Promenade Mondays: Remember Jay Video

Tribute to Jay Adams; The Original Seed
1961 – 2014

South Africa celebrated Heritage Day on 22 September 2014, a day in which we celebrate our diverse cultures.

At the core of skateboarding culture is Jay Adams, who passed away earlier this year. Jay, is the original seed and his style and skill has no forebears. Jay Adams is skateboarding personified, and for this reason we pay tribute and celebrate his life as a legend.

For the first time in South Africa, we are urging skaters to revel in our heritage, not as a “sub culture” or “fringe sport” but as a legitimate culture and community.

So we met up with a bunch of skaters on Sea Point Promenade in Cape Town to pay tribute and celebrate our skate heritage.

REVOLUTION TEAM AT VALHALLA SKATEPARK

The Revolution team skated the Valhalla Park skatepark in Cape Town recently. It was a super hot day, but we managed to get a fun session down. At the end we were proud to be able to help some of the local kids out with a few completes.

Featuring Simon Stipcich, Andrew Nero, Jean-Marc Johannes, Byron Rhoda and Ryan Naidoo.

Valhalla Park skatepark, designed by Woodies Ramps and built by Umzali Civils and Spyda Ramps, is 4300 square metres and is one of the biggest skateparks in Africa. It officially opened on the 9th of December 2013.

PHOTOS: COMEBACK KID AT MERCURY LIVE

Greg Maxwell took some nice photos from Comeback Kid’s final stop of their South African tour, at Mercury Live, Cape Town, South Africa.

Comeback Kid were supported (in order of performance) by Peasant, Take Hand, Reason to Live and Truth and Its Burden. If you were at any of the shows, you will know how good our local bands were, and how amazing it was to see Comeback Kid live. If you weren’t, then you missed out, but hopefully these photos give you a taste of what went down.
