Twelve friends connected through skateboarding on the search for friendship, chaos and freedom. Documented by Ripzinger. – Arrow & Beast

Me – ripzinger joined this skate tour with new friends, all German skaters, to Lyron and Marseille, Annacy. Surrounded by all German language and having fun. No understanding of any words putt me in more focus on visuals. Surprising with culture difference and amazing on how funny they are and how lovely they are. Those experiences I had with them are definitry changed and form my impression of German people. Touring create different level of relationship. Deeper personality appear and understanding each other more. I am Japanese new friend for them and they warmly welcomed me and loving to having me around. I was really enjoyed time with them and felt I am part of them. This fact motivated me to do something with Arrow and beast. One year old skate shop “Arrow and Beast”, pretty new skate team had a first skateboarding tour. Get my photo together and experience D.I.Y photo exhibition. – RipZinger
