Sage Kotsenburg Wants To Sell You A Bro Mortgage

Will we ever get tired of winter sport athletes and their stoner ways? No, but we will generally forget them until the next Olympics. So why not enjoy gold medal snowboarder Sage Kotsenburg in this skit from last night's Conan? » 2/25/14 4:46pm 2/25/14 4:46pm

Sage Kotsenburg Finally Gets His Olympic Medal Made Of Bacon

Winning the first gold medal of the Olympics was both a blessing and a curse for Sage Kotsenburg, America's 20-year-old slopestyle snowboard brogod. It was intense to be honored so early ("The flag is going up. You've got the medal on. And you're just tripping out."). But it was also sort of a bummer to come home and… » 2/19/14 8:32am 2/19/14 8:32am

Snowboard Cross Semifinal Features Nutshot, Photo Finish

Trevor Jacob did not have a very good semifinal in today's snowboard cross competition. First, he busted his ankle. Then he suffered a dickpunch from American teammate Alex Deibold. And finally, he missed out on qualifying for the final by hundredths of a second. » 2/18/14 8:58am 2/18/14 8:58am

Sochi Organizers Attempt To Clear Fog With Giant Fans

Heavy fog in the mountains above Sochi caused postponements of men's biathlon and snowboard cross races today. Visibilities were near zero at times, making the shooting portion of biathlon impossible, and snowboarding downright dangerous. But let no one say organizers didn't try everything in their power to get the… » 2/17/14 4:19pm 2/17/14 4:19pm

Dude Snowboards NYC Streets

This is filmmaker Casey Neistat, getting towed through the snow and slush of Manhattan. These things walk a fine line between obnoxious and fun, but I think Neistat came down on the right side here. » 2/14/14 2:29pm 2/14/14 2:29pm

Sage Kotsenburg Isn't the Lochte We Want. He's the Lochte We Deserve.

The 70's had Mark Spitz, the 80's had Bruce Jenner and Carl Lewis, the 90's had Alberto Tomba, the 2000's had the Australian swim team and Apolo Ohno, and in 2012, the Olympic gods blessed us with Ryan Lochte. But pickings for the Sochi Games' Unofficial Sexy Male Olympian are decidedly more meh. In a post-Lochte era,… » 2/12/14 2:18pm 2/12/14 2:18pm

BBC Snowboard Bros Strike Again, Drop Some Knowledge On Lingo

It's possible that you are watching snowboarding for the first time—or are, at best, a casual viewer of the sport—and have absolutely no idea what anyone is talking about. If you fall into this category of viewer, we hope you're watching the BBC feed because not only are Tim Warwood and Ed Leigh entertaining, they're… » 2/12/14 11:02am 2/12/14 11:02am

The Evolution Of The Halfpipe: Faster, Higher, Safer?

The men's halfpipe final was sort of a disaster today, as a terribly maintained Sochi course led to falls (or at least slips) for most of the major competitors. But, hey, no one got hurt! » 2/11/14 5:29pm 2/11/14 5:29pm

BBC Snowboarding Commentators Are A Blast

Ed Leigh and Tim Warwood handle the BBC's snowboarding commentary from Sochi and listening to them call the runs might be more fun than watching the runs themselves. Snowboarding and other X-Games-related sports all seem to have their own weirdo jargon, shouted out by anthropomorphic cans of Mountain Dew, but these… » 2/11/14 4:28pm 2/11/14 4:28pm

Men's Halfpipe Final Ends In Disaster Of Gnarly Wrecks

Shaun White was unable to defend his back-to-back gold medals in men's halfpipe today, and in fact the American extreme sport superstar finished out of the medals entirely despite having the top score coming out of the prelims. He wasn't the only snowboarder to falter, though; the piece-of-shit Sochi halfpipe led to a… » 2/11/14 1:46pm 2/11/14 1:46pm

Olympic Halfpipe Is "Garbage," Snowboarders Report

Last week, ladies' downhill skiing was halted after three runs because one jump was dangerously large and hadn't been properly tested. But at least courseworkers were able to fix it. Meanwhile, the snowboard halfpipe is in terrible shape, and according to a Yahoo report, one rider says it's "unsalvageable." » 2/10/14 9:25am 2/10/14 9:25am

BBC Slopestyle Announcers Prove The U.S. Holds No Monopoly On Homerism

Coming into Sochi, the Great Britain national Olympic team had never won a medal on the snow at the Winter Games, going 0-56 in the events throughout history. That changed today when Bristol snowboarder Jenny Jones earned bronze in slopestyle. Her performance—good enough to put her, at the moment, into first… » 2/09/14 3:20pm 2/09/14 3:20pm

Team U.S.A. Has Its First Gold Medal And The Pictures Are Awesome

Sage Kotsenburg won America its first gold today in Snowboard Men's Slopestyle and, as you might imagine, a human flying through the air in front of snowcapped mountains is wonderful eye candy. » 2/08/14 10:30am 2/08/14 10:30am

Hey! The Olympics Have Started

Though the opening ceremony doesn't begin for another day, today has already seen the start of qualification in the men's and women's slopestyle snowboarding, and in a little bit, women's moguls and the first parts of the new team figure skating competition. » 2/06/14 8:36am 2/06/14 8:36am

Bob Costas On New Olympic Snowboarding Events: "Jackass Stuff"

Kelly Clark is the two-time defending X Games Gold Medalist in Women's Superpipe. She won gold in Salt Lake in '02 and bronze in Vancouver in 2010. At the 2011 X Games she became the first woman to land a 1080 in competition.

Shaun White Just Got The First Ever Perfect Score In SuperPipe—On His…

The classical ideal of perfection in athletics was defined by physical prowess displayed artistically. Modern tastes have added "swagger," "attitude," or perhaps just pride to that equation. » 1/29/12 11:54pm 1/29/12 11:54pm

At Least We Have Fair Warning That There Are Nude Photos Of Shaun White…

There are reportedly nude photos of snowboarder-skateboarder-shredder-bro Shaun White out in the universe, America. Set your RSS filters accordingly: TMZ reports that "the ginger carpet matches the ginger drapes." Happy Monday! [TMZ, NY Post] » 12/05/11 2:40pm 12/05/11 2:40pm
