Remember that surprise challenger who crushed Winterclash 2008, and battled head to head on that deadly sub box with Erik Bailey in the final round? That was Worapoj Boonnim. The USD pro is one of the best park skater Asia has ever produced, or the world for that matter. Along with Jeerasak Tassorn and special coach Richie Eisler, the man they call Note has been training the Thai national team over the past year, and inspired many with his talent and positive mind.
Worapoj kills street too: after putting out an incredible Powerhouse section in Barcelona, Richie himself payed Note a visit and the pair came up with another banging segment: the Bangkok Sessions. Besides his short appearance in BHC’s video End of the Line, we haven’t seen much of him lately though, but with more media projects emerging in Southeast Asia, we sure hope to see him a lot more often on our screens soon!
