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.

1/16/2018These Masher edits are about more than the skating in front of the lens, they’re also about the man holding the camera and blazing through the bowls at mach speed. Hell yeah, Gregson!

12/31/2017Some people can make you smile just by sittin’ next to them. Preston had that juice that made any flat tire fun. This dude was a TV show that was constant comedy. After the Bust or Bail in Atlanta, he got knocked out at the Bell telephone banks and we came up with a TV show that wrote itself, “Cookin’ With A Concussion.” His never-give-up, rev-it-up attitude will make me smile whenever I hear his name. His energy will never die. Go outside and enjoy it. Life is way too short. —Jake Phelps
12/27/2017Preston grew up in the sticks, filming and skating with his friends like they were Skater of the Year. From rails to gaps, the Big Dog did it all. Here's a blast from the past that shows knowing how to skate makes you a better filmer. Dude ripped. We miss you. —Jake Phelps
12/25/20172017 was a bad year for skaters dying. Between the Rock and the Big Dog, I get sour every day. Anyways, when you die you ride forever. 1997 X Games vert doubles and Tom Boyle needed a partner. Preston was always down. Vert is hard; these dudes were granite and they went for it. Last place? Who cares. Let's see you do it! —Jake Phelps
