The South African surfing capital will see board action of a different kind when the Maloof Skateboarding for Hope road show hits Jeffreys Bay this weekend. Skateboarding enthusiasts in the Eastern Cape can look forward to an exhilarating skateboarding display at the Element Skatepark in Da Gama Road, Jeffreys Bay on Saturday, 25 August, from 10h00 to 16h00.
The Maloof Money Cup skateboarding world championships will take place in Kimberley from 28 – 30 September and some of the best skateboarders in the world will be in action. The Skateboarding for Hope campaign is a joint initiative between the Northern Cape Provincial Government and Maloof Skateboarding. The community outreach programme forms part of the run-up to the world championships and is aimed at introducing the youth of South Africa to the adrenaline rush of skateboarding.
Skateboarding is one of the fastest growing sports in the world and the Northern Cape government is using the Maloof competition and road show to expose local youth to the sport as an affordable, accessible leisure activity.
Spectators can expect a jam-packed programme with live music, skateboarding demonstrations by top local rider Wandile Nsomi. Fabulous prizes and R5000 in cash are up for grabs for the best trick of the day. Skateboarding fans can win great promotional merchandise and skateboarding gear including complete skateboards in the lucky draws. The best skater of the day will also receive a wild card entry into the amateur contest of the world championships in September.
