- ABOUT THE SPOT
Skate Boarding in Te Anau Skatepark, Te Anau, Southland New Zealand
It is literally on the border of Fiordland National Park and Te Wahipounamu World Heritage Area, offering a getaway to awe-inspiring landscapes and magnificent sites of wild nature. An attraction of the area is Te Anau Glowworm Caves. It is a system of caves, not fully formed (only 12,000 years old), home to thousands of glowworms.
Skateboarding lovers can visit the Te Anau Skatepark, situated in the center of the town. It has several concrete ramps, rails, fast and relatively hard hips, a bowled corner and a funbox with ledges, thus perfect for transition and street skating. 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 stunning tricks up in the air!
Note: Be careful, since one of the ledges is half ruined.
