The South African Gravity Racing Association is an organization that aims to promote all gravity racing disciplines as classified by the International Downhill Federation  (IDF) , and to provide opportunities to all South Africans to participate in Gravity Sports. It aims to encourage qualities of good sportsmanship and courage and to foster friendship between gravity racers in South Africa and around the world, whatever their backgrounds.

It is SAGRA’s current mission to organize a South African Race Series, with races around the country, so that growing numbers of local riders can participate and gain ranking points with both the IDF and SAGRA, and sponsors can receive regular media exposure. Part of the mission includes making it possible for SA riders to take part in the World Cup Series.

SAGRA is an organisation by skaters for skaters.
