After a commendable fifth place finish at the Lacanau Pro last week-end, Chelsea Tuach has continued to progress through the rounds at the Pro Anglet with her smart, fluid, powerful surfing, defeating one of the event favorites, former world champion from Peru, Sofia Mulanovich, along the way.
Tuach now finds herself in the quarter-finals and will once again go up against French surfer Cannelle Bulard who narrowly edged her out of a semi-final berth last week.
“I have been enjoying my time competing in the South West of France. The waves have been quite challenging but I am happy with the way that I am surfing, my boards are feeling great and I am looking forward to matching up with Cannelle tomorrow. We had a close battle the last time we met so it should be a great heat!”
Tuach, who is currently ranked 17th in the world on the World Surf League (WSL) Women’s Qualification Series rankings, is hoping to amass more points to keep progressing up the rankings.
She competes in another major event, the Pantin Classic, in Spain next week. (PR)
