Takaharu Nakai brings his big technical riding to the already stacked Pro team at Salomon Snowboards including Wolfgang Nyvelt, David Benedek, Louif Paradis, Annie Boulanger, Josh Dirksen, Jenny Jones, Sylvain Bourbousson and Scotty Arnold. 
 
“Takaharu’s ill.  I heard he filmed his part in the Alterna movie in just more than a month.  I’ve seen it and it’s heavy.  He’s on some next level shit and it won’t be long for the world to see that.  He is a loose individual and I’m so psyched to have him on the team.   Welcome Takaharu,” said Global Team Manager Java Fernandez. 
 
See for yourself.

Takaharu Nakai grew up riding the legendary powder of Hokkaido, Japan and first gained international notice at the 2002 Olympic Games in Salt Lake City.  He currently rides the varied terrain of Whistler Blackcomb where he combines technical precision with big lofty airs all over the mountain.
