The Technine and F.O.D.T crew took off to Japan in search of new Jibs. After an insane week of filming, meeting cool people and getting to know this amazing country we were hit with the 5th largest earthquake to hit the planet in recorded history. Lucky for us we were up in the mountains and away from the Tsunamis and the mass destruction but the earthquake we felt was an experience that we will never forget. For the full story wait for the feature to come out in the next volume of Snowboarder Magazine for now here is a snapshot of our days in Japan leading up to the earthquake. Part one is a couple days in one of the coolest cities in the world. Tokyo!
Japan needs everyone’s help to rebuild. It is going to take many years of help from the rest of the world to get things back in order. I have friends in Japan who have lost loved ones and other friends who are braving the situation and being as positive about it as possible. Tokyo is out of Gas, Low on water and food and on top of all that is experiencing rolling black outs. There has also been no shortage or Tremors and earthquakes as well. Tokyo’s situation is nothing compared to where the tsunami’s hit in Sendai. This is where the real help is needed. The people of Japan are extremely selfless and care about one another’s well being just as much as their own. This is a truly amazing culture. If you have any extra money and want to help out please check these charity links below. Every dollar counts my friends. Pray for Japan!!!
