Skateboarding For Hope Presented By Vans Langebaan Recap: Results, Photos, & Video

Skateboarding For Hope Presented By Vans hit Western Cape’s Langebaan Skatepark on 25 July, 2015 hosting a skate clinic for underprivileged children of the area and a skate contest for top local skaters. There was a heavy presence from the Cape Town rippers, and all the heads came out for a shot at some cash. In the end, it was Tyler Kammies taking the TopGrom title and Alan Marola leaving with cash for a win in the Open Division.

Thanks to all of our sponsors and partners who made the event possible and contributed to another great SFH stop for the season: Langebaan Skatepark, Vans, Kumba Iron Ore, Northern Cape Tourism, Red Bull, Top Grom, World Skateboarding Grand Prix, Aquavita, Old School Productions, and Pragmatics.
