Christchurch is situated in Canterbury region in the South Island, and is the second largest city of New Zealand. It represents the getaway to Antarctica, while lying next to Pegasus Bay and the Pacific Ocean.

Christchurch is the paradise of scootering lovers with many areas, dedicated to this modern street sport. Washington Way Skatepark is considered to be by many practitioners the best skatepark in the city. It offers many concrete ramps, banks, ledges and hips (beginners bowl area as well), 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 amazing tricks up in the air!
