This Skateboarder Has A Totally Unconventional Approach To The Sport

Gou (pronounced "Go") Miyagi is a Japanese skateboarder from Okinawa whose online videos have been making some pretty big waves in the skateboarding community. That's because, as this video shows, Gou isn't following the traditional model of skating.

"I like the creative, rebellious spirit of street skateboarding - it's not about scoring points or showing off tricks," says Gou. Now in his 30s, he's being touted by some members of the community as the silent leader of a quiet revolution in skateboarding that's putting fun at the forefront. That much becomes clear watching him just once, but given the sheer awesomeness of his tricks, you'll probably watch it again.
