Tahiti Nui Pro Junior Adds Women’s Division For 2013

[ 0 ] January 22, 2013 |

COOLANGATTA, QLD/Australia (Monday, January 21, 2012) – ASP Australasia and the Tahitian Surfing Federation are pleased to announce that the Tahiti Nui Pro Junior will be adding a women’s 3-Star division this year. Held at the beautiful Papara rivermouth in Tahiti, competitors will get the chance to battle for precious ASP Australasia Pro Junior Series rating’s points in truly world-class conditions from April 10 – 12, 2013.
Ellie-Jean Coffey (AUS) last year’s ASP Australasian Pro Junior Series runner-up is looking forward to competing in Tahiti and surfing at a break that she thoroughly enjoys.

“I’m really stoked to have this event added to the calendar,” Coffey said. “I think I’ve been to Tahiti seven times and I love it there, it’s so beautiful. I’m glad the event will be at Papara, I’ve surfed there a few times and it’s always really fun. It will be great to head over there and get to surf against the Tahitian girls, I know some of them are really good surfers.”

Pascal Luciani, Tahitian Surfing Federation representative and Tahiti Nui Pro Junior event organiser is thrilled to be adding a women’s division this year to help promote women’s surfing in Tahiti and throughout the Asia Pacific region.

“We are really excited about holding the first women’s ASP Pro Junior event in Tahiti at the beautiful spot of Papara,” Luciani said. “We haven’t had professional women surfers competing here since the WCT women’s event at Teahupo’o was cancelled in 2003. This will be truly a motivating opportunity for our girls who have great potential but not many opportunities to compete at an international level.”

Dane Jordan, ASP Australasia General Manager is also thrilled about the additional support for women’s surfing and thinks that the travel will help the young surfers prepare for their future careers as professional surfers.

“The ASP and the surfers are grateful for the support of the Tahitian Surfing Federation,” Jordan said. “This event will help the surfers gain a feeling for travelling and competing that will help them in their future careers. There are also some promising young surfers in Tahiti that will be able to use the event to gain international exposure. It’s an exciting step for women’s surfing in the region.”
