this video was realllllllllly good. i mean realllly good.

to Anonymous- it sounds like you don't think very highly of Singaporean skateboarders lol.

I agree that Indo skaters appear to be more motivated to film and do stuff with skating like setting up their own brands.

But Indo is much bigger market, more people more money, so more sponsors, got quiksilver,Converse, billabong, Volcom, Oakley so many big brand that skaters can get sponsored by.

In Singapore it's harder to get sponsored by these big brands cause our market so small. And Singapore companies here really suck, they don't even want to sponsor us a few t-shirt or shoes. It's a joke.

But back to the point - i loved this video . Looks like they put a lot of effort. I think i saw 5 filmers? and filmed for almost a year.. that's dedication and team work.
