Kent Lingeveldt at The Glen

The Glen in Cape Town is not a road to be skated by the inexperienced, the weak of heart, and those that possess no balls, guys and girls alike. It rose to prominence as one of the best downhill skateboarding hills in the early 2000’s when it played host to the Red Bull Downhill Extreme (DHX). For many of us back then this was the road we cut our teeth on and learned the craft of downhill skateboarding. I can say without a doubt that if it wasn’t for the motley crew we had back then doing regular morning runs, the foundation for my love of downhill skateboarding would not have been the same. Thank you boys and girl. Nice to know this hill is a “backyard” for me. – Kent Lingeveldt
