Pauline Ado Wins Movistar Pantin Classic


PANTIN, Spain (Sunday, September 9, 2007) -Tambien in Espanol

At 16-years-old, Pauline Ado (FRA) seized the Caixanova Surfing Girls 3 Star WQS, staying on the great roll that already gave her a runner-up finish in the Rip Curl Boardmasters 5 Star WQS and the 2007 ASP Europe Women’s Junior title.


Using her experience and light weight in the small waves, the french surfer from Hendaye, France, found her way out of the tricky final where she met junior rival Alizée Arnaud (FRA) and Marie Dejean (FRA), and experienced competitor Estitxu Estremo (EUK).

After a few throw-up scores, Ado stood up and found a solid 6.83 out of possible 10 to get away from her opponents, using her opening 3.67 pts score as a back up to finish ahead with a two wave combined tally of 10.60 points out of possible 20. Remaining very close until the last seconds, Alizée Arnaud surfed an ultimate good wave to get a 5.17 reward, jumping to second place to finish with 9.50 points out of possible 20.


“I’ve had a great time in the pas two weeks. I made the final in the Rip Curl Girls Festival 2 Star Junior event, got the european title and now this 3 Star WQS title. I’m stoked to make it... The waves were so hard to surf, I just did my best and it ended close between Alizée and I but I got this one.”


In the women’s semifinals, Lee Anne Curren’s (FRA) elimination was the main upset. Leader of the Women’s European Pro Surf Tour before Pantin, she left her closest follower Marie Dejean the opportunity to seize the crown in the last heat of the year. Fortunately, with Ado’s victory Curren wins her first European Pro Surf Tour title and leaves Spain with a great achievment.


“I was pretty stressed when I found out that Marie Dejean could get the title away from me. I knew she would have a tough time with the rest of the girls in the final but she had all the potential to make it so I was definitely watching.”


“I am relieved even if I would have loved to win my third event of the year. I wanted to get this title and it’s done so congratulations to all the girls and I hope this will give a good start for the WQS events coming up.”


Talking about her plans for the rest of the year, “I’m going to try and see what happens on all the main WQS events around the world next year. I’d love to make it one day to the ASP Women’s World Tour so I’ll have to learn and I think I am ready to start soon.”


The 2007 Movistar Pantin Classic ended with three new champions, crowning Lee Ann Curren (FRA) Women’s European pro Surf Tour Champion, Pauline Ado (FRA) Caixanova Surfing Girls 3 Star WQS Champion and Marlon Lipke (DEU) the 4 Star WQS event champion.
