We are super proud to say that Manny Santiago, Ginwoo Onodera, Alain Kortabitarte and Naia Laso have won different skateboard contests across the globe this weekend.

The always-positive Manny Santiago won the Gold Medal in the first-ever Central American and Caribbean Games, in the Street Skate modality. The championship was held in Santa Marta, Colombia, where the crowd witnessed a great fellowship among the skaters.

Little Ginwoo, on the other hand, just became Japan’s youngest National Skateboarding Champion ever! The twelve-year star skated his way to the Finals where he executed all the tricks he had planned to. In a short interview he gave just after winning the Gold Medal, he stated that he ‘wants to become a skateboarding star’. And we’re sure that he will succeed.

Lastly, our young riders Alain Kortabitarte and Naia Laso have won the bowl modality of the Spanish National Circuit contest, held in Malaga, Spain. Both riders have taken the gold medal home with very consistent lines and scores way higher than the silver medalists.

We’re more than stoked to see our young riders’ progression skyrocketing as we know that they’ll be representing JART in the biggest contests in the near future.
