Vans Pushes Through Asia in its Latest Video Series 'Transit'

Vans Pushes Through Asia in its Latest Video Series 'Transit'

Looking back to about 10 years ago, skating in a place like China would have been practically unheard of, whereas now, seeing footage from somewhere as obscure to the West as Hunan province has become somewhat of a regular. It’s taken a lot of work, but a strong sense of comradery has made all the difference. Vans videographer, Tommy Zhao explains “When you get taken around by local skaters versus being there just as a tourist, you kind of become a local for that short amount of time.” That sense of community that goes beyond cultural differences is what we’re seeing in the brand’s latest video series “Transit,” which takes us through South China, Korea, Singapore, and Malaysia. Shot by Tommy Zhao, check out the first two clips below.
