Behind The Scenes In Hong Kong With Brandon Webster

Press play!

Brandon Webster took a trip down to LA at the beginning of the month to compete in Vital‘s game of BIKE at the Hollenbeck Plaza and they just posted the video of his round against Caleb Quanbeck that he ended up winning. Here’s what Brandon had to say about the whole thing and check out the video below…

“The Vital game of BIKE was a blast! It was one of the most relaxed and positive contests I’ve ever been to; riding with your friends at a plaza made it super easy to have a good time. To say the least, I had an amazing time!”

Brandon Webster in Somday App Commercial

Brandon Webster was in Hong Kong a while back and while he was there he was featured in a commercial for a new social network app called Somday with fellow Canuck Mike Gray. The whole thing looks like it was a pretty great experience, check out what Brandon had to say about the whole thing below…

‘So pretty much out of the blue I got a text from Mike Gray asking if I wanted to go on a free trip to Hong Kong, next thing you know I’m in contact with the mastermind behind the whole app, Jeremy Chan. Two weeks later I hopped on a 17 hour plane ride and spent a week riding the most significant landmarks in Hong Kong. Jeremy and everyone else involved in hosting us made it one of the best trips of my life. I learned a ton about Asian culture and got to party like kings. It was cool to be on a filming trip more focused on location than riding. The video turned out great and I believe there’s another one coming soon!’
