Trucks, religion and reggae all get investigated in this episode of Pasifika youth show Pacific Beat Street. But first, co-presenter Koryn Dunstan checks out the (then new) trend of motorised skateboards. Khalia Strong meets Christchurch artist Kulimoe'anga 'Stone' Maka, who is painting with smoke. Michael Koloi talks to three ministers in an Auckland Pacific Island Church, then heads south to Christchurch and gets inside a nine-ton truck at the Big Rig Show. Reggae band Three Houses Down close out the episode with a performance of their single 'Dandyman', from 2007 album Dreadtown.
You have your doctors to look after your health. You have your teachers to look after your education. Ministers are there to look after your spiritual walk with God.– A member of the congregation shares the importance of the ministers, at Newton's Pacific Island Presbyterian Church
