2016 here we go!

We also say a respectful goodbye to 3 members of the team: Mike Padial, Chris Aitken and Chris Champion. Expect fresh COTW's and collaboration videos from the new team members: Harry Atherton, Dan Cowling, Waylon Batt and Ebony O'Dea + a whole new attitude from the team!
Current Champions for Street, Flatland and Trials:
In addition to monitoring the NZ and AUS high and long jump records, we're now also currently tracking the NZ & AUS Street, Flatland and Trials champions. Keep up to date with the best, updated after every national competition. We're currently working on pages to cover other 'unofficial' records such as: high jump onto pallets, static gap, rolling gap (edge to edge).
Released in 2015, the official Hippo t-shirt is still available from youth sizes to adults. For orders outside of NZ, contact us directly. Before Unicon (July/August) we're hoping to have our first singlets available.
NZUni Weekend 2016:
We are currently looking for a venue, our current options are either Auckland or Hastings. If you'd like to voice your opinion about our nationals, please contact us. Date: December
New street and flatland champions: Harry Atherton, Waylon Batt
Still in the works:
Uniquest tutorials are still being developed. What is it? The idea is to have a comprehensive guide to extreme unicycling, indepth and more than your average tutorial. Uniquest is designed to give riders as many new things to try as possible, innovative ideas to keep progressing fun. At the moment we're just waiting for the final logo design before we can post our first episode.
Enjoy yourselves guys,
