Yuro Nagahara is a young ripper from Nagasaki, Japan. He came to California for several AM Combi competitions, where T-Mag immediately noticed his super smooth and flowing style, mixed with an incredible talent for skateboarding. We’ve sponsored Yuro for a few years and it was high time to turn him Pro and recognize his incredible skateboarding with a model of his own.
Creating art for a young skateboarder is tougher than it seems and T-Mag called up H-Street super artist Fian Arroyo to get ready for the task. To both their delight, Yuro had some excellent ideas around traditional Japanese dragon art, which is totally up Fian’s alley. The three of them spent a couple of months working this totally killer design. Even Yuro’s dad got in on the design party and helped with some traditional lettering.
The Tengu warrior is a historical Japanese folklore super natural being. Yuro’s graphic shows off a classic and mythical Japanese’s sea serpent, engaged in a mortal battle with the god-like Tengu fighter.
Yuro's deck is manufactured in California by Legend Skateboards on a slight modern-retro shape. Legend Skates has also created the innovative and totally unique design called Pop Wedge, which has an extra layer of dyed hardrock Maple laminated into the tail and nose, using a special vacuum technology molding process that creates a better, longer lasting pop.
It's available in a standard laminated Maple construction, with the Pop Wedge design.
Yuro's model is also available in a modern-retro Park& Pool Shape and basic Pop shape at 8.0 and 8.25
32.5 X 8.5 / NOSE 6.75 / TAIL 6.75 / WHEELBASE 14.75
