Lots of things have happened since we launched the website, heres a recap on what's happened since our first update:

Uni Weekend in Dargaville was a big success, check out the results/videos here! Huge competitive level for New Zealand, showing lots of promise for the next Uni Weekend scheduled to happen in Wellington around December, keep an eye on this space for updates.

Shortly after Uni Weekend, Uninats was run in Canberra, Australia. Isaac Conyers was there to capture the best moments on camera to make another amazing video, UniNats 2013. Competitions were brutal, Mike Padial made it into a tie-breaker final for Trials and came away with 1st place. Sam La Hood continues her streak and won the female street title. Chris Huriwai wasn't so lucky, being beaten by Perth rider Waylon Batt, for Chris's first non 1st place Street comp, since Uni Weekend in Christchurch 2010.

Chris Aitken

Hippo's sponsored team is growing! With help from public sales, we've gained a new addition, Chris Aitken. A keen rider from Wellington, he's been on the scene for a while and has made the switch from UDC to join the team for 2014. Check out Chris's profile + videos here!


Only a few weeks after Uninats, the New Years holidays came, along with the Pretty Good Crew, gathering together to film another video for the PG series: "The Pretty Good Vid #5". Featuring lots of fresh riding from everyone and more fun times captured on film, check it out here!

What to expect for 2014:

Unicon 17, we're bringing home the gold! New clothes will be available after Unicon, Uni Weekend in Bombay, Hippo Team 2014 Video and more and more stock (new parts arrive every month!).
