■Comment from Tomoya Ishii
I will be using FISCHER, GOLDWIN, and C3fit from this season. I and very happy and motivated to start new this season with FISCHER, GOLDWIN and C3fit to achieve my goal since when I was little to be “Number 1 in the world.” FISCHER ski has excellent control and easy to handle at many different situations which matches my image of smooth turns and hoping it will lead to reducing my time. Furthermore, Ski gear by GOLDWIN has many variations of functions and designs which is also comfortable and doesn’t feel the stress while on the snow.
Moreover, C3fit fits well and easy to move in which increases my physical training motivations. I am looking forward to staring this season with FISCHER, GOLDWIN and C3fit.
We will be having a booth at the Ski New Model Custom Fair & Ski Forum this year Again!
