Skaters were ripping up the course to compete for some pretty serious prize money. 1st prize was a cool R10,000, 2nd was R5,000 and 3rd prize was R3,000. Not bad going at all! I arrived at around 13:00 and got to see the last heats and the finals followed by the Best Trick comp. There were 100 skaters entered and when the course was open it was pretty chaotic, but these guys are used to it, everything flowed great. During the heats I missioned around to find some cool angles to get pics from, I think it worked out pretty well, I'm stoked with the shots I got. It's been a while since I shot an event like this. It made me miss my skating days. Good times.
Moses Adams took first spot, Dlamini Dlamini took second and Khule Ngubane placed third. Big up to Red Bull, Vans and Skull Candy for a wicked event. I definitely want to do more events like this. If you're doing something similar and need a photographer, hit me up, I’m keen. There's a selection of pics below, but the full gallery is available on Facebook.
