Fast and powerful, this is the switchblade of powder boards, and it will slash the backcountry like no other. While many great powder boards are large and surfy, the Kazu Kokubo Pro comes in a compact chassis with a powder nose and a slightly tapered tail, making this award-winning series quick and maneuverable. This versatility is perfect for those side-country powder mornings when things get tracked, and you end up back inside the resort boundaries for the remainder of the day. It unleashes maximum power through the FSC® Certified Panda Core™ with Bamboo Power Rods™ and is loaded with high-end construction components like a new Skinless™ Core Ash woodgrain topsheet, HyperDrive™ high-speed sintered base, and Amplitex™ V-Tech Amplifiers. While it’s a lofty goal, this board is your first step towards trying to emulate Kazu’s legendary riding style.
The ALPINE V2 Profile features lower-body camber with a reverse cambered nose. This allows for maximum turning power while increasing float and landing stability. The camber runs deep into the tail on the Kazu providing enhanced performance for this freestyle powder series. The Kazu Kokubo Pro and Supernova uses traditional tip and tail arcs.
Super lightweight Certified Core aligned with bamboo power rods.
Specially treated pure wood veneer topsheet with a unique tactile feel that is 220gm lighter than the standard process.
Grid woven tech tape featuring the response of carbon with the dampness of flax.
Triax/Biax HOLYSHEET™ has higher glass to weight ratio than normal fiberglass, for a more powerful and dynamic ride, when impregnated with high performance plant-based MAGIC BEAN™ RESIN.
Exclusively formulated, sintered, ultra-high molecular weight, ultra-high density polyethylene, custom engineered with special additives. Rated for the most depraved speed junkies ONLY.

For years, Kazuhiro Kokubo has been on the sharpest edge of all-mountain freestyle snowboarding. Emboldened by nature, he brings a soulful, yet commanding approach to the mountains that blends power, finesse, and a passion that is tangible in the way he descends vertical terrain.
By now, you should know that Kazu’s snowboard is more than a tool. The Kazu Pro represents both the physical machine required for a downhill experience and the cognitive inspiration vital to the adventure at hand. In fact, his graphics provide an artful lens with which we may look into the Japanese spirit and try to better understand the personal ethos he carries with him into the vast white escape.
The legend of the Ninja has been met with wonder and admiration from the most distant reaches of the world. For Kazu, a Ninja placed on the base graphic represents the rider, in a way that he envisions moving down the mountain with precision, speed, and calculated action.
A calligraphy pen represents a snowboard, and charcoal strokes embody a line—his lines. Charcoal has been used in traditional scripture to ink stories revered for generations. As the physical element of charcoal is permanent, he too hopes that his movement in the mountains may be thoughtful enough to mark the memories of many and inspire generations of shredders to come.
