I did a semi-serious interview with a national TV news channel about a some current issues and the level of Skateboarding in South Africa. Still working on getting a copy, it has to be classic, a few cats from all over told me about seeing it air. I'll get my hands on it for sure...
The Boyz' did us proud...
Here is a short video of some of the skateboard handrail highlights...

I played in DBN last week, it was a really sick gig. I opened up for the City Bowl Mizers at Club Origin. Skullcandy SA hooked up a bunch of rad promo ish to give away (the stuff went faster than a Gorilla Biscuit song). Rumor has it even Poppa Dukes showed up for a bit during my set and jammed out in the back.

RVCA South Africa recently put on a Retro Surf Jam with the help of Vudu'Surf and most of the Lands' Crew. It was a blast and had a really big turnout for such a low key surf/beach event. Big up to all the cats who showed up to see what was going down...

Things have been very analog lately, so the post have been lacking a bit. Have no fear, the goods are coming, I was up to some 'serious' active duty; missioning from the Wes-Kus to Northern Zulu Land in less then 3 weeks. My Dad was in South Africa for flash visit and I had not seen him in over 3 years so we did as much as we could in the short time he was here. I will be posting tons of stuff over the next 2 week so don't fret. For now, Peep this.....
