Jack Tauney 18 - TTRide African Road Trip

The African Road trip was the perfect introduction to the 'surf lifestyle' for six weeks. We met loads of really amazing people and got to surf in some sick locations. My favourite stop was Coffee Bay for the warmer water and surfing three times a day, even if it did mean early wake ups! J-Bay and Durban were also pretty awesome. Hopefully I'll be back before too long...
