Our homies at BFam put on a seriously rad skate art exhibition at The Pit a week or so ago and One Dog Chicken made this equally rad video from the night.
30 skated boards have been painted by 30 artists and will be exhibited this Friday, 1 June at The Pit in Bree Street, Cape Town.
Make sure you don’t miss this one!

MUSIC SAVED MY LIFE (MSML) is a project started by Verb as a way of connecting creative people who are excited about making their art and supporting a good cause at the same time. It makes sense that a brand like Verb would be inspired by music; the innate and shared passion that is found so strongly in so many people – not just musicians. Verb is, after all, about creativity, with skateboarding as a metaphor for that.
This December the Journey Through South Africa Tour will be going through Cape Town, Durban and Joburg distributing new and used skate stuff to kids who can’t afford their own. The tour features German skateboarders Louis Taubert and Niklas Speer von Cappein as well as local ripper Justus Kotze.
“Louis Taubert is undoubtedly one of the best skaters in Germany this year and could win almost every contest in which he participated. And he has carved out on the thick banger bus tour and was generally represented with the best footage ever. In the next time it could be somewhat quiet at Louis, as he sets out to explore South Africa for six months. But of course he does not disappear without saying goodbye to yet befitting. Here is his farewell clip from Cologne Cape is 686 plus a few words to his adopted country.”
The google-translated version of Louis’ farewell the blurb from skateboard magazine.
In January we will be running a full Tour Diary on www.revolution-daily.com where you can see who got what and how the goodness was shared across South Africa. They’ll be hitting up skateparks in each town and need your help to share the stoke and get a ton of kids skating. Revolution has setup drop-off depots at all the stores around the country and are taking in boards, trucks, wheels, shoes… whatever you’ve got to give.
