Pontevedra, Galicia to Host Europe's First Qualification Series Event of 2014

PLAYA DE LA LANZADA, Pontevedra – Galicia/Spain (Thursday, February 27, 2014) - ASP Europe is pleased to announce the confirmation of the ASP 1-Star Rias Baixas Pro, as the first Qualification Series on the Old Continent in 2014.

“ASP Europe are very pleased to be returning to Pontevedra for the Rias Baixas Pro this coming April,” Rob Gunning, ASP European Tour Manager stated. “The fact that it has upgraded to a QS event is fantastic for our regional surfers looking for qualification points on the rankings. Last year the set up and installations were first class and I am sure that with the work the event organizers are doing we are in line for yet another spectacular event. On behalf of ASP Europe I want to thank the Diputacion de Pontevedra as well as all the other partners for their continued support of professional surfing in the region.”

The 2014 Rias Baixas Pro is scheduled from April 10-13, 2014 at Playa de la lanzada, Pontevedra - Galicia/Spain.

The Surf Rias Baixas Pro is made possible with the support of the following event partners: Diputación de Pontevedra, Concello de O Grove, Club Praia de Pantín y la Federación Galega de Surf amongst others.
