Cabreiroa Pantin Classic Pro Celebrates 25th Anniversary In 2012
Miguel Galeiras and Marcos Rodriguez co-organizers of the event have confirmed that the Cabreiroa Pantin Classic Pro will be held this season with their continuing support of menís as well as womenís professional surfing in Europe.
One of the most prestigious events of the ASP European Tour, the Cabreiroa Pantin Classic Pro, will return in 2012 and celebrate its 25th anniversary at the iconic ‘Playa de Pantin’ Galicia with an ASP 6-Star Women and 3-Star Men’s event.
"The Cabreiroa Pantin Classic Pro for many years has supported women’s surfing because we consider that it is put to one side by the surfing industry and what we need to support is equality in sport," stated Galeiras. "Especially when dealing with an event or a World circuit where the entire world is watching the image we are giving of ourselves. The Cabreiroa Pantin Classic Pro will continue in it’s venture in the future and we hope it is an example to everyone."
There have been a lot of changes made since the inaugural edition of the Cabreiroa Pantin Classic Pro in 1987 but the goal has remained to showcase the best of surfing and the incredible potential the region of Galicia has to offer.
2012 will come to confirm that Playa de Pantin deserves its spot on the ASP World Tour European leg and organizers have been working hard to make this year count.
"To tell you the truth we feel a little nervous because it is a great responsibility organising this edition," said Rodriquez. "At the same time it has filled us with a sense of pride and we hope the original founders of the Cabreiroa Pantin Classic Pro see in this edition their dream arrive to a consolidated future and that we are up to the standards they originally imagined for the event."
The 2012 Cabreiroa Pantin Classic Pro will run from September 12-16 in Playa de Pantin, Galicia.
