The Mangawhai Bowl Jam is all set for Saturday, Feb 8, 2020. Now cemented as New Zealand’s largest skateboarding event with skaters traveling from across the country and over the ditch to compete in front of a packed out crowd.

The Mangawhai Bowl Jam team have been working hard behind the scenes to make this year’s event better than ever. Now with over $9k worth of cash and prizes up for grabs across four divisions: Under 16s, Womens, Open and Masters. The 2020 event is expected to draw a larger talent pool than ever before, and will feature increased seating capacity for your viewing pleasure. Now in its 9th year the Mangawhai Bowl Jam does not look like it’s slowing down anytime soon and is one event on the calendar that you do not want to miss.

“What it’s become now is a platform for skateboarders to compete at a top level… a stepping stone” – Jesse Peters, Organiser
