just seen a mate post this on facebook and found a few more vids. Amazing. This dude is def pushing the boundries of conventional skateboarding. I have seen inventive skaters before but Gou Miyagi is by far the most insane.Although some of it seems pointless a lot of it blows the mind. I see similarities with the street art movement of the early 2000s in the way that in some cases a destination is picked and the art is created around that.
This would brighten up anyone’s day! 😀
Happy happy joy joy!

Funky ass sweets & wrappers from Japan! ‘Puccho’
Bought these in China, they were kind of like a mix between a haribo and a chewit. The packets are very cool and the individual wrappers all had different mental characters on.
