Flash moves


Frankton’s Liam Aston (right), 12, clears a garden at Queenstown’s skate park last Thursday.

Aston was one of many young skaters impressing the crowd with their best moves at the Park Up event – part of the resort’s Summerdaze festival. Organised by Summit youth workers, skaters showed off their talents in three age groups.

Youth worker Roanna Pine says the idea behind Park Up is to hold something specifically for youth in summer.
