Temptation Suppression
adidas skateboarding & monster children magazine
Tokyo is hard as hell to skate.
With amazing architecture comes 24-hour security, 14 million people clogging up the streets, and island humidity that will soak your clothes in 2 minutes flat.
And don’t forget about the constant stimulation… In a city where temptation rests on every corner—from street-side vending machines that serve beer and cigarettes to sex shops that sell any type of fetish your fucked up mind requires—it’s important to practice a little restraint every once in awhile to keep your eye on the prize. The adidas Skateboarding squad put their temptations aside for a week and pulled off some of the best skateboarding the city’s ever seen. Kanpai, homies!
