Kazu goes Kamikaze!!

15 02 2010

Snowboarders are some of the coolest people I know.  They are consistently pushing the limits of their sport, and pride themselves on steeze being a seriously redeeming quality.  Recently, one snowboarder who happens to excel in the steeze department, was nearly banned from a major international competition.

Kazuhiro Kokubo of Japan was on his way to the Olympics in the standard team apparel.  Slacks, dress shirt, and patriotically color coordinated tie.  Problem was… his pants were falling off, the knot on his tie was barely holding on, and his shirt was the opposite of tucked in.  Add to this the fact that he was sporting one of the gnarest pairs of sunnies on the market, the Oakley Dispatch.  Needless to say, our boy stood out.  Lucky for Kazu he is a shred ninja!  So the people in charge of the Japanese Olympic team decided that him not shredding would be like eating sushi with a fork, it would work… but it just ain’t right.  He didn’t get to take part in the opening ceremony because of this, so make sure you see him in action when he hits the pipe with the rest of the boys in a few days.  I wanted to take this opportunity to give props where props are due.  Thanks for being such a pimp Kazu! Keep Steppin’!
