Indy Park Jam Rookie Fest 2015 @ Nekoma, Japan

Last week Nekoma resort was a blast to young riders from all over the country! Almost 50 riders showed up what they have from their small pockets!


The snowpark  started with 2 13m kickers, followed by the rails section: Up flat Down Kink box to Down rail to finish. Also very infant kids enjoyed the 4m and 5m kickers, 4m Flat box and 3m Down rail. Surprisingly most of the riders chose the Pro line!! 2 runs best count and top 7 Girls and 12 Boys straight to the Final. Riders like Rookie Girl Junna Asaya (16) from Chigazaki, Kanagawa.
