Ride Team Hits Japan Feb 2011
Shared By: Ride | April 12, 2011
Austin Hironaka, Teddy Koo, Alex Cantin and Nick Hyne rip around Japan for two weeks riding everything from ghetto parks, gullies, trees but mostly powder. We documented most of the trip with a GoPro backed up by a Canon 7d and the results allowed us to basically never stop and make turns the entire time. No building stopping and setting up this trip was about "Lets just Ride Japan"
Footage featured in this edit includes 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 have struck Japan so soon after our return home it was a heart breaking reality of how small and fragile this world we live in really is. Please continue your support of the relief effort for Japan. Donations can be arranged through www.redcross.org
