Following on from their ‘Well Travelled‘ series, Herschel Supply showcase how versatile and useful their products are by following the progress of Californian based surfer and travel photographer Nate Zoller. Follow along on his trip to West Africa accompanied with his words and photos below…

I didn’t see myself traveling to West Africa before the Roark Revival crew invited me. It seemed too far, too disease-ridden and too dangerous. But when the itinerary was thrown on my lap, I vaccinated and went. For the next week we surfed, rode camels, ate seafood and spoke in broken French. Everything went smoothly and I left the country wanting more.

I was walking through a Rasta woodcarving village and heard some hoots from above me.

Check the look on that guy’s face. He is stoked.
