Competitive snowboarding is at an all-time gymnastic high. Amid these mandatory ballerina moves, it’s refreshing to see somebody try even harder to put style & personality into a risky environment.
This past weekend at the Breckenridge Dew Tour Big Air event, Sage Kotsenburg landed a perfect “backside 1080 double cork” while doing the extra difficult “Japan” grab. The judges made the easy decision and rewarded him with the silver medal! …actually a wooden trophy.
Sage will be competing in the upcoming Winter X-Games in Aspen, where he’s no stranger to their podium as well.
