Love/Hate: Gian Marco Maiocco

, ,

In the global language of snowboarding, one thing needs no translation. Dudes who FUCKING SEND IT will always make a splash. Every local scene has at least one, and in Northern Italy, the guy making a name for himself globally is Gian Marco Maiocco. But he’s not just sending it off stupid cliffs to flat for fun – he’s also filming himself, editing himself, competing, teaching lessons and hitting the socials to keep his sponsors as happy as he can. Above you’ll find his season recap video. And because deep down, we believe snowboarders are more than just stunt monkeys, we set out to find out more about this tuttofare.

    I’m assuming he pixelated the logo on that rail at 2:40 because it conflicted with one of his sponsors? What is this, the Olympics?

      The blurred logo is a logo of a snowboarding camp in Les 2 Alpes. Gian works for an other camp. But the filmer who shot this shot works for the blurred logo camp. Funny.
