WATER CAYMANDER

by Schmitty

Wake up to a humid 90 degrees at 9am and the only thing you're gonna want to do is get wet. Such was the island life in Cayman on the daily. The routine was wake up, snorkel, pool rinse, breakfast, more snorkel, cold ones, skate. The Indy team arrived, so JR at Skate Cayman lined up an evening wave pool sesh. Skateboarding happens tomorrow…
