Norwegian Metal: Snowboard Star Stale Sandbech Claims Overall TTR World Snowboard Tour Title, Video Edits Drop
The Scandinavians already knew Stale Sandbech as the ‘heir apparent’ to Norwegian Snowboard Royalty. But few actually thought he’d claim the coveted TTR World Snowboard Tour Title so soon – and at such a young age.

But despite his super friendly, typically Norwegian demeanor, Stale’s riding did the fierce talking for itself.
