Q&A with Johnny Tang

Johnny Tang, a true skateboard rider who has skated for 19 years till now.
His skateboard setup is 8.0 deck, highs, 51mm, Allen key, and he skates in US 9 shoes. 

In 2006, a few Global Nike SB members made a trip to China to film some clips for “Nothing But the Truth”, 
Johnny was probably the only one they could find who knew the spots and spoke both Chinese and English.
So, he naturally became their tour guide.
During that trip, Johnny skated a few spots with the Nike SB team and the team managers (Kevin Imamura and Hunter Murraira) were interested in starting a China Nike SB team.

Soon after that, Johnny got a call from Kevin Imamura who offered him a job at Nike SB.
Johnny was the first member of China Nike SB team and has been representing Nike SB till today.

[Interview] Steven Penny – BBC & Ice Cream Collector

Have you ever thought,

you have some friends around you who have done something you didn’t know,

and they will surprise you a lot.

I met Stephen Penny in a local event I hosted in early 2018,

at first he was quietly wandering in the event,

but when I talked to him about streetwear,

he became a different person,

he could keep talking about different things for hours.

And after that I know,

Stephen used to be a banker in several famous banks,

he also hosts The Otherz Podcast.

At the same time,

Stephen is one of the most known Billionaire Boys Club (BBC) collectors in Europe,

and even in the world.

On a recent weekend,

we visited Stephen’s house,

we chatted for a few hours and covered from the streetwear scene in the early 2000s

to his most memorable BBC pieces,

and things happened between him and the BBC brand.
