Skateboarding in Japan comes with all sorts of logistical challenges. Security is fast and strict, giving you very little time to skate most spots. We traveled through cities with blistering speed and saw so much so fast. But Raven Tershy, Ishod Wair, Peter Ramondetta and Kevin Terpening followed our stoked Japanese leader and legend photog Rip Zinger and Arto Saari photographed the whole thing, which you’ll find in What Youth Issue 13. The movie portion will be out February 2 and in the lead up we’ll take you behind the scenes.
Below are some snaps and framgrabs from our very own Michael Curk and Kai Neville.
Shot on Red, super 8mm, Black Magic, and Sony dscrx100 mk4.
