MFTBRAND Goodbye Session at ASPO Skatepark

These days a lot of great skateparks have to face financial difficulties. Unfortunately the ASPO skatepark (Japan) - home to the infamous MFTBRAND Crew - is one of them. Even though the local skaters tried everything they could to avoid the final shutdown - in the end - it just wasn´t meant to be. Despite this being a sad occasion Soichiro Kanashima, Yuto Guto and the rest of the guys and girls made an effort putting together this sweet edit of their last session for us to enjoy.

Yuto Goto: One Minute One Spot

Back in the day there was Japan's posterboy Chiaki Ito appearing on all the major contests (XGames, ASA etc.) worldwide. Today there are some new faces and talents stepping up the game and drawing a lot more attention to Japan from the rest of the rolling world again. We approached Yuto (one of the new talents) two weeks ago and received this edit almost 24 hours later. This guy not only impressed us with his dedication, but more with his solid skating talent that you can see in this edit. When he answered the questions that we sent him there was one answer that made us smile. His favorite skater from back in the day is Alex Broskow (and not for example Chiaki Ito). Yuto seems to be just too new-school to know any of the legendary skaters. But seeing his One Minute One Spot there is no sign of being new school anymore...he already seems to be conscience-proof and talented like the older guys.
