We’ll keep this week’s write up this short and sweet. Friday led us to the Mini Ramp Jam, offering prizes for Beginners and Advanced Divisions. Saturday’s Best Trick Jam on the marble ledges brought forward a similar format, sans transition, substitute the ledges. The kids are shredding as hard as ever and 2014 is looking up.
Here are the results from this past weekend’s competitions at the Kumba Skate Plaza. Don’t forget to peep the photo gallery, either.

After the contests we decided to have a little jam on the Tech section without the table ledge, euro gap and the 2 stairs for T-shirt prizes. Will Meleng stole a T-shirt with a nollie lazer flip off the launch, Sphiwe also laid down a proper crook down the ledge and Alec decided to fly off the 3 stair with a sick front shuv.
