The China Report: Blog-Cam Cut

Wednesday, July 13th, 2011

While Concrete Photo Editor Brian Caissie was rolling 15-deep in China earlier this year, he provided The China Report photo updates from the Far East, as well as the comprehensive 14-page feature you’ll find in the July 2011 issue of the mag. Caissie brought the office Sony “Bloggie” video cam on the trip to pass around to the homies during their travels. That is until he was pick-pocketed on the dance floor at the infamous Babyface club in Shenzhen. Here’s a cut of the salvaged footy…

Skaters in order of appearance // Will Blakley, Nick Moore, AJ McCallister, Mike Campbell, Justin Allain, Evan Bourque, Corey Klim, Stacy Gabriel, Derek Swaim and Cory Wilson.

Music // “Automatic Stop” by The Strokes from the album Room On Fire (2003).

Issue 113 is available now (and for free) in finer skateshops across Canada. If you haven’t picked up a copy yet, you can find a preview run-through of the cover and features right here.
