This is Nama Gundam. He likes to snowboard, dressed in Gundam gear. Bless him.

The Osaka resident made his Mobile Suit himself. This isn’t only cosplay, but functional snowboarding wear.

It seems cushioned, and I’m assuming it’s warm. Surely, carrying Gundam weaponry while snowboarding makes snowboarding more difficult, no?

He has friends! They make up a Gundam snowboarding performance team, and that’s awesome.
