South Africa Photos Part 1

Words & photos: Rhino

Didn’t get enough with the magazine article, web videos, and yardsale? Well, here's some more South Africa stoke. We drove about 1,500 miles and skated everyday. One of the best trips ever with a sick crew. Check out some extra photos from the first half of the trip Johannesberg to Kimberley.

    Spitfire Wheels' "Ecuador Hellride" Video
    Old crusty spots separate the men from the boys. Parque de Carolinas in Quito, Ecuador has been there for 40 years. It ain't going nowhere. I took the best of '97 there and it went off—cops, broads, beers and busting. The next time I went 20 years later, the kids that grew up with the mag wanted some Eccy juice. Took the now dudes and, needless to say, Hellride was on, "Rocky Mountain Way" all the way. —Jake Phelps
