Four friends – Khulu, Francesco, Charl and John – became our new friends on a Sunday and a public holiday. Summer was around the corner, but the temperature was a bit nippy for the beach. These guys had decided to head for Camps Bay to hang out on the beach and do some skateboarding. We asked if we could tag along. At first, they were somewhat skeptical because we wanted them as models. (Who wouldn’t be?) But we can be quite convincing and with a promise of a liquid salary, they agreed to meet us a little later. If you’re unfamiliar with Camps Bay, you should know that fancy restaurants, poolside hotels, and cafés line the Camps Bay boardwalk. The bold and beautiful patronize these places – sipping expensive drinks and watching sunsets. There’s a public beach on the other side of the boardwalk (the most popular in Cape Town), which makes for a divinely diversified crowd in that area. And our friends made it exciting as they triggered a bit of tension into the well-trafficked street.
