yea I must be the only active member here eh, good to finally see some local company on gf.

I'm in central Auckland. There's about 5 of us in total.. maybe another 5 more in the rest of the country.

www.nzflatland.co.nz is the place to go, but the interact section's been down for a few months now.

I connected with a guy "Vic" but we never got to ride while I was there.

I never heard from you! I completely forgot until last night.

Yeah he lives here in Nor-Cal with his wife Allison and their daughter
and he works at the Whole Foods Market in San Ramon.

He is trying to get a bike put together here as shipping his bike
from KIWI land will cost nearly $600 so yeah a bunch of us are
helping put a bike together so he can ride again at The Spot in
Danville with DREW, MYSELF, OSG, JUN JUN AND SOME OTHERS!

hey Nick! i didn't know that you were on here. i've been a member of the board for a while now but i just don't post much. i usually just go to the main global-flat page and check out the what's going on bit of it. lucky i came across this haha.

flt trix: give my regards to Kerry for me. i'm June and he knows me. me and a few of us rode with him at the old local netball courts spot the last time he went down. i didn't realise he'd left his bike here. ask him if he's managed to get in touch with Parris.

but yeah on topic, www.nzflatland.co.nz is the place to go if you're looking to hook up with some riders in New Zealand. i run it along with another person and even though it's not updated much, we usually check the interact section daily.

Sorry Vic, I shot you a message but it was pretty far in advance.  too bad because we were in Auckland for a little bit but mostly south island and matamata (sp?).

Auck was awesome.  I didn't see a flat piece of concrete anywhere downtown though, lol.  You guys must ride outside the city or a parking garage?

maybe next time i'm ever in NZ, ??

Auckland City itself has very little flat ground. the flattest place in the CBD is at Aotea Square which is right next to the IMAX theaters. it's off Queen St but not sure if you went past it.

i live just outside of the City over the Harbour Bridge on the North Shore. there's a huge local spot where Kerry Gatt and them used to session in Mt Eden which is a suburb next to the city.

if you're ever in NZ again, just let us know through the site and we'll definitely hook up and ride!

you mean those courts by the school
i think carebear told me about them and yeah
ill tell him as ill see him and Drew tonight..Andrew
Arroyo.

i dont know if Parris is riding anymore i have not heard
much from the New Zealand riders so it is up to you guys
to get everyone together again and get session flowing.

Kerry is staying here for awhile i guess
