“BOWLZILLA SHAKING THE CAPITAL”
BOWLZILLA Wellington 10/03/2018
New Zealand skating is put on the world stage at BOWLZILLA Wellington 2018. Wellington City
Council, International Skateboarder’s Union, Redhead or Dead Events, Skateboarding New Zealand
and Miryoku Agency are all combining forces to get Wellington shaking.
BOWLZILLA Wellington is the all-encompassing New Zealand National Bowl / Park Skating Titles. SBNZ
the National Governing body of skateboarding in NZ, sanctions this event as the National competition
series final. With such great honour, all stops are pulled out to ensure it is the biggest celebration of
skateboarding and its culture all year in New Zealand.
There is excitement building for this third year of BOWLZILLA Wellington; 10th March at Waitangi Park,
Wellington. The competition is on for the next National Champions with divisions for 16 & Under, Women,
Masters 40+ and Pro/Am Open. With; art shows, parties, music, gatherings, barbecues, good times and the
competition itself, BOWLZILLA Wellington is going to be the greatest weekend of New Zealand skating in
With BOWLZILLA Wellington taking on such an important role in the national landscape and the
partnership with national governing body SBNZ and skateboarding now an official Olympic sport, there is
greater interest and support coming from national government agencies and the public at large. When you
add in that the Oceania representative rider Bowman Hansen at this year’s Park World Champs comes
from Taupo, New Zealand, there are big things ahead for New Zealand skateboarding and BOWLZILLA
Wellington on the 10th of March 2018 is the biggest stage for it.
“What a year for New Zealand skateboarding! Bowman Hansen has done us all proud and proven what we
have been saying all along – we have the best talent pool of skaters in New Zealand. We have had a big
year of behind the scenes planning, to lay the ground work for a stable platform for New Zealand
skateboarding for a long time into the future. Having BOWLZILLA Wellington as our National Final is the
feather in the cap” Jesse Peters, Director – SKATEBOARDING NEW ZEALAND – SBNZ
“Art, music, parties, friends and the best skating of the year all mixed together in the funnest town in New
Zealand. BOWLZILLA Wellington is going to be the biggest celebration of our friends and their talent for
2018 in New Zealand. We invite everyone to come and be part of it.” BOWLZILLA Director – Chad Ford.
