After marked success at amateur events and then on the Revolution Tour, Julia Marino put the snowboarding world on notice when she stomped her way to victory at the FIS World Cup/U.S. Grand Prix big air event at Fenway Park in 2016. Marino, a New England native, wasn't even originally scheduled to compete in the historic event--she snuck in off the alternate list when her teammate Ty Walker was forced to drop after bing injured in practice.
Marino then officially made it a breakout year with a podium performance in slopestyle at the Corona World Championships of Snowboarding in Yabuli, China. At just 18 years of age, she became the first woman ever to land a double in slopestyle competition and she landed not one but two in the same run--a Cab double underflip and a double backflip. The feat earned her third place behind seasoned veterans Jamie Anderson and Enni Rukajarvi.
Before joining the pro's at the elite level of competition, Marino had success on the Revolution Tour, including a win in big air at Mammoth Mountain in 2015.
Hailing from the coastal town of Westport, CT, Marino began competing and training at the age of 12.
OFF THE SNOW
Marino is an accomplished skateboarder; when she's not training on her snowboard at Breckenridge or the Maximise park in Quebec, Canada, she likes to roll around on four wheels.
