Sometimes the greatest adventures are a blast into the unknown and when Greg Illingworth and Kevin Kalkoff set out to find the long lost Death Bowl on a four day mission (within a 7 day trip) from mainland Japan all the way to the island of Hokkaido, no one knew what the outcome would be. What ensued was a terrifying ferry crossing, driving around the clock and the complete lack of certainty of the outcome. Needless to say things didn't go quite according to plan at the beginning of the trip but would they be able to scrape it back and get to ride the mysterious transitions they put so much effort into finding? Special thanks to Monster Energy for helping to make this happen, Vans with their support for the video, Eriko and Kaku at Wheelies bike shop, and Ryan Corrigan and Leigh Ramsdell.
