Be-Mag Live Update #1 from Korea Chuncheon World Leisure Cup Action Sports Championships

There is always a sense of trepidation and apprehension when embarking on trips to foreign skate events. The language factor, the foreign food, the cultural differences, plus the fact that new experiences await after a few hours on a plane. This was definitely the case when we left Hong Kong on our midnight flight to Korea for the Korea 2012 Chuncheon World Leisure Cup Action Sports Championships (what a great simple name, yeah?).

Nick Wood, Damien Wilson, Joey Chase and more: One Minute, One Spot

Three years ago, us boys in Santee got pissed that all the good rails around here were capped, and we sucked at hand rails, so we asked our sponsors to help us build a training ground. 4X4, M1, and Remz contributed to us along with our own money to build a practice rail in Damien's yard. Since then we've been having regular legendary BBQ's and sessions like this one shown were we skate the rail and have good ole American fun. This weekend Damien, Rob, Joey and Sammy Chase and me (Nick Wood) got down like we always do all summer long. When I started seeing the "One Minute One Spot" edits I thought that our weekly BBQ's were perfect for that forum. If the Internet homo's want to bust my ball's about doing a Two minute edit they can do the math and see there is 58 seconds of skating, so suck it from Santee.
