There are 2 main events where you can get involved:

(There will be a meet and greet at Baseline Skate Shop afterwards – for over 18s)
Saturday 13 December
The main event is on at Salesians in Greenpoint (Corner of Somerset Road and Chiappini Street).
CONS have collaborated with Woodies ramps to build a special obstacle. Influenced by the shape of Table Mountain. The obstacle is free and open to all.
There will be a video workshop in association with AV Skateboarding. You’ll have a unique opportunity to try your hand at filming skateboarding and some of Europe’s finest will help you do it.
There will be a skate jam in association with Nebula (Skateboarding Youth Development). It’s a game of SK8 between crews, so bring your mates and join the jam.
There will be a very special photography workshop with highly acclaimed Swedish skate photographer Nils Svensson. Nils will be on hand to give advice and personally teach you about professional skate photography. The Euro ambassadors will be skating and provide you with the perfect opportunity to learn how to shoot skateboarding. The photography workshop is open to all, including instagramers. @theworldsyoungestman is spearheading the instameet. Whether you have a DSLR or an iPhone, pull-in!
