The latest edition of the "I Ride NeffLand" series from Neff and IRideParkCity just dropped featuring Blaze Kotsenburg, Shane Wright, and more. This sick edit follows the gang around NeffLand at Park City, Utah for a day of fun and shredding. If you haven't been to NeffLand yet this edit will show you you're clearly missing out on a snowboarding paradise. Enjoy.
Neff Snowboarding Team rider Sage Kotsenburg has been extremely busy since winning the first ever gold medal in Snowboard Slopestyle at the Olympics. From Letterman, to Good Morning America, Sage has been on a whirlwind media tour since wrapping his Olympic stint. Recently he was awarded one of the most coveted prizes an athlete can hope to obtain; the Wheaties box! Seriously, think about it, only the greats get Wheaties boxes. Jordan had a few, Tiger had a few too, and now Sage can add his name to the long list of greats to grace the most meaningful cereal box in sports. Congrats Sage, definitely going to be eating a bowl of Wheaties this week; so I can be like Sage, not Mike.

"The Neff team loaded up the van and headed out for their first adventure in the great Northwest. With Hambone navigating us from the shotgun position we drove up the coast and didn't stop until we arrived at Silas' house. Since Hambone had lost his spot book of the city we linked up with local legends Mike Davis and Willis Kimbel and it was nothing but good vibes, great spots, and surprisingly amazing weather in Portland. The Neff team also hit up Windell's to see if it really was the funnest place on Earth, turns out all rumors are true! Epic times up in the Northwest with the Neff team." -Joe Hammeke for thrashermagazine.com

Utah is home to many hidden gems, two of which collided for an epic day of shredding.
Hidden gem #1 is NeffLand at Park City, Utah. From candy cane rails to cupcake bonks, this snow park is a fantasy land for any snowboarder with a sweet tooth.
The second hidden gem isn't really so hidden anymore. After capturing X Games hardware and the cover of Snowboarder Magazine, Dylan Thompson can't really be called hidden, but the term gem definitely applies. His technical tricks and signature style are on full display in this killer snowboarding edit.
Watch and enjoy.
Neff Snowboard Team Rider Sage Kotsenburg and NeffLand both call Park City, Utah home. The two recently crossed paths when Sage hit up NeffLand for this spoice edit.
He traded off between shredding the candy cane rails and catching some air off the cupcakes. Sage is one of the sickest riders on the slopes right now, even when he is just having fun. If you don't believe us, check it out for yourself.

The Start of Neff
Can you introduce yourself and your role at Neff?
My name is Shaun Neff and I started the brand Neff over 10 years ago. I am currently the CEO of the company and I have fun everyday.
How did you originally start the brand?
Growing up as a SoCal kid it was a dream of mine to have a cool lifestyle company one day like the ones I supported as a teenager. When I moved to Utah for college I just went for it; printing T-shirts with my last name on it and selling them out of my backpack. After creating a slight buzz in my college town Shreddin, I supported a number of illustrious snowboarders and learned that there was a niche in headwear. It started with some self-made headbands, then shortly after, we established ourselves as Neff Headwear.
How would you describe your sense of branding and visual language?
At a young age, I was always very intrigued with branding and product. At Neff, one of our brand slogans is “Forever Fun” and that’s how we try to communicate our brand message. A lot of brands get so caught up with what type of brand they want people to believe they are. I just want to make products and let the public decide on the end result. I’ve heard Neff being described as an electronic band (via our support from Steve Aoki and deadmau5), a hip-hop clothing label (via collaborations with 2 Chainz, Mac Miller and Snoop Dogg) and our collaboration with Jean-Michel Basquiat sees us mingling with the art world. Limiting oneself as a type of label is only limiting your future and your following, so we try to stay as open as possible in regards to ideas and motifs.
