The Cabrinha Crew get Naughty in Cape Town
Keahi De Aboitiz is one of them, and where Keahi goes, fireworks usually follow. That man has a fascination with explosives that attracts him to beach bonfires like a pyromaniac to a lighter. So put Nick Jacobsen, James Boulding, Liam Whaley and Graham Howes on a beach in Cape Town together, and you know there’s going to be some action both on, and off the water.

There’s more to come though, on June 1st, so check back then!
