Look up, and keep looking—whenever Raibu Katayama drops in, it’s a free chiropractic adjustment for onlookers.
Stratospheric superpipe methods and back-to-back double corks are just the tip of Raibu’s silky smooth iceberg. When he’s not podiuming at international events like the Burton U•S•Open, this high-velocity, high amplitude ripper can be seen sending it in the backcountry for films like “Ink,” or lighting up pop-up transition sessions with his expressive style.
