So i have this old mate...Tyrone Jensen...SA Longboarding Champ.
and he has just been selected to join the ASP World Tour...at events in France in May and California in October. This is a once in a lifetime chance and he doesn't have lank cash lying around to fork out on expences.
The ASP don't pay a cent of his costs...and i don't think he has too many sponsors...if any! So he's in the same boat as most boogers!
They are throwing a Barn Dance in order to help raise the money to get him there...how sad, but dedicated is that!
Maybe we can take note...one has to help ones self before expecting others to lend a hand.

He's a flipping good guy...studying to become a Doctor...final year i think...and a genuine nice bloke.
If anyone has some more ideas on how Tyrone can come up with the cash or you know of anyone who would be interested in sponsoring South Africa's top Longboarder please let his sister Kirstel know...
