Warriors Skateboards and Colour Group Visit Japan

This being said, the respective Swiss shredders of Warriors Skateboards and Colour Group recently gathered up their funds and friends to pay a visit to the Land of the Rising Sun and embark upon their very own skate journey.

The resulting video just premiered on Live Skateboard Media and features likes of Henrique Goncalves, Igor Fardin, Michael Brunner, and more. LSM is also currently featuring a digital photo gallery of the trip shot by skate photographer Alan Maag
