About the Transkei Cowboys

About the Transkei Cowboys

Transkei, loosely translates to “The Place Over The River”.
So Why The Kei?
The Cowboys want to promote the Wild Coast and all it has to offer for the betterment of the people, heritage, culture and landmarks that makes it unique. We realize that we are just 3, very simple voices, but with the power of a lens, a story and a ton of adventure, we will hear from those who call this place home. With a combined total of 19 years in the film, photography, surfing and adventure industries; Bruce, Tagan & a bunch of rad guests make up the Transkei Cowboys. With on-camera
fun, insightful how-to’s and local stories to last a lifetime, the Transkei Cowboys will bring you, episode by episode, a unique look into South Africa’s Wild Coast!

Bruce has spent 90% of his life within 1km of the Ocean, so its no surprise that everything he does is inspired by it.
