New 2012 Event: Sooruz Royan Atlantique Pro Junior
Sooruz, a seasoned event sponsor in Europe, will bring its expertise to the new 2012 event and will help organize the best set-up for surfers, the public and the medias. With lots of experience in the organizing team, we are in for a great experience next July.
ASP Europe is delighted to announce that a new event will join the 2012 European Pro Junior Tour. The Sooruz Royan Atlantique Pro Junior, an ASP 1-Star Men and Women Pro Junior event will run from July 12-15, 2012 on the beautiful beaches of La Côte Sauvage in Royan, France.
Royan is situated just over the Gironde estuary, right in the middle of the french Atlantic coast, and enjoys an extremely beautiful and natural area. The 20km long beach trimmed with forest, has mutliple accesses that lead to a handful of A-Frames beachbreak peaks.
The ‘Côte Sauvage’, literally the ‘Wild Coast’, has already hosted surfing and bodyboarding events in the past but it will be a first on the ASP Tours. Isabelle Peyvel, president of the local surf club and organizer of the event, welcomes all surfers to her event.
"It will be a first for the Surf Club Royan Atlantique, the department of Charente Maritime and our little town of Royan and surroundings" explained Isabelle. "We are really looking forward to a busy week, Royan sees a lot of tourists this time of year and it should be exciting!"
The Sooruz Royan Atlantique Pro Junior, an ASP Europe 1-Star Men and Women Pro Junior event will offer a $5,000 prize-purse for the Men and $2,000 for the Women, along with precious ranking points for this year’s European Junior rankings.
Running mid-July, this event will be the first of the Summer-leg for all our Junior athletes. Registrations are already opened via the Online Membership and Registration system.
The 2012 Sooruz Royan Atlantique Pro Junior will run from July 12-15 at la Côte Sauvage, Entry 46 (parking du vieux phare), Royan / France.
