Big wave hellman Benjamin "Sancho" Sanchis joins VonZipper

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 1 August, 2013 : - - Hossegor - VonZipper is proud to introduce Benjamin Sanchis aka "Sancho" to the family. Sancho just left again for Teahupoo where he scored some of the biggest waves of the last "Code Purple" before getting knocked out on a set a couple months ago. However, the 35 year old from Hossegor, France, former winner of the Billabong XXL award is back on his search of the heaviest waves.
Beginning his career as a contest surfer, he quickly realized that it wasn't enough for his thirst of adrenaline and barrels, and since then has been one of the pioneer of big waves surfing in Europe, discovering new spots and pushing the limits alongside his tow partner Eric Rebière.

"Sancho is for sure one of the most respected free / big wave surfer in Europe" stated Adrien Waller, Brand Manager of VonZipper Europe. "Having him join the VonZipper Family was pretty logical and we are stoked to have such a strong character onboard as it will help us to push the brand to a new level".
