French ripper Vincent Duvignac joins C-Skins
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 21 February, 2014 - C-SKINS Wetsuits are proud to announce the official signing of European ripper Vincent Duvignac on a two year Team Rider deal. Vincent hails from Mimizan, France, where he still resides with his wife and young son.
Vincent attributes his talent to the west coast of France and its fantastic beaches and ever changing sand bar set ups, allowing him to hone his barrel skills and carving turns. Over the past two years Vincent has competed across the globe on the WQS tour and other key events.
In 2013 wearing C-Skins wetsuits, Vincent had a fantastic run of events and performances achieving a 3rd in the ISA China Cup of Surfing, Winning the 2013 Eurosurf in the Azores, Winning the 2013 Nixion Challenge held in Iceland (-2 °C Air Temperature) and winning the Rip Curl La Nord Challenge held in spectacular December waves.
After being injured Vincent is planning to kick start his competitive year in April at the WCT 2014 Trestles Prime event “I’m not planning to surf any comps until the Prime event. It’s been a good month and I think I’m just about ready to surf again.
There are always positives to take away from being injured. It teaches you not to take things for granted, to make the most of every day and to listen to yourself and your body”. His choice to re-align himself with C-Skins Wetsuits alongside a new sponsorship deal from Reef can only help him to build on the successes of his 2013 season.
C-SKINS are a young, focused and innovative surf wetsuit company run by Surfers. They are delighted to have Vincent officially signed as one of their team riders, and believe his professionalism, motivation and his ability to relay feedback on their product range will help to keep C-SKINS at the forefront of wetsuit design especially in the testing colder climates.
