TAKE A TOUR AND CHECK OUT WHAT MAKES X AIR, ITS ATHLETES
AND ITS FANS THE COOLEST ACTION SPORT IN NZ
"THE LARGEST AUSTRALASIAN ACTION SPORTS COMPETITION OF ITS TIME"
X AIR - WHAT IS IT?
From 2000 – 2007, X*AIR grew to be Australasia’s largest action sports festival incorporating Skate, BMX, FMX, Inline, break dancing and music. Run over 3 days, professional athletes would come from around the world to compete and take a shot at taking away the gold. Tony Hawk, Dave Mirra, Ryan Nyquist and Sandro Diaz were just some of the names that came to not only compete but also spend time in NZ.
The event started in Hamilton and after outgrowing there, was moved to Wellington and was held across the waterfront entertaining 70,000 people
over the course of the weekend. Acts Shapeshifter, Blindspott and Kora would entertain the crowds when the sun went down.
With the growing popularity of action sports in NZ, and no event like this, it's time to bring X*AIR back….
“So pumped on the return of X-Air! This was the X-Games of NZ and a huge part of the backbone that created ‘MadMike’. I think one of the highlights for me was the international credibility it attracted with the likes of Tony Hawk, Dave Mirra, Tommy Clowers and Bubba to name a few, The proving grounds for us to show off our kiwi talent and style against the worlds best!”
