Lake Forest, CA — etnies and ThirtyTwo are psyched to announce the newest am rider, Stà¥le Sandbech, to join their global snow teams. Born in Rykkin, Norway, this 14-year-old has been etching his name in the industry for the last six years.    

Last season, he was seen blowing up Hemsedal and caught in Snowboarder, Playboard and Method magazines. You may have peeped his part in the Up in the Sky video or saw him on the podium after winning the Norwegian National Championships last year. Other than snowboarding, you can find this kid skating with friends and spending quality time with the ladies. Stà¥le has definitely been turning some heads on the mountain and will continue for years to come.
