The second teaser for the Helgason's upcoming snowboard film, NoToBo, has just dropped. Apparently it's all about fame, glory, money, and gold—because guys like the Helgasons and Sage Kotsenburg are all about that life. A nice comedic laugh in preparation for what should be some solid snowboarding from this one.
When I was in college, snowboarding 2-3 days a week was just not enough. I needed more. So I took the winter semester off and moved to Park City, Utah. It was there that I was finally able to snowboard every single day. It was also where I experienced the best job I will ever have: delivering pizza for Davanza's.
I spent every day on-hill, and every night behind the wheel. Navigating my way through the treacherous streets in blizzard conditions, I delivered to world-class hotels and multi-million dollar ski homes—as well as muchie-crazed locals who would provide tips in green currency. Between deliveries I would hang out in the bastion of the shreddy pizza lifestyle that Davanza's embodies.
Olympic gold medalist Sage Kotsenburg knows the shreddy pizza lifestyle better than most, as exhibited in this day in the life video from Utah's latest Find Your Greatest campaign. Ride by day, pizza by night. When you're 21-years-old, nothing else should matter.
Snowboarding is more fun without a shirt.

20-year-old Park City native Sage Kotsenburg qualified for the U.S. Olympic slopestyle snowboard team at the Grand Prix qualifier at Mammoth Mountain recently. Kotsenberg and slopestyle will both be making their Olympic debuts this year so Dose host Michaela Eichenbaum caught up with him in Mammoth to get his thoughts on the Sochi Games. Kotsenburg has his pre-Olympic routine locked in and has a good sense of who the riders to watch will be in Russia. The only thing he's still needs to figure out is what he will say to slopestyle hater Bob Costas if he runs into him.
Olympic slopestyle gold medalist Sage Kostenburg became the new face of snowboarding overnight. Kotsenburg won the first gold medal for the United States at the Sochi Winter Olympics. Even though he was inundated with interview requests that come with winning a gold medal, Kotsenburg made time to for another appearance on Dose. (We can't blame him, seeing as how appearing on Dose was a ticket to a gold medal in snowboard slopestyle this year). Kotsenburg admitted that the slopestyle course was gnarly, but it was nothing crazier than a New York City taxi cab. He also touched upon the fact that now the world knows of more snowboarders than just Shaun White, and how he'd like to use his recently found fame to help inner city kids get into snowboarding.

Nike Snowboarding is still giving us great gifts from their recent snowboard video Never Not—which is nice with the holidays approaching. The latest is the shared part from Never Not with Nike snowboarders Justin Bennee, Johnnie Paxson, Sage Kotsenburg, and Ethan Morgan. Usually when a bunch of riders have to share a part it means the riding is sub-par. That is definitely not the case here. Each of the riders delivers some bangers in the streets and in the backcountry. And Black Rob's "Like Whoa" is the perfect song for this video.

Justin Leveille of YoBeat's "Hateline" show has uncovered a conspiracy theory: that Nike Snowboarding's new 7-part series "Emergence" is essentially Harry Potter. They're both 7-part series, and that's about as far as the similarities go. But it's still funny.
The first part of "Emergence" dropped the other day, and it's with Olympic gold medalist Sage Kotsenburg. Go check it out here.
