Kent Lingeveldt, skateboarder, skateboard shaper and owner of Alpha Longboards in Cape Town, is a good friend of Mami Wata. We’ve worked on two projects together, a Mami Wata X Alpha Longboards collab, which led Kent to make the exclusive, limited edition skate longboards for the Mami Wata Harper Sliders project. This profile film explores Kent’s surfing life and the relationship between the 1960’s longboard he surfs and the hardwood skate longboards that he shapes.
The track on the film is ‘Kid on the Block’ made by Collin Venge. Originally from Chitungwiza, Zimbabwe, when Collin isn’t making music he's slinging coffees at Deluxe on Buitenkant Street in Cape Town. He makes Kent’s daily 08h10 Americano.
The film was shot and edited by Ross Hillier.
