Go Skateboarding Day Japan

Go Skateboarding Day JapanI must admit that I was longing to be in Tampa for the annual Go Skateboarding Day event. I still have fresh memories of bustin' that pole jam at the top of the Bro Bowl and crusin' down the bowl with the likes of the SPoT crew, John Montesi and the Westside homies, as well as 150 other FL locals. June 21, 2006 was seriously one of the greatest days of my life and I still can't believe it went down the way it did.
On June 21, 2007, I thrashed in Yokohama, Japan, the second largest city in Japan next to Tokyo. The skate scene here in Japan is herra sick, and thanks to Jed Davis, I was fortunate enough to link up with some solid street soliders. John, Natsuki, Shun, and myself thrash on the regular and had a righteous time on June 21, 2007. We skated around Sakuragicho, Minatomirai, and China Town in the Yokohama metropolis. It was a fresh session, both on our boards and at the corner store with tall boys in the streets.
Check out some more photos of our night of schralping at the "My Parents"/NECROWAVE site.
Tampa, FL, I miss you! -Sadam
