Established in 2015, the African Street Skateboarding Championships is an initiative sanctioned by World Skateboarding Grand Prix held annually at the Skateboarding World Championships at Kimberley Diamond Cup in Kimberley, South Africa. The goal of the African Skateboarding Championships is to develop the moral and level of skating all over the continent and allowing the chance for top African skaters to shine on a global platform. The first African Skateboarding Championships was held at the 2015 Skateboarding World Championships at Kimberley Diamond Cup and brought out skaters from all over the continent and outlying islands to compete for cash prizes and the title of African Skateboarding Champion.
In 2016, our partners are holding national qualifier events in select African countries to find the top skater in their respective country to win an all expenses paid trip to compete in the African Skateboarding Championships at Kimberley Diamond Cup. KDC will also be covering the expenses of one skater per African country of which a national qualifier will not be held. These skaters will qualify by submitting a video link of their footage of at least 1 minute in length to our African Skateboarding Championships website. Although World Skateboarding / Kimberley Diamond Cup will be covering the expenses of ONLY ONE SKATER PER AFRICAN COUNTRY, any African skaters willing to travel to Kimberley own their own expenses to qualify and compete may do so.
