Moses Mabhida Stadium was excited to host the first ever Red Bull Unlocked Skate event at the People’s Park stairs on the Sunday 11 August 2013. This unique day gave participants access to an area which would ordinarily be out of bounds.
The Red Bull Unlocked Skate event was judged by some of the most esteemed skaters in the community – Andrew Morck, Ken-Rae James and Editor at Session Skateboarding Magazine, Brendan Body.
Capetonian Moses Adams impressed the judges to win after proving throughout the competition that he was hungry for the win by landing some of the most insane tricks of the day. He fought off the competition with his sensational final run which included a varial heel flip, a nollie flip and afront side flip.
“We never get to skate somewhere like this” said Adams. The surface is so nice to skate on – no cracks or rocks and just so smooth. Dlamini was really skating well and I’m just glad I did my best and was able to win.”
Brendan Body commented on the skill on display at the event: “The level of talent was super high and one of the highest I’ve seen in a competition in a long time. With the event taking place at a street spot with the stairs and the inclusion of the hub and rail we saw some of the best street skaters in a setup that worked for them and their skills.”
