Marcus Kleveland - Sun ValleyCiao Marcus! Siamo orgogliosi di parlare con te! Il tuo riding è davvero impressionante e le persone che ti vedono non possono credere che tu abbia solamente 13 anni.. considerando che ad 11 chiudevi già tranquillamente trick come back10 o double.. è davvero incredibile! Prima di tutto quindi, puoi presentarti agli snowboarders italiani con poche parole? Nome e Cognome: Marcus Kleveland Data di nascita: 25.04.1999 Città: DOMBÅS Home Resort: Dombås Skiheiser Stance: Goofy Sponsor: Volcom, Nitro, Red Bull, Electric, GoPro, Skullcandy, Session Trick Preferito: Cab Double 9 Ok.. ora possiamo andare avanti ;) Qual è il tuo primo ricordo legato allo snowboard? In che anno hai iniziato e perchè hai scelto proprio questo sport? Era l'anno 2003/04 e solitamente giocavo con la PS1(Shaun Palmer Snowboarding). Era davvero divertente :) Dopo un pò di tempo incontrai il vero snowboard, e mio padre mi comprò una 75cm! Ma non è andata come quando giocavo ;) ..e ricordo di essermi arrabbiato un sacco perchè non riuscivo a fare i trick come nel gioco ;) Ma alla fine poi è iniziata ad andar meglio!
Un Back10 da manuale, quando aveva solamente 11 anni!English Version Hi Marcus! We’re proud to speak with you. Your riding is impressive and people who see you, can’t believe that you’re just 13 years old… considering that when you was just 11 you were able to stomp tricks as double or back10.. pretty awesome we guess! First at all, can you introduce yourself to the italian snowboarders in few words? Name and Surname: Marcus Kleveland Date of birth: 25.04.1999 Hometown: DOMBÅS Home resort: Dombås Skiheiser Stance: Goofy Sponsor: Volcom, Nitro, Red Bull, Electric, GoPro, Skullcandy, Session Favourite trick:Cab Double 9 Ok.. now we can move on ;) What’s your first memory about snowboard? In which year did you start and why did you choose this sport? It was in 2003-04 I was playing this game on PS1(Shaun Palmer snowboarding) It was sooo fun :) After some time I wanted a real snowboard and my father bought me a 75 cm one ! But that did not go as I have planed ;) I did get really angry because I could not do the tricks that I did at the game ;) But eventually it did go better ! What are best and worst parts of snowboarding for you? I don't know what the pest part is, it has to be snowboarding itself :) worst part has to be a day with perfect conditions and I have to do other stuff! How is your training? Park, gym, trampoline or playstation ;)? hehe, I play allot of XBox 360 like MW3 and COD ;) But mostly I go up to the park, but I do trampoline practise as much as I can ! No gym for me at this time ! Did you lose lots of school’ days for snowboarding this year? What your parents and teachers think about it? hmm... I get allot of days away from school, not that I do not like it ;) but there are so much catching up to do in the end... My parents support me all the way, and my teachers are a bit worried ;) ! We met you in Livigno, during the World Rookie Tour 2013 and you impressed everyone.. What do you think about this event? I think Livigno are awesome ! love the park and the people, the whole event are a great happening :) And I love Italy ! was in Val Senales last spring and felt the same ;) ..and what is the Event of your dreams? I am going to win X-Games one day. Tell us what a young guy feels during his first competitions. Can you feel the pressure or for you is just a funny game? I do not feel any particular pressure, but I know some people are watching my vids at YouTube and stuff. That puts some pressure on myself, I want to show that it is not just at home I can do stuff like that :) Five seconds before your last run. What do you do and what do you think in that moment? I do not know:) I just go for it and take it from there ! Who is your favourite snowboarder and why? Do not want to say any names, there are too many good snowboarders out there, but I like those who go big but NOT forget about the style. Do you practice some other sport or just snowboarding all the year? Well I do allot of sports like, MotoX, BMX, Skateboard, Freeski, and Trampoline What are your plans for the future? First of all i want to go snowboarding as much as possible, and I have to finish up school. Then I will be 16 and we have to see, but hoping to go snowboarding whole time from then on :) Next years we hope to see you in Livigno again! Big Up Marcus .. and have fun! Thanx for a great event in Livigno and you will see me there for years to come !! :) Itw: ElisaMariaFerrari PhotoCredis: Lorenzo Fizza Verdinelli
