Converse Asia Crown: Ready, Skate, Go!
Last March 31, I was privileged to attend the country's first and biggest skateboarding event, dubbed Converse Asia Crown at the Trinoma Mindanao open parking lot as it aimed to promote skateboarding as a thriving sports in the Philippines.
Catering to the best skateboarders around the Metro, the Asia Crown gave Filipino skateboarders the chance to show off their dope moves on the board and compete with the best of the best skateboarders across the country to vie for the title of being the first official skateboarding ambassador of Converse Philippines who gets to compete internationally and is also set to compete in the upcoming skate event in China.
Top US-based pro skaters Kenny Anderson and Mike Anderson also graced the event and were set to show Filipino skaters how skateboarding is really done with their extremely polished skate tricks that seem effortless.

It was a whole day open skate, free of charge celebration of physical and creative recreation with activities such as the skate clinic, finger skateboarding competition, foam pit, and graffiti art-while also fusing music through electrifying performances of Paraluman, Gracenote, and 6 Cycle Mind.
Fashionable spectators, Converse Philippines will also feature a preview of their Spring Summer Collection, with their Spring Summer Collection, with an added shoe display, that embody Converse's mission of giving people the freedom to make a statement, by "continuing to adjust with time giving a great variety of styles, color, becoming more creative evolving to what they will become."
