Most of you guys already heard of the 15 year old Japanese halfpipe slayer Ayumu Hirano, but we think it’s time to learn something more about this Olympic hopeful from the land of rising sun!
As you can see in this profile movie from Burton, Ayumu has a big bag of tricks and he’s been working on some new stuff recently. Check out the movie and follow Ayumu Hirano throughout the last few years across the world competing and making a name for himself in the snowboard halfpipe world. Dude’s been also trying triples into an airbag so there is a chance things might get really interesting at the upcoming Games!
