Time for a break!
Been a really active summer with mild weather, skate camp, skate lessons, skate classes and of course, skating every other time! Perfect chance now to escape the city for a month. Leaving on monday with the little one to hang with the in-laws in Japan. Mostly just chill time, bike rides through the rice paddies, lurking around old shrines up in the hills and lots of family meals. But for 7 days I'm gonna split off solo with a high speed rail pass, backpack and skateboard, for a little SKATEYOGI Japan tour to spread the stoke. Tune in on the instagram feed to check it out in real time!
While in Japan there will be more time to do a proper recap of last Friday's Breath and Beats Ramp Jam. Just wanna thank everyone who came out and to all the sponsors for their support! Skaters doing yoga, yogis skateboarding, everyone hanging out. It was a really rad time! And based off the feedback we'll definitely be doing it again in a few months so no worries if you missed the first one! Here's two pics from the event for now.
Last weeekend of SKATEYOGI classes for the summer!
Soggy forecast for the weekend here in NYC but you can still get your shred on at SKATEYOGI ramp classes at Skate Brooklyn. This will be the last weekend for classes. They will resume in September. Adults today at 11am. Kids tomorrow at 11am and 12:30pm. (Also the all ages Rise and Grind sesh tomorrow at 9:30am as long as it's dry).
