The first German ever to qualify for the World Tour, goofy footer Marlon Lipke honed his skills in the reefs and beaches of Portugal. A polyglot (and what European travelling pro isn’t?) earned a reputation as a fierce stick-to-it warrior who never quits. This same tenacious fighting sense has brought Mr. Lipke into the business world with the launch of two very different companies, Jam Traction accessories and also Surfguide.com, a combo global surf atlas and travel site. Lipke continues to travel and compete.
