Kohei Kudo may be a Winter X rookie, but he's a Winter Olympian (14th in 2010), two-time Japan National champion (2005 & 2008) and 2006 Junior World Champion. He goes huge and lands 1080s and back-to-back 900s in his run. The 21-year-old only likes to do one thing outside of snowboarding, and that's party hard.
