Vans global skate team riders Kyle Walker, Chima Ferguson, Curren Caples, and Elijah Berle converged on China once again for a week of filming missions, skate demos, and to take part in the next episode of the Welcome To tour. The global skate team toured the country, demo’ing in Shanghai, Beijing, and Shenzhen along with the Vans Asia Team. Vans China rider Wang Hui Feng hosted the crew for their Shenzhen experience, which inevitably produced some of the banging clips in the Vans No Other Way video. This episode is a behind the scenes look at what happens when skateboarders battle rain but still produce amazing content.
Check some of Wang Hui Feng’s street digs from the famed Deng Xiaoping square in central Shenzhen, to a few indoor gems that the crew were forced to rage due to weather. The Welcome To: Shenzhen video by Tommy Zhao shows the mecca of skate spots the city holds, as well as depicting how gnarly the weather can be in Southern China.
Stay tuned for the final episode of this year’s Welcome To series with the Vans Asia crew hitting up the Islands of Malaysia. Local Malay ripper Porock Luis leads the guys through volcanic mud baths, beach getaways, and a few skate spots in between.
