Durban Slide Jam Longboarding SA 1 

Durban Downhill Sessions Young Guns attempt at reviving their scene was small but it all starts somewhere. Hopefully this is the start of bigger things to come.

Our little Outlaw jam went off without a hitch. We were very surprised to see some Durban legends spectating. All in all we had 10 skaters, not too shabby considering how long it's been since we've had an event of this kind.

There were some unique attempts for best trick and worst bail (not that they were intended) with @TylerDurban taking best trick with a double hand down to toe side standie. Thanks to all that helped out especially Longboarding SA and Gunslinger Longboards for the incredible prizes. We hope to grow the scene and spread the stoke by doing this more often!
