One of the really special things about skateboarding is the lens it gives us to view cities in a totally different light from everyone else. Skateboarding through a city’s streets, up, on and down sidewalks makes us acutely attuned to the ebb and flow of a city unlike anyone else. We all can also easily relate to the sensation of discovery when we cruise through city streets where the journey is as much of the experience as the destination. This impromptu rawness that characterizes a night(or day) out street skating is captured beautifully in this edit from NYC’s Prize Fighter Cutlery while out in Tokyo’s streets.
Plenty of unconventional spots, and even more unconventional approaches to skating them. Featuring Katsumi Minami, Akihiro Iida, Hiroki Muraoka, Shogo Teranishi, Leo Valls, Connor Kammerer and friends: Eby Ghafarian, Kenshiro Yagi, Masanori Uruma, Mikey Cheah, Yoshi OPSB, Toriotoko.
Check out the edit, it’ll definitely stoke you and your crew to head out street skating! – HK
