    ROSSEAU, ON, July 23 /CNW/ - Muskoka Woods announced today that they will
be hosting Globe Shoes & Dakine Skateboard teams Tuesday July 29 - Thursday
July 31.
    The Globe/Dakine team riders draw huge numbers internationally at demos
and contests and inspire fans with their great personalities.
    The biggest draw is Chris Haslam. He is a longhaired, bearded mad man,
with a huge love of music, skateboarding and kids. Chris has a video game
character, tons of signature products and is Canadian.
    Paul Machnau is one of the most exciting big rail skateboarders in the
world and is one of the most influential Canadian skaters of all time. Ryan Decenzo is the world's most
decorated amateur skater who held almost every title in 2007.
    "Muskoka Woods prides itself on having the best summer camp facilities
available anywhere in the camping industry and our 80,000 sq ft action sports
park is a fantastic reflection of our commitment to sports," said Iain Lovatt,
Marketing QB of Muskoka Woods.
    "This summer, Muskoka Woods has taken up the challenge to bring in the
best action sports athletes and brands to give our guests that extra special
experience during their week," said Chris Evans, Executive Director of Muskoka
Woods, "and by partnering with brands like Globe and Dakine, we are ensuring
that our guests will not only see some of the best skateboard talent in the
world, but will also learn from them as well."
    Brian White, Ontario Sales Rep for Globe & Dakine said, "Chris Haslam,
Paul Machnau and Ryan Decenzo have had a big month. They just filmed a new
video for transworld called "skate and create", they toured the world for the
release of the puzzle shoe and have been finalists in all the latest contests.
When asked what they would be doing next they said "We are going back to
Canada" happy to hang with the folks at Muskoka woods.
