The Drill Hall in Johannesburg, a former military base built on the remnants of a native prison, is now a public space that has history dating back to 1904. Our friend Quincy from One Love Skate Expo has been able to acquire the space to keep some obstacles and some area for the inner city youth to skate on a daily basis, creating a temporary skatepark in Johannesburg.
We paid a visit to Quincy and the kids to see what goes on and shoot a few photos and film some stuff. Check it out!
The Drill Hall is a dope public space in the middle of Johannesburg that our dude Quincy from One Love Skate Expo maintains. The locals are ripping and put a few down over this bump to ledge. #kdcskate #Johannesburg #southafrica #skateboarding #TF #africanskateboarding #africa #skatelife #mfdoom

The Drill Hall space is shared with football players on their DIY field during the day. The balls fly into the skate space, but everyone seems to get along.
