IN THE EARLY MONTHS OF 2018, I RECEIVED A MESSAGE FROM THE LEGENDARY SHINPEI UENO, A GREAT SKATEBOARDER AND STYLE ICON OF JAPANESE SKATEBOARDING, ASKING IF I WOULD LIKE TO COME OUT TO OSAKA TO FILM FOR THE TIGHTBOOTH PRODUCTION, “LENZ 3”.

BEING A HUGE FAN OF THE VIDEO SERIES AND UNIQUE SKATEBOARDING ABILITIES, I WAS HONOURED SHINPEI HIT ME UP. SHORTLY AFTER I FIND MYSELF ON A PLANE, BRINGING ALONG MY GOOD FRIEND AND TEAM MATE, LOUIE DODD. WE WERE GREETED BY THE “TIGHTBOOTH” FAMILY WITH BEERS, PIZZA, AND AN AWESOME APARTMENT TO CRASH AT. THE MIX OF BEING ON A PLANE FOR 10 HOURS AND ARRIVING TO A NEW CITY ALWAYS GETS ME JUICED TO SKATE. AFTER A LITTLE REST AT OUR APARTMENT, LOUIE AND I ROUNDED UP THE CREW TO CHECK SOME SPOTS OUT. AS WE DISCUSS THE PLAN WITH OUR FRIEND SHINGO OGURA, HE REPLIED, “NO SKATEBOARDING TODAY.... BIG TYPHOON”.  FUCK!!!... AFTER A FEW HOURS OF CONTEMPLATING IF THIS TYPHOON WAS ACTUALLY GOING TO HIT, I SLOWLY NOTICED THE TREES SWINGING BACK AND FORTH RAPIDLY. SHORTLY AFTER, IT CAME OUT OF NOWHERE. BIKES BEING DRAGGED BY THE GALE FORCE WINDS DOWN THE STREET, RUBBISH BAGS FLYING IN THE AIR, EMPTY LAUNDRY BASKETS AND BINS SHOT DOWN THE STREET AT 100KM/HOUR. THIS WAS NO JOKE. OUR JAPANESE SKATE VACATION GOT OFF TO A BAD START, HOWEVER, ONLY GOOD TIMES WERE HAD AFTER THAT. THE SPOTS, BEERS, FOOD AND HOSPITALITY WERE ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE.

“JEBI” IS A DOCUMENTATION OF MY ENTIRE 3 WEEK TRIP, SHOWCASING THE BEAUTY OF JAPANESE CULTURE, THE INCREDIBLE SKATE SCENE IN OSAKA, THE AFTER EFFECTS OF TYPHOON JEBI AND HEAPS MORE.
