On the way to the mountain with GNU’s Forest Bailey

Forest Bailey is never not skateboarding or snowboarding. Such was the case for the day and a half it took for him and the Mervin crew to make it from Tokyo to the Advance Cup in the mountains of Japan last spring. Jesse was there to point the camera as Forest weaved his way from skate park to rest stop to jib spot to mini ramp all on his way to the mountain. Thanks to Mike Miyazawa, Kenji and the whole Advance team.

Music by legendary snowboarder and Mervin family Wes Makepeace. To hear more Wes go to Whistler this winter.
