For the past 10 years, Hot Heels Africa has been bringing the thrill of downhill skateboarding to South Africa as a leg of the IGSA World Cup. Seeing that this event is older than your average third-grader, it should come as no surprise that the Official Hot Heels Africa 2012 Recap (crafted by Retroyspective) is a well-produced, well-filmed and well-put-together video that spans just about as much time as the average EP. Or for you youthz out there: one side of a cassette tape. (What? Still no clue? Imagine a 16MB iPod. Now press play. Yep. That’s how long this video lasts.) Long enough to sit back, relax, and eat some snax; Not quite long enough to air on television and add up to 30 minutes of programming (with commercials), though the production value is right on point! Have I mentioned the production value? The downhill skateboarding scene in South Africa is definitely #OnTheRise (as could be said for many places across the globe) and we can’t wait to get our eyes on more of the action to come. Keep up the great work, dudes and dudettes!
