The KKSM skate tour is on now. They've already been to Auckland, Dunedin, Christchurch and Blenheim. Today the team is visiting Wellington, then heading north to Rotorua and Raglan.
After a rather extensive tour of the South Island, we've added a heap more skateparks to our skatepark finder page. We also cleaned this area up a bit to make it even easier to find skateparks. There's still a lot of North Island parks to add, which we'll be doing over time. Also, we plan on having a way for you to let us know where the skateparks that we missed are.
The Volcom "Wild in the Parks" amateur skate comp was held at Chaffers skatepark, Wellington CBD on Saturday (8th Dec).
KickFlip was down for a few days while we switched to a different website hosting company. (The old one was slow as a sloth) So hopefully this new hosting will make you very happy people, not having to crawl around the website.
For many years Tony Hawks Pro Skater has, in my opinion, been the best skateboarding game around. It has steadily improved in it's graphics and gameplay to some extent. You can do a heck of a lot more in the latest versions than you could back in the days of the Playstation 1. However, one thing that has pretty much stuck throughout the series (9 in total now), is the same old way you do tricks. The number of tricks you can do has increased, but playing it is just too fake. It's just too easy to do a million tricks in one 'combo'.
Early next year, a group of four guys from around the world will be skating the entire length of New Zealand (excluding Stewart Island) for charity. They will be raising money for CanTeen, LST and justgiving Check out skatenewzealand.com for more details about their fund raiser.

Yes, this is the beginning of a brand new skateboarding website. I hope that it proves to be useful for everyone that comes across it.
