The 30 Deep Street Meet put the goodness in Good Friday. ±30 BMXers, 1 MTBer, 1 Skateboarder & 1 Rollerblader hit the streets of Cape Town.

We met at H-Street & hung around warming up waiting for everyone to get there. Off to Thibault via an empty fountain. The Big 4 saw lots of action, Moe, Werner, Kevin & Nic V were throwing down. I rolled a little too & by the time I got the cam out only Moe & Werner were left.

We made our way toward Greenpoint & the next spot was closed, so moved on to the centre of the Greenpoint Circle. Lots of manuals up the curved ledge. Werner had it on lock with no handers out.

Next was the Greenpoint Library. Small ledges, banks & rails, something for everyone. Standout trick there was Johan 180ing over a hip high rail with a 6ft drop down. I couldn't set up quick enough, so missed the shot, but will see if I can get hold of one. Also a few attempts at the rail, but unfortunately none pulled.

The Put-Put (mini golf) humps were next & everyone flying at them & drawing quite a crowd. That was the end of the day for most, but I wanted to get a shot of Kevin, Moe & myself on the Big 4 in the lower light, so we popped in to Thibault for business & were off.

Thanks to James B for organising these street sessions, the scene is looking good with lots of young rippers & a great turnout!
