Airwalk Pro Junior

Unruly Conditions Force Lay Day in Lacanau

The Airwalk Lacanau Pro Junior is off for the first day of the event waiting period. With blown-out, 6-to-8-foot surf cleaning out the Lacanau beaches, organizers will await more auspicious surf to kick things off.

"We had hopes that the wind and swell would decrease substantially throughout the day but it hasn't happened and conditions are clearly maxing out," Rob Gunning, WSL Europe tour manager said. "We've set an early 7:30 a.m. call [for Saturday local time] and hope to start the competition in better conditions."

Final day Highlights at Lacanau

In 2014, the Lacanau Pro Junior crowned Tom Cloarec (FRA) in an exciting final day and great conditions.

Stop N°4 of 5 in the 2015 Junior Qualifying Series, this year the women make their comeback to the iconic Lacanau main beach. With only the grand final in Lanzarote remaining after Lacanau, this event will play a major role in the European Junior title races.
