Just the other day I wrote an article about Loaded that's now officially in South Africa. Then they go and push the stoke by organising the first Loaded SA Slide Jam. Seems like we can expect great things from Loaded SA!
There is a page for the event on Facebook:
It's South Africa's first Loaded slide competition!!
Here's a nice one for all South African longboarders!

This weekend saw the High Rising Downhill Xtreme in Grabouw in the Western Cape. First Nature reports that there were 26 competitors in the open stand-up category, 7 in junior stand-up, 5 in street luge and 2 in Classic luge. It is really nice to see longboarding growing like this here in South Africa.
For a full report of the race, results, some photos and even a video clip, visit First Nature.
