Kicking off our first addition to the Young Guns category for 2014 is 13 year old Japanese skater Mirei. For our new readers out there who don’t know, the Young Guns category is where we spotlight unsponsored up and coming riders with tonnes of talent and potential. Some of you might have spotted her coming 3rd at the NASS Pro Contest (UK) last year – up against riders twice her age – and Mirei clearly loves skateboarding and is super dedicated as she manages to turn out more mini edits on her YouTube channel than I think I’ve ever seen! What’s also pretty crazy is that she’s clearly comfortable with park, street and mini ramp – and even a bit of freestyle! We’ve posted a couple of vids below but feel free to head over to her youtube page to watch more. Definitely one to watch out for in the future.
