Celebrating the 15th anniversary of 8FIVE2, the Hong Kong skate label has released a short clip featuring founder Brian Siswojo. Pushing skateboarding culture in the city since the ’90s, Brian speaks on the roots of 8FIVE2, its expansion to an outpost in Kowloon, alongside teaming up with Vans on the Vans SK85IVE2 skatepark to provide opportunities for local skaters and build further awareness on the sport. We also learn about Brian’s in-house label Know1edge and get an introduction to the 8FIVE2′s skate team, which recently recruited none other than Stefan Janoski to its lineup. Clocking at just over five minutes, the Jordan Mayfield-directed short offers a closer look at the 8FIVE2SHOP retail locations, the latest Know1edge apparel and footage of the bustling city.
