R.I.P Seiji Sakata


Very sad news today here on Flatmattersonline, Japanese flatland legend Seiji Sakata lost his battle with liver cancer that we reported around a month ago. I’m sure I speak for the whole flatland community in saying this is a very sad day, and my condolences go out to his wife Mari, family and friends. Taking from us way too young.

In all of our hearts forever.

R.I.P Seiji Sakata.

  2. Man…. this is almost unbelievable to hear. Condolences to the Sakata family and rest in peace, Seiji… just devastating. In my 40’s now, I find myself thinking more and more about these illnesses that can take someone out just like that, regardless of how healthy a lifestyle you lead or the positive energy you contribute to the world, and it just bums me the fk out. Honored to be one of many that were awed by Seiji’s riding over the years, and I hope his soul is in a restful place now.
