Make Your Own Snowboard

North Face Gravity Niseko is hosting a workshop this October to make your own snowboard.

Atsushi Gomyo has been snowboarding since his days as an elementary school student. During his early teens he became quite successful as a snowboarder and in his twenties began riding for the Niseko local Gentemstick team. His involvement with the Gentemstick family was what led him to become interested in the craft of board-making. This October, you could make your own board with Atsushi in an exclusive workshop right here in Hirafu. Make your own original board, and walk away with a hand-made board for ¥30,000 or less.
