I’m not sure why there isn’t a bigger deal made of this… we should all be jumping in cars and going on a roadtrip to Kimberley this weekend! The Kimberley Diamond Cup has been referened in media as the “Grand Prix” of the skating world… over R5MILLION worth of prize money will be doled out over the next few days. It might be a little late to make a mission to the K-Hole, but the event will be webcast LIVE on their official site: www.kimberleydiamondcup.com on Saturday, Sept. 28 and Sunday, Sept. 29! Supersport are also going to be broadcasting some of the bigger events over the weekend.
It is just INSANE that this is the largest single event prize purse in skateboarding! The winner of the Street Championships will receive a $100,000 cash prize. The winner of the Vert and Big AirChampionships will receive a $60,000 cash prize. I don’t have to do the conversions for you to understand how much money that is.
