After its successful inception last year, the Street Lines Skate Tournament returns for 2022, presented by LW Mag and Dragon Energy Drink in association with Dickies, Garmin and GoPro. On 15 October witness the country’s best Men and Women skaters battling it out for their share of the prize purse and to see who will be crowned event champions.
Thrashers Skatepark in Pretoria will again play host for this Street Skateboarding tournament. The event is set to showcase invited athletes from around South Africa competing in the Men’s and Women’s Divisions, and is also open to up-and-coming skaters to put their skills to the test.
Competitors will be pitted against each other in qualifying rounds where judges will be looking for use-of-park, variation, style and tricks to make their selection of skaters advancing into the Finals. Competitors will be competing for their share of the R40 000.00 prize purse as well as exclusive prizes from the official event partners. The tournament will conclude with the Best Trick competition open to all competing skaters with the winner set to take home the new GoPro HERO11 Black.
Street Lines organiser, Ryan van der Spuy says, “Last year’s inaugural tournament went off in a big way and we are extremely proud to produce a top tier skate contest that not only showcases both men’s and women’s skating, but also plays its part in developing new talent. This is a platform for the sport and for the skaters, and we’re excited for the 2022 edition to unfold.”
