Friday Productions recently completed the half hour TV show after filming with Marlon during 2008, the year he clinched his World Tour qualification spot. The film includes exclusive behind-the-scenes footage of Marlon as he slogged it out on the grueling World Qualifying Series. Check out the teaser here:

Lipke’s story is unique ... He is the first German national to compete amongst the 45 best surfers in the world. For the surfing world this marks an historic moment for the sport, and has big strategic benefits with the German market becoming more and more important.

“It’s funny because I really liked the idea of a documentary at first”, says Marlon. “Only after a while I realized how hard it is to be filmed from sunrise to sun-down and beyond, especially during the tough times, when you are down, and the last thing you want is someone sticking a camera in your face asking questions. But that’s the important thing... and that’s what makes it interesting.”

FUEL TV, the world’s biggest action sports channel and seen in over 30 million US homes, also airs in Australia, the Caribbean, South Africa, South America, Central America, Italy and Portugal. Stay tuned for other European airing dates.
