Known as “The Machine” to scooter enthusiasts. In 2006 when “Kota” was first introduced to freestyle scootering at the age of 10, it was within a mere 6 months he began competing. His interest in the scooter couldn’t be easily dismissed as a childhood obsession. Kota dedicates up to 5 hours everyday to excel at his craft out of sheer desire for winning and outdoing his own performance. And with verve, he has rapidly ascended the ranks after 5 years, to become the prototype of a competitor undoubtedly at the professional level in a yet to be officially recognized action sport.
He is the 1st competitor to win all major international competitions, and the first scooter rider to win the World Championship. Kota is the rare distinction between riders of leisure and truly gifted athletes. He just loves riding his scooter.
