Stonp or Die Teaser 2015

Stonp or Die Teaser 2015

The teaser for the fifth annual offering from STONP just dropped and is packed with heavy riding from Japan’s crew of elite riders. STONP OR DIE features riding from the future of Japanese snowboarding. Kazu Kokubo created  STONP over five years ago, and sought to bring his friends together to ride, have fun, and according to him, “F—K shit up.”

“It’s a good crew of friends who have known each other a long time,” said Kazu of the STONP crew in an older interview TWSNOW did with him.

“We handmade "Stonp" pads for snowboards, but we're more of a film company. Our first movie ["S" Trippers & Powder Junkies], was a travel film with the crew. It’s not a big budget with helicopters or crazy locations, just a really good-quality movie that makes you want to go out and ride, party, and f—k shit up with your friends,” he continued.

Fast foreword five years and the STONP crew is still getting after it, and their new teaser is the most hard-hitting to date. Check it out above and stay tuned for more about the STONP film dropping this fall.
