Web Exclusive: Handling Popularity
Sage Kotsenburg talks with Shauna Lake about all attention he has received since winning Olympic gold. Sage says he enjoys all of the appearances and attention. He goes on to say that immediately following the Olympics, there was a point where he needed a break from it all. He took three weeks and went to Europe to snowboard in the backcountry. Now Sage says he loves meeting all the people that watched him win gold for the United States. When talking to kids, Sage says the main message he tries to send them is to never quit on something you love doing. He says, "Don't let anyone tell you that you can't do something because you can do it."
