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.
