Gou Miyagi

If you came here hoping to see some skateboarding taken to a completely different level, today is your lucky day. This is some of the craziest footage I have ever seen. Highlights include Gou boardsliding a chain hanging between two posts?! Thanks to Jolin for posting this one to the Booooooom Facebook Group.

The video clip is from Gou Miyagi’s part from Overground Broadcasting, a film by The Far East Skate Network:


Jeff Hamada is the Founder and Editor of Booooooom. He lives and works in Vancouver.

Free Learning of the Day: Skillshare Classes

skillshare-01 skillshare-02 skillshare-03

This is for all you aspiring photographers, illustrators, and type designers out there! We’ve teamed up with Skillshare to offer you 1 month of unlimited access to all their creative classes, for $0. Free. You can sign up here for a premium account: Booooooom + Skillshare 30-day extended trial.

I’ve been personally trying out some of their classes and I just blazed through this great class on designing a single letter: “One Drop Cap Letterform at a Time” by the amazing Jessica Hische (I’ll always refer to her as the one who did that fantastic Moonrise Kingdom type). She has so many useful tips in this, especially when she talks about properly using handlebars and plotting points in Illustrator.

From what I’ve seen so far these classes are a great way to brush up on something you may have learned a long time ago or a chance to learn something completely new. Full disclosure: Skillshare did not pay us to make this post, however if you sign up through this link it will support our site! Absolutely no pressure to do so – I still recommend their site as a worthwhile resource even if you don’t use our link!

You can watch a preview of Jessica Hische’s class below!
