Saturday played host to our first official VANS sample sale which ran for 4 hours of the day, seeing people anxiously awaiting for the doors to open to get there hands on some fresh VANS threads and kicks. There were loads of happy faces as customers dug deep and found great bargains.

The Pit launched there amazing music compilation album with the help of Red Bull Studios and there was a great exhibition of photos from different photographs through out the year, which was made into a fantastic zine.

The day was coming to a close and the night was creeping in and that meant it was time to kick off the VANS annual bowl contest. Many of SA’s top transition skaters made it through to battle it out to see who could claim the top spot.

The night was not over yet and the crowd wasn’t going anywhere as they waited for The Make-Overs and Death Panthers to take to the mini ramp and belt out some pure metal! The awesome guys from Roasting Records followed next up on the wheels of steel and helped take the after party into the early hours of the morning.
