Resurfacing What Youth’s Skate Antics in Japan for Their ANONYMOUS ZONE Video

About a year ago, surf and skate platform What Youth released ANONYMOUS ZONE, a short skate film that took its crew out to the fair country of Japan, where they preceded to decimate its land and people… OK, perhaps a little harsh, but they did shred the shit out of its cities, stirred quite a commotion amongst the locals, and generally ripped through the country in search for more skate spots to hit. The result is one of our favorite Japan-based skate vids that offers as much a candid glimpse into the beautiful country as it does awesome street skating.

While the video is now a year old, there’s no reason why we can’t all enjoy it again, and hopefully introduce it to many who haven’t yet enjoyed its entertaining eleven and a half minutes. The adventure itself had renown skate photographers Rip Zinger (JP) and Arto Saari (US) at the helm, and features skaters Ishod Wair, Peter Ramondetta, Raven Tershy and Kevin Terpening. The Kai Neville-directed video, according to the fellas, includes “dodged relentless security guards, got very lost in translation, went to three different cities on bullet trains and in vans and ripped across all the country.” What fun! Enjoy the video in the jump above, and check out more vids from What Youth here.
