“On February 22nd, 2011 a 6.3 magnitude earthquake ripped through the centre of Christchurch followed by severe aftershocks killing 185 people, destroying a city, a community and the lives of thousands of people. 5-years on and the rubble still lies in the streets of Christchurch as a cold reminder of what mother nature is capable of.”
Levi’s Skateboarding and Monster Children present the story of the Christchurch skate scene, coming together after their city was destroyed in the 2011 earthquake. In December 2015 Levi’s riders Al Partenen, Josh Matthews, Dan Plunkett, Marius Syvanen, Pat Moran and Joey Pepper travelled to New Zealand to help the local skate community rebuild.
