FELEM in Japan

I just got back from a trip to visit the guys at FELEM in Japan who are a Japanese skateboard distributor out in the Sashima County of Japan. It’s a 1 hour train ride on the Shonen-Shinjuku Line from Central Tokyo (Shinjuku) out into the middle of the Japanese Country.

These guys have an amazing set-up and are easily the corest group of skaters I’ve ever met in my life. If you’ve ever seen the “P-Stone” video of the guys in Japan you’ll understand what i’m talking about. The beauty about these guys, which i learned while visiting them, is that they don’t need anyone to tell them how gnarly they are and they’d be just as gnarly if noone was watching.

If you ever have a chance to go to Japan, contact Tsuyoshi from FELEM and he’ll be more than happy to have you visit. Here are some photos!

    Ticorico, I’m sure there are some who are just as uninspiring as us Americans.
