Theo Julitte winner of the Caparica Junior Pro
13 abril 2017
Theo Julitte came out on top of a stacked final against Tahitian up-and-comerKauli Vaast, another ripper in the Mignot family, Marco, and the Basque Country's Ruben Vitoria.
Theo hails from the peninsula of Quiberon in the northwest of France, a wave-rich but somewhat underestimated surf region that has produced other talented WSL athletes like the Cloarec brothers for example.
I'm super happy, I managed to surf well and had fun even in the final," he said. "I had a great support team with Nicolas Berthet who followed me all week and taught me how to manage heats. I also prepared in La Torche with Florian Tallouarn and Mael Lelgouach and want to thank them as well as my friends and family." Theo built experience through last season with two good results but today marked his first-ever win on the Junior professional tour. He now has a couple of months to train and prepare to wear a target on his back at the next stop on the Junior Qualifying Series in Espinho. "My goal this year is to do the four stops and win as many as I can," he added. "I really want to make the top 2 and qualify for the World Juniors."
