We’ve finally arrived in China—with Ryan Sheckler, Ryan Decenzo, Andrew Cannon, Curren Caples, David Loy, and a bunch of other skaters—at Woodward Beijing and since we’re jetlagged out of our minds, we figured why not give you a quick tour of the new park? The place is amazing with a lakeside plaza filled with granite and marble, an outdoor vert ramp, and a huge indoor park that has everything from a ski jump into a foam pit to a gnarly street course. The official grand opening of Woodward Beijing is only days away, with a contest to kick it off, so stay tuned. Much more to come.

This weeks Thursday offering comes courtesy of Mydumbluck’s Isaac Mckay-Randozzi, who shot and edited a nice looking day of skating in Northern Cali with HIFI pro Tony Manfre. The crew hit up a few gritty looking street spots, then make their way to Santa Rosa before rounding it all out with a mini ramp sesh. Give it a whirl.
