uni days 2017

Organized by: Chris Huriwai, Sam La Hood, Arahoe School
Location: Auckland, Arahoe School
Participants (registered competitors): 37
Competitions held: Street, Flatland, High Jump, Long Jump, Slalom, Trials, Speed Trials
Competitions cancelled due to time: Best Trick

Event breakdown: New champions for Street, Flatland, High jump and Trials! We also introduced a new competition to NZ: Speed Trials. Due to time constraints we had to cancel the 'Best Trick' competition, which we're excited to implement into next years schedule.

uni days trials

This year had a strong focus on the trials competition, as it was lacking last year. There were lines ranging from super beginner friendly to dangerously near-impossible expert lines! There was a great turnout from the junior competitiors in all competitions, they actually made up the bulk of the registration list, which is very promising for the future!

We also had a great international turn out, with riders from Australia, France, Italy and Germany! With such a great result, we've decided to make this timeslot in December the same for next year. With the hope of New Zealand's summer being another incentive to encourage more international riders to join in.

A special thank you to all the volunteers, builders, judges, MC's, DJ's and food stalls, you guys made this event totally awesome! A special shout out to Mario Bel and Moise Domise for leading the building team for Trials and Street, merci! Aswell special thanks to everyone at Arahoe School but mainly: Megan Conolley, Andrea Kite, Andrea Martin and Corin Armstead for holding everything together! And to Bryan Page for running slalom and hockey! There really are too many to name… Sorry if we've forgotten anyone- no doubt we have, you all know who you are, we really appreciated the help! Suggestions for next Uni Days are VERY welcome, so please do not hesitate.

Video footage coming soon! Please be patient as we have a lot of footage to comb through!
