Women’s Skateboarding Mayhem!

March 11th, 2014 Posted by News No Comment yet

Midway Mayhem brought out the girls, as South Africa’s best female skaters came out to skate for part of the R6000 prize purse.

We saw some quick hitting tricks from Saniya Smith, Nabila Smith, Chanelle Oliver, and Kimberley local Natalie Bramley, and Kimberley local 9 year old Boipelo Awuah was blowing minds and inspiring many with her ollies down the three, 180s off the launch ramp, and fearless style.

KDC 2013 Women’s Street champ Kelly Murray showed up and defended her title and left with R3000 cash, throwing down front board shove-its on the flat bar, backside flips on the quarter pipe, and a sweet nollie flip up the kicker ramp. Kelly is holding it down for the girl skaters and we’re stoked to see what she’s got in store for the KDC Women’s Street in October. Check the results:

1. Kelly Murray (R3000)
2. Boipelo Awuah (R2000)
3. Natalie Bramley (R1000)
4. Saniya Smith
5. Chanel Oliver
6. Nabila Smith

Midway Mayhem Skateboarding Calms Down!

March 10th, 2014 Posted by News No Comment yet
It was a hot end-of-summer weekend in Kimberley, and hundreds of amped skaters came to check out the first of KDC’s Grand Slam events. Six months before and after the Kimberley Diamond Cup in early October, Midway Mayhem brought out the best South Africa skaters, and with a R50k prize purse and slots in the KDC Am finals on the line, the skateboarding was very high caliber.
There were women’s street, amateur vert, and am street events, as well as the Rider Cup Team Skateboarding Championships.
Local hiphop acts Taliban and Prof were on the mic throughout the day and Cape Town’s infamous hiphop duo and 20SK8’s hype man B Fake had the crowd hyped for the party following the finals.

Thanks to all the skaters who came out, as well as Kumba Iron Ore, who has been a great supporter of skateboarding in South Africa. Our partners also include Northern Cape Tourism and Monster Energy — Midway Mayhem couldn’t have happened without their generous support. Results for all events coming in news posts over the next few hours.
