Over the weekend of the 29-31st March we will be hosting the boys from Durban for a Gauteng Skate Park and Street spot road trip.
Organized in conjunction with Bruce ( Bay O Plenty Skatez ). This is not a comp but just a fun weekend and a opportunity for Skaters to meet up with the guys from KZN and rip the parks.
We are planning to skate Thrashers Pretoria, Revolution Kempton Park, The Vert Ramp in Midrand, Stone Ridge, Alexandra, and Brightwater Commons.
We will keep you updated as to where the crew will be on what days and what time over the weekend.
The visiting crew are in no particular order Bruce (Bay O Plenty Skatez) Raymond (Big Daddy) Wittstock and his son David, Dane Strike, Desmond Gouws, George Van Blerk aka GVB. Local young guns Brian and Michael Stylianou with their Dad Chris who will be pealing the oranges.
It would be awesome if the locals from around Gauteng join in the fun and spend the weekend with us skating the parks.

The past weekend was a great experience and hosting a Vert clinic at the Maloof skate plaza in Kimberley was a great honour. Thanks to ‘Chinner’, from Maloof, we could show the kids the basics of skating on the huge vert ramp. Big shout out to Boogaloos that supplied us with some pads and helmets to keep all the kids safe on the ramp.
We are having a Vert clinic at the Kimberley Maloof Plaza skatepark vert ramp on Saturday, July 28th from 9-10am and a session from 3-4pm. Anyone is welcome to join the clinic and we will show you the basics of skating the vert ramp. Some of the top South African vert skaters will be there and will have a vert session/demo after the clinic.
Make sure to bring your knee pads and helmets. This is going to be lots of fun and hope to see you there!
