Burton Signs Romain DeMarchi

Burton Snowboards welcomes Romain DeMarchi as the newest member of the Burton Snowboard Team. Romain is from Switzerland and has been ruling the European snowboard scene for a few years now.

Highlights for Romain include a part in the new OnBoard film, Tribal, as well as impressive performances at events like Arctic Challenge, and Superpark. Together with Jussi Oksanen, Christian “Gigi” Rüf, Stefan Gimpl, Michi Albin, and Terje Hakonsen, Romain rounds out the Burton European slaughterhouse of freestyle snowboarding. With these Europeans and Burton’s strong North American presence, Burton has clearly set the new mark for men’s freestyle teams in Snowboarding.

Romain will begin his season in Europe with the Air & Style and some filming in the Alps. Then he will continue to strengthen his North American presence with a strong film part in one of the major productions here, as well as shooting for magazine coverage around the world. Romain brings his strong riding skills as well as his sense of style to Burton, and will work with Product Managers to continue to create the most progressive and technical snowboarding equipment in the world.
