BASSE-POINTE, Martinique -- The world-class surf competition Martinique Surf Pro will be hosted for the third time in Martinique from April 1 to 8, 2017.

This World Surf League (WSL) Qualification Series event will take place in the town of Basse-Pointe located on the North Atlantic coast of the island. This spot, cherished by aficionados, locals and visitors alike, is the perfect location because of its powerful and long reef break waves.

The third edition of this competition will gather 128 world-class surfers from up to 25 different countries in Europe, North and South America, Asia, the Caribbean, Africa and Oceania.

Martinique Surf Pro is the only WSL Championship Tour competition hosted in the Caribbean; and at the end of the event, the winner will gain 3,000 points for the Qualifying Series.

“Martinique Surf Pro offers a tremendous spotlight for surf in Martinique. More than 14 surfing spots around the island, from north to south, await discovery, said Muriel Wiltord, Director Americas of the Martinique Tourism Authority. “The improved non-stop service from the US offered by Norwegian Air from JFK, Boston and BWI and American Airlines from Miami is the key to positioning Martinique as a world-class surf destination.”

The island has also much to offer: a remarkable natural beauty, one of the world’s finest rums, a unique Creole cuisine, a pulsating authenticity and most importantly, the warmth and generosity of its people.
