As a kid I wanted to be a veterinarian. The first memory that comes to my mind is looking at the encyclopedia specifically the volume of the African savannah; tigers, elephants, giraffes, anteaters etc.. Those pictures made me travel to other parallel and distant worlds. Over the years I realized that what really fascinated me from those photographs were not the animals themselves, but the power of photography.



I started surfing in Barcelona 20 years ago. When I went with my surfboard to the beach at Masnou to catch waves and children saw me with the surfboard on the street, not knowing what it was they starting calling me “the nen of peix” which means `the fish boy`.  Back then we had no webcams and I came back from the beach dissapointed many times as there were no waves.



Marc is the co-founder of Goofys, a sports project whose sole purpose is that children with disabilities and evading various pathologies of their routine, enjoy the sea, surf and music and a smile and a good memory are carried. “Being a Goofy is to get up, balance, learn the face of adversity and take every opportunity to overcome”.

The glide, the sound, sharing the stoke and the nonstop smiles are what completely hooked them to this inexplicable feeling. It’s not just surfing a bunch of waves, it’s music, peace and art all in one. It’s pure love.

I want to continue traveling the world, but above all, when I am older, I want to look back and I feel proud of what I have done for the land and the sea that made me vibrate since I was little.
