HONG KONG SPOT CHECK 01 - I.T. (Immigration Tower)

Spot Check is a new series where we revisit iconic HK skate spots and discuss the history behind them. Hear the stories from two OG’s: JBS & Darryl Griggs as they reminisce about the good old days. This 1st episode tells the story of Immigration Tower. In 1995, Darryl saw the spot for the first time, JBS coined the name “IT” and the rest is history.

San Diego local ‘Donger’ was the first one to attempt the gap to ledge. According to JBS it was a wet, misty, stoney night and he did it first try, twice.

Legend has it there were 100+ people on some of the early Friday night I.T. sessions. This clip shows us what the scene was really like back in the day as a massive crowd watches a young Brandon Turner put on a ledge demo.

By far the gnarliest and most well executed trick done at Immigration Tower.
Chris Cole was on a mission during the filming of Fallen’s ‘Ride The Sky’ video.
