Test Pressing is an all-new web series from CAPiTA’s Brandon Cocard that combines the beauty of snowboarding with music. The tunes are in fact composed by the man himself, so when Mr Cocard isn’t busy putting together mind-blowing snowboard edits, he keeps himself busy with music.
“We get to follow the boys cruising through a dreamlike Japanese winter terrain, and their smooth powder turns leave us longing for more”
In the second episode of Test Pressing, Brandon Cocard, Kevin Backstrom, Kazu Kokubo and Keisuke Yoshida head out to the safe haven for powder hunters – Hokkaido, Japan. When you head out on a backcountry bender in one of the most sacred places amongst snowboarders, you ought to do it well and get yourself a guide. Or, if you’re mates with Japanese legends like Kazu Kokubo and Keisuke Yoshida, just let them show you around.
We get to follow the boys cruising through a dreamlike Japanese winter terrain, and their smooth powder turns leave us longing for more. Their creative touch on how to tackle the Japanese terrain is mind-boggling, not to mention Brandon Cocard’s steezy one-footers and human rocket Kevin Backstrom’s ability to defy gravity.
