Kasut Roda Roller Skating in Malaysia

Kasut Roda is a project by Eric Perez from the Philippines who traveled to Malaysia to film roller skaters from the RollerratzKL crew and from Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, the Philippines and Indonesia over the course of a year. With this video, the skater and filmer wants to show the world that street & park quad skating is alive in Southeast Asia. If this is new to you then we have another learn: kasut roda means roller skate in Malay. You’re welcome, and now hit the play button.

Eric, what made you create the video?

Every time I search for quad skating in Asia, it’s mostly in skateparks. There are not a lot of aggressive quad skaters from Southeast Asia skating on the streets. So I asked the Rollerratz crew to skate the streets and put their skills to the test, and the result is this video project.

Where did you film?

Mostly the spots are in Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia), Putrajaya and Selangor. Some spots we did not skated it because our skill level is not enough…hahaha.

How long did you film?

I started gathering clips from April 2023 to March 2024, while filming my other project to Chuffed Skates “Are we done?”.  

Anything else you want the world to know?

Hello world (quad skaters), aggressive quad skating is alive and rolling here in Southeast Asia. If you have plans to visit Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Philippines and Indonesia just contact us. And thank you @Wheel_Love skateshop and DogDays Mag for supporting this small project.
