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.
Organized by Martinique Surfing in partnership with the WSL Qualifying Series, 155 international surfers are registered to date from the United States, Europe, Brazil, Japan and the Caribbean, to compete in one surfing’s best kept secret destinations, to earn WSL Qualifying Series points toward advancing to the WSL Championship Tour.
“Martinique counts about 14 recommended surfing spots from North to South, and offers ideal surfing conditions in warm waters," said Muriel Wiltord, director for the Americas for the Martinique Promotion Bureau, in a written release. “But the Island has much more to offer, blessed with a rich culture, a strong heritage, breathtaking natural beauty and most importantly, its warm and generous people. Martinique Surf Pro puts Martinique under the spot light as a not-to-be-missed surf destination and beyond.”
