In Japanese culture, an enso is a circle that is hand-drawn in one simple, uninhibited, brushstroke to express a moment when the mind is free to let the body create. This type of freedom is essential to Kazu Kokubo's snowboarding style. He has said that before he drops into a feature, that his mind becomes clear. He prays to his family, and as he flies through the air, he is filled with euphoria. There are four symbols vertically aligned on the topsheet of his new board. The eagle embodies individuality. The Metaphor epitomizes evolution. The Mothership represents the future. And, the enso mark symbolizes absolute enlightenment, strength, elegance, the universe, and mu — the void. The 2016 Kazu Kokubo Pro graphic explores various dimensions of the Japanese wabi-sabi perspective. Kanso: simple. Koko: weathered. Shinzen: natural. Datsuzuko: free.
