"I love snowboarding, I love Japan, and I like Shaun White so I thought a video about all these things would be awesome. Unfortunately, I was wrong. First of all, the whole thing runs less than an hour and only in the middle third are they actually in Japan. It starts off talking about how Shaun is out of his element in the backcountry and it ends with his win at the 2008 US Open in Stratton. If those are of interest to you fine, but I wanted to see some serious footage of his time in Japan and I don't think it lasts more than thirty minutes. Secondly, although you get to hear plenty of Shaun talking and people talking about Shaun, you don't really see more than a handful of shots of Shaun actually snowboarding. A lot of the footage is of his friends who are along for the trip. Also, since we are in Japan, why doesn't the video spend much time exploring the culture, the food, and the uniqueness of the country that would make a trip there fun and exciting? If you want to see a great ski/snowboarding video about Japan, go to evogear.com and stream Nimbus Independent's "En Route - Japan". Best of all, it's FREE!!!"

"This movie rules! I was so stoked that Shaun is out of his element in Japan. Such good pow riding and awesome footage from when he was a little kid. I can't believe how far he has come! If you like Shaun, this will open your eyes and you will love him!
