Tracks - - Buzz - STEP INTO A JA­PANESE DREAM. by bEN bUG­DEN

Ja­pan has long been re­ferred to as the Land of the Ris­ing Sun. But we here at Tracks feel it’s time for a change. From this mo­ment Ja­pan shall hence­forth be known as, ‘The Land of the Best Gi­ant Horse­shoe Rip Bowl Ever’.

This set-up has to be the clos­est thing to a surf­ing fun­park we’ve ever seen. For the nat­u­ral footer, there’s the ori­en­tal Kirra seen grind­ing away in the fore­ground, and for the goofy foot­ers, be­cause we’d all know you’d rather surf a left when it’s on of­fer no mat­ter how much worse than the right, we have a lovely left op­tion seen streak­ing into the dis­tance on the other side.

This shot comes from a re­cent trip to The Land of the Best Gi­ant Horse­shoe Rip Bowl Ever, un­der­taken by Anthony Walsh, Zeke Lau, Cheyne Mag­nus­son and pho­tog­ra­pher Brent Biel­mann. And while we can only show you this sneak peek of the ac­tion now, be sure to grab Au­gust Tracks to see this wave in all its glory. You won’t be dis­ap­pointed.

Two per­fect waves fun­nel off un­rid­den on the Ja­panese
