SEND IT! – Red Bull in Japan

Posted in: Features

After the Red Bull team visited USA and Europe with the "Drop-In” tour in previous years, it was now time for Asia and Zion Wright, Ryan Decenzo, Torey Pudwill, Margie Didal, Alex Sorgente, Jake Wooten and Maxim Habanec went to Japan where Ginwoo Onodera and Yumeka Oda joined the crew. The tour began with a demo in Tokyo and ended in Osaka where the summertime temperatures brought some sweat-soaked night-demo time. We take a look behind the scenes through snapshots of the crew. For all the action you have to wait till October, when the official tour clip will be released.

"I think my favorite moment in Japan was when Ira stole the hotel trolley for the bags and pretty much used it like a skateboard. He went down the street for a few hundred metres and the ladies from the reception were chasing him down. Another one is the skateboard blanket. Jake fell asleep in the van and Ryan covered him with all our skateboards and called it skateboard blanket so that Jake could sleep comfy."

But lots of them are a no!

"I was surprised how much we got kicked out of spots in Japan. The security gives you the 🙅 and usually they are quick about it so you have to get your tricks quick."

Japanese street food hits different

"Japan is such a beautiful country, much larger cities than I originally imagined. The food was my favorite part, sushi and waygu and so many different unique options. My personal highlight was getting to go to the Pokémon center"
