Following on from my last post here is a Pantsula outfit from Soweto called The Perfect Storm. I’ve just got to say I’m a huge fan of Pantsula. The outfits, the moves and general attitude I’ve experienced each time has made it a firm favourite culture for me. You can follow them on Facebook
Red Bull Beat Battle took place on 31 May 2014 at Walter Sisulu Hall in Soweto. (For a full report on the event click here)
I shot a few pre event crew portraits a month before and here is the first to share. Meet Supreme I Crew who are a Hip Hop outfit hailing from Soweto.

I’m suffering from city shock as I go through these panoramic cropped shots I snapped off the other morning in the Transkei before Lee Ann, my sister-in-law’s wedding to long time partner Justin Saunders. We stayed at Swell Eco Lodge which is where you should book your next holiday, seriously. Note to self: I really need to get down there for a photo only mission!
And to end off I offer you “Self Portrait with Pig”
On Thursday myself and a few others headed out to Dungeons in the hopes that the surf would turn on during the three hour window that was spotted for the morning. A 5.5m swell at 16s was predicted and there were hopes for some solid surf following the previous Friday’s perfect conditions. This was my first time out there. Unfortunately the swell direction was just off but that didn’t stop the core group of charges from surfing. Just goes to show how much work and dedication these guys have. They’re warriors not athletes in my book.
