which began in Christchurch and stopped off in Wellington on its way north, is culminating with a giant final at Auckland’s Shed 12, Wellesley Street this coming Saturday, 1 December.
After troubled weather hampered both the Christchurch and Wellington events, Zon of the Lines is moving indoors for the series finale. In the central city warehouse, 25 skaters will string together lines of three or more tricks as they battle it out on the street-inspired obstacles for their slice of a massive $10,000 prize pool.
21 more of New Zealand’s skateboard elite have been handpicked for the Auckland event, including the flamboyant Mike Bancroft, the tech Deen Rakich, the effortless style of Brett Band and the legendary Nick Lister. They are joined by Christchurch ZOTL winner James Kingston, who is a serious contender for the event. Pedro Day, hot off his win in Wellington last week, will bring his larger than life style to the line up too.
Two more entrants will be announced on Thursday 28 November, chosen from a Wildcard Callout in which skaters from around the region are invited to submit videos with the hope of landing a spot in the prestigious event.
Expect some of the best skateboarding New Zealand has to offer in an event format created by skateboarders for skateboarders.
When: 1-5PM, Saturday, 1 December
Where: Shed 12, 90 Wellesley Street, Auckland
