On 20 September 2014, Converse Malaysia had organize an awesome event at Wakalab, Media Prima Digital, located at Jalan Riong Bangsar, Kuala Lumpur. The 12 hour event that start at 10 am until late was a global initiative community project constructed to inspire the next generation of creative souls through sports, arts, music and style. In collaboration with professionals in the world of skate, entertainment and art.
The CONS Project were hosted interactive workshops for those who are interested in learning. The first session for that day is skateboarding workshop that were hosted by Joe Ipoh, Mariss Khan, Screw The Box and Converse Flow Skaters. I was Joe Ipoh fans when I'm in a secondary school, which I get the influence from the older sister who love the extreme game. She love to bought the extreme magazine(i forgot the name) that is full with the info about the x-games in Malaysia. We even went to the Malaysian x-games once and enjoying the extreme scene. When my sister asked Abah to bought her skateboard, he only bought us the cheap skateboard which only allowed us to ride on it and you can't even do any tricks with it because its a hard plastic board..haha...
|Joe Ipoh also in the crowd|
High School memory such an awesome to remembered but never thought that I will married to ex-skaters one day.. My husband used to play skate from high school and he stop playing skate just before he met me..hahaha.. I'm a bad influence? Did I stop him? Nah! He just getting busy and forgot about his skateboard world that time..but he still kept his old deck in the house...
|Mariss said that DingDang influence him to skate|
The first session also were served with nasi lemak and drinking water for all attendees and I was really enjoyed the super relax talk by Mariss Khan about the Malaysian Skateboarding industry, the influence that he got with his skateboard design. After the QA session with Mariss Khan the event continued with ScrewTheBox, the guy behind the scene who capture the great video and picture in the skateboarding industry.
