While the boys from Orlando where here, they came to visit Dirty Habits and The Cape Town Liquid force/ Hyperlite team. I somehow don’t think they knew what they were in for when the booked their tickets.

What was meant to be a week of sipping cocktails on Table Mountain turned into a week of Great white shark diving, penguin chasing, lion hugging , car ramping, firework banging and table smashing shenanigans. It all went surprising smooth, considering these boys were under the same roof for a week. Well… apart from Kevin setting Jimmy’s face and hair alight in the bar with an toilet aerosol can. Not to forget Watson getting the Dirty Habits truck stuck on an traffic island and us having to dig it out for 45mins at 4am. Luckily for Kevin, he escaped with 4 boxes a pizza hot and left us to deal with the cops.

The fact that we were all sleep deprived and the guys probably accumulated 19 hours of sleep over 6 days didn’t help much. Luckely for Jarrod from LF who dropped 4k on professional fireworks for our private beach display, helped Craig Egyenburger and myself keep their eyes  wide open for another night. Totally epic week though and what a bunch of legends. Looking forward to their next trip to Africa to finish up the Cape Town bucket list.

Wakeboarding with Smoke Flares and Flashes

Flares and Flashes.

After seeing Bruce Irons in a glowing barrel with flares strapped to his board, we’ve been dying to strap some onto a wakeboard. The only problem is at R250 a flare (that last 30 seconds) and a photographer sitting on a boat in pitch darkness, 200m away; the logistics become a night mare.

We headed to Blue Rock Cable Park with one of Cape Towns best Photographers, Bianca Asher and a Nice Budget from Liquid Force Cape Town and ofcourse some of the best cable riders in CT. Bianca Managed to get these amazing images in a very limited 1 hour window. We are all stoked with the outcome and the surreal experience.

Cape Town Cable wakeboarders: Craig Eygenberger, Gregor Reichmuth, Sky Keller, Graham Howes, Candice Bacon, Sean Bacon, Craig Howes, Hjalmar Larsen, Nick Cattelan,

After all it was a proper shot in the dark… literally

PALLETS – Wake video

So you thought you’d need a ton of cash to build mean kickers and rails… well, it turns out that you just need to be a Badass rider and smash some old stacked up wooden pallets… like a boss!

Winter Rail Sessions: Jason Colborne, Gregor & Dominik Reichmuth.

The South African wake scene definitely quiets down in the winter months, but the die-hards, the pro’s and the wannabe’s will be on the water come rain or shine.

Winter is wet, cold and windy, but perfect for them as it keeps the crowds away, which keeps the ques short and the water glassy; every riders dream. Here’s the latest video of Jason Colborne, Gregor & Dominik Reichmuth making the most of winter.

Winter Rail Sessions – 2012 from Jason Colborne on Vimeo.

“So I was injured all summer and finally got back onto the water during winter, been hitting allot of rails to get back into it. My sister and brother got cameras so I could finally film some of our shredding, so here is a little edit I put together of the footage we been taking at our local spot Blue Rock – South Africa.”
