Wildcard Entries:

Brian Haycock, Auckland – Though there’s actually four tricks in this line, some would say that more is less. Bri sets the standard pretty high with our first entry.

Adrian Vercoe, Wellington – Brownie points for taking it to the brewery? Maybe…

Mohi Paul, Wellington or Auckland (from Waiouru) – dropping a five trick line, with some serious snaps, for the cause.

Darren Beach, Wellington (from Levin) – I have a feeling if they keep coming in like this one narrowing it down to six is going to be very tricky.

Mosgiel’s Ashley Low submitted this two trick line and full part – some sick skating in there. He’s a definite contender for a spot in the Christchurch Zon of the Lines. Damian made the list for the Christchurch event.

A slick three tricks from Ben Morice, aiming for a place in the Auckland event.

Sean Cupples with a speedy line. He’s vying for a spot in the Wellington ZOTL.
