Nicknamed “Garcon” or “The Kid”, 19-year-old Maxence Parot started snowboarding at nine years of age because all his friends were in to it. Coached by Max Henault from O’Neill, Parot finished in third place at the 2010 Ride Shakedown, a competition he had always dreamed of winning. As well, Parrot finished third in Slopestyle and first in Big Air at the 2011 Winter Games. In the summertime, Parrot works on a golf course in Bromont, Québec, and trains and practices tricks on the trampoline. Maxence’s father is a former Canadian champion of waterskiing and alpine skiing.
