Cannelle Bulard (REU) 18, despite placing second in the WAHRLD Pro Junior, had an enough lead on the Regional rankings to be crowned the 2012 ASP European Junior Champion. Bulard, who’s been a dominant competitor in Galicia for the past four days, unfortunately couldn’t keep up with her friend Le Car’s rythmn in the final heat of the event.
“I heard the news that I just won the European Champ’ Title so to be honest a second place is well enough for me right now !” an ecstatic Bulard said. “I’m stoked, I’m starting to surf well again and I felt like I had lost it a little bit, now there’s one more event in Lacanau and that one has always been tough for me so I’m going there to try and break the bad spell and have a revenge on Maud !”
Missing out on the World Junior Championships last year in Lacanau after an early defeat, the yound Reunion Island born has now secured her ticket to the Elite Junior World Tour and is ready to take on the World’s Best in fantastic destinations like Australia, Bali and Brazil.
“I’m so looking forward to competing in such iconic locations, this will be my first time and I’ll try to do everything I can to bring back the Title to France and Reunion Island like some of my friends did in the past.”
