VICTORIA "BULLY" in Taipei
Victoria is a Hong Kong skateboarding brand “made for skaters by the skaters,” as Chris Bradley puts it. Aside from producing clothing and boards, Victoria represents a collective of multicultural riders from a wide scope of Asian countries including Japan, Thailand, Korea, and of course, Hong Kong.
The crew is pushing street skating in Asia as they venture abroad to different cities in search of new spots to skate. In 2019, they met up for a 10-day skate trip in Taipei, the capital of Taiwan. The city itself gives off an East Coast vibe with a wacky Asian twist — a mixture of smooth roads, crusty plazas, and the unusual but perfect concrete swell. Watch the video to get a taste of what it’s like to cruise the streets of Taipei with a heavy crew.
