Akifumi Hiraoka: Soul turns in the Canadian backcountry

Akifumi Hiraoka did not spin larger than a 720 in his part from last season, and we are completely content with that. We have never met Akifuni before but watching him snowboard gives one the feeling of old friends, like you have known him all your life. It is not often that you see snowboarding in the Canadian backcountry like this and the soundtrack made it even more special. This is one of favorite parts from this season.

Akifumi Hiraoka who played an active role in the Air & Style, the Toyota Big Air and more big competitions, is one of the pioneers of showing the Canadian backcountry to the Japanese people.
Aki always pushes himself, doesn’t care about age and having fun before everything else is his style which makes people who surround him laugh and be positive.

The music behind Aki’s part was made by Yosuke Onuma who is one of the great Jazz guitarists of the world, also Aki’s friend.

Yosuke made the song after watching Aki’s riding and images.
