About the trip

February 2015
Hokkaido, Japan

Taking professional riders Richie Carroll and Ben Comber with me we set out to achieve something I'd ben attempting for almost 10 years. To ride lines to the ocean and get waves in the same day!

What we did

Scouted for 2 weeks. Drove over 3000km. Poured over maps and photos. Watched and waited for the weather... and then scored nice offshore wind, good waves and some great snow, all the way down to the beach. Not to mention the best campsite I've ever found at a place that we will forever call Miracle Bay.
