The X-Life shoots pilot episode in Ilocos Norte

This is a repost. The show airs Wednesday, June 2, 2010, 10pm.

The sweltering 34º Celsius heat in Ilocos didn’t prevent QTV’s X-Life from shooting sandboarding scenes with the LEAD Movement, the innovator of sandboarding in the Philippines, in the world-renowned Desert of the North, or the Laoag Sand Dunes in La Paz.X-Life, a public affairs magazine show focusing on fitness and lifestyle, airs its pilot on QTV Channel 11, channel on free TV powered by GMA Network Inc, on May 26 June 2, Wednesday, at 10PM. The  initial episode also includes segments on extreme mountain biking and surfing, shot in scenic Maira-ira Point in Pagudpud. The show promises to be entertaining, informative and cutting edge.
