Aspen for Burton film shoot. First time after X Games I bring my army. Eijyu and Ayumu Hirano.

Given Kazuhiro’s Kokubo’s aptitude for amplitude we feel it more fitting to call it high-ku rather than haiku. Nonetheless SNOWBOARDER is still inspired to pay tribute to his vast talents by conjuring a traditional Japanese 17 “on” poem in his honor:

THE LIP OF HALF PIPE
LAY SO SO SO FAR BELOW
KAZU YOU CRAZY

In your face Matsuo Basho!
