STÅLE SANDBECH

WHO THE HELL ARE YOU AND WHAT MAKES YOU TICK?
A dude from Norway, who likes to think he’s got a bit of Viking blood running through his body. I’ve been snowboarding since I was eight years old and that changed my life and became my way. Also love most activities; being with my friends and family, making new friends and creating cool things.

WHICH FOOT DO YOU STRAP IN FIRST?
Right foot forward for this guy. At least most of the time.

WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE SNOWBOARD MEMORY? IT CAN BE ANYTHING; FIRST STREET RAIL, BEST TRIP WITH THE HOMIES, WATCHING A SESSION GO DOWN...
Damn, there are way too many!! 12-year-old kid dropping into 10-meter-high ice wall of a QP at the Arctic Challenge was a pretty memorable moment for me. But anytime I get to ride with good friends on a snowy day only trying to flip off every feature we see is a good time also!



WOULD YOU RATHER: HAND-DIG A QUARTER PIPE, BUILD A LOG JIB OR SHAPE A BANKED SLALOM COURSE?
Hand dig a QP from a natural windlip might be my all-time favorite feature to ride, so gotta go with that one.

IN YOUR OPINION, WHOSE STYLE HAS INFLUENCED YOU THE MOST AND HOW?
Of all people, gotta be my man Alek Østreng who was my neighbor and best friend growing up. So most of my snowboarding life we have been riding together. He is also the rudest boarder out there and (every favorite snowboarder’s favorite snowboarder).

IF YOU COULD GO BACK TO ANY SESSION, ANY FEATURE, ANY DAY ON SNOW AND JUST TELEPORT THERE TO SHRED, WHERE WOULD YOU GO?
RK1 Session at Hovden while filming for the Transworld Snowboarding movie, ‘Insight’. Such a fun feature and such a good crew.
