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 back-to-back Transworld Good Wood Award-winning series quick and maneuverable. It unleashes maximum power through the Panda Core with Bamboo Power Rods and is loaded with high-end construction components like a Core Ash Woodgrain topsheet, a new 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.
RIDER ABILITY- Intermediate / Advanced
RIDING STYLE- All Mountain / Freeride
Flex: 6.5 (1=soft, 10=stiff) Stiff enough to plow through the powder and hold a strong edge, yet still forgiving when you need it.
Profile: Alpine V3
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 PRO 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.
Core:FSCTM Certified Panda Core' Super lightweight Certified Core aligned with bamboo power rods.
Additives: 4 X 25 MM AMPLITEX AMPLIFIERS + 8 X BAMBOO POWER RODS
Base: Hyperdrive NC12 Sintered Base
Exclusively formulated, sintered, ultra-high molecular weight, ultra high density polyethylene, custom engineered with special additives. Pretty much, this base goes FAST.
