Exciting Pro Surfing Action Returns To Puerto Rico
On the weekend of October 16-18 exciting pro surfing action returns to Puerto Rico at iconic Middles Beach in Isabela. Middles holds an historic place in surfing history, as it was the site of the 2010 former ASP World Tour now WSL, when Kelly Slater surfed to win his 10th World Title. The giant swells that are pushed southward by cold fronts and tropical storms are the annual attraction that has lured International surfers to Puerto Rico for over fifty years.
This will be the 28th edition of the Corona Extra Pro Surf Circuit, and it will add up the points race to crown the 2015-2016 O'Neill Series Champions for both the men and women competitors. The competition season is supported by APSPR (Association of Professional Surfers of Puerto Rico) and consists of three events. Each has over $37,000 in prize money, with $25,000 allocated for the men and $12,000 for the women, which means that we will be able to pay the winner of the Men a first prize of $10,000. The Women’s champion will receive $5,000”. Over $110,000 will be awarded in prize money to the surfers as the yearly champions are decided. A field of 60 or more contestants is expected that will include competitors from US, Caribbean Islands, Central and South America.
