Whitelines Snowboarding

Romain de Marchi

Seen Romain’s part in Vivid? If so, the man will need no introduction. For the uninitiated, this Swiss master is one of the all time greats. A big name even before Absinthe’s 2002 release, a camo-suited RDM blew the doors off snowboarding with his era-defining section that cemented his reputation as a combination of burly powerhouse and loose cannon.

Two years later he was the talk of the town once again, with the opener in Pop that saw him shut down Chad’s Gap alongside Travis Rice. All the while he was a staple of Burton’s (in)famous UnInc crew – and when that disbanded, he set up YES Snowboards with fellow newly-unemployed riders DCP and JP Solberg. While he’s not been as prolific in recent years – alongside snowboarder and business co-owner, he’s also a dad – but he still delivers every time he ventures into the powder.
