TAKAHARU NAKAI INFO

Nakai started his season with a 4th at the X-Trail Jam quarterpipe in December, where, in front of thousands of screaming fans, he flexed his versatility with a big bag of tricks that included McTwists, switch McTwists, backside rodeos and switch backside rodeos. Soon after he packed his bags and flew to Canada for his second season of filming with Alterna Films in and around Whistler, BC. Not one to sit in one place for long, Nakai was back on a plane in late February to head home for the Nippon Open. Once again he impressed with a giant list of tech moves that made it hard to believe he hadn’t seen a pipe in over a month. Everyone thought Nakai would be in for a podium battle that day, but an unfortunate accident occurred when he missing a landing and broke his wrist. Despite the setback and a season cut short, Nakai still rode strong enough in the early season to log an impressive section for 7Samurai’s latest film, as well as Alterna’s upcoming release, “KNOCKOUT.”
