KDC Midway Mayhem Grand Slam

KDC HOOD TO HOOD TEAM SKATE CHAMPS

The Hood to Hood Finals brought out 4-person teams, featuring SA’s best skaters for a head to head single elimination jam format competition. Teams were chosen via online video entry, Hood to Hood Qualifiers at Boogaloos Grand Slam events in CPT, DBN, and JHB, along with the last minute qualifiers at KDC on Wednesday, bringing in the wildcard team, “Here by Chance” to the brackets.

With R25k first place prize on the line, we saw skating that was equally as gnarly as the pros from several of the skaters. In particular, “The Scumbags” and “The Woolf’s” brought the heat and took no prisoners. We saw several kickflip front board attempts from JHB young gun Brandon Valjalo in the first two rounds, and after several attempts with no luck along with a “contest make”, he pulled it just in time for the buzzer in the finals. The Woolf’s and Anthony De Mendonca also held it down for their crew. Adam Woolf pulled a kickflip back lip and several kickflips over the 4 block rail and his brother was backing him up with front salads and front nosegrinds down the 4 stair rail every try. Anthony’s flawless skating definitely complimented the rest of the team’s flow and landed “The Woolf’s and Two Other Dudes” 2nd place and R10000, respectively. Emcee Jeff Pang renamed ”Here by Chance” to “Beer by Chance”, but it was for sure that rounds were to be bought by HBC when they took out the Dope/Plankie team, landing them in 3rd place and R5000.

“The Scumbags” blew minds in Durban at the Hood to Hood Qualifiers, putting on a full-on demo, earning them a spot in the Hood to Hood Championships at KDC. There was some stiff competition, especially from The Woolf’s, but it was almost obvious from the beginning of the contest who was going to win. Dlamini’s frontside flips over the 4 stair rail, Braxton’s back noseblunts, Jean Marc’s kickflip melon’s combined with Khule’s consistency landed them the gold and R25000 in cash.

Results:

1st – The Sumbags (R25000)
Khule Ngubane
Braxton Haine
Dlamini Dlamini
Jean Marc Johannes

2nd – Woolf’s and Two Other Dudes (R10000)
