VANS COUCH SURFING SOUTH AFRICA
British pals Sebastien Smart and James Parry alongside Adrien Toyon flew into Cape Town on a mission to conquer South Africa’s best spots. Their local guide? None other than South African hot newcomer Mikey February.
The crew is joined by local heroes and South African Vans “Brus” Shane Sykes & Vanilla the Gorilla aka Josh Redman forming one of the most eclectic casts of shredders you could ask for.
“It's always amazing to explore your home country with people for their first time. With a mix of some rad, creative and surf syked individuals you can't go wrong in South Africa. We surfed the east coast and the west coast, crashed cars, shared some beers, ate biltong and had an epic time with some epic vibes,” says Mikey February, Vans Surf Team.
“The Vans trip to SA was really fun..like all vans trips the focus is all on smiles rather than pressure and stress. Not gonna lie though, we had a couple of serious to extreme experiences, some life threatening one could say, but other than that, fun waves, fun times, fun people,” says Seb Smart, Vans Surf Team.
Well our trip was a blast full of emotions, sharing, taking care of each other, from day one until the end of it.. starting with our big session at Dungeons, with the addition of fun little tubes up the coast ending up at J-bay. We were waiting for that swell to come, luckily enough J-bay woke up a bit and we got some until the last day. After all when I think about it, to share some of these moments with good friends is definitely worth it, I want more in the future,” says Adrien Toyon, Vans Surf Team.
