GMA News TV Pop Talk arrives in La Paz

The LEAD Movement has really never stopped rolling ever since they innovated sandboarding. While hosting the Philippine Network of Environment Journalists on Tuesday, Pop Talk rolls in to experience Laoag’s signature adventure.

Tonipet Gaba, Paolo Soler, Rozie Delgado and Beth Redondo shot a segment in La Paz for an Ilocos feature on the GMA News TV channel.

Pro Surfer/blogger Paolo Soler makes an effortless crack at the ramp.

“It’s good ‘coz it’s safe,” Paolo says about the experience. He shouts as he ascends back  the steep dunes, “Papayat ka dito.”

Surfer Beth, who slid like a pro, adds “Sobrang sarap!”

High five: Beth Redondo and Paolo.

Longboarder/environment advocate Rozie Laurel Delgado

With a smile, Rozie affirms, “It’s so much fun… more forgiving than downhill skateboarding.”

Even the producer and crew had a taste of Ilocos “sand”wich:)) Thanks tons to GMA News TV and Pop Talk. Hope to have you again!

Please try to catch the full Ilocos Norte episode on GMA News TV 11’s Pop Talk. I heard they went spelunking in my other fave town Burgos.
