I just got back to Johannesburg after spending a fun long weekend in the town of Kimberley, South Africa. It’s a strange little town with a very diverse population, including 1 lone American… “Mike”, or as most people would call him, “Chinner”. Mike has been living out there since early last year and runs the Maloof Money Cup skate park while seeking shade from that African sun. If you ever get the time to head out there, you’ll find Mike at the Maloof Skate Plaza, towering over all the kids, and their parents for that matter! If he’s not busy with some contest or hanging out with the kids, he’s probably on his board, his uber wide board, perfect for the 7 foot tall man. Here are some photos I shot with Chinner enjoying his board.
