Yumi Tsukuda’s unique approach to modern-day street riding first caught our eye via Instagram, earning the then 19-year-old a spot on our International Flow Team in March of 2017. In January of this year, he booked himself a ticket from Tokyo to Long Beach to meet the team and ride for a month.
Yumi instantly vibed with the crew, and his style, creativity and motivation paired with his awesome attitude, led the team to a unanimous decision to put him on PRO before he went home to Japan.
Here’s a look at some of Yumi’s time spent Stateside… much more to come from this kid! Welcome to the team YUMINGPRO!
