Skateboarders stoked with Skate the Foundry competition

Brad Christensen

For the fourth year in a row, CUBA has encouraged people to get on board with their 21st Century version of a skateboarding competition.

It's not often you see a bar turned into a skatepark.

But that's exactly what happened on May 6, when the University of Canterbury transformed its event centre to host the annual event appropriately named Skate the Foundry.

The event is unique, and gets the wheels spinning for many Christchurch students.
