German surfer Marlon Lipke is your 2012 ASP European Champion.

Wins at the WQS 3*Protest Vendée Pro, the WQS 3* Cabreiroa Pantin Classic Pro, a 5th place at the San Miguel Pro Zarautz and a 9th place at the Sooruz Lacanau Pro were enough for the 28 year-old to claim the title.

" I'm so stoked. I think this is a very important title for me at this stage of my career and to have a European trophy in my hands again after so long is very special. I think this European title race was very close and many of the other Europeans could have had me this contest, but luck was on my side and I think the hard work over the whole year has paid off. I set myself a goal at the beginning of the year and that was to become European champion. I made it and I think it's a title that we should take more serious in the future. I think it's a title that should be pushed more like in other sports. I would like to dedicate this title to my lovely mother."

Marlon is to date the sole German surfer to ever qualify for the elite ASP World Tour.
