Converse Ultimate X 2023 welcomes you back to Cape Town’s V&A Waterfront, where it all kicked off in 2008. V&A’s Battery Park plays host to the biggest action sports event in Africa and we’re coming in hot with everything you love about the sport. Fat whips and even fatter paychecks.

It’s all about that old school. This year the event will feature brand activations, live performances, and giveaways. In addition to Ultimate X, fans can enjoy the BMX and Skate African champs. BMX Park and Skate Plaza formats as well female divisions across skateboarding events.

Catch some of the top international names in the game thrashing it out alongside our exceptional local talent. It’s happening and it’s happening big.

“A win is just a bonus, I’ll take this one home and I’ll cherish it forever. Ultimate X, I’ll come back next year and every year this event happens!” – Kevin Peraza 2022 Champ

The evolution of the action sports juggernaut leaves no ramp un-jumped and no ledge unwaxed. It is the constant pursuit of one perfect moment. A compound of athleticism and art. The merging of humans and machines.

Silent pioneers wake every morning, to attempt what’s impossible for the average being, in a relentless hunt for uncharted infrastructures. With every approach, with every failure, and every dislocation there is discovery. The discovery of something brand new that will soon be old. And the discovery of something old to be made brand new.

We going to hit you with all the mayhem you can handle at once.
