VICTORIA "BULLY" in Taipei

Victoria is a Hong Kong skateboarding brand “made for skaters by the skaters." 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.

“It’s not just Victoria Hong Kong, we’re an Asia collective and I just wanna keep growing it.”

To bring the local and international scenes together, Victoria organized “BULLY,” a group exhibition that showcased a range of artworks and musical performances.

“We don’t have a website with professional skater profiles, it’s more just friends and family.”
