Red Bull’s Grass Roots Tour kicked off immediately following KDC and set out for a cross country skate trip searching out skate spots and good times across South Africa. In the van were TJ Rogers of Canada, Mikey Mendoza of Australia, and SA’s Moses & Allan Adams. Red Bull wanted to give the opportunity to a local Kimberley skater to tag along, so Kumba Skate Plaza’s own Siphiwe Keshwa was along for the ride to mission around with the big guns.
Scroll below for a few photos and video from the trip and click here for all updates from the Grass Roots Tour here. We’ll be dropping a few photos and video clips from the trip on our social media pages, so keep an eye out. Thanks to RedBull for having us along and for the once in a lifetime opportunity for one of our local Kimberley skaters!
