It is with deep regret that we inform you of the passing of Kyota Miyake, an amazing snowboarder, freerider and human being. Kyota suffered a fatal fall while riding in Hakuba, Japan on Feb. 24, 2015. His close friend Zach Hooper says, “He died doing what he loved.”
Ride in peace, Kyota. Thank you for your contributions to snowboarding and for the positive impact you made on all the lives you touched. Arigato gozamaisu.
