The concept of freeline skates is nothing new, but seeing them used like this — well — that’s another thing entirely. Around the world people are strapping small inline skates to their feet, but extreme sports in Japan are taking it to another level with Free Skates. They’re small, skateboard-like devices that would absolutely make us do the splits and immediately tear every single muscle from the waist down.
Isamu Yamamoto is the skater showcased in the video and he’s absolutely incredible. The whole video is worth your time.
