Sora Shirai is one of the many excellent rippers coming out of Japan. The newcomer has insane street skills, and a deep bag of tricks are up-to-par and battle against the most elite in the competition circuit. Sora proved this point in 2019 by pushing his way from the bottom of the S.L.S. London Olympic qualifier making into the finals and came in seventh place. He then did it again at the Dew Tour Olympic qualifier in Long Beach, where he started in the qualifying rounds and made it to the finals. Sora has the strategy and awareness of when to flick on the switch and begin dropping hammers. A prime example was during the final at Dew Tour, where he shocked judges and the crowd with a 540 kickflip down the eight-star, earning him a second-place finish. It is without a doubt Sora is one to watch out for in the upcoming Tokyo Summer Games.
