Kampar is the hometown for SkateMalaysia own crew; Naqi. It is a town in the state of Perak, situated in the Kinta Valley, which was well-known for its high tin ore reserves. Many KLites spend their weekends here. Its vast surroundings as well as abandoned mining-ponds are suitable for fishing. The name Kampar was derived from the Cantonese words kam pou, which means 'precious gold'. This refers to the town's previously large tin reserves.
