This is a Skateboarding event extravaganza organized by Billabong
Usually on weekends, we're usually shooting at the usual suspect locations around Singapore.
This will be a refreshing change and I'll leave it to your imagination what kinds of images are possible
From the Billabong website:
"Singapore will play host to 32 of the regions most select skateboarders this August, in the inaugural Billabong City Squared Asia skateboarding invitational. The event, presented by Sony Ericsson, will take place at Ngee Ann City, Orchard Road, one of the busiest shopping precincts in the Southern Hemisphere. Top skateboarders from over eight countries Asia wide will battle it out on a purpose built rail, ledge and stair set-up for their part of a USD $20,000 prize pool.
There’s high anticipation around the August 27th event, as it will be the first time an Asia-based skate event has seen such a significant cash prize, coupled with a venue that has such high foot traffic. “There’s such an amazing talent pool of skaters in this region”, stated Billabong Brand Manager Peter Thew “On this type of obstacle, at this venue, with this kind of money… these guys are going to be going big!”
Larger than anything built before it, the skate obstacle will be set on an elevated platform, with the skaters progressing through the elimination concept competition based on their ability to consistently land high difficulty skateboarding maneuvers. The Billabong City Squared Asia champion will walk away USD $10,000 richer with second, third, and fourth places of USD $6,000, USD $3,000, and USD $1,000 being awarded respectively. Also up for grabs for the skater who pulls off the best trick during the course of the entire event is a one of a kind Nixon 51-30 watch made specially for this event. The City Squared Asia will be co-hosted by Aussie skate legend Cameron “Sparx” Sparks and MTV VJ Utt.
The Billabong City Squared Asia is proudly presented by Sony Ericsson and supported by Air Asia, Nixon, and Vitamin Water."
