Local wildcard, Marc Lacomarewas hyped up and didn't disappoint. So far he’s taken down world title contender Julian Wilson, current #1 Jordy Smith in round 3, then took out his next heat sending him straight to the Quarter Finals. He (and his opponents) know anything is possible.

 

So far he’s taken down world title contender Julian Wilson and current #1 Jordy Smith in round 3. He (and his opponents) know anything is possible.

Somehow, he doesn’t feel any pressure.

 

 

“I just want to deliver my best surfing,” he explained. “Coming into the event as a wildcard, I knew I’d be facing up against the highest seed. And honestly, I think that’s one of the most exciting things about it. I don’t have to worry about points or anything like that, so I think that takes the pressure off of me. I’m just focused on getting good waves and showing the world what I can do.”


At 27 years old, Marc has been knocking on the CT’s door for a few years now. He’s won some major contests in his career, but nothing would compare to winning an event like this in front of his home crowd. Speaking of home, let’s see how it puts Marc at an advantage.


“I know the waves and the sandbanks better than pretty much everyone in this event. I don’t think the guys on Tour are used to surfing waves that are so affected by the tide. But I grew up with it. I know how to handle it.”


With a swell and great conditions lining up for the next few days, a wise eye would stay focused on Marc.

 

 

He’s running wild. Say salut to your 2017 #QuikPro France wildcard, @marclacomare.
