Vans First Layer Goes Japan
Each year snowboarders are constantly searching for the best snow
and venturing to Japan seemed like the perfect choice.
The plane was loaded with a unique squad of Vans european riders, mixing eclectic riding styles and approaches heading on a journey through deep powder and endless urban riding opportunities.
Riders, Nils Arvidsson, Valérian Ducourtil, Markus Keller and DBK went on a crazy powder mission to the northern island of Hokkaido.
Meanwhile a crew consisting of Sami Luhtanen, Will Smith, Cees Wille and Benny Urban explored the main island and looked to discover the exciting street spots on offer…street & powder is what it’s all about.
