Skate Boarding in Queenstown Skatepark, South Island, Otago New Zealand

Skating:
Transition/street
Queenstown is considered by many sportsmen as the capital of extreme sports and adventure activities. It is situated in Otago region, in the South Island, New Zealand.

The town is surrounded by Lake Wakatipu and the awe-inspiring Southern Alps, with spectacular mountains such as the Remarkables, Cecil Peak and Ben Lomond. Queenstown and the surrounding area was the setting for the legendary films Lord of the Rings and X-Men Origins. Despite the mountainous landscape, the climate is considered to be oceanic, with warm summers and temperatures that can reach up to 30°C/86°F, and cold winters with frequent snowfalls.

Queenstown has to offer one of the best skateparks in New Zealand. It is situated in Queenstown Gardens and is basically a newly built park with modern design and obstacles. It has many concrete ramps, rails, fast and relatively hard banks and hips, several pyramids, a huge bowl, and is thus perfect for transition and street skateboarding.

Slide on the rails, make your jumps and ollies off the ramps and land back again on your board, do stunning kickflips and drop-ins. Buy or take your skateboard with you and get ready to perform amazing tricks up in the air!
