Kimberley Diamond Cup 2014

October 2 - 5, 2014

Every year, we never get bored of holding baby lions. Add to that some of the world's best pro skateboarders competing for a quarter million in US cash and you've got a great reason to globetrot to Kimberley.

Last year Nyjah Huston blew the doors off and took home $100,000 USD. This year will be the 4th annual repeat of top pros and ams globetrotting to Kimberley, South Africa for a ripping weekend of skateboarding for top prize money.

Kimberley Diamond Cup is an “open” event. There is a spot in the Qualifiers waiting for every pro and top am that can make it down to Kimberley. We hope to see you there to join us for not just great skateboarding, but an amazing experience with the South African culture and people.
