Something that surprised me was the number of woman who I saw competing in the event. Skateboarding, and specifically downhill racing, is traditionally such a guy thing that it's to be expected that one would find almost exclusively guys competing. But it really does seem as though a good number of woman in Cape Town are getting into the sport!
I'd really like to see more woman take part, so if you're keen, visit SAGRA's website for more information or contact me and I'll put you in contact with a few pros. They'll have you racing in no time! :)
