Today marks one year since the passing of Japanese friend and skateboarder, Taisuke Yokoyama. I met Taisuke on my first trip to Yokosuka when I stopped into Double Faith skate shop. It was from then on I would see him at Umi-Kaze Kooen cruising with some unforgettable style and finesse on a skateboard. I became good friends with Taisuke and his best friend Hon-chan. A couple months later we all started filming together for Hon-chan’s first video, “Around.” We were going out a lot together fiilming, staying out, skating sometimes til 4 in the morning, and then wake up the next day and go teach English to people’s children while barely being able to keep my eyes open. The last time I saw Taisuke was about 2 years ago in Tokyo at Colin Read’s video premiere of, “Tengu.” It makes me sad knowing that I’ll never see him again, but I am glad to have known such a nice guy.
Lemon-dipped, Head to Toe! James Coleman now rides for Broadcast Wheels and they gave him a proper introduction by putting together this video part. Take a minute to watch one of our favorite skaters James Coleman, aka the Papi-Seed, the big Pappadapulous bring his sweet G maneuver’s to underground spots worldwide!
Well with a big weekend on Instagram, what better way to start off a Monday with a new “Widget” on the right hand side there. Introducing the Sleeping Horse Instagram account! Whoop! Click that button for all things Sleeping Horse instagram related. You’re bound to see some skateboarding, maybe some cat photos, and probably some pictures of things that fall outside of either of those two categories.
Yup! Looks something like the image above, once you get there. Here are a couple skate related photos from the weekend skating around in Emeryville, CA with Fakie Ollies and Evan Collisson.
Witness the brute strength and power of Corn bred and fed, Indiana Hoosier, Alex Greemann, going up and over doing his best Jake Johnson impression. Some thought his wallie attempt was going to end a little like the HULK just ripping through a concrete wall, but he was able to go up and over while keeping the concrete jersey barrier intact.
Evan Collisson, aka, Lil’ B the Pole Hopper with a sweet switch Pole Jam. Schwing!
DAGARCI is back with their 2015 footage dump. Thanks guys. It’s fun to see what you all have been up to these past 11 months. And if that wasn’t enough, I just happened to go to your YouTube page and stumble upon some Takaaki Shinzato footage released over a month ago which I’ll just put right here. He was away in Okinawa for a year, but is back in Yokohama with the same great style and a new hair cut. Lookin good Junior!
