Hossegor, France- Nixon is proud to welcome French surfer Marc Lacomare to the Nixon European surf Team.
Marc’s promotion to the European team comes off the back of the 21-year-old’s emphatic victory at the latest Nixon Surf Challenge in La Graciosa in the Canary Islands.
The multiple French Junior Champion and former ASP Billabong World Junior Champion is no stranger to the Nixon family having previously been on the Nixon flow program. Following Marc’s impressive showing in the Canary Islands, the team made a unanimous decision to promote the Hossegor-based surfer to the European surf team.
Reflecting on his new status in the Nixon set-up, Marc said: “It’s a real honor to be part of the Nixon Team, and to call guys like Jose Maria Cabrera, Benjamin Sanchis and Jonathan Gonzales my teammates. I had a killer week in La Graciosa surfing with them all, and this special recognition from all the guys feels great!”
Franck Corbery, Marketing Manager at Nixon Europe said: “Marc has been making a big name for himself in recent years, and is really starting to fulfill all the potential he showed in the Junior leagues. His incredible talent for surfing is matched by his equally impressive appetite for charging hard, and that passion is sure to stand him in good stead as he continues to focus his efforts on the WQS tour. Welcome to the team, Marc!”
