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?
THATS RIGHT BABY, the 3rd annual Suckmycomp FGFS event is upon us. It’s going down next month on Saturday, August 25th at Stanton skatepark. We switched up the venue this year thanks to some harsh words of criticism via Mike Schmitt (who also made this dope ass flyer) and convinced me to switch it from the skatepark we’ve been doing it at the past two years (definitely for the better). It’ll be a $5 entry fee to compete in both pro and am classes and there will be a cash prize for 1st place in both divisions as well as a bunch of product to give out. Practice starts at 10am and the comp will begin at 11am. We will also be holding a best trick jam after the comp which is free of charge to enter. SAVE THE DATE, TELL YOUR FRIENDS, LETS MAKE THIS HAPPEN
IT’S ON. The SUCKMYCOMP 2 is going down at Silverado Skatepark again in Long Beach on August 12th. We’ll have a pro and am division, mini games, raffles, and a ton more. Come hang out, shred, and win some stuff. Cash prize for first place pro division. $5 to compete. TELL EVERYONE YOU KNOW!
The annual NORIDAORE Japanese FGFS comp is back and Devour Films provided amazing coverage for it to show the rest of the world what went down. These comps always look like so much fun and the Japan scene seems to be booming over there.
This will probably be the final update for all information involving our upcoming SUCK MY COMP fgfs competition (Besides reminders). It’s officially two weeks away from today and we couldn’t be more stoked to put this on to stimulate the community. Official info after the jump:
Here’s an updated flyer for the Suck My Comp coming up on August 6th. Stoked on how many companies are down to support this event. Shoutout to all you guys. As for riders, you better make it out to this event. We’ve got tons of prizes and giveaways. Come ride, compete, or just hang out!
