All the photos in this blog were of actually events, which contained attempted tricks but not tricks that were actually landed with the exemption of the last photo.

This time we didn't spend our day sitting in the office, but went out with the SYME staff to have some fun.
We started on the wrong side
There was plenty of exercise stations along the hiking path, as if hiking wasn't enough exercise.

Nike Skate team's Justin Brock, Youness Amrani and Wieger Van Wageningen came to Taiwan along with a couple of their European riders Marek Zaprazny and daniel Lebron. Sadly I didn't get to run into them myself but one of my friends did. I regularly skate at a couple of the spots you will see in the video. Here is a link to the video the posted up. http://youtu.be/IExlXdMkgKg?t=15s

I went street skating with about 15 guys. We skated from spot to spot. I didn't get too many photos because I was too busy skating myself. The guy heading it up is a owner of a skate shop and give tiny incentives to land tricks. It got me a free drink.

More on the southern east side of Taiwan are these beautiful cliffs.The cliffs are decaying and becoming hollow underneath the surface that you are standing on in some areas. I managed to climb down the side and find this strange fruit.
At night the stars are gorgeous. Taichung is so polluted I can never see any stars. However the Night we went it was too cloudy to see anything. But we spotted a couple mountain goats.

Taiwanese and Koreans like to take pictures of themselves, everywhere they go. If you look through their facebook photos you will notice every photo looks the same with the same facial expression, except the background is a different color and location. Jake and I tried to imitate their photo taken style.

We took a trip down to Kenting, Taiwan with 10 people. It was a hard decision to go because I had exams the following week. I had lots of work to get finished.
The first night the guys stayed at Victors house. While there I found a bunch of cowboy like hats. We ended up wearing them down to Kenting, pretending to be like Mexicans.
I added the mustache
While we were driving down the road, I joked about wanting to have my picture taken with a cow, because of our outfits. The Taiwanese driver, Victor, slammed an the brakes. And both of the Taiwanese in the car yelled, "WHERE!" while frantically looking both ways with their heads to find the cow. I forgot that Taiwan doesn't have many cows and it is kinda a touristy thing to go see them. But eventually we found their cows.
It was difficult taking a picture of our hotel room because it was sooo huge. Actually it was one tiny room with beds and a bathroom. You can see the whole thing from this photo. However, it was cheap.
