Madars Apse is back with another epic season of Red Bull‘s ‘Skate Tales’ series exploring lesser-known skate subcultures. The latest episode shines a spotlight on Takahiro Morita, a visionary and a driving force behind the evolving Japanese skateboarding scene. Morita’s unique perspective on skateboarding and life has earned him a well-deserved reputation as one of the most original and groundbreaking minds in skate culture. His creativity, combined with a relentless dedication to his vision, has shaped the Japanese skate scene, leaving an indelible mark on the sport as a whole.
The Japanese skate scene has long been known for its unique and innovative approach to skateboarding, reshaping the boundaries of what is possible on a board. At the heart of this cultural shift is the Far East Skate Network (FESN), a movement that has brought the Japanese way of seeing and being to the global skateboarding community. Through their eye-catching videos, FESN has not only inspired skaters worldwide but has also infused the skateboarding society with imagination and compassion.
Get a glimpse into the mind of a visionary skateboarder who has transformed the skateboarding world with his passion and ingenuity in the latest episode of ‘Skate Tales,’ above, and check out some of the projects we’ve worked on with Madars over the years, below!
