Ruka Hirano

Typically seen with a laid back appearance, but when it comes to snowboarding he's incredibly stoic. Learning to snowboard at the age of 7, he already went on to debut in the YONEX JUNIOR GLOW UP PROJECT at just the age of 10. Since then, he has steadily improved his skills and competed in his first X Games in the 2020-2021 season, where he placed 3rd.
