Monster Children and Levi’s Present: Skateboarding in Christchurch

On February 22, 2011 a 6.3 magnitude earthquake ripped through the centre of Christchurch, New Zealand followed by severe aftershocks killing 185 people, destroying a city, a community and the lives of thousands of people. Five 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 were able to give back to a community in need, following the lead from previous projects from Levi's Skateboarding in Bolivia, India, Oakland and most recently Pine Ridge.
