The fifth leg of the ’07 Moskito Tour is for kids under 16 and presented by Electric, Globe, Santa Cruz and FCS. The event at Zarautz Spain was a huge success.

DAY 1

A great first day for this leg with perfect waves, amazing competitors and plenty of sunshine... The first heat was in the water at 9:30am. With more than 60 kids in 4 divisions, a long day got under way of 15-minute heats, with consistent 1-2 foot beach break, onshore conditions. The level of surfing was excellent and on Saturday night the contest was finally stopped to keep the finals and semi finals for the day after! Organizers, judges and surfers hit the beachside bar for representing in Zarautz!

DAY 2

On the second day, the morning brought a low tide, so organisers decided to wait a while and launched an expression session. Two expression session heats involved some radical manoeuvres and put on a good show. The semi-finals of the under 14 were sent out at 2pm in clean surf.

For the finals the groms were taking it to the next level with some solid performances. All finalists were not scared to hit the lip, demonstrating committed, powerful manoeuvres. The future of European surfing was looking bright for the 6th anniversary year of the Moskito Tour presented by Electric, Globe, Santa Cruz and FCS.

Special thanks to 'Sanma' from Zarautz Surf Club and all the crew that put in two long days work to ensure all ran smoothly. Thanks to the surf clubs from France that travelled to Zarautz for the weekend.
