    Ahhhhhh so stoked!!!! KickerClub!!! When I was in Beijing I hooked up with those guys and they’re awesome dudes. The seen is blowing up over there and there is soooo much marble!!! Wish I could’ve been there and the photos don’t do the level of skating over there justice. There are some dudes that seriously kill it over there.
