Flat Ground League is a series of skateboarding events designed to suite many communities with no or less facilities such as skateboards, parks and even public awareness. As the name suggests, the Flat Ground League doesn’t need an all expensive venue! Flat Ground League needs only a flat space where skaters come freely and compete in series of Game of Skates set into Jams with Semi Final and Final at last.
These underground events are taking wave into the face of African Skateboarding. The Flat Ground League – Skateboarding is run by the African Skateboarding Diary. The first stop was in Dar es salaam, Tanzania on May 27th 2017 of which an 18 yrs old Abubakar Amour from Zanzibar Island won with a total of 60 score points against other 11 skateboarders. This winning made Abubakar to be the first winner among many other to come across Africa who shall have an all expensive paid ticket to attend the continental Flat Ground League Finals in February/April 2018.
Now the second stop has been confirmed to be Luanda, Angola. The Africa Skateboarding Diary shall work various local skate organizations and teams under the umbrella of Angola Skateboarding Union (ASU) to deliver at once all Angolan Skateboarders to this event. The negotiation on table are currently on deciding a viable location.
The other key players in Angola shall be the Angolan Skateboarding, Desart Skate Crew and Kalemba Radicals. Kalemba Radicals have a long history of organizing various extreme events in Angola over the past 5 years and are considered to be an important supporter and collaborator.
In addition the Flat Ground League is powered by TheBoardr Scoring App, World Skateboarding Federation, African Skate Project as well as Bun and Bunee Skateboards.
