The 22 year old Yuto Horigome just started skateboarding at the age of seven back in 2006. Timewarp into 2021 and he is already placing 2nd in the world street skateboarding ranking just behind Nyjah Huston. He started skating in the local Amazing Square Murasaki Skatepark in Tokyo, Japan. He went skating with his father, a former street skateboarder, who taught Horigome how to ride a skateboard. Since the age of 14, Horigome has been coming to the United States on several skate trips. Due to all the traveling, Horigome finished Japanese high school from a virtual online school.
„The Yuto Show!“ was filmed by Kevin Perez with additional filming by Eric Koston, Joseph Nicolaus, Eric Iwakura, Dan Abadi, and Ant Travis. Clocking in at just under 4 minutes, the clip gives everyone of us watching the chance to slightly understand the level of skill Yuto has hidden inside. When it comes to style and control, he’s at the top of the skateboarding ladder and he is only 22 years old.
Skating for April Skateboards, Yuto is a skater we will all have our eyes on for the next years to come!
