There’s compromise, then there’s a life lived fully in the mountains. Yuya Nakayama made his mark with a commitment to the later.
Like an alpine wizard, Yuya Nakayama casts a sideways spell on everyone that’s lucky enough to meet him. He’s lived it all: first as a multi-disciplined competitor, then in the backcountry, and latest as a park builder and event host. Fully steeped in style and expression, his riding and personality are as authentic as they come.
