Some of you may already know Tak loves skateboarding.
He fell in love with skateboarding when Imari Tones toured in the United States in 2012. We played some skatepark shows and that was when Tak decided he would start skateboarding even though he was not too young (not too old though).
Since then, Imari Tones has written and played some skateboard related songs, most notably “Born To Ride” on “Revive The World” album.
Also some of you may have seen the “Beginner Skateboarding Movie” Tak posted on YouTube some years ago.
Even though Tak still keeps skating, his life situation and surroundings does not allow him to make another dedicated skateboarding video.
However, this is something a bit unusual and we want to post it here, just to show you he is still skateboarding.
We played some small but important concert at El Puente, Yokohama (Nishi Yokohama), on 10th February 2018.
Before playing the last song of the night, Tak held his skateboard, with the “Jesus Loves You” sign on it, and did a skateboarding trick in front of the audience. The trick he did was called “Ollie Impossible” (or simply “Impossible”).
This trick “Impossible” is one of his favorite skateboarding tricks.
After successfully landing the trick at the 1st try, Tak says “Nothing is impossible with Jesus Christ”, quoting Philippians 4:13.
Not many rock bands do “Impossible” at their concerts, but Imari Tones does!!
