Local skateboarding enthusiasts will have the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get first-hand coaching from the top vert skateboarder in the world in the run-up to the 2012 Maloof Money Cup world skateboarding championships. Pierre Luc Gagnon, also known as PLG, was crowned as vert world champion after an amazing skateboarding display at last year’s contest in Kimberley and will be back to defend his title this year from 28 – 30 September. PLG has not only dominated the vert contests of the world’s greatest skateboarding event, the Maloof Money Cup, each year, but has also won numerous other contests like X Games and the Dew Tour. He is considered to be the most prolific winner in vert skateboarding history. PLG will be conducting two vert half-pipe clinics at the amazing Maloof Skate Plaza in Kimberley on 24 and 25 September for anyone keen to get some insider info on the challenges of vert skateboarding. The youth clinic will be offered free of charge, but will be limited to the first forty entrants to sign up via the website on www.maloofmoneycup.com. Twenty entrants will be accommodated for each of the 1-day clinics. Successful participants will receive confirmation and will have to be on site from 16h00 – 18h00 daily. Clinic attendants will not only receive personal attention from the world champion, but loads of cool prizes are up for grabs as well.“This is an unbelievable opportunity for young skateboarders to receive personal training from the best vert skateboarder in the world. This is what the Maloof championship is all about – paying it forward, exposing South African youth to the incredible sport of skateboarding and allowing them to hone their skills. By getting world-class skateboarders to actively assist in helping these youngsters will definitely be a huge boost for the sport in the Northern Cape and the rest of the country. It’s like getting training tips from an Olympic gold medal winner,” mentions Tim McFerran of Maloof Skateboarding.
