ASSOCIATION PROFESSIONAL SURFING PUERTO RICO (APSPR)
Corona Extra Pro Surf Circuit returns to Domes.
On the weekend of March 7 & 8 exciting pro surfing action returns to Puerto Rico at iconic Domes Beach in Rincon. The alternate site is nearby Maria's. Domes holds an historic place in surfing history, as it was the site of the 1968 World Surfing Titles, when Hawaiian Fred Hemmings surfed to victory over Australians Midget Farrelly and Nat Young. The giant swells that are pushed southward by cold fronts in the Northern Hemisphere are the annual attraction that has lured International surfers to Puerto Rico for fifty winters.
This will be the 27th edition of the Corona Extra Pro Surf Circuit, and it will kick off 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, meaning over $110,000 will be awarded in prize money to the surfers as the yearly champions are decided. This event will also feature the $1,000 O'Neill best performance awards, which are awarded for the highest heat scores in both the men's and women's divisions.
The Corona Extra Pro Surf Circuit, was founded in 2001 by Werner Vega, surfboard shaper and owner of Hang Loose Surf Shop, in Isabela. “Since we began fourteen years ago, Corona Extra has been the biggest supporter of Puerto Rican pro surfers” said Mr. Vega. The continued support of Corona Extra shows a huge commitment to the sport and it’s athletes. The contest will have a total purse of $37,000, divided into $25,000 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”. A field of 60 or more contestants is expected that will include competitors from the Mainland East Coast, West Coast, Argentina, Venezuela and the Caribbean.
