We’ve been waiting for this for ages. The Thrashers Resurrection in Pretoria!

The park is finally being resurrected, given a major overhaul and sommer a facelift of note. Thrashers is such an iconic place in Snor City. It was probably built with the Voortrekker Monument many moons ago, it has been there since the beginning of time. But, over the years, it was a bit neglected – people moved on from the skateboarding “fad” and became “boets” with their other “boets” – skateboarding sort of faded down for a bit. Only the faithful stayed true to the art with a few new faces popping up. But, after a few years of people getting tired of “boets” and their kak. People returned to the art, remembering why they did it in the first place. With that said, Thrashers is back!

This is the Thrashers Resurrection!

Die groot gebeurtenis gaan jou klap op 4 Maart 2017! Niks kan jou weghou van hierdie mamoerse skaatsplank dag en vibe nie. Nie net maak Thrashers weer ‘n naam nie, maar Puddy se Skate Shop maak oop op die ikoniese dag.

So, what’s in store for the day, you may ask. Here’s what they have to say:

• Live music
• Fully stocked bar
• Food stands
• Skate comps
• Keg jumps
• DJ’S
• 20K (ZAR) in skate comp prizes!!!
• FUZIGISH
• Ruff Majik
• Runaway Nuns
• The Tazers
• No rain!
• AND LOADS MORE!

Hierdie moet jy in jou dagbroek se soom skryf en op jou voorkop plak, want jy gaan once fokken uitmis indien jy nie daar is nie. Bring sommer ‘n traan in die oog as ons dink Thrashers gaan weer soos in die ou dae lyk… soortvan. Gaan haal jou skaatsplank uit jou motorhuis en stof die Toy Machine af. Jy kan (en gaan) plank op die dag.

Kom ons praat oor geld. Jy kan jou plek nou bespreek, volg net die link. Dit gaan jou nie platsak maak nie. Belowe!

Sien julle daar, sketters!

Big ups vir Bobbejaan, Arcade Empire en of-course-yes, Thrashers Skatepark for hosting this day. Much love from the Why Ed team.
