Getting to Know Your Flow Fusion PowerStrap

The Fusion PowerStrap foot-strap is 3D-shaped so it can fuse the ankle & toe zones over the mid-foot and is padded for a super comfortable form fit. In this quick video we show you how to properly set up your Fusion foot-straps with your Flow Bindings. Make sure you set your bindings up before you go riding, put your boots on, strap in and jump around on the carpet to make sure it feels good!

The FusionStrap is featured on Flow NX2, Fuse, ISIS, Five and Minx bindings.

Through Shin Biyajima’s Eyes

During the summer months, Flow Snowboarding Team Athlete Shin Biyajima does a lot to keep fit by cross training for the winter season. We had a moment to catch up with Biyajima in Japan to see how his winter went and how his summer is coming along. Pretty much catching a glimpse of the world through Biyajima’s eyes.

What would you consider you home ski resort to be?

The Hakuba area here in Nagano, Japan. But I like to chase the snow.

What kind of music do you ride to on your ipod or phone?

I listen to my friend’s band, rap and DJ mixes from Japan. I am so wide open with my music selection. Bassnectar to Tommy Guerrero. Acoustic, country dubstep, D’n’B, house, hip hop, Japanese, reggae and even techno. Not too much trance, though…

Where was your favorite place to travel to… not related to snowboarding?

I have never traveled without snowboarding… Oh wait… Saipan and Vietnam. I also like the south part of Japan.

What type of cross training do you do over the summer months in order to remain in shape for the upcoming winter?

I love to do a lot of activities like bouldering, mountain biking and skateboarding. I am also on a soccer team called ‘God Hands.’ It is gathering of snowboarder friends. I do a lot of core training and stretching to help my body and protect myself from getting a sore back.

Soccer team of snowboarders? Nice… Did you catch any of the FIFA World Cup soccer matches this summer?

Japan did not do too well, but I was really cheering for Costa Rica. I liked their vibe and the way they played soccer.

What was your favorite memory from last winter season?

We had epic powder in Japan. Traveling around United States was such a good time…and of course, so was hanging with the Flow Snowboarding team in Colorado.

Where are you looking forward to riding next year?

Japan, Lake Tahoe, Jackson Hole, Colorado and Washington, Canada, Alaska, Europe, South America… Anywhere it snows!

Describe your Apres Ski activities. What does Shin do to unwind after a day on the mountain?

Onsen… for sure. It is a natural hot spa. I go almost every time after riding when I’m in Japan. I like to chill and sometimes make Sushi. Checking footage from the day and well… CrackBook. Then I stretch, eat and then sleep. I sleep deep.

Do you have ideas or things you would want to try this winter?

I want to create a unique terrain park in the mountains. A little bit like Red Bull’s Ultra Natural, but more jibbing. Easier set ups for everyone and do some kind of riding party where we could all share the happiness of being in the snowy mountains… and I want to build a mountain lodge like Mike Basich has. An Area-241 in Japan.

Anything else you’d like to say to the Flow Snowboarding supporters?

We never know how long winter will be. Let’s go snowboarding before Mother Earth melts. Snow is AMAZING!

Shin Biyajima keeps up his fitness during the summer months. What are you doing this summer to cross train? Biking, hiking, skating, surfing, SUPing? Or better yet… are you still chasing the snow and snowboarding?

SPEED RIDING UP AT FLOWS TAILGATE ALASKA…

I tell you what… if I ever ski again, it will only be speed riding with my boy Pryce.

Notice at 3:15 he flies over Jason Gretzinger, as Jas is about to hit his massive near death gap…

UPDATE WITH MAX ZIPSER…

STEEP & NARROW:  BY MAX

Coming back from Alaska, conditions turned to be really good again here in Austria. As most of the ski resorts closed already, decision was easy: let`s go and hike some nice stuff!! Together with Alex Hoffmann I could realize some very interesting couloirs – steep and one was super narrow. Felt little bit like a canyoning excursion… but no rappelling! Little turns, some mandatory drops, good snow!!
