The Corona Extra Pro Surf Circuit 2007-08 returns to Puerto Rico to begin their competitive season.

The APSPR (Association of Professional Surfers of Puerto Rico) is happy to announce that the Corona Extra Pro Surf Circuit will be holding their first event of the season from Sept 29-30th, 2007, at Playa Middles, Isabela, Puerto Rico. Corona Extra have once again signed on to sponsor the 2007-2008 circuit season.

With a $10,000 purse on the men’s side and a $5,000 purse for the women, expect a strong field of international and local surfers to be battling it out for the top prize.

As the first stop on the Corona Extra Pro Surf Circuit’s competitive season, this event will be instrumental for whoever plans on taking the early lead to earn the championship title. On the men’s side, defending champ Brian Toth is facing a strong field of international and local surfers with plenty of up and comers as well as seasoned veterans who look to spoil his chance at a record three-in-a-row.

On the women’s side, several ladies are expected to put up a fierce battle for the crown. Last season came down to the wire, but don’t expect defending champ Connie Arias to back off one bit as she looks to take an early lead and retain last season’s well earned championship title.

Look for Middles to deliver the goods, as this beach not only offers up consistent, quality surf, but its beautiful sand lined shore is a perfect place to watch the ripping or simply work on your tan. With Corona as the title sponsor, entertainment will be first rate. Live music and “heats on demand" videos from the day’s competition highlight the nightlife, and the town of Isabela will heat up when the sun goes down.

Contestants wishing to enter can do so through apspr.net or visit Hang Loose Surf Shop, Playa Jobos, Puerto Rico. A $35 late fee will be charged after September 22, and no entry will be accepted after September 26. For further information, please contact: {encode="info@apspr.net " title="info@apspr.net "}.
