« European kids » better watch out !! When St Barth’s Tessa Thyssen stroke in the last contest in Espinho it was just the begining ! In fact, Guadeloupe’s Kim Véteau was making the finals and Gatien Delahaye was placing himself 3rd ! Then Sopela Pro Juniors came and it’s seamed to be the perfect time for the Caribbean gang to do some damages ! Kim Véteau and Timothe Bisso both from Guadeloupe came out on top looking like it was purely planed without forgetting Tessa getting a 3rd place !
Couple words from one of our champions :
Timothe Bisso : « Sopela was the 2nd Pro Junior of the season. I was sick for the first one, so I had to get a result here, so I trained hard to put every chances on my side ! I also surfed all my heat like they were the last ones, stayed focus from start to finish on what I really wanted and I think that determination payed off and got me to the fnals.
It was a really close final. Mateia (Hiquily) got an interferance so I played on that and put a big pressure on them t’il the end then I got it !
I was lucky to have a big support from the Guadeloupeen’s present there during the hole competition.
Now I am 3rd in the European Juniors rankings and close to be 2nd. All I need is to do the job in Lacanau to stay in the top 5. My main focus right now is to be able to compete in the Juniors International final in Portugal ! »
