I’m not sure if you feel the same, but I cannot believe that it’s already 2014 and the year of the horse!
To recap my 2013, it had its fair share of ups and downs. It started off pretty average with a few small competitions at the start, followed by me breaking my hand mid-year, and a couple more competitions at the end.
To delve deeper into the past few months, November was average; I didn’t have any competitions on but I did sign some hats for Billabong and sent them to a couple of my fans for Christmas which was pretty sick!
In December, I headed back to Japan with my family. During the short stay, we visited some temples and went snowboarding! We would drive up about 4.5 hours at 4 in the morning and hit the slopes by 8.30 and continue all the way till dusk (around 4.30pm during winter).
Apart from that, we indulged in food – obviously – such as Japanese style BBQ, Sushi, Ramen, etc.
Other than all the food and activities, it was really nice to see my grandparents, uncles and cousins. I only get to see them twice a year so it’s always nice to spend quality time with them.

To welcome 2014, I spent New Year’s Eve in Japan eating some traditional food with my family. I made some New Year resolutions too; be healthier, spend less money, get better grades in school and land some new tricks in wakeboarding!
The year has already been great so far. I was invited to watch the Red Bull Flying Bach. It was simply amazing! It’s basically a break dance show, but instead of playing regular hip-hop or dubstep, they used classical music (Bach) and synchronized their dance to that.
That’s all the updates I have for now guys. Stay tuned for more coming up this year!
