Each Christmas, some of Midwest snowboarding’s OGs gather at Trollhaugen to throw methods, share laughs, and show the next generation of shred how the stoke was stoked long before terrain parks transformed the game. In this episode of ‘Human on Board’ we catch up with the old dudes who took Troll for the day, and follow it with high-speed steel work from some of Troll’s regulars in the Valhalla park.

No one expected Sage Kotsenburg to win Gold at Sochi, least of all Sage himself. Yet he pulled it off while defying conventional tricks and sticking to his unique style of snowboarding.
What we’ve got here is a classic underdog tale of grit, uncompromising integrity, and the struggle to keep our sport true to its roots. The victory couldn’t have happened to a better ambassador for our sport— who has shown the world another side of competitive snowboarding and the importance of doing what you believe is right.
This is the story of Sage’s unlikely season, leading up to Sochi, and what went down after.

House team rider Matt Chase has a pretty insane season last year. After battling through heavy slams and injuries, Matt ended up with some top-notch street hammers and some crazy footage from his summer at Windells. Unfortunately, Matt will not be able to ride this season due to concussions, so we wanted to drop his ender part from Wild Card to keep up the hype.

A road movie through Norway & the mind of Terje Haakonsen
From early contest shakeups to progressing the sport in countless magazines and videos, Terje’s influence on snowboarding’s trajectory is truly monumental. Terje’s Olympic boycott and creation of the Arctic Challenge made him a pioneering proponent of rider-run contests. As a competitor he has stacked accolades including all-time high quarterpipe airs and seven Mt Baker Legendary Banked Slalom wins.
Desillusion Magazine’s editor in chief Sebastien Zanella followed Terje Haakonsen on a road trip around Norway to gain a true insight into his life away from the spotlight.

It has come to my attention that we all felt a similar contempt under the seasonal vacation migration of cityslickers unto our respective holylands. Our home at Boreal was not spared. In fact, it was a grade A holiday sh*t show. Which is actually pretty tight, and that’s why Dan took the ol’ cam out and we joined the crowds on hill to make our sixth installment of Strangers Welcome.
Notice all the Rome boards? Yeah we did too. CHeck out what we have in stock HERE.
