SUPRA Invasion: Part One
NOVEMBER 11, 2013
The SUPRA Invasion Tour began in Seoul, Korea, where we skated some amazing spots, hung out with the locals, experienced an enthusiastic and growing Korean scene, and ate mass quantities of Korean BBQ.
Our first spot on the trip was this amazing plaza turned into a skatepark, thanks to a good ole petition from the local skaters to the city. Nick Tucker
takes a nose blunt the distance.
Boo Johnson frontside blast.
Jim Greco about to get Ike Turner on this place. Hammers!
This little rail gets a 180 nose grind beatdown from Boo.
Heading over the bridge to our next spot as it starts to rain.
Spencer Hamilton with a kick flip in the rain.
Timber Shop was our first signing on the tour. They have a very exciting scene growing in Korea; the future is looking good for skateboarding here.
Greco tags the wall in the shop. Hammers!
One thing you have to eat in Korea: KBBQ all day every day. So good.
We stopped by the Blue House, Korea's version of the White House. This site has been the seat of power since 1104.
Sejong the Great ruled here from 1418-1450.
Skate time: block check by Neen Williams.
