SURFING WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP WQS 6* LASANTAPRO

This Championship is making more and more waves each year. In 2006 and with 4* it made a great impact in the news - local, independent, national and international – due to the quality of the surfers, the waves and the organisation.

This quality earned us the ASP prize as the best Championship in the history of the Canaries and best 2006 Championship on the WQS circuit. As well, thanks to the opinion of the competitors, judges and ASP personnel, we are grateful for the opportunity to hold the 6* Prime for the first time in the Canaries.

The arrival of the WQS circuit’s 6*Prime Championship this year in Spain, and in fact, the Canaries, will result in a sporting event of world class standing.

With prizes valued at $125,000 we expect to attract the presence of well-known WCT competitors.

Without doubt, this will be the most widely covered Championship held to date on our coasts, and we hope, one of the greatest successes.

The prize in Lanzarote gets this way as one of the most important of the european calendary.

This year 2008 (click here to see the program) it will strengthen the ties between the Championship and programmes dealing with leisure and culture, joining sports with music, ecology, sports fashion and other events.

These activities parallel to the championship will promote actions and values of sustainability at the place where they develop; La Caleta de Famara and San Juan beach.

Aside from the participant’s actual list, the ASP has requested 20 places for competitors from the WCT who will compete this year’s in LaSantaPro, which we will make us enjoy the maximum level of competition registered up to the date in the Canary Islands.
