Ginwoo Onodera first saw a skateboard on a family trip to Venice Beach, California and instantly fell in love. After returning home to Yokohama, Japan, Ginwoo got a skateboard shortly after his 5th birthday. From that point on, he laser-focused on progression, pushing himself daily while developing the mental strength needed to persevere through the pain involved with learning to ride a skateboard. Like any kid in any sport, Ginwoo says his goal is to one day be a world champion. After watching him skate, it becomes obvious he has the skills to actually do it. Outside of skating, Ginwoo enjoys hot springs, cycling, and furthering his education with his love of math and foreign language.
