Martinique Gears Up For Second Edition of Martinique Surf Pro

After a successful first edition in 2015, Martinique will again host world class competitors at Martinique Surf Pro from April 17 - 24.

This World Surf League (WSL) Qualification Series event will take place along the northeastern Atlantic shores of Martinique, in the town of Basse-Pointe. 

It is said to be one of the best surf spots, cherished by the experts, locals and visitors because of its powerful and long reef break waves.
