Your guide to events in Nelson, New Zealand
Saturday 7th January-Sunday 19th February 2017
We had to cancel the last Richmond and Nelson event in January due to bad weather so we have moved the new date to February 2017.
The Tasman Skatepark Tour returns to the region this summer, showcasing the best talent on skateboards, bmx bikes and scooters.
Skate, BMX and scooter competitions are split into junior (5-11 yrs), senior (12-17 yrs) and open (18+ yrs) categories.
The tour’s championship leaderboard has riders across all ages and disciplines competing for competition points from placing at each heat.
Accompanying the smoking hot thrills and spills of the park will be bass pumping, toe tapping tunes from the regions finest youth DJ's.
