DC Transitors 2: Episode 1 – Japan

The boys of DC Snowboarding are back for round two of DC Transitors. Over the course of the season, the crew will be touching down in four different locations to pilfer powder, handle street rails, hit backcountry cheese wedges, and explore new terrain. It’s a country-hopping, time zone-changing, storm-following, season-long road trip. In the first video, Torstein Horgmo, Iikka Backstrom, Sebbe De Buck, Stefi Luxton, Jordan Morse, and Justin Fronius head to Hokkaido, Japan, where they dip into The North Island’s prolific backcountry and enjoy daily refills during the country’s snowiest month, Japanuary.

Filmed by Sam Sosnowski, Pierre Wikberg, Craig Gouweloos, and Gabe Kocher. Edited by Sam Sosnowski.

Follow the DC Snowboarding team as they crew up and travel around the globe in a "Holy shit, I wish I was there," behind-the-scenes look into the blood, sweat, and beers of getting the shot. TRANSITORS is a unfiltered glimpse into the process of producing snowboarding videos, loaded with A-grade action and all-around DC good times. For TRANSITORS 2, the winter road still beckons and this season the team hits the bricks, crossing the Pacific to Japan and Russia, heading to the great white Canadian North, and dipping below the equator to South America. From freezing nights in the streets to bluebird mornings in the backcountry and jet lagged days in between, experience this transitory migration in the raw, uncensored and hustle-fueled style that only DC can provide.
