The 2nd KDC Grand Slam of the 2016 season went down at Midway Mayhem at the Kumba Skate Plaza and brought out several local skaters and bus fulls & car loads of skaters from around the country alike for another incredible weekend of skateboarding and camping.
As a regional qualifier event for the Kimberley Diamond Cup main event in October, wildcard entries were awarded to the top placing team in the Rider Cup division to advance to the Rider Cup Championships. Cape Town rippers Team 20SK8 consisting of Shuaib Philander, Ryan Naidoo, Toufeeq Raubenheimer, and Bradley Henry ended up pulling through and earning the R10,000 cash and the qualifying spot. Congrats, guys!
