They leave behind hundreds of very inspired kids and skateboarding enthusiasts as well as the RVCA South Africa skate team of Yann Horowitz and Khuli Dlamini, who will continue with local and international projects for the rest of the year.

"This tour has been the best," said Greyson Fletcher. "Yann and Khulu showed us around, took us to the good spots and we got to go on a safari. It ruled, and now we gotto go back home and we're all bummed."

South Africa delivered for these Pro Skaters, with all of them impressed with the wealth of excellent skate spots available countrywide, as well as the humble yet talented local skate crew.
