"Dan Drehobl was the lucky dude with the golden ticket"

by Schmitty

Warning: If you want to see skateboarding, do not enter! The following could be very hazardous to your mind, and more than likely will provoke you into being an anonymous shit-talking celebrity (aka: Jealous). However, if you're bored and are interested in what skateboarders do on a Caribbean island when it's too hot to skate, you may enter at your own risk. An appreciation for sarcasm is strongly recommended.

So I've seen a lot of things sitting in the dungeon at the plant, but not in over 10 years has one of those things been an email invitation for the web dude and a pro of his choice to attend skate camp at the Black Pearl skatepark in the Caymans. Dan Drehobl was the lucky dude with the golden ticket who got to join in on the gravy train. Here's some photos of the first day, which was basically an acclamation day while waiting for the Indy team to arrive.

Drehobl gets ready to enter another country

The new mag was the perfect antidote for boredom

Ol'Corpsey loves beatin' a dead horse with more Wallenberg coverage

Vans skate game killed a lot of time, too. Beat that!

The island is flat as a pancake with not one hill to bomb

Treasure Island was our hook-up hotel wise

Complete with an 80-degree pool

A pirate ship from the beach

Straight from the beach to the park. Damn, Rune!

Guess who we ran into? Ol' Cranston

Apparently Navs rips this pool

Trujillo's back tail ain't no joke

Let Alex take you for a tour of the skateshop

Cheap rent

Cuban cigars are legal out here, so why the fuck not?

Stopped by a turtle farm. I think they raise these things for burger meat. Turtle soup is big on the island, Mon

Iguana wise…

Cranston is pretty much snorkel master

It was a big long day that started at 4am and ended at 2am at an insane night club with lots of Ed Hardy shirts

Drehobl loves his Cuban cigars

One last Red Stripe and dip before bed

The island life is mellow vibes and moves at a very slow pace; I hope to have more for you tomARRRow...
