Pro Skater promotes Cayman

Postby KarenS » Mon Apr 17, 2006 7:45 am

From Cayman Net News: "Kids in the Cayman Islands will have the opportunity to learn tricks from one of the best skateboarders around, and be featured on Fuel TV which airs in 18 million homes across the USA and hundreds of other countries in the Caribbean (including the Cayman Islands), Latin America and Europe.

Pro skater Mike Vallely will be conducting a skate camp at the Black Pearl Skate Park in Grand Harbour from 19 to 22 April for kids of all ages. Footage from the camp will be used in Vallely’s TV show Drive: Notes From The Wilderness, a half-hour show which chronicles the skater’s experiences on the road as he explores the people, places, and issues defining skateboarding and youth culture. In addition, Vallely will talk about the history of the Black Pearl Skate Park, his interactions with the people in Cayman, as well as other aspects of island life. One entire segment of the show will be dedicated to educating people on where Cayman is located and providing interesting facts about the islands.

'When parents are making vacation plans, they are heavily influenced by their children because we all know that if the kids do not enjoy their vacation spot, the family will not be returning.

When kids and teenagers see this TV show which promotes the beautiful Cayman Islands and all it has to offer, they are going to close the deal by persuading their parents to visit. This is a win-win situation for everyone!'

Fuel TV is offered in WestStar’s Sports and Info package and airs on Channel 138 for cable subscribers.

For more information or to sign up for the camp call 947.4161 or email Kevin on"
