Akifumi Hiraoka : Special Backcounty Part

Akifumi, who played an active role in the Air & Style, the Toyota Big Air and other big competitions, is one of the pioneers of showing the Canadian Backcountry to the Japanese people.

Aki always pushes himself, doesn’t care about age, and having fun before everything else is his style which makes people who surround him laugh and be positive.
The music behind Aki’s part was made by Yosuke Onuma who is one of the great Jazz guitarists of the world, also Aki’s friend.
Yosuke made the song after watching Aki’s riding and images.
