Lanzarote’s Perfect Surf Awaits Europe's Best Juniors
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 4 July, 2014 - Playa de San Juan, Teguise Lanzarote - Canary Islands - ASP Europe confirms the Teguise 2014 Franito Pro Junior, an ASP 2-Star Men and Women junior event to be held from September 24-28, 2014 at the iconic lefthand reefbreak of San Juan on Lanzarote Island.
Consolidating a five-event leg for the uprising European surf stars, this inaugural Pro Junior on Lanzarote will offer surfers the opportunity to broaden their experience on a technical wave. Having given the world’s best an equal opportunity in the past with a 6-Star rated event, San Juan will be a proving ground for the next generation of talents the old continent is continually breeding.
“The Franito Surf School, with its 14 years of experience transmitting the surf culture and teaching local kids to surf, is committed and takes on the challenge to organize the first Pro Junior on Lanzarote,” Lorenzo Seis, organizer stated. “The Teguise Pro Junior will be a unique opportunity for all our local surfers to take on Europe’s best and fight for a piece of the action ! Famara is really the perfect location, and we invite everyone to come enjoy the many pleasures Lanzarote has to offer.”
With the autumn season lining up groundswells towards the Atlantic archipelago of the Canary Islands, Teguise and the wave of San Juan are a prime location this time of year to score pumping surf on the volcanic island on Lanzarote.
“It will be a fantastic finish to this year’s ASP Europe Pro Junior series to stage the final event at San juan in Teguise,” Rob Gunning, Tour Manager said. “Lanzarote is such a special island with world class waves on offer and the perfect arena for our top juniors to showcase their talents and battle it out for qualification to the ASP World Junior Championships.”
Host to a number of past competitions on the ASP Europe tours, Lanzarote with the Teguise 2014 Franito Pro Junior continues a long tradition of bringing the best regional surfers to some of the best waves in the world.
“I would like to thank the local organisers, authorities and businesses of Teguise for supporting this exciting new project,” Gunning continued. “I’m looking forward to seeing fantastic performances from both men and women. This event is a great investment in the future of surfing talent.”
The ASP 2-Star Teguise 2014 Franito Pro Junior is scheduled from September 24-28, 2014 in Teguise, Lanzarote / Canary Islands, SPAIN.
