Zon of the Lines is coming to a city near you

Amazon, with the support of Mountain Dew, Vans and Plan B is proud to bring the Zon of the Lines Skateboard Invitational Series to Christchurch, Wellington and Auckland.

A custom made course has been crafted especially for the series featuring street-inspired obstacles such as a picnic table, flat bar and a wheel chair ramp. The set-up will be dropped at iconic locations in Christchurch, Wellington and Auckland where heavyweight line-ups will battle for their slice of a massive $10,000 prize pool.

20 of each region’s finest skateboarders will be handpicked to skate the course in Christchurch and Wellington, with two places in each event being held for wildcard entries.

The Auckland event will see 21 of Auckland’s best shredders, the winners of the Christchurch and Wellington events, along with two more wildcard entrants go head to head for cash and prizes in grand final.

Watch the teaser clip shot with Zon team riders Deen Rakich and Nick Lister, Christian Low and Mountain Dew team rider Brett Band. It shows the custom built set-up complete with a flat bar, manual/grind box, wedge to picnic table and wheel chair ramp.
