Vert Fridays at Kimberley Maloof Plaza

“Vert Fridays” is a weekly event held over at the Kimberley, South Africa Maloof Plaza in which the local skaters are given the opportunity to borrow some pads and a helmet and perfect their skills on the vert ramp. Vert Fridays usually entails lessons on the vert ramp including the basics of vert skating: pumping, kickturning, etc. and is usually followed by a contest. Highest kickturn, highest fs kickturn, and highest tail tap are among several of the competitions held on the vert ramp. Our favorite is the torturous “longest pump” competition where skaters pump at a certain height for as long as they can….until their legs give out! Brad Balie has the Kimberley record for 8 minutes 30 seconds!
