May be headed out to HK. Does any one know any good spots. Really want to skate the place below.



Also any idea how cheap product is there? Or which skate shops are good?

That place is called Morris Hill park or playground or something like that.
Lots of down town marble spots and hills. Street can be rugged, a ton of people day and night.
Prices seem to be about the same, perhaps a little more expensive.

Cheers. The same as the US? I'm in the UK at the moment. Sort of wondered if shoes will be cheaper in HK? I've browsed a few skate shops but they don't really seem to put many prices up online.

My bad. About 38 quid for a deck, 32-40 for shoes depending on what you get.
Living in Japan, that's cheap. About the same for the US maybe a little more expensive. Dunno about the UK, I haven't been yet.

That's cheap. I lived out in Japan for 12 years. You can find deals ok there now tho? 7000 or so for a board? It used to be 12000 Yen for a new deck and there weren't many sales! Really crazy. New decks in the uk go for about 56. The price differences are pretty fucked up, eh?

Have you skated HK much? I've skated Tokyo and around a bit. Recommend Hachioji's Planet Park if you haven't been. Shin Yokohama is good too...

No it's still really expensive out here. It's because of the choke hold the distributors have on the industry/scene out here. Shit will never change. The only time you'll find a board for 7,000 is if they are having a sale at one of those major chain stores like Murasaki Sports, but fuck that.
When I go back to the States I always take orders and end up lugging back fucking boards and trucks and shit.

I went to HK with a friend that doesn't skate so I didn't do any skating out there. I explored a lot but never got to ride around. I want to go back even just for that park up on the hill. That looks like so much fun.

I've skated Tokyo a few times. I've never been to Yokohama. Nagoya is a lot of fun for skating. I'm in Osaka and I can easily say this whole area is the most fun to skate.

This place is cheap for boards and is run by a skater. It's a net shop, but you can visit the warehouse unit.

This place is cool too. Not quite so cheap but run by a really nice dude (from a stationary store!), he skates too.

Osaka is pretty fun, eh? The food down that way is great too.

Hong Kong contains many spots for traveling where families and other people can visit to take break from daily routine activities. I post some places like:-
Hong Kong Museum of Art,
Disneyland,
Victoria Peak,
Lantau Island,
Water World,
Wet Market.

Hong kong is one of the best place in Asia where you can spend your vacations. It has some good beaches, resorts, parks, museums, shopping malls and some  historical places. Hong Kong Museum of Art, Disneyland, Victoria Peak, Lantau Island and Wet Market are main attraction of Hong Kong.
