Scootering 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.
Scootering lovers can visit the Te Anau Skatepark, situated in the center of the town. It has several concrete ramps, fast and relatively hard hips, a bowled corner and a funbox with ledges, thus perfect for transition and street scootering. Make your jumps and ollies off the ramps and land back on your wheels, do double-bar spins, stunning wheelies and bunny hops. Buy or take your scooter with you and get ready to perform stunning tricks up in the air!
Note: Be careful, since one of the ledges is half ruined.
