orange things Featuring Jake Kuzyk, Justin Phipps and More

Street snowboarding is a demanding yet rewarding art, one that’s beautifully captured in K2 Snowboarding’s latest short film, orange things. The team made the most of prime early season conditions in Salt Lake City, UT before flying to the Japanese city of Muroran to stack clips there. As evidenced by the video, it was well worth the trip.

Here’s a word from K2 Snowboarding about orange things:

Muroran is a fishing village and port city located on the south side of the island of Hokkaidõ. Often referred to as Japan’s “North Island,” Hokkaidõ is storied for it’s terrain, deep snow, incredible food, and cultural warmth. The city of Muroran overlooks the Uchiura Bay, home to whales, dolphins, the Mt. Komagatake volcano. With a metro population hovering around 100,000 people, the city of Muroran and it’s surrounding villages is packed full unique terrain, textbook features, and aesthetically pleasing spots to snowboard on.
