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
