While staying in Numazu, a little town in Shizuoka, Japan, we decided to go skate a well known DIY skatepark in a farm on the side of a hill on the Shizuoka Peninsula.

IMG_1908We drove through hills and rice paddies before arriving at Makkachi Base.

IMG_1912We had to give the whole place a whip down as no one had skated it in a little while

IMG_1920Patricks bearing exploded, and he hadn’t changed his wheels in so long, that the bolt was being stubborn and not coming off

IMG_1938But eventually we got the session started

IMG_1976The natural hot spring rose from the middle of a river, where the now-standing onsen was built on top of it.

A thumbs up from Nori
