Chill and Thrill 4

RoundAbout Pro Shop in Hakuba puts on an annual Chill and Thrill camping event.  It was my first year.  Camping by the river with the backdrop you see in this video will most definitely plant big seeds of appreciation.  They've sprouted in my heart quicker than I thought. I'm already planning my trip back with my family in tow.  Where should I vlog or report on next?  Comment on my facebook page with your recommendation.

About this video

Baneo and I were introduced about 4 years ago and we get along great! We see eye to eye on so many things. I'm happy to call him my Senpai. He teaches me incredible facts and tips about Japan that could be learned in books, but they'll be very hard to find. So when he asked me to come to the beautiful destination of Hakuba, naturally I was excited. Here's a video I made to teach to help Baneo with his brand Arbor Skateboards in Japan. As well, roundAbout is doing amazing things to grow ridership and I'm always down with people like that. We didn't have any budget but that's ok. This type of project is dear to me so I was delighted to help out if it means more people out of the city and into the mountains. It's my belief that getting out and learning slightly dangerous sports toughens ones character. In fact, in this video you'll see my daughter doing her thing. What a sweet sound that is, "Papa. can we go skateboarding?"

 

 Keiji Masuda is a great teacher and it shows in this video.  Sliding is a lot easier than you may all think.
