“Moses really impressed everyone today and he is really on a different level as far as his skating. His 360 flip over the table was really impressive” – Puddy Zwennis (one of the judges, alongside Wandile Msomi and Luke Jackson)

“There were a lot of really great skaters who made it tough today, but my biggest competition of the day was Dlamini. When I got to the final, I really had to think on my feet.” – Moses

“To be honest I really didn’t know who was going to win, because the standard was really high. I had to try mix it up and do some different tricks to stand out.” – Moses

Moses also won the Vans ‘Best Line’ contest which was awarded for the best line throughout the day. Pretoria’s Shaun Burger won the Skullcandy ‘Best Trick’ contest on the kicker to picnic table with a nollie hardflip to manual.
