Time to reveal a little backstory about these latest Dispatch posts. When we first heard that Hironaka wanted to do updates for Snowboardermag.com from Japan we assumed it was the famed mathematician Heisuke Hironaka. Then when we saw all of the lowbrow snaps we realized that things weren’t adding up. Booyah!!!! Ziiing.
