Freestyle Skateboarding
Freestyle Skateboarding, one of the sport's oldest styles, has been making a comeback in recent years. Using basically just a skateboard and a flat open area, Freestyle pushes the limits of technique and creativity in ways that seamlessly blend artful expression and logic-defying skills. Japan boasts some of the planet's top Freestylers and in this week's show we meet 2 teenage innovators with contrasting styles who regularly compete for the world title. Both are heavily influenced by their dads, one a Freestyle pioneer himself, the other an award-winning calligraphy artist.
