One of the most progressive women’s park skateboarders joins the podcast! UNLEASHED is proud to welcome 20-year-old skateboard innovator Mami Tezuka from Shiga, Japan. In her exclusive interview with The Dingo, Danny, and Brittney, the two-time X Games medalist shares the keys to her progressive riding style.
Mami Tezuka was raised with skateboarding in her blood: At the age of three, she first stepped on a skateboard in her native Shiga, Japan, encouraged by her father’s passion for skateboarding. Riding skateparks and homemade ramps, Tezuka quickly built a trick repertoire beyond her age – a powerful mix of high airs and technical liptricks with a healthy dose of classic throwback moves. On the contest circuit, this unique riding style makes Tezuka an international podium threat: Accolades include two X Games medals (one silver, one bronze) in Women’s Skateboard Park and third place in the Vans Park Series World Championships. Additionally, Tezuka continues to push the boundaries of women’s park skating in critically acclaimed video parts for sponsors such as Blood Wizard Skateboards and Monster Energy.
