So next friday we’ll leave for Japan… finally ^^. It’s been quite some time since we visited my wife’s parents but we managed to go to them for this christmas.
We are going to Hokkaido, north of Japan. The weather there hits quite bad ( -23 during night ) but has the most beautiful snow i ever seen. I’ll bring my snowboard with me so today i decided to prepared it a little.
I’ll do the blades once there… i don’t know really what will happen to her during the trip, kinda scared.
Here she is a Nitro Target Select 165 Wide, a very entry level board. i’m not that good in snowboarding since i started last year.
Today i took a moment to install this brand new Burton Aluminum stud mats.
I’m not a really sporty guy but i always wanted to try do snowboard and last year i started! It’s been love at first sight even the many hits i took i couldn’t stop get up and move on.
The gear i took is very basic, an entry level Nitro board with low budget Raiden bindings (about 220 euro total), only in the boots i invested some more money… for me an happy foot gives always an happy ride ^^
Anyway yesterday i was pleased by receiving by mail the 2010 NITRO catalogue!
simply well done…

Turning it back, the bindings section
Inside some very nice photos.
as a present inside some nice stickers.
A really nice surprise was that the same company who import Nitro here also started import Osiris and Adio brands, I had some Adio skate shoes directly from USA via ebay, wonder Osiris how they are…
Well i don’t think i’ll took some new gear this year even if i’m going three weeks in north Japan on 18th December, i’m still a “novice” and a long way to go before someone can call me raider LOL!
