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.
Vans came through Shanghai in September for the Vans Park Series. They built an absolutely incredible bowl, only to tear it down the day the contest ended. I get that building something permanent is a whole different beast, especially when dealing with the local government, but some transition like this would have done wonders for the local skaters here. Maybe next time they can put that VF guanxi to work…No hate though, we still have SMP 😉
The kids are alright. Always happy to see The Woo© alive and well.
