Pro snowboarder Marcus Kleveland casually lands a backslide flip from a high rail.

Pro snowboarder Marcus Kleveland aged just 18 years old from the Norwegian town of Dombas has already been hailed as the possible future of slopestyle and big air snowboarding.

Even at his young age, he has already accumulated some big accolades. 2016/17 Air & Style series champion, 2017 X Games slopestyle gold medallist, and the 2017 X Games big air silver medallist.

Kleveland is set to appear at his 1st winter Olympics in Pyeongchang 2018 and is hotly tipped to win multiple gold medals.

Kleveland was the 1st snowboarder to land a quad cork 1800 in a big air competition. By age 11, he had already landed double corks and was quickly recognized as a snowboarding prodigy. In 2013, a 13-year-old Kleveland became the youngest snowboarder to land a triple cork.

His 2016/17 season proved to the world that he has progressed from prodigy to pro when he won his 1st major accolades at the Aspen X Games. He took a silver medal in big air and a gold medal in slopestyle in the space of three days.

Not satisfied with being amongst the snowboarding elite, Kleveland is also a skateboard and motocross aficionado. At one point in his early career he was torn between professional skateboarding and snowboarding.
