The tour starts with a 30 minute fun and exciting skateboarding lesson where you'll learn the basics of skating in a safe and fun way - if you've never skated before, that's fine, we want you and we'll teach you!

Once we get the basics down, we skate and explore the Maboneng Precinct - one of the Top 12 coolest neighbourhoods in the world (Forbes, 2018) - for 30 to 40 minutes and learn about how this young and exciting neighbourhood inspired a new inner city rejuvenation in Johannesburg!

After Maboneng, we jump into an Uber which takes us across town to Marshalltown where we skate around learning about the city's beginnings and history using old buildings as reference points while also learning about it's current developments and culture through the eyes of a skater!

The tour winds down in Newtown, the former art and cultural precinct of Johannesburg, where we skate along lesser-known landmarks, graffiti lined walls and buildings asking "What happened here and what's happening here?"!

At the end of our 3 hours, transport will take us back to Maboneng where you can enjoy and engage with the amazing people that make this city!

Come explore the city through the eyes of a skater!

I grew up skateboarding and have been exploring inner-city Johannesburg for most of my life — both these things are passions of mine that are sometimes misunderstood but I want to change that. I started my business, City Skate Tours, in order to share my love for skateboarding and then use that to question and provide a unique experience of the city through a skater's eye.

Johannesburg is a beautiful city full of contrasts which often leads to misunderstanding and confusion...come join me and let's have a conversation about my city, skateboarding and how they shape my experiences in the city!

Her skal du være

The tour is all about exploring and understanding Johannesburg's development from a factual and skater's perspective. We'll skate in Maboneng, which represents a new intepretation of inner-city living, visit the traditional home of skateboarding in the inner city, while contrasting that with the city's historical legacy which began in Marshalltown, where the city began in 1886. By the end, you'll have a fuller understanding of the City of Gold!

Had a great time skating the city with Ayanda! I was very much a first-time skater, but Ayanda was a super patient and helpful teacher, and the time he spent before we headed out teaching me the basics and letting me practice really made me feel confident. It was amazing to see the city from the perspective of a skater, and we stopped at plenty of different historical and local neighbourhood spots. Ayanda was a wealth of insight and knowledge wherever we went, and taught me a lot about the city that I live in.

The tour was fantastic and Ayanda was a great host. He has a rare level of insight when it comes to Joburg CBD and he can speak to the history of different neighborhoods and urban spaces in a very unique way, especially considering that he is a long-time resident of these areas. Cruising through the city on a skateboard was a fantastic way to experience it. He made is feel safe and comfortable at all points, and was a patient teacher to the novices! Would definitely recommend

Perfect combination of insightful and eloquent hosts, patient and persistent skating tuition (I had basically never done it before!) and a beautiful sunny Joburg morning. I really enjoyed the tour and fully recommend it to anyone wanting to get out and about in the city and see some sights that you wouldn't take in on the main tourist trail.

Had an incredible experience with Ayanda! I have never skated before but it really didn’t matter. Ayanda gave me protective gear and taught me the basics of skating and let me practice a bit and off we went! The tour was equal parts fun skating and interesting talks about the surrounding area given by Ayanda. Ayanda is a wonderful and accommodating host who has a passion for skating and people. It was a once in a life time experience to skate down Fox street. I highly recommend this tour by Ayanda.

Skating Maboneng and the city was such great fun! Ayanda is very passionate about skateboarding, and he has vast knowledge about Maboneng and as well as the city of Johannesburg. Even as a Jo'burger, I learned quite a whole lot from this experience. Ayanda is very patient, and a great teacher! I had absolutely no previous skating experience, but I was soon skating over hills in downtown Johannesburg! In addition, Ayanda is always there to hold your hand and to ensure that you are always comfortable. I cannot wait to do it again!

Yes I skated in Joburg! No I have not been skating before! The skate-the-city-tour was great fun! Ayanda and the two other guides make sure you feel comfortable at all times. As local skaters they know best where to go and take you to the good spots. And don’t worry about traffic, on the weekend the town is not that busy. The tour will reach every ones needs: if you are more experienced and want to go faster or play around you are free to do that, if you don‘t feel as stable on your board you‘ll be given a helping hand. You feel that skating is Ayandas passion and I easily caught the spark. Next to the skating, Ayanda is sharing his view and toughts about the places you go, like for example Maboneng district with its vibrant urban life. It was ineresting to hear Ayandas personal opinion and visions how a city like Joburg could/ and is buliding up districts where people of all different cultures and social backgrounds are coming together as a community. Moreover Ayanda is very open for all of your questions and own views. Not to forget: The great streetart you‘ll pass! I heartily recommend you to spend those three hours!

Flere tips

Johannesburg and skateboarding are often described as "dangerous" and "no-go" zones...allow me to challenge these ideas!

Dette må du ta med

Water and light refreshments i.e. fruits (there are some shops along the way where guests can buy light snacks

A bag if you'd like to skate hands-free or to keep your belongings in - the guides are happy to carry your bag for you so you can skate without any distractions!
