Greenroom Festival, Japan. 3rd Time's A Charm!

Another Greenroom done and dusted. Such an amazing couple of days meeting new people, a lot of bowing & business card exchanging. Despite the heart breaking troubles this country has had over the past 3 months, there was plenty of support for the festival and for the surf community, giving everyone a reason and opportunity to have a good time. The turnout was in excess of 12,000 people, many of the old faces weren't present, but many new ones took their place bringing with them an unfamiliar twist on surf culture.

We're stoked we came to Japan during this heartfelt time. It's amazing to see humanity come together and stay strong. We love you Japan and your people x
