Earlier this year, the Thrasher crew packed their bags and left SF for 2 weeks of Skateboarding, beer, and red meat in South Africa. Cape Town based photographer Sam Clark guided Ronnie Sandoval, SOTY 2011 Grant Taylor, Cory Kennedy, Raven Tershy, Pat McClain, Raney Beres, Thasher photographer Rhino and filmer P Stone around the motherland looking for epic spots and good times along the way. Rhino sent us some of the photos that weren’t run in the mag, here’s a few of those along with the 5 videos that went out on the Thrasher site back in June.
This was the crew:
