In this paper we investigate the influence of directed motifs on the synchronization properties of Kuramoto oscillators on directed networks. Building different types of sparse directed small world networks similar to the Watts and Strogatz procedure we establish that feed forward loops favour synchronization on directed networks. The paper highlights the importance of local network characteristics for synchronization.
