Over the past few weeks the champions of legit halfpipe style nearly lost one of the greats to the allure of endless pow. Kazuhiro Kokubo has been shralping on the edge of the grid with Standard Films in the interior BC. Selfishly SNOWBOARDER hopes he got the white gold out of his system for a little while so he can continue to provide us with momentary breaks from the robotic monotony of the current halfpipe ranks. Shit. Look at this first photo. Next time you see Kazu riding a halfpipe take a second and thank him because we're not sure we could have left this backcountry behind.
