Absinthe Rider Spotlight: Romain De Marchi

Backcountry slayer and all-around hell man Romain de Marchi is a legend in snowboarding. Born in Switzerland, Romain set the bar high years ago banging out heavy tricks on every type of terrain from park kickers to sheer backcountry lines. A fearless attitude and determination allows Romain to destroy bar tabs all night and then be the first on hill the next day.

Friends and fellow riders including Scott Sullivan, JP Solberg, Bode Merrill, Nicolas Muller, Travis Rice, Gigi Ruf, Wolle Nyvelt, and Patrick Armbruster open up on Romain’s insane riding style along with some of their favorite moments with him both on and off the hill over the years filming for Absinthe.
