Ride Snowboards Pro Team rider Marco Feichtner might make snowboarding look easy, but the path to success has been anything but for the Austrian. Macro has a friendly, laid-back persona, and is the type of guy you like to be around. But, underneath it all he’s all business and thrives on hard work – it’s ingrained in his blood. In the fourth segment – which drops today – of Ride’s six-part video series “Because of Snowboarding,” Marco shows us how he lives big both on and off the snow – from throwing giant, stylish airs in the backcountry to digging into his artistic skill and passion for hand engraving masterpieces. For all the grom rippers out there, Marco has these words of advice: word hard and you will reach your dreams.

Each series segment is dedicated to highlighting a different pro rider, and captures the personal stories and intimacy each rider has with snowboarding. "Because of Snowboarding” is directed and produced by Crispin Cannon and Shaun Anderson of The Solidarity Union, with a new segment launching each week.
