WHERE THE SETS NEVER STOP ROLLING IN

SOUTH AFRICAN SURFING is flush with a myriad of people with tales to tell, waves to ride and ideas to explore.

Kitchen Window is the conduit through which these stories, waves and ideas will reach those interested in looking a little deeper into the heart of South Africa surfing.

THE BREAK, Kitchen Window is about right slap in the middle of the South African surfing map. A place where a whole new generation of wave riders are engaging with the ocean for the first time. So the name seems appropriate for many reasons, some of which will be revealed as we unfold our stories and pictures in the future.

 

WHERE THIS VENTURE GOES, how it goes, well nobody knows. Our promise is that we’ll put our heart and soul into each and every offering and we’ll never be influenced by commercial interests.

You can expect the same authenticity, integrity and delivery of the products that you find in our shop.

 

SEAN THOMPSON

When I first viewed these pictures from Sean , two thoughts sprung to mind. Firstly, Sean, Neil Bradfield, Grant Scholtz and Fabian Coetzer have a distinct advantage over the rest of the surf photogs who don’t live and work in Cape Town. Their work depicts the region so explicitly that I’m considering moving south. I’m missing out, big time. The second thought is that their pictures as a collective deserves high praise. Kitchen Window is still a puppy and it will grow, but we recognize that these photographers are making us look good. So how can we fail. Sean’s pics are so diverse and interesting and he uses light like a magic wand.
