Since its inception in the early 1970s, snowboarding has evolved and grown in countless shapes, forms, and styles. In this film, we travel to Japan to meet with Japanese Snowsurf Godfather, Shinzo Tanuma- creator of Moss Snowstick; to gain a deeper insight into the roots of this now global style of snowsurfing.
From the waves of the Japanese coastline, to the quiet mountains blanketed in deep snow, we flow with the environment, meet, and ride with the extended Moss family across Japan. Witnessing authentic styles, and learning about inspirations, connections, and environments, we are left with a deeper appreciation for snowsurfing’s past and an excitement for its future.
