Sage Kotsenburg becomes to first Nike rider to have his Emergence part released online, a short video where he describes how he got in to snowboarding and how the Olympics have shaped his career now the Sochi hype is starting to die down.

Sage really is one of the nicest guys in snowboarding, just so stoked to share his passion for the sport with anyone

After finally getting to meet him in Hood this summer, we can honestly say that Sage really is one of the nicest guys in snowboarding, just so stoked to share his passion for the sport with anyone whether they be grandparents or grand kids. So a good choice to kick off this series on where Nike's roster of riders came from.

The more we hear snowboarders rambling over videos the less we want to, but if all riders sounded as stoked, interesting and happy as bacon medals here does, we'd be a lot happier with this ongoing snowboard movie trend. Good one Sage!
