Marc Jacobs joins North!

01 August 2019

New Zealand National Champion, Marc Jacobs has joined North Kiteboarding.

One of the most well versed kiters in the industry, Marc is a force to be reckoned with in the Big Air and Freestyle scene, as well as dominating Wakestyle/ Park.

Marc has a unique riding style that is powerful, aggressive and composed. With his ability to throw down monstrous megaloops, it's not surprising that he's been crowned New Zealand National Champion for the last 12 years. He is also a prominent figure in the Cable scene and was the first to land a 'megaloop board off late roll' whilst competing in Red Bull King of the Air this year.

Mike Raper, Brand Director at North says "Marc is back... and he’s riding better than ever. I kinda feel like Marc has found a new direction, his spirit is so strong, he's so intent on pushing the limits. He’s literally training round the clock, in the gym, at the park and on the beach. We seriously can’t wait to see where he is going to take the sport. Watch this space, it’s going to be next level."

As well as becoming an international team rider for North, Marc will also play an instrumental role in testing. His industry experience is a real asset for the Product Development team.

Marc says “I am so honoured to be joining this awesome team and can’t wait to help produce some kick ass gear, I’m really looking forward to starting this new and exciting journey with such a powerful team of people”

As Marc continues to train, he is excited to take his career one step further with North. We are thrilled to have him on board ahead of the 2020 product launch.

We are north.
