MALOOF SKATE PARK

Distance 1.0km

The World Cup in 2010 played a big role in making South Africa a popular tourist destination, especially as a sports venue. Since then, the country has been trying to keep up the momentum by attracting lesser-known events. In October 2011 the country played host to the skateboarding world championship, known as the Maloof Money Cup.

The street course, designed by Joe Ciaglia of California Skateparks and Pro Skater and Vans Team Rider Geoff Rowley, pays tribute to Kimberley’s heritage, incorporating the famous Kimberley diamond into the course design. The features for the course will be based on skate spots from around the world. In addition, the event will also feature a vert contest incorporating a Mini Mega ramp with a vert ramp that will remain permanent for the community.
