Marcus Avila has two happy places… the mountains and the ocean. He lives in San Clemente, California and owns two restaurants in Orange Country, which give him the ability to make midweek surgical strikes to Mammoth with his family during the winter, and score surf year round. He follows the swell and the powder, and his heart is in both sports even on the “off days”. When the waves are small, he is often seen sharing waves with his wife and 4-year-old twin boys. When the powder is tracked up he chases his boys up and down the bunny hill with his wife. His goals are to: stay stoked, work hard, play hard, and enjoy life to the fullest.
This season is looking promising for Marcus as long as the snows gods are nice to him. He has hopes for multiple powder days in Mammoth along with a trip to Telluride in March followed by a BC Heli trip. It’s looking to be an epic year to be on a Snoplank for Marcus.
