If you know anything about skateboarding, you know how hard of a sport it an be to master. It’s long been said that Rodney Mullen is the best freestyle skateboarder on the planet, and knowing a bit about skateboarding myself — I would personally have to agree. After all, Mullen did invent freestyle skateboarding – pretty much.
However, there is a video making the rounds of 17-year-old Isamu Yamamoto absolutely crushing it on a skateboard. So fun to watch!
Isamu Yamamoto is a Japanese world Freestyle skateboarding champion. At age fourteen, Yamamoto took first place at the World Freestyle Round-Up Skateboarding Championships in British Columbia, Canada. He was the first person to win the World Round-Up Freestyle Championships using two skateboards at the same time.
Here is a video of Rodney Mullen in action. You can clearly see that Yamamoto is heavily influence by Mullen when it comes to his style of skating.
