With so many companies and skaters hitting China’s marble plazas in
Guangzhou and Shenzhen these days, an entire region of Asia has been
left neglected and untapped. With that in mind, the DC team paid
Southeast Asia a long overdue visit. Traveling through Indonesia,
Malaysia, Philippines, and Thailand for two weeks, this is the side of
the skate tour you never see. All the inside jokes, all the antics that
happen before and after skating, all the hijinx, demos, signings, and
street spots: this right here is the ultimate look at a skate tour in
four countries that love skateboarding more than anything else on the
planet yet rarely see American pros in the flesh. Welcome to part 3 of
Youth in Asia: The Defy Convention Tour — it's well worth the ride.

As most of you skaters would know, the DC Shoes USA team was just
recently in town to skate, hang out and also to promote the new Matt
Miller signature shoe. We had the pleasure and honor of having a brief
“borak-borak” session with Matt himself to ask him about his new
signature shoe, the process behind it and also the idea behind it all.
We also managed to throw in some Malaysianized questions for Matt to
answer. Check out the interview HERE.
