So you can't really go to Africa without seeing some wildlife, although life is pretty wild in the streets of Durban I've come to find. Kinda like the dodgiest part of TJ, but a lot lot worse. People get mugged for their crappy cellphones, babies get snatched, and virgins get sacraficed...all in a days work for the thugs around here...

Alan Laz was our trusty game guide..."Just keep the Peroni's flowing and I'll find the game"

My first sighting of wild animals in the bush

Probably my favorite animals in this crazy land. They just laze around all day.

These hippos kill more people than any other animal around...sneaky bastards

Silly little cat was just playing in the middle of the road

Then it let out a little meow and we realized it wasn't playing

I guess that means elephants crossing

The guy in the truck lives in this place and he wasn't about to budge for no elephant

I budged in my pants when this elephant charged us

Crazy striped horse

These things are so pre-historic looking its unbelievable...I'm now a believer

Pumba from the Lion King has an entourage

Toys R' Us spokesmodels

Pretty cheetah with pretty cubs

Such cute little furballs

WaveHouse Durban Comp Pro Finals

The level of riding over here is way higher than in San Diego. I guess having this water fountain for four years helps...

Ultimate Booze Cruise

Got the wonderful opportunity to go on one of those cruises to Ensenada for a company holiday. What a feast of lobster and drunken debauchery that was... In case you didn't know, the menu they give you on the cruise is more of like guide-lines. You're free to order 5 lobster or 6 potatoes or whatever. Some people got a little carried away with this information. Also if they send you to the brig, their version of the on board jail, they'll still make you (the best) sandwiches and serve you beer! It was my first time and it was a blast. Thank you Meeks <3 style="margin: 0px auto 10px; display: block; text-align: center; cursor: pointer;" src="" alt="" id="BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5146858169583760130" border="0">It's about the view.

Happy and polite.

If you want to stoke chicks out in Mexico, just dance with them wearing a mask.
They love that shit.
Meeks got hungry so we...
went to the strip club!
At first the club made him sad, but then he got a happy ending.

WaveHouse Durban

WaveHouse Durban is pretty sick. Having both a left and a right give these Saffas a big advantage to us in the SD with just the left. Check these highlights from the semis of a comp that happened a few days ago...

Flew down to Ecuador to check up on the South American ShoresCrew. Things are a little different in Ecuador. ShoresCrew down there is more of an import/export title than a documentation of debauchery like it is here.
Top floor of the office.
ShoresCrew Ecuador meetings look a little different than in SoCal.
Round table.
The Basilica took over 100 years to build.
It is still used as a Catholic church today.

Hey... get out from under my building!
