LAS PALMAS, Spain – Registration is now open for the Gran Canaria Pro-Am, stop #2 of the 2018 APP World Surfing Tour. To be held on the stunning north shore of Gran Canaria, in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, this second and final surfing stop will deliver a spectacular next chapter for the Tour in 2018 with a pumping right hand point break to contrast the predominantly left hand beach break conditions we saw in Long Beach, NY.
The Gran Canaria Pro-Am will be the final stop of the Surfing Tour for 2018, as Sunset Beach will return as the Opener for 2019, so World Champions will be crowned in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria in December to wrap the 2018 season for the APP World Tour.
As with all APP Surfing stops, there will be an open trials event and youth focused competition to provide opportunities for all. This will of course then all culminate in the prestigious main event, where the very best athletes in the world battling it out for the World Championship Title.
