F Lacanau Pro - Miniramp Event
Founded in 1979, the Caraïbos Lacanau Pro is one of the oldest stages of the professional surfing circuit and at the heart of the evolution of surfing in France and Europe. The contest is an institution through which the public discovered Kelly Slater in 1994 and allows to discover future European stars by matching them with the best surfers in the world. The event is organized in cooperation with the World Surf League.
As part of the side program, Vertical Technik AG built a spine mini ramp with a width of 9 m and an extension. The Lacanau Pro Spine Attack Skate Contest was then run from August 19th to 20th, 2022. Some of the world's best skaters rode their sessions on Vertical's mini ramp. With the best weather and many spectators, this event was a complete success.
