Fukuoka Loco Coverage

It’s been a while since we’ve seen a contest out of Japan (or anywhere for that matter), but YSO put on the “Fukuoka Loco” competition this past weekend and it looked like a bunch of fun. It’s really great to see the Japan scene in full effect. They house some of my favorite riders and really bring a unique style to FGFS, so this really puts a smile on my face and great to see some dudes out there that I haven’t seen ride in a while.

The format on this is interesting. For one: they combined trick track and FGFS. Not sure how I feel about that since the styles are hard to compare, but still cool to see everyone together. The bracket style play is interesting too. That format hasn’t really been adopted in the states, maybe it could be cool to implement?

RSK ended up taking the win on this one with Takashi taking 2nd place. Some solid riding all around though. I got word that they’re doing another competition in Osaka next. Maybe see you there?

BACK TO TRACK RECAP + RESULTS

This past weekend on Saturday we held our highly anticipated BACK TO TRACK trick track competition. It’s the first trick track specific competition that’s happened since around 2009 and it was a major success! To give some info about how the day went, we started at our original spot and people started showing up. It was the PERFECT spot. Basketball court, poles to spin off, and a bank next to it to do tricks on.

Almost immediately, a park official came up and told us we all had to leave. It was a scramble to find a new spot and get everyone there, but we ended up at a park in long beach that worked out perfectly (sign of relief). We had about 50 people total and the energy was great. With the resurgence of Trick Track riding, I think people were excited to have an event specifically for it. We’re gonna be dropping a bunch of photos from the day this week as well as a video recap on our Youtube channel, so keep an eye out for that. If you didn’t make it out, I highly recommend you make it out next year cause it was a blast. Thanks to everyone who came, supported, rode, and everything in between.
