Rollercoaster series - Kazumasa "Junior" Yamada

A snow surfing life

We doubt there's a Houdini shell that has seen as much bottomless pow as the Rollercoaster set that belongs to snow surfer Kazumasa "Junior" Yamada. Want to learn how to surf the mountain? Have a peek in the life of Junior himself in this short film by legendary filmmaker Neil Hartmann, shot on the island of Hokkaido in Japan.

Rollercoaster Jacket: Surfing on snow never felt so smooth

The goal of our most advanced hard shell-series Rollercoaster is to transform the experience of wearing a shell layer. To achieve a feeling of full freedom of movement, the garment is draped from a single piece of fabric on a body to replicate the movements of mountaineering and freeriding. Combined with the waterproof, highly breathable and quiet fabric, Loop Hardshell™, being fully protected from the elements has never felt so smooth.

I wanted to live closer to the mountains. I wanted to live in a quieter environment. I wanted to live in a place with better snow and mountains, where I could cultivate the fields to grow vegetables and be as self-sufficient as possible.

Junior on why he left the city and moved to Furano

Junior works his way down the nooks of crannies of the mountain with utmost respect of his surroundings, embracing the true spirit of snow surfing. The Furano basin on Hokkaido is home to some of the most legendary snow falls on earth.

As long as my body is healthy, I want to continue my activities and lifestyle. To do that, I have to do yoga every day and be careful about food. I wish to be a snow surfer for the rest of my life.

Prepping for the mountain

To be able to harvest those deep powder days - a good routine is key. In Junior’s house, yoga mats and cast iron pots share the simply designed space with his backpacks and avalanche kits. Versatility is key in Junior’s life: The garments he wears at home keep him warm during his morning yoga routine as well as during his session on the mountain later in the day.
