Whilst out in Cali earlier this year I was lucky enough to tee up a morning session with Taka Higashino to shoot some photo & video content.
We were blessed with prime FMX conditions, not a breath of wind insight and the sun was out in force for the morning session at Ronnie Faisst’s compound in Murrieta. Taka is a mad man and it was really cool to see how he rides a session, each rider is different in the way they tackle their daily sessions. It’s almost an art in how each rider achieves trick perfection.
Taka sure didn’t hold back, throwing huge tricks one after another, smooth and extended every time! With the conditions being perfect we were really able to make the most of the opportunity and gathered a bunch of real quality photo and video content.
It’s not everyday you get to shoot one of the best Freestyle riders in the world, especially one as cool and down to earth as Taka, his broken English is bad ass and makes for a good laugh! It was a pleasure shooting whilst out in Cali, definitely a highlight of the trip!
