Tourists in Taiwan


A few months ago, Element Australia‘s skateboarding team took a trip over to Taiwan to celebrate their revival and Bjorn Johnston, Alex Lawton, Deen Rakich, Christian Low, Jeremy Corea, and their new team manager, Harris Taylor took on a search for the ultimate spots.

Well, we didn’t go to China. Fuck it. It’s already been done. We did think about it, more than once, but came to the decision that we were going to buck the current trend. Little did we know prior to the trip, but July in Taiwan is mid-summer, it’s a time where heat, rain, floods, storms, typhoons, and other climate changes are more than common. All of which are not exactly ideal for skateboarding.

Here’s an exclusive video filmed by Leigh Bolton and some photos from Jake Darwen.
