Zac Marben

A person with natural style, Zac’s rawness on a snowboard is only second to Jimmy Page’s riffs off his guitar.

First making his stake in snowboarding by ripping rails all over Middle America, Zac has been said to have one of the best covers that Snowboarder Magazine has ever published.
