There’s only one man on the earth this weeks Throwback Thursdays could go to, I am sure all of us in the flatland community are thinking about Seiji Sakata since the sad news broke of his Liver Cancer diagnosis. Let’s go back to the KOG 2002 final, in which Seiji dropped a style he became famous for worldwide, just watch the nose wheelie line at 00:13! Stay strong Seiji, much love and support from all of us across the globe!
I am sure I speaks for everyone in the flatland community, when I say we were all sad to hear the news of Seji Saketa being diagnosed with Liver Cancer. We all hope he pulls through and continues to fight. Saty Strong Seiji! Isaiah Jordan put together this nice edit inspired by Seiji, and had these words to say:
“The news of Seiji kind of shook me to the core, he was one of, if not the first, rider that I seen that inspired which direction I wanted to take my riding. I never got to meet or talk to him directly, but I remember asking if it was cool if i could use #SeijiStyle hashtag on some clips i was going to drop (that never got finished) a couple years ago. He replied with a thumbs up so I started and think I got about 3 clips released because I got hurt trying his hang-5 barflip. I compiled the clips I did have in honor of Seiji……#StayStrongSeiji #SeijiStyle”
