This movie, our debut full-length release, has a special importance for us. This movie including our lost brother Kyota Miyake’s last full part and it will include his previously released footage from his younger days.
We want to give everybody a glimpse into his life. He always took the direct line with his laid back style, in life and on his board. He had a unique energy and always came through in the clutch with the best shots.
We were as tight as brothers, and his passing has made us change the way we think about snowboarding. At first, we didn’t want to snowboard anymore. Then we realized that we had to keep doing what needed to be done, and so we are releasing this full-length movie.
Making this in Kyota Miyake’s memory is difficult emotionally but we need to do this for ourselves too. This is not only Kyota Miyake’s footage but also the places we wanted to go with him, the tricks we wanted to land, the things we wanted to accomplish together.
We all ride together. Now and forever.
