In December 2014 Converse CONS brought European team riders David Stenstrom (Sweden), Remy Taveira (France) and Jerome Campbell (England) to Cape Town, South Africa. Alongside them were Swedish photographer Nils Svensson and team manager Neil Chester. The crew escaped the cold winter up north for a few long hot summer days at the end of the world. They came to skate the city and interact with the locals. The following pages document a week of skateboarding and exploration in the city of Cape Town and surrounding areas on the Cape Peninsula.
