We gratefully acknowledge the generous support of NHS brands that were there for us in our Lockdown contest, and have now come on board for this Asia Skateboarding Awards.

Their support has helped us ensure there is a generous reward for winners.

In addition to these, we would like to thank the following brands and the support of their team managers who have given their time and support to ensure the awards are judged to the highest standard.

Nothing comes close to the effort that endemic skate media put in to showcase talent, and we would like to extend a thank you to those that have continued to support our work.

Kenny Reed

Kenny Reed is synonymous with travel, adventure and exploration using his skateboard. His iconic video parts are filled with some of the most stylish tricks in the most obscure spots ever skated. After his 20-year pro career he became a director of SkateQilya, a non-profit organization that holds a summer camp that teaches skateboarding, photography, videography, and community building. Recently, he was the head coach for the National Skateboarding Team for Myanmar and led them to the Vans Park Series in Japan and the South East Asian Games in the Philippines.
