Mark Landvik grew up in Juneau, Alaska, where he was molded into the insanely powerful freerider he has become today. He made the move down to the states to make snowboard mecca, Mt Baker home. Mark has a portfolio of numerous influential video parts in feature films such as Travis Rice’s That’s it That’s All, The Art of Flight, as well as several parts in powerhouse production company Standard Films. In 2013, Lando spent his winter traveling and filming with Curtis Ciszek and Bryan Iguchi for his segment in Volcom’s, IP3, as well as Veeco Productions latest film True To This, a feature film celebrating America's first boarding company. Mark is a powder hound like none other that lives for those deep stormy Northwest days, and he's got one heck of a method too.
