Japanese riders dropped jaws in the 2020 (21) Olympics with Sakura Yosozumi taking the gold so we’re keeping an eye on her and teammate Mami Tezuka, who has been showing off her inner hesh all over the US since then at backyard pools and gnarly DIYs spots. The creativity and skill of Bryce Wettstein, who recently went pro for Stereo, is always a joy to see, as are the classic stylings of Minna Stess, who recently turned 16.
PROS: 1. The event was held on Amy Caron’s birthday. 2. The weather was pristine. 3. Girls & Women from across the globe showed up & ripped. 4. Lots of money was raised for survivors of domestic violence. 5. Many skateboarders won prize money that will contribute to their skateboarding dreams & aspirations.
