Original comment: In February 2007, I left for China to do shows in an amusement park for 11 months, totally unaware that that experience would change my life forever, I now find myself going to China 2-3 times a year, I speak and read a fluent Chinese Mandarin and run some bmx teams in China!
Now more than 10 years later I revisit Shenzhen and lay down some previously unpublished tricks on some of what I thought were the most iconic and favourite of my spots ; OCT Shenzhen IKEA underground parking lot, OCT Shenzhen Walmart spot and beautiful ShiminZhongxin (市民中心）spot at the end. I used to live in a place called BaiShiZhou (白石洲) within Shenzhen (深圳） , an area now set to be demolished in the coming years to build apartment towers. I am very grateful that everything lined up so I could film it the way I saw it back then before the past was erased.
You might have heard of Shenzhen City, an old fishing village just north of Hong Kong turned into a World Class city in some 30 to 40 years! It is often referred to as the NYC of China! I've always wanted to document this ''second life'' I lead and hope you can enjoy it as much as I enjoy bringing it to your device!

Original comment: AFTER 27 YEARS OF RIDING FLATLAND WITH BRAKES I DECIDED TO START RIDING WITHOUT BRAKES AND CHALLENGE MYSELF INTO SOMETHING TOTALLY DIFFERENT FROM MY BELIEFS. TIME WILL SHOW IF MY DECISION WAS RIGHT OR WRONG. AT THE MOMENT I FEEL LIKE A BRAND NEW PERSON BUT DEFINITELLY I'M THE SAME OLD PERSON DOING NEW MISTAKES... MAXIMUM RESPECT TO KEVIN JONES WHO RODE BRAKELESS FIRST OF EVERYONE AND THEN CHASE GOUIN MASTERED THIS STYLE. THANK YOU KEVIN AND CHASE FOR EVERYTHING...
