Fearless international skateboarders will go head to head with the Kiwi warriors for Vans BOWL-A-RAMA Wellington, Saturday 16th February from 11am at Wellington’s Waitangi Park.
The hugely popular week of skateboarding infused culture known as ‘Festival of the Skateboard’, celebrated on Thursday night (14th Feb) the 15 Years of Manual Magazine Presents: 2012 New Zealand Skater of the Year Awards Party.
Friday night the LOVE+GUTS art show will attempt to pay homage to the attitude and style of “The Badlands” which has been a major influence on skateboard culture for more than 35 years. It is this influence you can see on the skaters in this exhibition both on and off their boards.
