More than a week ago now, we went to the 2011 Cheapskates Otago Skateboarding Regionals that were held in Wanaka.
The competition was run in a jam format with runs for the finals in the 16 & Under and Open sections. As usual Wanaka had fantastic weather and a fun day was had by all. A large contingent traveled up from Dunedin by car and van.
The placings were:
1st – Digby Luxton (Wanaka)
2nd – Olly Wilson (Wanaka)
3rd – Josh Wilson (Wanaka)
16 & Under
1st – Hootie Andrewes (Dunedin)
2nd – PJ Wybrow (Dunedin)
3rd – Josh Bamford (Christchurch)
13 & Under
1st – Niwa Warner (Dunedin)
2nd – Daniel Bridgman (Dunedin)
3rd – Todd Wilkins (Wanaka)
Ashley Low (Dunedin)
Here’s some footage from the day.
A road trip isn’t complete with skating at the parks along the way.
In the morning we stopped of at Alexandra for a skate and leg stretch.
On the way home a detour brought us to Queenstown. The sun was going down when we arrived and we were all tired and burnt, but we had a good skate there until it got dark.
