Zon of the Lines – Wildcard Callout

Posted by David Read on Sunday October 21 2012

This is your last chance to be part of the Zon of the Lines Skateboarding Invitational

We have kept two spots open in each of the competitions (Christchurch, Wellington and Auckland) so that you can have a chance at a slice of the $10,000 prize pool.

Six skateboarders from across New Zealand will be chosen as part of the Wildcard Callout. They will join 57 of New Zealand’s finest skateboarders in the first Zon of the Lines Skateboard Invitational.

An additional $500 worth of spot prizes will be given away to the best, worst and most creative Wildcard entries.

– Previously unused footage is preferred but not essential
– The line can be filmed on any type of street terrain, park clips will not be considered
– Your line must include at least one trick on an obstacle (ledge, curb, rail, etc). i.e your line can’t be only flatground tricks
