Sascha Krueger, has been shredding in NZ since ’98 originating from German. Skating for over a quarter of a century by now and still loving it, hyped on the history of skateboarding and passing it on to the next generation and all of us who from time to time forget about “the good old days”. A true inspiration to collectors near and far is happily sharing his collection with all of us. Some of which may be puchased on the night!

It will be an exhibition of early NZ & Australian Skateboards from the late 70s to the early 90s, shining some light on a few skaters from our neighbourhood that helped put New Zealand on the map of international skateboarding, when most people didn’t even know where New Zealand was. The event is aimed to bring out all the geeks, pack rats and collectors, and everyone that has loved skateboarding since the day they started.

Come Take a trip down memory lane, and pay respects to the orignal rippers from past to present.
