Manera Welcome’s Eric Dargent

We are proud to welcome Eric Dargent to our team. For the last decade, Eric has been a trailblazer for adaptive surfing and a true inspiration to the community. 

Passionate about surfing since the age of 9, his life abruptly changed during what should have been a normal surf session in 2011. His left leg had to be amputated above the knee, but his indomitable love for life and passion for surfing drove him forward. He was back in the water before he could walk. 

Over the following years, Eric invented, fine-tuned, and marketed a prosthesis adapted to boardsports to increase their inclusivity and accessibility to all. Leading the way, he also participated in seven World Para Surfing Championships and became a three-time Vice World Champion.

We’re excited for what’s to come with Eric on our team!
