Exploring the Golden Mile with Converse

The Converse Cons South Africa crew embarked on a road trip in November 2016 from Johannesburg to Durban with a quick stop at Indigo in the valley of 1000 hills.

Unfortunately, Durban’s Golden Mile that’s famed for sun, sand and sea was actually a bit of a washout, as it rained every day for the five days the crew explored the east coast.

Kyle Trusky, Taylor Sturgess, Suhail Kader and Justus Kotze weren’t going to let the rain get in the way though, and they made the most of their time on the east coast.

Check out the video below and grab the latest copy of Session Skateboarding Magazine to read the full story.
