We just finished off our second "Horetaze" party in Kichijoji and right here is the pic of the flyer taken by kam.iokan.de

"Horetaze Rollerblade" is a series of events I have started with friends since the spring, when we had the Clip4 premiere. Always dreaming of the local skate shop or a skatepark to hold premieres and parties for us, we finally got off our asses and did it ourselves. Yeah that's right! D.I.O!!

But having a skate video premiere is just an excuse to hold a party in my opinion now.(btw, SayWord 3, I approve!) The main purpose of the event is to just have a place to have fun and meet friends off skates. Which I think everyone is forgetting nowadays.

So here you go, skate nerds in Tokyo taking charge in our own hands!
 
Thanks to everyone who came out and next time I hope you dance with me. 
Hey next time you come to Japan, maybe YOU can catch a "Horetaze!" 

more pics after the jump.

This is the video from the Valo08 tour Paris stop, session at Ivry. Alex was hurt at the time so mainly Bailey shocked everyone through the whole session. Not to forget "The Julio" with his perfect full torque and soul grind on the wave ledge. Peep me in the video with the full torque. Yeah man! haha

前回のエントリ紹介したエディーの動画の続きで、今年の夏の旅の思い出を。
パリで運良くValoのツアーに便乗できた時の映像がまだネットに残ってました。イエス!
僕もフルトークで登場しています。イエス!ラッキー!
ツアーの写真はこちらこちら

Valoと言えばあのフリオとの対面ですが(ビデオと同じだあああ)、この日はとにかくベイリーがすごかった!

ピクチャ 6.png

Just getting ready for the skate video premiere party next week. Its not our video but its just another excuse to get together and have some fun. Its our second premiere following the one for Clip 4 held in Spring. My job is mainly making the flyers and any design output to go with the event. This time I'm trying out the retro printing machine. Its very cheap and prints on craft paper. The printer is in Osaka. That should say it all. 
Looking to have some fun printing random stuff in the future!

Worship or Wear? "Aggressive" skates are meant to be worn and grinded. 
Somethimes I like to get medieval on my wheels too. Not from a hard skate session, but because these wheels sucked sooooo bad. Soft, square and slow. KILL KILL KILL! Shame on you!

Next time boy, pick a better wheel!

Check out Sho in this quick YAH edit, filmed and edited by Eddy Lookback. posted here

The concrete skatepark is the new EGP18 they made in Paris and we got to go there on our last day of the trip. Tricky obstacles and unbelievably smooth concrete. It was on the sketchy side of Paris too, some place tourists would never go. Big ups to Lookback for the edit! 
"Everybody hates Lookback" 

Expect some more YAH edits soon? Maybe...

IMYTAサンフランシスコ、USD Psirus、EnglandClothing、Leap of Faith。
2000年あたりかな、インラインスケートの新時代到来。
MINDGAMEのBRAIN FEAR GONEとUSDのCoup De Tatが出たのもこの頃で一番バブリーだったな。かっこいいアマチュアもたくさんいたし、とりあえずみんなフードかぶってたよね。当時の俺は高校生で学校にスケートを持っていって毎日スケートしてたよ。まるでフミナガ。

まぁまぁ僕の思い出はこれくらいにして、DYNAのファーストビデオ。
長いですが、最高や。フリオ地獄や〜。

rome-sds-consolidated-snowboard-boots-drunk-5.jpg

Checkin out Hypebeast and found this. Already!? Consolidated is acting fast this time around and it could get pretty ugly. In my previous entry I mentioned Nike's involvement into snowboarding and wether it was really all that bad. 

It was the same argument with NikeSB and I personally don't know yet if Nike's involvement in skateboarding was a bad idea for the industry or not.

But, it looks like small companies inside the industry are suffering pretty bad and their not afraid to speak up. I read up on the interviews and the "support SNOWBOARD companies" slogan and "Don't Do It" campaigns sounds more like a fight for a man's (mainly Birdo's) freedom and keeping the "American dream". And skaters all over the world are responding and helping out to keep one of their "brother" stay in business... Sounds touching and beautiful but hey, aren't Consolidated's images all anti and hate? Is hate the only way to protect something? 

Support skater-owned? More like support skater-owned owners.


I'm sure there are skaters and riders finally making a living off Nike? I would argue.
  
read about the D.D.I. ARMY and the campaign here and get informed. You decide for yourself.

Being a sneaker head myself, I say definitely "Wear". "Worship" is for teenagers.
