ABOUT US

TACKLE STEREOTYPES

Winning and losing. They’re both essential to competitive sports.
But skateboarding is more than that.
It’s about expressing yourself, respecting each other, and celebrating your fellow skater.
And self-expression isn’t just limited to the tricks you do.
It’s also in what you wear, the music you listen to, and the way you live.
Unlock yourself and your personality. It’s what we need in our increasingly diverse world.

 

‘UPRISING TOKYO’

 

Tackling stereotypes and discovering infinite possibilities.

What is UPRISING TOKYO?

– SKATEBOARDING FOR ALL –

 

“UPRISING TOKYO” aims to grow the sport of skateboarding and its culture throughout Japan and the world. We hope to spread the essence of what makes skateboarding great and bring value to its community by breaking down barriers. In this project, we’ll bring together entertainment, fashion, and skateboarding’s unique culture to spark a new movement. The competition will be conducted in separate divisions for men (pro/am) and women (pro/am).
