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