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.
Alpine V3 Profile – The Alpine V3 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 uses traditional tip and tail arcs.
Radical Taper – A sidecut engineered for deep powder but still versatile around the mountain. This narrower tail section naturally sinks in the powder while the wider nose section floats above the snow line. The result is less work and more fun as the board surfs on one smooth continuous arc.
FSC® Certified Panda Core™ – Super lightweight Certified Core aligned with bamboo power rods.
Amplitex™ V-Tech Amplifier – Grid woven tech tape featuring the response of carbon with the dampness of flax.
Holysheet™ Fiberglass + Magic Bean™ Resin – Triax/Biax Holysheet™ has higher glass to weight ratio than normalized fiberglass. Impregnated with high performance plant based Magic Bean™ resin for the most powerful and dynamic ride.
Full ABS1000 Sidewalls
Hyperdrive™ Base – Exclusively formulated, sintered, ultra-high molecular weight, ultra-high density polyethylene, custom engineered with special additives. Rated for the most depraved speed junkies only.
360 Degree HRC48 Steel Edges
Skinless Core Ash Woodgrain Topsheet - This board has a specially treated pure wood veneer topsheet with a unique tactile feel that is 220gm light than a standard topsheet.
Multitech™ Level 4 DeepSpace™ Silkscreen
Made at the 100% Hydro Powered Mothership Facility – The NH3 natural gas heating system has an ODP (Ozone Depletion Potential) and GWP (Global Warming Potential) of 0, with a COP (coefficient of performance) of 5. This means that for every 1 unit of energy consumed by the system, 5 units of energy for heating and cooling is achieved. It's like making the effort to spin a 360, but landing a silky smooth 1800 instead. The Mothership is also designed to maximize the use of natural light during the day by having ample skylights and strategically placed interior cutaways throughout the entire facility -- while energy efficient LED lighting acts as supplementary illumination where necessary.
