X-Games Dress to Impress

[06/07/10] 

Summer is here, the water is warm and the ladies gracing Hong Kong’s sandy shores are dressing less than a health-conscious salad. Perhaps it’s time to take all those skills you learned on the Xbox, playing Tony Hawke’s Project 8 and TransWorld Surf all winter, and put them into practice on real world, where bones break and reputations are made. After all, chicks love surfers and kiteboarders - even skateboarders over 17 - and there is nothing as libido-enhancing as a near-death experience.

But if you’re going to tackle life’s increasingly lethal recreational activities, including old school sports like skateboarding and BMX, and increasingly popular pursuits like wakeboarding, kiteboarding and surfing, then you’ll need the right gear.

X-Games’ two Hong Kong shops feature a wide range of beach gear so you’ll pass the fashionista test before you mount your first tumbling tube or rail slide.

For summer, they have new collections of beach casual wear, as well as new retro cruiser skateboards, state-of-the-art wake boards by CWB, and snowboards by Analog, for when you feel like heading off piste in the deep south.

They even have thermal bikinis for your pose of snow bunnies.
