It’s been quiet across the globe the last few days, so I took a few days off updating the site. Psyched to see a new yukipkoproject edit filmed by Takaya Matsumoto first thing this morning, and as usual this does not disappoint. Toyosu Jam Vol.8 features Yosuke Shiozawa, Hiroshi Denton, Yuta Watanabe, Shu Umeda, Akira Horii, Takumi Suzuki, Koh Yoshida, Atsushi Kato, Masashi Itani, and Yuki Itoh (the line at 4:32 is so good!). Nice mix of established names and new talent coming through, this is Japan!
Yukipkoproject is fast becoming the man when it comes to high quality flatland edits, and today we have a treat all the way from the land of the rising sun. Yuki just dropped an amazing Toyosu Jam Vol.3 with a whole variety of styles from Seiya Higa (that opening line at 00:18!), Syunsuke Nakamura, Koh Yoshida, Keisuke Maki, Takuya Higa (that pivot at 1:33, wow!), Sakura Kawaguch, Mizuki Takahata, Oomoto Hisashi, Hiroya Morizaki, Yuki Itoh not only a very talented film maker, pivot master in full effect at 2:42!, Masasha Itani gets the last line at 3:41. I suggest you get a cuppa and start your day out right, thank Yuki for this beautiful edit!
August is often the busiest month of the year on the site, and it certainly got started with a bang on August 1st! The man of the moment, Viki Gomez fresh back from the 2016 World Circuit title in Brazil goes back to the core day to day sessions at his home spot in Luxembourg and just like the CORE Part 1, this delivers at the highest level!
Highlights for me:
– The opening rolling dump truck pivot backwards xft ice cream pivot opposite side two footed dump truck pivot xft ice cream line is just beautiful and took me back to the riding of Dan Rigby, amazing!
– X bar steam kickflip regular bar halfpacker pivot opposite xft hitch xft halfhiker body varial to halfpacker at 00:39!
– I know it’s not new, but the hang ten pressure jump steam Viki does at 1:03 is timeless, execution is also on point!
– Backwards crackpacker in circles carved back to forwards crackpacker steam kick flip crackpacker, the technicality and sheer variety of moves Viki has is just incredible! This is years and years of crafting to get to this level, I could go on and on, but I’ll leave it here.
With Benjamin Hudson in Tokyo, Japan recently for the G Shock contest, it’s as good of an excuse for a jam at the Matsudo Mori No Hall 21 riding spot in Chiba. Combine one of the best scenes, and Jimalog and your onto a winner!
