It was buddies at first sight. In 1999 Fos met Chopper, the legendary originator of the Osaka Daggers in all his colourful glory. Now the Dagger’s membership has grown and Fos has the pleasure of introducing the rest of the world to the whole cast of characters.
These days, no matter where you are in the world, you have instant access to everything that is happening in skateboarding. Thanks to Youtube you can watch any skate part that has been filmed in the last 20 years. Skateboarding is spreading around the world at an amazing speed, and if you turn up in even the world’s most remote cities to skate, the kids there will have seen all the latest company videos and will be completely aware of who did what down what and who left this company for that company. So just imagine going to a city and skating with a crew of people who have no concept of modern skateboard media whatsoever—wouldn’t it be almost indescribably refreshing? Well, there is such a crew, and here I’m talking about the Osaka Daggers.
