Refined but raw, Ryusei Takahashi bridges the gap between all-out freestyle and fluid freeriding.
Starting out at a young age in a family full of snowboarders, Ryusei’s stoke was bred in Japan’s famous peaks. Having done his time on the slopestyle competition tour, he switched to filming park laps and snorkel-worthy powder lines. Now riding alongside his country’s heaviest hitters, look out for his all-terrain attack in movies like “Ink.”
