A couple of years back, our former intern and current Vans APAC media guy Ollie Rodgers went around his native Hong Kong with a group of friends to check out some of the crustiest and cuttiest spots the city has to offer. He recently reached out to us again with a follow-up video exploring even more remote corners and skating even chunkier concrete.
From what we can see here, skating in Hong Kong seems kind of like if you mixed Tokyo, San Francisco, and New York in a giant bowl and threw that all into one dense city. Basically, it’s an EA Skate map, so all we can say is that we hope to make a trip to Hong Kong happen as soon as possible.
