Everyday is Go Skateboarding Day but we tend to celebrate the Hong Kong Go Skateboarding Day in June. This year it landed on the 28th June 2014. As usual, we all met up at Morrison Hill and then to the newest skatepark in Hong Kong at Tseung Kwan O also known as TKO skatepark.
HONG KONG Go Skateboarding Day is organised by X-Fed, AHKSA (All Hong Kong Skateboards Association) and supported by 8FIVE2SHOP. It’s from HK skateboarders to HK skateboarders. Just some legit stuff.

NEW ERA OLLIE OR DICE
We created this new game called OLLIE or Dice. Basically, every skaters are free to join. They roll the dice and see what they got. Each dice has 6 digits from 1 to 6. The most number 2 dices combine are 12. So if you roll 6 + 6, you have to ollie 12 decks, that’s right. If you are lucky and rolled 1 + 1, you only have to ollie 2 decks. Haa, obviously, there are lots of lucky ones and too many of the unlucky one. At the end, 15 skaters got HKD200 for ollieing whatever dices they rolled and put smiles on everyone’s faces. That’s what important about skateboarding.
