Playa de Pantin, one of the most iconic surf spots in Europe, is celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Cabreiroa Pantin Classic Pro. The Spanish wave peak located in the Galicia region brings a 6-Star Women and 3-Star Men’s event to the beautiful landscapes of Ferrol.
"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 Miguel Galeiras, event organizer.
"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", he added.
There has 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.
"The Cabreiroa Pantin Classic Pro is the surfing event that represents Galicia to the rest of the world. Each year the people from Galicia host a world tour event through this emblematic event which shows us as a people, committed, consistent and lovers of the sea each year no matter what happens", says Marcos Rodriguez, co-organizer of the Spanish stage.
The 25th edition of the Cabreiroa Pantin Classic Pro is dedicated to the memory of Javier and will run from September 12-16 in Playa de Pantin, Galicia.
