The Different Direction Crew escaped the lack of Euro snow by heading to Japan. This video shows off everything we love about snowboarding: travelling with friends; hiking in deep snow; exploring new places; getting some turns; blasting some airs; falling over, getting buried in snow; getting lost; finding your way again; laughing and doing funny shit with your homies.

This one is about the little things before, after and in between.

A concerning lack of snow in Europe meant that we (Sebi Geiger, Simon Pircher, Alex Fischer, Lukas Ellensohn, Sebi Madlener and Theo Acworth) thought it might be nice to go on a very last minute adventure to Japan. Alex had been before but the rest of us hadn't, but from what we'd seen and heard the decision to go was a no brainer. A couple of days later we booked flights, packed our shit and set off with nothing confirmed but a vehicle booking through a non airport based rental company. Luckily everyone we encountered was just so nice that we managed to pretty much improvise the whole trip, and we had a seriously good time. We’d highly recommend you check Japan out.
