Curl - - Chasing Peaks -

earl Go­ing is chas­ing moun­tain records. Big ones. Fast be­com­ing a sport­ing pow­er­house with a spon­sor fam­ily in­clud­ing Adi­das Out­door, Smith Optics and Black Di­a­mond, she is more than fa­mil­iar talk­ing about what she is wear­ing to tackle peaks. She is well on her way to be­com­ing the fastest woman to scale the seven sum­mits. In July 2012 she will front up in Europe to at­tempt an Alps tril­ogy of Mont Blanc, Eiger and the Mat­ter­horn. Sound ex­cit­ing? Well Kiwi prod­uct Skin­nies sun­screen is tak­ing a front seat ride.

Big- name brands al­ways chase the next big thing, and a name that has hit in­ter­na­tional news out­lets can be a match made in heaven. It was when Pearl was ap­proached by an in­ter­na­tional beauty brand of­fer­ing an en­dorse­ment deal that the idea of part­ner­ing with Skin­nies took shape…

”Some peo­ple would have looked at the cash and signed. Kiwi brands are never go­ing to have the money to com­pete with that so there comes a point where you have to make a choice. I'm a spon­sored ath­lete so I've got a fair bit of pres­sure on me not only to per­form but also look good do­ing it. Oth­ers fol­low your lead and the idea of fronting some­thing that I knew wouldn't per­form never sat well for me. Go­ing with Skin­nies was a no- brainer. I don't know what magic they put in there but it doesn't freeze up the hill. If you are look­ing for a sun­screen that per­forms and won¹t leave you look­ing like you've been out on the hill, this is it.” Fol­low Pearls ad­ven­tures via her face­book page face­book.com/PG7- Pearl- Go­ing-7- Sum­mits Or fol­low her on twit­ter https://twit­ter.com/pearl­go­ing
