Martinique Surf Pro
Surfing at Martinique Surf Pro, Basse-Pointe
The recipe is simple, same dates, same place, more fun, more talent, skills and higher surfing level! The 2016 Martinique Surf Pro will take place at the Basse-Pointe surf spot from the 17th to the 24th of April, 2016.
The 2016 Martinique Surf Pro is currently ranked as a QS 3000 event, essentially meaning that the winner “bags” 3000 points giving him the chance to improve both in his regional rankings and take a leap in the QS rankings too. A great start for any surfer’s year! Organizers say that the level of this year’s Martinique Surf Pro will be significantly improved from last year, as the event has gathered the attention of many international athletes among the world’s elites.
Alongside the surfing action, the organizers are also making sure of the spectators’ entertainment besides the athletic side of the event. A grand opening party on the 15th of April will take place, as well as plenty other artistic events throughout the duration of the 2016 Martinique Surf Pro.
