Japan Has Been A Interesting Few Days.

View From a window in our Spot. Holiday Niseko fellas hooked it up! Travel time was long and we made all the connections and bus. That was a nice start to the trip. Kop and I have been here so we had a idea as to what we were in for, but Terry and Cam well that was another story. 

With a first night hang and bed behind us we headed out for a Friday morning for some famous North Island pow. Needless to say it was found. 

Rode with Perrin from Niseko Holiday for a while on day one. He showed us some lines and was ripping. Introduced the boys to the sweet Japan pow, styles, and people.  

Super fun? Yes! 

Mad Cam beyond the Gondola. 

Terry Hyped to rip so much bottomless pow. 

So much energy. Happy humans doing happy things.

We came home for lunch and everyone in our sweet third floor spot. With so much travel coupled with lag and a drink or two the floor seemed to be moving. We looked around at each other and wondered if the other could feel it too. The earth was moving, it was a earthquake, about 3 or 4 in our area. 
We watch TV as the tsunami came in. Crazed, we ran some errands and took in a night session. When we returned we saw the massive destruction all over the media. Our hearts go out to all those who lost life, family, friends, and belongings. 

The second day we decided to ride away from it and rip some more pow in a new zone. 

Cam practicing with some tail. 

Great crew day two. More to come. Long story short, this is what it's all about.
