Back in the 90s, skateboarding in Singapore was practically illegal. You couldn’t do it on the streets, on the sidewalks, and you damn sure couldn’t do it in a skate park (there weren’t any). If you were caught doing a kickflip on a public sidewalk, you could expect a 150 SGD fine (about 110 USD today). Two decades and almost a dozen skateparks later, Singapore is embracing its skateboard community, which might explain why these boarders from Ride Channel were able to get a few grinds off a ledge in front of City Hall.
