Spreading Positive Vibrations with Yuto Kojima
What up Clatlifers, my name is Yuto Kojima and I am a professional skateboarder…
We last met up with Yuto back in 2014 on Go Skate Day, since then he has been skating all over the world, getting sponsored by grizzly, releasing signature wheels with Bliss Wheel Co. and more!
What’s the skate scene like in Japan?
Kids are killing it!!! Check out the Japanese Skate Sauce crew clips from the Japan Tour earlier this year..
What are you doing when your not skateboarding?
When i’m not skateboarding i’m most likely watching skate videos. There is so much stuff on online nowadays! I also enjoy playing Call of Duty or shooting some photos.
What got you into skateboarding?
I skateboard because I love it and that makes me smile every time. That makes other people smile and that makes me happier. l do it for the love. Skateboarding makes me more creative. I think of how [a trick] happens or how I could make it better when I’m learning tricks. Skateboarding is, I feel, one of the arts that you can do to show people who you are.
If you were stranded on an island for the rest of your life and could only bring 2 people, who would you bring?
Manny Santiago and Billy Roper cause they are my brothers!
Watch Yuto take on Manny’s 5 on Flat challenge..
