Vert Event


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.

Opening day huge success!!

The opening day of the vert ramp was a huge success and we had some awesome tricks on the vert ramp. Amazing to see the people are so amped to skate the ramp and that we have so much talent in Jo’burg!

Winners of Best Trick:

– Skateboarding: Werner du Plessis – Mute gay twist

– BMXing: Jehane Strydom – Tabogan

– Rollerblading: Hugo Vermaak – 540 Front royal

This was all made possible by My Culture and the sponsors of the event. Next time it will only be bigger and we have some great plans with the ramp and upcoming events. So watch this space!
