Here’s a short video we did with Brian Dolle to promote the VERT 2013 Spring collection:
Shanghai is filled with over 20 million people (about the same population as all of Australia) and it’s one of the only cities in China where you can conveniently skate from spot to spot. Since Shanghai is a major city with many of its inhabitants having migrated from the surrounding provinces, during Chinese New Year, the city practically becomes a ghost town, with only the locals and expats left wandering the streets setting off firecrackers. Here we follow Brian Dolle for a day as he cruises through Shanghai’s empty streets choosing to ignore the taxis, metro lines, and buses in favor of a skateboard.
