This weekend saw the opening of the new Kings Court Market. Big Dave has opened PE's very first core skate store there, Skate Centre (OK, so Dave's a sucker for keeping it obvious!) They have a permanent mini-ramp built at the shop, all ready to go - just waiting on the graff artists to attack it with some spray cans....pending managements approval!
There's also the Element half pipe that'll be based in the car park there for the next 2 weeks, so pull in, pay your R20 and skate for the morning or the afternoon. All the bucks collected are going to the EP Childrens Home.
Dave and Element organised some skate clinics for the lighties from the Home - that saw nearly 70 kids get their first taste of skateboarding...and boy, where they STOKED! They were only meant to skate for an hour sesh, and 3 hours later they still couldn't pry them off the boards.
Big up to Element who even flew in 2 coaches to do the clinics for the kids, as well as donating some boards to the Home so the frothing lighties can skate themselves stukkend over the school holidays. Great to see the brands giving back to the community. Respect!
Thanks to Vangie, Chad, Dave and all the rest of the crew for ensuring the kids had a total jol.
Also thanks to Cape Town Fish Market who kindly provided meals for the kids. Go eat sushi there ou's! Support people who support your community!
Which means go buy your Christmas pressies at Dave's shop....nothing beats a new surfboard or Element skateboard!
