Martinique Surf Pro 2017
From April 1st to April 8th, 140 top level international surfers will be competing in the Basse-Pointe spot for the 3rd edition of the Martinique Surf Pro competion!
In just three years, this competition has become a nearly inevitable stage of the world qualifying circuit. After two remarkably successful editions, the Martinique Surf Pro has forged a reputation and a strong image both through the quality of the spot of Basse-Pointe, referred to as the «cauldron» (north-east of the island) and the organization’s efficiency and the warmth of the welcome. 116 surfers have already registered, and given that the the closing date of enrollment is only on March 27th, we should see many others join the party !
A prestigious plateau North America, South America, Europe, Australia, Asia, Africa, the Caribbean … The Pointe Sonn will resonate in all languages and all surfing styles with 140 competitors from each continent, representing more than twenty nationalities. From year to year, there is a strong presence of Brazilians but also more and more Australians and Japanese. With the growing interest of sportsmen for the Martinique Surf Pro, the level goes up from one edition to another, and the 2017 competition already promises to provide an even more daunting challenge than the previous years! The battle is going to be tough, and the points, hard to gain !
All eyes will be on Brazilian Alejo Muniz, American Nat Young, New Zealander Ricardo Christie or Australian Davey Cathels, who all have evolved in the Dream Tour in recent seasons and who will stand as the top-favorites. Of course, they will have to face strong contenders such as Brazilian Deivid Silva, French Marc Lacomare (the 2016 European champion), or Hawaiian Joshua Moniz, winner of the 2015 Martinique Surf Pro and present in all editions.
But, we might be surprised with other unexpected surfers, who started the year in a beautiful way, such as Australian Soli Bailey or Brazilian Peterson Crisanto, for example.
In short, everything is left to play for and the only thing we can say with confidence is that the 2017 Martinique Surf Pro is about to offer each and everyone of you top level sport!
