Steven Pierson has conquered the 2013 Pantin Classic Galicia Pro, in Galicia, Spain.
The wave factory of Pantin produced clean 2-3 foot surf to crown Steven Pierson, in a hard-fought final against Billy Stairmand, Carlos Munoz and Jose Ferreira.
"I'm so stoked to win here, I love Pantin, the landscapes are amazing and the waves are fun! There's a good little left like home, except the water's freezing! I believe I'm the first Tahitian to win in Pantin so it makes it extra special", says Pierson.
The Polynesian surfer posted an incredible four 9+ scores on his way to his maiden Star tour win. With a good momentum going into the ASP Prime in Azores, Pierson will be looking to confirm his form against the world's best.
"I'm super motivated, I had friends here with me and my girlfriend's been supporting me. For me the most important thing is to have your head straight and she gives me that, cause everyone's ripping and you got to be strong mentally".
"Next stop Azores, I'm grateful to get the ASP wildcard and I hope I can do good there too and climb a few spots on the rankings", adds Steven Pierson.
