Takaharu Nakai joins Salomon international team
Takaharu Nakai grew up riding the legendary powder of Hokkaido, Japan and first gained international notice at the 2002 Olympic Games in Salt Lake City. He currently rides the varied terrain of Whistler Blackcomb where he combines technical precision with big lofty airs all over the mountain.
“I decided to join the team after really enthusiastic talks with Rio Tahara, Bonfire and Salomon’s Sports Marketing Manager in Japan. He helped me see a bright future with both the brands. I look forward to riding and hanging out with the international team and the team in Japan. It’s an awesome crew,” said Takaharu.
His departure from Burton and Analog was based on his decision to ride for Salomon Snowboards and Bonfire Outerwear.
