Morocco, Japan, Russia...

It has been for a while when we last updated the blog. Much has been happening and the boys are still travelling all around the world. What did the guys do in Morocco? Snowboarding? In Africa?

Miikka Niemi gives us a heads up:

“Morocco was completelty mystery before going there. I had no clue if we would find any snow or anything to film in that matter. However I was blown away by the terrain, people, landscape and climate. There was for sure enough snow to snowboard. In matter a fact we had so many places to film that we almost ended up not having enough time to film everything worthy. I’m really happy about how the whole trip turned out. Waiting for the next trip to Africa for snowboarding.”

After Morocco some of the guys flew to Japan while the other crew was filming powder in Russia.

“Japan is the country of powder snow and crazy fan culture. That’s exactly what we found there. Lots and lots of snow. It was dumping so hard for 7 days in a row. Lot of cool places just next to the roads. Lot of pillow lines and powder turns. It was a great trip indeed. The start for the trip also couldn’t be any better, first and second place in Toyota Big Air for Antti (Autti) and Risto (Mattila)”, Niemi points out.
