Khule Ngubane and friends spend a day skateboarding in Hout Bay with blunt for Fuel TV
The new blunt short YouTube skateboarding video clip ‘A Day in Hout Bay’, featuring Durban’s Khule Ngubane and Cape Town’s Moses Adams and Karl Van Antwerp at Eyethu Skate Park and a couple of local street spots, is up on our new YouTube channel.
The video (above) is a bonus track from another short video project created by blunt for Fuel TV’s South African Action Sports show, ‘Africa Now’.
Directed and filmed by Phoenix Jurgens, the main mission for the day was to film the segment for the latest episode of the show on Fuel TV about blunt magazine’s return to the scene, using both contemporary skating and sick archive footage from blunt videos back in the day.
In the Fuel TV clip (below), blunt owner and founding editor Miles Masterson (bluntEd) describes the birth of the mag in Hout Bay in 1997; how it became the voice of extreme sports, alternative music and street culture in South Africa – and how it has come full circle to the present day and is being run independently from the valley again.
The Fuel TV insert is in the same episode as coverage from the recent Kimberley Diamond Cup skate comp and ULT.X BMX and skate contests.
It features iconic covers, layouts and photos from the mag over the years, as well as several skateboarding, freestyle biking, music and other video clips from the blunt vault, including epic events such as the Red Bull Downhill Extreme (DHX), High Voltage expo and Woodstock Festivals and more.
The clip also has current downhill skating from local Daniel Meerburg at the legendary Tarragona in Hout Bay and a couple tricks from Khule and Moses at Eyethu Skate Park.
Check it out, the blunt segment starts at 22:50.
‘A Day in Hout Bay’ on YouTube
On the other hand, the ‘bonus track’ clip ‘A Day in Hout Bay’– now on up our new YouTube channel – features bonus footage from the full day’s filming with over a minute of straight up skating highlights of Khule, Moses and Karl in the park and at a few Hout Bay street spots.
The soundtrack is a cover of Iggy Pop’s ‘Candy’ by old school Durban band The AK Massive.
blunt was stoked to meet Khule and spend the day with the crew. Despite the challenge of a howling South Easter the skaters threw down a variety of clean tricks, the day ending with a sick line from Khule behind the local library.
blunt was also stoked to see Moses after all these years and show him the three blunt covers he starred on back in the day. Many memories came flooding back over a few beers in the aftermath of a solid day’s skateboarding.
Thanks to Khule, Moses and Karl for their dedication to getting enough footage on the day despite the kak weather and local skaters Daniel Meerberg, Ben Bing and Kola Cohen for their support.
A big shout out to Kai Linder and Markus Museler from Africa Now for publishing our video insert on Fuel TV and Phoenix Jurgens for setting it all up. Thanks also to Raion Streetwear for the Uber fares.
blunt mag is planning plenty more new video projects in the future and will also be adding more archive content to our channel, so please be sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel and hit the bell to be notified when new videos are uploaded.
Peace. – bluntEd
