Tell us Marc…

Three words to describe what snowboarding is for you?

Lot of fun

Five craziest things you did on your board?

I often ride and eat in the meantime.
I finished my run on freeride contest with a dislocated shoulder.
I tried to pass between two dudes in a boarderX turn, bad idea.
I went to a closed resort alone in order to shape a kicker and try a switch backside rodeo, landed one, the only one in my life.
Went down a couloir in Chile and saw a photographer on the side, I stopped to ask for a shot, made the slash we agreed and realised I was very late for a rendez-vous, so I didn’t stop and never saw that guy again.

Thing you would never do to your board?

Stop repairing before it’s fully dead, or put it in a trash when I can rather give it to someone else.

Three most used words while riding?

Là ça passe? -> Possible down there?

Your biggest crash?

When I tried that switch bs rodeo after few month later again, landed on my neck, on the glacier, no powder, not the biggest one but the most stupid!

If you could choose in whatever snowboard movie you have your part, what would it be?

Absinthe films.

Riders you admire?

Backcountry riders like for example Mat Shaer! Also I admire people riding around me, just doing what they like without any other reasons.

Sometimes you call your snowboard?

I don’t but sometimes when I take it for the first time since long time, I say “Viens là toi!” which mean “hey you, come on” in a sweet way.
