Oakley Sunglasses at Night party!

29 September 2010, 18.03 | Posted in China Skate Event | No comments »

Monday night, I went to the Oakley Sunglasses at Night Party setting outside of its Sanlitun shop. This was first of the kind for Oakley in China, and also supposedly a prelude to a series of events coming up. Oakley’s Chinese official site was said to be launched soon and Shaun White is gonna hit Beijing this winter. Obviously, Oakley is now firmly aiming at China’s X-Game market, like Converse does. The X-Game market in China is really warming up and very promising in the future. A lot of skaters, snowboarders and BMX riders graced the party and I met so many friends and had so much fun!

Another busy weekend! Taking a short break after Adidas Skate Hype last weekend, Shanghai Top Toys was holding the Baby Dragon Shanghai stop this Saturday and Sunday. This was the last chance for skaters to win their tickets to the final contest that will happen in Hangzhou in September 24th and 25th. Most of the top players in Shanghai showed up and competed. A Dee, last week’s champion and star, kept on shining this week and brought home 6,000 RMB by winning Rail and stairs contests. I can’t wait to witness the most fierce battle where all the top three from different stops will come together and fight!
