A couple of weeks ago, GenkiJACS made our inaugural trip to the conveniently located indoor snowboarding arena Big Air, part of the Bayside Place complex in Hakata Bay. A few students and a few teachers, all beginners, took part in a 90-minute class designed to, well, designed to stop us from falling over and hurting ourselves, mostly. We learned slipping forwards, and zig-zagging. Unfortunately we didn’t have time (or ability, to be honest) to learn going backwards, but at least that means there’s something waiting for us next time we go. They have a coupon on their website (PDF link) that offers the full pack (equipment rental, entry to the arena, and a teacher for 90 minutes) for just 2,835 yen, instead of the normal 4,200 yen. Not too bad, eh? There’s more photos in our gallery.
