Peg plans to bring an extremely new and exciting event to the Durban Community. The event will consist of the fast growing and ever popular Longboard Skating. Peg plans to bring an event that will include the whole community and promote healthy living and alternate transport.
The event, “Peg Street Kings”, will be a one day downhill extravaganza. Races include professional categories where the best will be touching on 70Km/h on a skateboard through tight chicanes, to recreational leagues and even races for kids.
Expression session’s will blow away the crowds when riders enter a demarcated area at speeds up to 60km/h and proceed to do insane slides with their gloves skimming off the tar as they push the boundaries.
The event will be open to all riders of all ages, sizes and skill. Each of the 3 events will be broken into different age groups and divisions. We will start the age groups from Under 10 all the way up to open divisions and even a Masters division to attract all the dads and moms who still think they have it.
Top speeds of over 70km/h are expected, plus crazy slide action like this!
Entry forms will be placed on all social media outlets and the Peg website. Links will be placed on media partners’ web pages.
Entry forms can be filled in online & will automatically be received or skaters can print and fax them.
Payment can be made online on the website, through EFT or direct deposit.

Entry fee will be R100 and late Entry will be R150 on the day.
The Competition will be open to all skaters around the country and internationally.
All riders will be required to sign an indemnity in order to compete.
A medical response team will be present at the Event.
Public liability insurance will be taken out according to municipality stipulations.
All skaters taking part will receive a Goodie bag (Contents & value to be confirmed)
Road Closure has been scheduled to accommodate the competition.
All Competitors will be required to compete in a certified helmet.
This Event will require full road closure of the South Heading (Beach Heading) Side of Danville Avenue in Durban North, KwaZulu Natal. Danville Avenue has two separate roads both being dual carriage ways. By turning the North Heading (Away from Beach) road into a dual carriage way allowing traffic to flow in both directions it will alleviate the need for the South Heading road usage, thus allowing closure of the road.
For the residents we will have marshals at each entrance on the road to allow residents entry and exit into their properties in a respectable manner. Marshals will all be equipped with radio devices allowing constant communication channels to all parts of the road.
Race Safety: Hay bales will be situated on all dangerous sections on the road. All corners will have hay Bales on them to protect the riders and spectators. Trees and other immovable
obstacles will be covered with Hay bales to prevent injury to the riders and damage to the obstacles.
Each Rider will only be permitted to race once a full indemnity is signed. Strict safety rules will be enforced, each rider taking part in the event will require a certified helmet to be able to compete.
Paramedics will be at the event the entire day to handle any injuries that might occur.
Portable ablution facilities will be required at least two points on the road for spectators and Riders.
We would also bring in Food vendors to the event to provide the necessary nutrients for the riders and public.
Entertainment will be required in forms of a speaker and PA systems, MC’s and bands will add to the overall atmosphere by interacting with the crowd and keeping them involved with the happenings of the event and to keep the crowd entertained.
