Marcus Kleveland is a rad kid.. Super talented on a board yet sensitive & attentive to the people around him. Best of all, his parents are ANYTHING but "soccer moms or soccer dads". Marcus is your typical pre-teenageer kid.. Full of energy, loves to crack jokes and play funny pranks on his friends and eats too much junk..If it was up to him, he'd eat chocolatines for brekkie, lunch and dinner.. Then again, he's also smart, reflected and he knows exactly what he wants- To snowboard professionally.. How do you talk to a 14-year old kid that does 10's for warmup and lands 14's 1st try? Easy.. You give himshit.. I constantly harass him for his fashion choices, hair this or that and last but not least-music preference (Markus likes electro/dance music... aaaaargh)And you know what? He gets it.. He understands that constant harassing is the only acceptable form of male bonding.And he's starting to bite back too... It's brilliant. It's been an amazing ride with Marcus so far. Cheers to the future.

What was your first snowboard? It was like a 75cm board with a wasp on it,I did not find any name on it and I still got it!

What was your first snowboard movie that got you hooked? I think it was "Walk the Plank"some years ago.

Scariest moment of the season? Almost fell of the jump at Freestyle CH qualification!

Best trip? Sun Valley, Idaho. Performance camp with lots of awesome people

One item you always have in your snowboard pants: My iPhone ;)

Besides snowboarding? Skate, Motocross, Trampoline, BMX.

Future plans? Ride more! Do some crazy BC pow riding!


Volcom Snow's The Launch - Watch Now!
Last month our Volcom Snow ams, better known as the Stone Army crew, loaded up the RV and charged up to Bear Mountain for Snowboarder Magazine’s ninth annual The Launch 2016 presented by Volcom. The Launch is an assembly of age 21 and under riders handpicked by the Snowboarder Magazine crew for a 4 day media shred frenzy, and this year it was brought back to the San Bernadino mountains and constructed by the Bear Mountain crew full of endless rails, transition and kicker possibilities. Despite some windy, blizzard, and sometimes great conditions the boys were on fire with non-stop bell-to-bell action! When it was all said and done, Brock Crouch was awarded Standout and 10 yr old Aussie Valentino Guseli took home the Super Grom award for charging almost every feature in the park!

This is a camp where a max of 30 campers can sign up to for four days of fun and coaching in the park by Marcus himself, the amazing Mary Luggen and Elooa coaches... Nedless to say, the camp was fully booked. Everyone stays and eats together at the upscale Youth Hostel named Jufa down in Kaprun, where new friends for life are made over cold drinks and photo & video analysis of the days riding at night. Elooa Camps is run by a former Volcom rider and they offer trips and camps ranging from splitboarding to Japow to Heliboarding in BC. Have a look here yourself: ELOOA Then sign up for a chance to ride with other Volcom snowboarders such as Markus Keller, Mary Luggen and Sarka Panchochova.

Air and Style Innsbruck 2016
Volcom snowboarder Marcus Kleveland and Torgeir Kleveland got 2nd and 3rd place at Air & Style Innsbruck... Vernon was of course there, watch the video here.
Congrats to Marcus Kleveland and Torgeir Bergrem for 2nd and 3rd place at the 2016 Innsbruck Air&Style
Wow, what a weekend it’s been in Innsbruck… The venue of the Air&Style had been shifted from the Bergisel Olympic Ski Jumping Stadium to downtown Innsbruck to accommodate even more fans. And they came out in huge numbers, no less than 17500 tickets were sold.. Hopefully, most of them came to see the snowboarding, not the trance/dance/rave/jungle/German hip hop sound on offer. Aside from that though, the set up was amazing and everything went according to schedule until the wind kicked in.. A gnarly föhnwind started blowing from the south, up from the Brenner Pass with a strength more resemblant of coastal climates.. It was so strong that sponsor banners started flying and jumping was out of the question. After the completion of round 2, the semis and finals had to becancelled, leaving Sebastian “Toot’s” Toutant in first place, Marcus Kleveland in 2nd and Torgeir Bergrem in 3rd. Huge congratulations to our boys, who of course were handsomely rewarded for their aerial efforts come night time, but that’s another story.
