Anyone heard of this guy?





Looks like he competes in Japan - guessing Reilly might know him...

been following him for a few years, this guy is a beast but I don't think he's a "perfect" representation of PMTS in the same way that Reilly is. Insanely skilled though.

He can ski.

And the boys down under seem to think the world of him.

IMO Takao is one of the best technical free skiers in the world. He's one of the skiers in "4ce cut the wind":

For short turns and bumps he is among the best models you'll find anywhere.
Discipline is the refining fire by which talent becomes ability.

For longer turns it is important to acknowledge that they are demonstrating the standard for the tech comps in Japan. Less CB and CA then we like to see in PMTS. That doesn't mean they can't crank up CB/CA if that is their goal. I've skied with some of these guys. They rip around off piste at speeds that are phenomenal and far beyond anything I'd ever attempt.
