Episode Summary

"Episode 4 of DRIVE finds Mike Vallely traveling to the island nation of Barbados to check out its fledgling skate scene. The show opens with Mike skating one of the local skate spots, an ocean front wooden boardwalk. From there he visits the Irie One Skate Shop to meet up with local skater Paul Wilson. Paul has taken it upon himself to create a legitimate scene in Barbados by bringing all of the islands skaters together. Mike joins Paul and some of the local crew for a session on their miniramp. In his efforts to push skateboarding and introduce more of the local people to skateboarding, Paul has established an island skate tour in which he takes all the skaters around the island to session different spots. Mike joins Paul on the tour and goes with the kids on the bus to checkout what the island has to offer. Mike is blown away by the local's friendly attitude and camaraderie regardless of their varying abilities. Mike's time in Barbados ends with him helping Paul and a bunch of the locals load some portable ramps onto a flatbed truck and unload them in a car park to skate…a sort of mobile skate park. In talking with Paul and seeing everything that he is doing for the scene in Barbados, Mike concludes that they now have the proper foundation to build a legitimate scene that will benefit skaters for generations to come."moreless
