We’ve been sending out a lot of gear recently over the holiday season - as we shuttle it to the post office we have been known to descend into offbeat dreams of where in the world it will end up

Daniele sent us this shot of him in his Storm Track in Tokyo Fish market, Tsukiji - next to this huge tuna on New Years Eve in the small hours of the morning. Tsukiji is one of the largest markets in Japan, where hundreds of these huge and increasingly scarce Tuna’s change hands in rounds of fierce bidding.

“Definitely not an extreme or adventurous situation, still with my Finisterre gear kept warm and dry in a rather soggy, smelly and damp environment for hours. The friend that was accompanying me during this ‘trip’ took a pic of me near a huge tuna and half jokingly sent it to the ‘Corriere della Sera’ (the major italian newspaper) online edition and lo and behold it got published”.

Finisterre, near and far…
