01. Meet Skateboarding, Meet Daisuke Hayakawa3 min
Equal to martial arts like kendo (剣道), aikido (合気道), or sado (茶道, tea ceremony) Skateboarding is a “dō” – a path and a way, the physics of finding poetic lines with your board through various terrains, and an ethics towards your fellow skaters, your sport, and your art.
02. The Early Days8 min
Hayakawa recounts his childhood entry into the world of skating – a time when this American cultural phenomenon had barely taken root in Japan.
03. The Ride Begins6 min
Searching for a way to get more contact time with his sport that was largely outlawed and socially marginalized led Hayakawa to explore various pro-adjacent jobs.
04. The Way of Design6 min
Skateboarding is a way of expressing oneself. Hayakawa discusses his role in brand building, design, and the building of Japan’s rising skate culture on his way to becoming a pro skater himself.
05. Mindset: Freedom5 min
Skateboarding is freedom itself – an art that can be a sport, a sport that can be a culture – whatever you make it. There are as many ways of skating as there are skaters. What is the freedom mindset, and what can it do for your life?
06. Mindset: The City5 min
Experience Tokyo through a skater’s eyes, which like all urban landscapes, becomes a field of both obstacles and opportunities.
07. Skate Scene Japan: The Early Years10 min
Coach Hayakawa recounts the earliest days of skating and the handful of legendary skaters who first brought skateboarding to Japan. Encounters with these skaters showed Hayakawa that a life in skating just might be possible, and would be the way to a freer, happier self.
08. Skate Scene Japan: Building to Last7 min
The tale of how the DIY spirit infused skate culture in Japan through the 2010s from the building of skate parks, shops, brands, magazines and media culture to the very way of relating to one’s fellow skaters and to carrying oneself in the world.
09. Going International8 min
Hayakawa recounts his travel to the US at the dawn of the internet age, and how the exchange of videos through social media has contributed to the global spread of skate culture and the innovation of new tricks. It has also given rise to a new generation of skaters in Japan ready for the world’s biggest stages.
10. Modern Skateboarding Culture6 min

In the center of the games, during the first skateboarding competition in Olympic history, what was it like to work with Japan’s incredible athletes? Coach Hayakawa shares parkside tales that illustrate what it takes to bring home gold and skate with pride intact even after medals are painfully out of reach.
12. Mindset: Mastering Trauma8 min
For most, skateboarding is not a road to riches, but a road of pain, injury, and 90%+ failure. What lessons can such a challenging and dangerous sport offer us? It begins with mastering trauma, and accumulating the mental strength to let your physical abilities mature. Enduring pain and skating through fear while knowing your limits will put you on the path to success and enjoyment.
13. It Starts with a Deck20 min
Assembling your own skateboard deck is not only a matter of pride and personal style – it’s a skater’s way to customize every detail for the way their body rides. From grip tape to ball bearings, this is how to get rolling just as you like.
