Ride Snowboards Takes Over Japan

April 12th, 2011 by

Austin Hironaka, Teddy Koo, Alex Cantin and Nick Hyne rip around Japan for two weeks riding everything from ghetto parks to gullies & trees.

Ride documented most of the trip with a GoPro backed up by a Canon 7d and the results allowed us to basically never stop make turns the entire time.

Footage featured in this edit include resorts around the Japanese Alps of Hakuba and Nagano Prefecture on the main island and resorts around Niseko on the north island of Hokkaido.

Some of the resorts include Hotaka Bokujo, Hakuba Sanosaka, Niseko Hanazono, Annupuri, Rusutsu, Kiroro, Teine. We had a lot of fun on this trip and really enjoyed the new places and friends we made along the way.

We love Japan, and with the disasters that had struck after our return home it was a heart breaking reality of how small and fragile this world we live in really is. Please continue the support the relief efforts of Japan. Donations can be arranged through redcross.org
