If you’ve been paying attention, you would know who Soichiro Nakajima is-straight from Japan, clean style and a different set of tricks from what you’re used to seeing. It’s easy being the big fish in a small pond as it would be for Soich to stay just skating in Japan.-Anthony Claravall
Thanks to all my sponsors, the Shonan crew, all my friends, my parents, Anthony, Joe Brook, Ewan, the Element crew, and skateboarding.-Soichiro
