Nike SB China Friends in Town

Posted by Rob Meronek on Sunday, December 1, 2013

Our friends from Nike SB China are in town for a couple weeks and stopped by the Dream Driveway today to skate, fish, and be all American as you can be while visiting here. I've got a few snaps and some ripping fishing footage from my phone. Johnny Tang has control of the rod and reel just as good as he does with the wood and wheels.

Behind the Dream Driveway is the Hillsborough River running through Tampa. Johnny Tangs fisherman blood cannot resist the rod and reel call. He brought the entire Nike SB China crew to the house today for a taste of some classic America.

Johnny's got the technique to yank them out of the river.

Pause for a gear check, both fishing and photo.

This is what we're usually doing on the road. Today, Xie Wen Kai is the tourist posting this to whatever the Instagram of China is. It's nice to see out of town friends be tourists in our own town.

Uncle Sam's skipping the fishing in the back for the skating out front. That's a fakie 5-0 switch frontside 180 out.

Xie Wen Kai is all about the front and the back, handling the box after the rod and reel.

Man, I got too many new names to remember. Sorry, forgot your name, homie. That's a nollie frontside nosegrind that you'll probably see in the contest next week.

The crew was also here doing some product photos. Never not working, as one of their shirts says. It's an Asian thing. Thanks everyone for stopping by!
