Today is a good day! Yuki Itoh is like the Japanese version of Tom Sevisual in terms of videographer. The camerawork, lighting, and overall feel of this Toyosu jam edit is so beautifully relaxing, and if you are like me it will draw you in and time just stands still watching this. That’s not to mention the amazing riding from the likes of Jean William Prevost (the opening line at 00:15 and that 2:38!), Naoki Watanabe, Hidenori Ishizaki (1:18!), Masashi Itani, Takuji Kasahara, Misaki Katagiri, Yuki Itoh (3:20), and Ryosuke Takagi. Nice variety in riding styles and soundtrack by Valance Drakes & Ivan Shopov makes this one an edit you will watch over and over again! Wow!
Great footage from the recent Flat Games contest in Chiba, Japan featuring so much awesome riding in order from: Ryo Katagiri, Ryosuke Takagi, Nao Yoshida, Yorimitsu Miyata 00:48!!, Naoto Tamaru, Shinichiro Hara, Yasuhiro Uehara, Kazuma Nakajima, look out for the young ripper Takumi Isogai at around the 1:52 and the no handed spinning halfpacker whip halfpacker line at such a young age at 2:17, unreal! Masashi Itani, Keisuke Tanigawa, Naoki Watanabe, and Fumiya Kanna, great edit by Yasushi Kajiwala! Don’t sleep on this, underground japan at its finest, I believe Moto Sasaki organised this event. Thanks to Lee Musselwhite for the heads up on this one!
It’s a good day when yukipkoproject aka Yuki Itoh drops a new edit and today we have the Toyosu Jam Vol 4 to enjoy with plenty of treats from Mizuki Takataha, Takuya Higa, Naoki Watanabe, Masashi Itani, Yuta Watanbe, Yuki Itoh, and a guest appearance from Hiroya Morizaki. Definitely worth a watch!
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.
The clocks go forward one hour, that feel good factor that the extra daylight brings, more riding time equals more time filming and documenting what you do. April was a busy month!
Deco’s Chad Degroot kicked off the month and had this to say:
“Since I starting riding my head wants me to learn as much as possible and this includes bars backwards tricks. The beginning of this link I learned this day so to make more smooth flow and no scuffing. The middle has been a gem and great feeling to whip the backend around with no brakes and keep speed. The end is bars backwards and played a huge head game for a bit because I had to push so much momentum to get into the backyard position and pump to keep speed. Real excited to move past the 15 second persona and get onto the longer story of this trick.”
It’s always a good day when Yukipkoproject aka Yuki Itoh drops a new edit, this time the documented the Toyosu jam that went down yesterday, and once again captured this beautiful coastal town on the suburbs of Tokyo. Featuring Yu Yamammoto, Yuki Itoh, Masashi Itani, Takuji Kasahara, Naoki Watanabe, Kazuki Uoagawa, Nao Yoshida, and Mizuki Takahata.
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!
Watch the whole edit and enjoy the vibe with the riders feeding off each other, featuring amazing and diverse riding from Benjamin Hudson, Masashi Itani, Naoki Watanabe,Yu Shoji, Shuichi Osada, Akihiko Takahashi, Tomohiro”Penipee” Katayama, Koh Yoshida, Takuji Kasahara, Kazuma Nakajima, Moto Sasaki, Takumi Matsumoto and Yuki Itoh. Good times in Chiba!
Nice sunday treat here from the Buoyancy crew filmed by mmfilms, featuring Shuichi Osada, Akihiko Takahashi, Naoki Watanabe, Hiroki Iwata and Takumi Matumoto, deep in the japanese countryside.
September is always one of the busiest months of the year, and this year was absolutely off the chart. Take a check through my highlights and you will see what I mean!
September 4th will be remembered for Martti Kuoppa’s, 10 Stemlashes! You can always count on the boss to raise the stakes, as if this isn’t enough the description hints of a return to KGB? Great news! Someone looks like they are ready for flatark…
