Hello everyone! I’m Ayumi, LGC Japan ambassador. Me, my Loaded Ambassador mate Brad Bennet and my partner Fifer just organized this event called “Superhill Session 1.0” this past Saturday March 8, with the help of Loaded Boards.

Our longboard community is still very small in Japan so we focused on welcoming everyone by starting with a beginners clinic and mellow but fun mini races and competitions. It turned out to be a huge skate & family picnic with music and good company under a beautiful sunshine. A perfect day to enjoy dry pavement after a long, cold winter.

We also arranged the screening of Greener Pastures Offshore after sunset as our good friends Patrick Switzer and Tamara Prader visited and shared a session with us in the same spot just a year ago. Fifer captured the whole day and edited this sweet video. Hope you enjoy our Japanese chill!
