No, Zoo York isn't a band. For those who live beneath rocks (or don't care about skate culture), the New York-based streetwear company has long sponsored a team of professional and amateur skaters, and is now taking a select few of them halfway across the globe for its first-ever South African tour.
Zered Bassett (pictured above), Forrest Kirby, and Brandon Westgate will be joined by Zoo York team manager Seamus Deegan. The group will hit skate parks and shops in Durban and Johannesburg for autographs, signings, giveaways, and demos. Photographer Sean Cronan and videographer RB Umali will document the trip, and a podcast of the tour is slated for June.
