From slam dunks to Dig This: a visit from NBA superstar Steven Adams

3rd September 2019

Dig This attracts the most unlikely customers – part of the fun is seeing people who wouldn’t normally get the chance to sit behind the controls of a digger having the time of their lives out in our giant gravel pit.

Dig This Invercargill is about as far away from the NBA as possible – but the team was stoked when home-grown Kiwi superstar Steven Adams decided to pop into to see us! He was in town doing some basketball training with Southland youngsters, but had a couple hours’ up his sleeve to blat around our field in a digger and even gave the duck challenge a crack.

It was awesome meeting an athlete of his calibre – and seeing that, despite his massive success, he’s still a humble Kiwi dude!

What a legend – and he was pretty unreal on the machines too.
