In the last two years Caroline Marks has disrupted the tour with a fierce rail game and a radical approach that’s left the WCT women shaking in their wetsuits. ‘The Grom” as she’s known to her competitors, is the real deal.
Finals day in Peniche, Portugal dished up clean 3 to 6 feet chunky peaks that’d prove the perfect canvas for the Floridian who was unmatched in power and consistency as she sliced and hacked to her second victory of the season.
Now sitting in the number three position on the ratings, and with one event to go in Maui where her backhand prowess will be on display, maybe, just maybe, we’ll see Caroline clinch her first World Title.
“I’m just so stoked on this win. The waves were super fun and Matt Biolos made me some killer boards that felt awesome out there. I’ve been running Kolohe’s fin for a while now, and it’s been super reliable in a bunch of conditions”. – Caroline Marks
In this episode of Behind The Curtain, 4 x World Champion Mark Richards explains how a simple idea produced one of the most fun and rippable board + fin combinations in surfing history.
