Born into the brand at the young age of 13 years old Caroline Marks has been dubbed the “Next World Champion.” And she's well on her way. Most recently she was awarded a wildcard into the Swatch Pro at Lower Trestles, becoming the youngest wildcard competitor in the history of the World Surf League. She has been riding for Fox since she was 9 years old and loves spending every day in the water. This past summer was record breaking for Caroline as she backed up her NSSA National Women’s title, her U.S. Championship title and she won the 2015 Pro Jr. U.S. Open becoming the youngest-ever U.S. Open champion.
