BASSE-POINTE, Mar­ti­nique – France — Pro­fes­sion­al surfers from all four corners of the earth will soon return to the idyll­ic Mar­ti­nique island for the third con­sec­ut­ive edi­tion of the Mar­ti­nique Surf Pro, from April 1 – 8, 2017 at Basse-Poin­te.

An increas­ingly pop­ular event among the World’s Best QS surfers, the Mar­ti­nique Surf Pro con­tin­ues to play a major role in their qual­i­fy­ing cam­paigns towards the coveted Cham­pi­on­ship Tour. Portugal’s Fre­derico Morais, who won the event in 2016, coun­ted the res­ult as third-best in his sea­son tally to obtain a pre­cious tick­et for the elite tour.

Fol­low­ing two edi­tions graced with beau­ti­ful righthand point break waves, the event will once again unfold at the play­ful Basse-Poin­te, in the North­ern East side of the island. The trop­ic­al weather, very wel­com­ing loc­als and breath-tak­ing scenery of the area is sure to once again be a high­light of the surfers’ sea­son.

This year, a field of 128 ath­letes will have a shot at the 3,000 QS points and US75,000$ glob­al prize purse on offer. Nes­ted in the season’s first half, the Mar­ti­nique Surf Pro is a great step­ping stone for surfers com­ing up strong on the ranks to secure their spot in the back-half of the year’s highly coveted big QS events of Europe and Hawaii.

A few lucky loc­als will also have a chance to battle some of the most suc­cess­ful com­pet­it­ive surfers and demon­strate the tal­ent pool devel­op­ing in the Carib­bean.

The Mar­ti­nique Surf Pro is sched­uled from April 1 – 8, 2017 at Basse Poin­te, Mar­ti­nique – France.
