Longboarding events around South Africa

Gauteng Downhill Calendar 2017

JHB Downhill Longboarding SA

Once again, the Jo'burg Longboarders Club is making shit happen. With 12 events on the calendar already, 2017 looks to be the best year in downhill skateboarding that Gauteng has ever seen!

Make sure you're following the discussions on the Jo'burg Longboarders Club on Facebook for any last minute changes to these events. All that's required to be a member of the JLC is that you have a longboard (or your husband, wife, partner, child, nemesis etc. has one) and that you skate or plan to skate in the Gauteng area. So basically nothing is required, just join and help spread the stoke. 

We'll do our best to keep this list up to date with all the info you need so bookmark this page and keep checking back regularly:
