VANS - FIRST LAYER JAPAN

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.
