Title: Hong Kong New IFC spot
Post by: 360 frip on December 30, 2013, 09:48:43 AM
Heads up...Still being built but it looks great. Ledges, stairs and a really sweet couple of banks to curb things. I'm sure it will be skate stopped soon. Round the back of IFC, near that posh pub. I'll try and get some pics...

To be honest, I only skate parks. There are spots, but I usually just head to Fan Ling. Pretty chilled out park with all you could want. I think there are a lot of spots dotted about but you probably need to hit them at night. Security here seems less hassle than Tokyo though, more a problem of people traffic...I heard China is quite loose? I need to snap a picture of that spot. IFC actually has a lot of small stairs and rails, I imagine it would be good late at night... Do you need a visa to cross the border?

I saw lots of spots in HK.

This is good:
