Founder / CEO of Dirty Habits Graham Howes founded Dirty Habits when returning to Cape Town after competing on the Kite Tour. Dirty Habits was initialy a community platform to showcase Cape Towns local talent in Kiteboarding and other board sports, as the community grew so I began photographing the local riders By 2012 Dirty Habits reputation had grown so much that he begun filming and photographing the international professional athlete's who came to Cape Town to train and explore the county. By summer 2013 Dirty Habits crew became infamous in the Cape Town extreme sports scene, throwing big parties, performing stunts and filming jackass style video's with professional athletes. Graham has become the 'go-to' guy in Cape Town when riders come to Cape Town. Along with his 'Crew' have hosted and filmed video's with some of the world top athletes and personalities, including Nitro Circus's Erik Roner, Ruben Lenten, Shawn Watson, Arron Hadlow, Kevin Langeree, Nick Jacobsen and more. In 2014 Dirty Habits launched a clothing label so that people, friends and the crew, could be identified and be part of a community/ family of like minded people In 2015, Dirty Habits opened a wakeboard park in Cape Town, South Africa's 1st twin tower wake park, just 20 minutes from the famous Kite Beach. The Dirty Habits Playground was established so the Dirty Habits crew could have a home to push the limits, party, progress, perform stunts and hang out together.
