His message to PoriruaEdit

Hi Everyone,
Not only do I wish to find a Porirua resident to attempt the skateboard world record, I also want to develop skateboarding as a sport.

To this end I am looking for talented skaters both male and female with the goal of putting together the Justified competition skate team.

Then there are the novice skaters that I wish to develop by ensuring they get the experience and skills to compete successfully in skateboarding.

Whoever wants to become involved are most welcome, I know that there are a lot of talented people here in Porirua.

I am not seeking fame or glory for myself, I just want to promote the sport of skateboarding and give everyone the opportunity to compete whatever their level.

Thanks for reading this,

Allan Parker
