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.
