THAILAND
« on: February 11, 2023, 05:52:17 AM »
Hello guys,

Most posts about Thailand and neighboring countries (Cambodge, Vietnam, Laos) are a bit old, here's a new one.
A homie will soon be in Bangkok for a month or two and i told him i would ask Slap about recommendations (shops, parks, spots, etc.) so that he can have a good time there.

He might not just stay in Thailand and he's planning trips in neighboring countries.

Feel free to share purely touristic and/or skateboarding recommandations

Thanks guys !

I lived there for 10 years, the local scene in Bangkok is top notch. Your friend should go to Preduce in Bangkok and connect with the locals. Myanmar, Cambodia and Laos all have inspiring skate scenes that my friends are involved in. I have personally traveled around with Malto, Suciu, Gall, Decenzo, Reed and countless other pros around Bangkok and Thailand. Everybody absolutely loves it!

Bangkok is an amazing place to skate, so much fun and always something going on. Definitely hit up Preduce, theyíll point you in the right direction.
Rama 8 bridge is pretty central and has amazing spots all around, plenty of locals hang there too, all super friendly & accommodating.

Preduce has an awesome outdoor park that is connected to their store (new location) and it's definetly worth visiting. Hua Mark/Ramkhmhaeng University also has an awesome park. If your friend goes to the park at Ramkhmhaeng University in the morning, he's likely to see Kenny Reed there working/skating with the Thai Olympic team.

Hanoi is one on my favorite places and can't wait to go back some day, so I suggest there. I stayed near Hoŗn Kiếm Lake, great area. Though very touristy, Ha long Bay is worth it for a night or 2 cruise.

For Laos, I didn't find Vientiane particularly special, but Luang Prabang is an awesome little town. Highly suggest there.

In case your friend will go to Hua mark skate park, I mostly recommended visiting Roti Board Shop located around there. They can provide you with nearby D.I.Y skate spots such as RK69 and Ladprao.

Anyone has any infos on Chiang Ma?   I'll be there for 2/3 weeks in April.
The '80s were the worst period. You had these horrible pop bands growing their hair and calling themselves metal.

I was there in November in Phucket for a week.

There is a huge outdoor water park there called Blue Tree with a small bit nicely designed small concrete park with ledges, banks, some quarters and a small spine.

Have a skate then hit the ski-jump style waterslides

You should go to check out the Basic Skate House, it's a new skatepark that builds and operated by Lert Saeri.
He's the one of Thai legendary skateboarders.
There also have two other skate shops called Kid Skate Shop and Stamp Skate Shop.

How can you guys even skate in that heat/humidity lol? I say this as someone with South East Asian heritage. I feel uncomfortable even thinking about that thick sensory wall.

I had no idea what singlet meant. I figured it was some Aussie slang, which it might be, but nevertheless I learned some things along the way in the quest for knowledge. I came across a company that specializes in singlets.

Thing #1: The team choosing the pics for this item did a great job.
https://gruffpup.com/products/impulse-singlet-black-red

Thing #2: They have their own version of the Muska stash pocket
https://gruffpup.com/collections/jockstraps/products/gruff-pup-pocket-jockstrap-black-striped

Thing #3: They have clothing specifically designed for military personnel
https://gruffpup.com/products/combat-jockstrap

Thing #4: Basically all of their products are inclusive for people that have irritable bowel syndrome, as most of the clothing attire is available in traditional and "assless" formats.

All of it looks really comfortable and perfect for lounging around the house. I'll post in the "sale gear thread" if I see any excellent sales coming up.
