The Treetops skate jam represents the successful completion of WSA project #01: Treetops makeover. Through a crowdfunding campaign in late 2017, the WSA raised nearly $6000 to build four new obstacles for Treetops, Wellington’s best DIY skate spot. These obstacles—a flat bar, ledge, curbs and hipped quarter pipe—were designed and manufactured by the WSA team (with some professional help) and installed at Treetops the day before the skate jam. Prizes were given for best tricks on each of the new obstacles, as well as best trick into the dirt hill, longest kickflip, and winner of a tic-tac race.
