Rayne team rider Patrick Switzer spent just over a week in the Philippines earlier this year getting stoked on the scene, enjoying local food, and taking in the breathtaking scenery.

In those 8 days he also took a bunch of photos and wrote a few words for Skate Slate. You can check out the article on Skate Slate:

The best yellow mangoes in the world are from Cebu, which make pit stops all the more pleasing. Seafood is extremely fresh with shrimp, octopus, oysters, squid and many types of fish. And the most obvious thing a visitor welcomes is that everything is very inexpensive. For example in rural areas you can eat a good meal for $2, an hour long massage for $7, or a flight to another island for $40!

The story doesn't end there! Part two is coming down the line later this week so make sure to check back!
