Aided by strong leg muscles built from fierce cycling and soccer experience, Atsushi Ishikawa is a fierce veteran who’s boarded it all, from contests and shoots to parks, natural hits, and street rails.
He first strapped into a board at 18 and quickly made a name for himself thanks to a gutsy personality cultivated from years on the high school soccer club, as well as his hard work ethic. In 2000, he became a member of “sclover3.”
After that, people took notice of his myriad achievements and he began to make appearances in snowboarding magazines and videos.
Not only has Atsushi Ishikawa competed in some of the biggest competitions in Japan—including the Nissan X-Trail Jam, Toyota Big Air, and Slopestyle—he’s even taken to the stage during the TTR World Snowboarding Championships, coming home with success both in and outside of Japan.
These days, Ishikawa is focused on breathing life into the snowboarding scene while actively pursuing snowboard development and sales, making himself a trusted name among end-users, shop staff, and manufacturers alike.
He is unquestionably one of the top snowboarders on the scene.
