“Dear Friends

Everyone woke up fresh from a good nights sleep and had a lazy morning before heading out on the town. The crew grew significantly today with more people eager to hang out a watch the action.

We decided to take the metro which would take us directly to the far north east of the city. Boards were stickered up and griptape cut while travelling through the deep tunnel beneath sizzling Shanghai.

First stop: Ledges

Once on site, curbs were waxed and boards set up. The sun beat down, yet we all endured to skate or die. While P Dan warmed up the boys found their angles. Even Cyres got behind the camera. Unfortunately after warming up and just about ready to start filming, security came and started with the usual, HEY YOU CAN’T DO THAT HERE! With some pleasantries on our behalf we convinced the guards to give us 10 more minutes. In which time P Dan got his trick and young BJ ripper, Sean, got a gap to lip 180 out. kids got skills son, BAM!

Second stop: Long double set

A double set situated within a park next to a beautiful pond was the site of next hit and run, well, hit yes but we did not run. After P Dan skated the double till sundown we chilled on the dock enjoying the even air and cool refreshments couriered by Sean, Pip and Morgan. Thanks guys.

Till tomorrow my dear friends,”
