The skate park at Kings Beach finally got to have it's official launch on Heritage Day. Mandela Bay Development Agency (MBDA) were the peeps who put together the whole skate park development - and must say that the whole surf & skate community is mighty stoked that we now have such a cool park. Makes flat and onshore days just a bit more bearable!
Props to VonZipper and Element for putting up kiff prizes and to Red Bull, Miki San & Guns n Lazers for MC'ing and making it a jol. There were great performances by Execution Style (Bboys), Sabotage Elite (free runners), BMX's and skateboarders, and loads of lighties having an absolute blast.
The event also marked the launch of the newly formed Madiba Young Bloodz Skate Academy. MYBSA is a social development program aimed at getting previously disadvantaged kids off the street and involved in skateboarding. If you're able to donate any old decks or skate parts, or would like to purchase boards at reduced prices to donate to the program, give em a holler here.
