For archival intents and purposes, it’s still early fall here in Shanghai. While the weather might tell you differently, the unfortunate reality is that I’ve missed an entire season-and-a-half of updates here. A secret internet time capsule is no good if you can’t even bury things during the same season they happened. So, here we go.
Johnny went to Toronto for two months this summer and put together a recap video as seen above, featuring some bass fishing and skating at Ashbridge Skatepark as well as the newly opened Skate Loft 2.0.
Xiao Hu, where you been man? One of the finer clips from 2016…filmed a year ago this month.
The title is explanatory. Bless me homies for I have snapped, it’s been exactly two weeks since the last “update“. With that said, maybe I’ll actually put some real time into this site soon. Right now it’s been somewhat of a digital time capsule for my personal use.
This time around (not unlike every other post on this site), we’re starting off with nearly no direction, theme or even loosely-tied/related outbound links; and like 90% of the time, zero original content.
The first item populating within my recent memory’s feed would have to be the new Victoria HK clip. If you’re reading this somewhere in Asia, you probably already know…but for my international players, follow this link and enjoy some Hong Kong skateboarding. While you’re at it, pick up a shirt or something. That last clip of Chris sent me through a big-wave supertube of SERPS, finally spitting me out here.
This came out a while ago in China, but Vice recently posted a nice 25-minute video profiling Dan Leung. I know all about taking hiatuses, so if you’ve ever endured a breakup and makeup with your skateboard, I recommend giving this a watch.
In efforts to keep something regularly updated, we’re back at it with both locally-sourced and home-away-from-home content. It was another gorgeous weekend here in Shanghai, so we took advantage of the 70 & sunny weather in early November by occupying (read: getting stuck at) The Center.
Hélas just dropped their latest line of gear, the Connection Collection. If you’re in China, cop here. If you’re in the states, visit the online Hélas Store.
Skate Jawn wrote about skating in Seoul (while you’re at it, you should check out the Ryan Gee interview as well). Which immediately reminded me of how much fun we had the last time we took a trip to Seoul. Here’s to planning a visit sooner than later.
Tall Chill Guy aka Yung Bachelor will be returning to Shanghai for a little while – hide your kids, hide your wife. Word is that he’s got an art show in the works too, so stay tuned.
Speaking of which, there’s an art show this Friday at Fly, but no one’s made a flier yet…just know there will be free vodka.
