Path Finding Japan | YES. Snowboards

DCP, JP and JF take on Ja-POW

“Go with the flow, trust the process and say YES to every opportunity that comes your way.” That sounds like a pretty good mantra in general, but an especially fitting one for a once in a lifetime snowboard trip with the YES crew.

JP Solberg, DCP and team rider JF Pelchat journeyed to the Land of the Rising Sun to sniff out some of Japan’s famous powder stashes and to sample some local delicacies. It seems the side effects of drinking shots of snake venom are huge cajones- if the insane tricks the guys were pulling off throughout the movie are anything to go by.

It’s been many years since JP Solberg burst into the snowboard spotlight, but he’s not lost any of the appeal from days gone by. It’s still as magic watching him ride now as it was during the old Absinthe days. JF Pelchat brings a frenetic energy to everything that he does, and his snowboarding is no different. A dynamic rider with a deep bag of tricks, he’s walking proof that wildcats never die. DCP brings his usual vigour to the table, and you’ll want to buckle in for the ride once you start watching.

Godfathers of the short and stubby revolution, the guys at YES brought their weird and wonderful shapes into the public eye and ensured that snowboarding will never be the same again. Boards like the 20/20 are constantly pushing the boundaries of what we can expect from snowboards and show what it’s possible to do with a big imagination and a voracious appetite for improvement. Check out our full review of the YES 20/20 and see what all the hype is about. You won’t regret it.

We’re inching ever closer to the kick off for winter 2019/2020 and if the early season dumps are anything to go by then this’ll be one for the books. So, grab a seat, settle in and watch Path Finding Japan to get yourself pumped for the months ahead. Enjoy.
