Past Parts: Zac Marben in Shoot the Moon, 2011

Among the vanguard of Minneapolis snowboarders that redefined the streets of Minneapolis/St. Paul, Zac Marben was at the forefront. Powerful, fast, his talent on a twin-tip is pure and when he sets his mind to a trick, the determination is unstoppable. Zac is returning this fall as part of one of the most authoritative crews ever assembled in Mayday from Videograss and his segment from Shoot the Moon is just a small preview of what to expect from Mr. Marben. Here’s a couple of things he had to say about filming that year.

What is the biggest influence on your style?
I don’t know if I have a specific person or anything that influences the way I ride. I just like to go fast, and do tricks that are fun to me. Sometimes I scare the shit out of myself.

Where was the hardest spot you hit while filming and why?
The triple kink I backside tail pressed took a little while to do but it ended up being a fun session.

In the three years since Shoot the Moon came out, how has your career changed?
I filmed my shoot the moon part on a blown out ACL so I had surgery after that and some other various injuries the past couple years. It’s hard sometimes to stay on top of filming while trying to recover from injuries. I always want to get back out and film and push myself though.
