Behind the Yawgoons: Marcus Rand

Presented by Stinky Socks

Quite the year for The Yawgoons! But nobody has to tell them that! After scoring a piece in the New York Times earlier in the season, the good people over at Stinky Socks released a short documentary on The Yawgoons and one of it’s most notable, Marcus Rand, in their Behind the Yawgoons title. Featuring riding from Marcus Rand, Dylan Gamache, Brian Skorubski, and Scott Stevens, take a quick peak behind the hard working curtain in Rhode Island that continues to pump out some of the most creative lines in snowboarding.

From Stinky Socks:

The only way to really understand the influence that Dylan Gamache, Brian Skorubski,
Dr. B, Mary Rand, and Marcus Rand have as The Yawgoons is to visit Yawgoo Valley and
see where it all started. So we flew from Bulgaria to Rhode Island, to see it for ourselves.
This was filmed on a car ride from Marcus’ house to Yawgoo Valley Ski Area.
A week there hits you hard and reminds you why snowboarding is so cool, and why we all
do it. The lack of huge mountains, park infrastructure, and tons of snow, made these guys
overcome the laziness that we all have and the fear of being different that
we all battle with. The Yawgoons are one of the most recognizable
crews of all time. Watch as we take a ride with Marcus Rand and
see from his point of view why the Yawgoons are where they are today.
