Llandslide 2018

Every year the city of Cape Town closes its roads to make way for a large group of wanna be Lance Armstrongs from all over South Africa. These road closures allow for the rest of Cape Towns wanna be Kevin Reimers to descend down Llandudnos curves full blast without having to worry about cars.

This years Llandslide was no different to previous years, It was hot, stoke levels were high and skin was lost.
This years turn out was smaller than expected but the stoke was at an all time high.
Boardhub did a fantastic job at organising a really interesting race that involved a board swap, wheel changes, redbull and some art, oh and everyone walked away with a fresh pair of Globe socks. Thank you boardhub!

Some Skaters really stood out, Giloume drove all the way from Mossel Bay and was shredding hard, Blue was killing it along with super grom Sean Grobbelar.A special thanks goes to Yoshi and the baboon van who spent majority of the day driving up and down shuttling the skaters. Ps: some groms need to learn how to skitch responsibly – The baboon van claimed at least 3 boards that day.
