Better outcomes for
skateboarding and skateboarders
Skateboarding New Zealand is the national body representing the interests of skateboarders throughout Aotearoa, New Zealand. We provide a framework to develop High Performance pathways and grow skateboarding as a recreational, sporting, and creative outlet for New Zealanders.
We catch up with Matt Markland ahead of his trip to Lausanne, Switzerland, to represent New Zealand at a World Skate Tour Street event.
The event was a huge success, thanks to the 70+ rangatahi who skated, the whānau who supported them, and our committed team. All this wouldn’t have been possible without the backing of our event and skateboard sponsors and our hosts, East Skate Club and SonSk8.
We aim to achieve our vision by focusing on our Organisation values, Strategic pillars and Well-being values.
Skateboarding New Zealand (SBNZ) is a not-for-profit organisation. Currently, SBNZ is run entirely by a volunteer executive committee. We have a series of partnerships and funding avenues that help us deliver our governance and operational work.
