Miniview for a maxi rider by the name of Kazuhiro Kokubo. After Dan Brisse a few weeks back, Kazu is our second rider in this new web feature, just because he's awesome, and also because his recent moves to CAPiTA snowboards, Union bindings and Adidas outerwear have created a real buzz around the Nippon master. A 'new year's style' Miniview to see what the Kazu's up to.
So where are you at and what are you up to?
KK: I am in Colorado getting ready for X Games
Where was your first shred of 2013?

What would you dream to achieve in 2013?
