FRONTÓN KING IN GÁLDAR
Gran Canaria Fronton King 2022the most anticipated bodyboarding event of the year on the IBC World Tour celebrates its tenth anniversary. The test, scheduled between October 15 and 30will once again transform the Frontón wave, in Gáldar, into the media epicenter of world bodyboarding with the presence of some of the best riders of the moment, the brave ones able to face ‘The Beast’, one of the most radicals on the planet.
With a full entry list and the participation of 138 riders of 17 different nationalities, the Gran Canaria Frontón King 2022 will crown the world champion in the Men’s category, a title disputed between the South African Tristan Roberts and the current champion of the world, Chilean Alan Muñoz and Hawaiian Tanner McDaniels. Some of the best riders on the planet will also ride the Frontón wave to compete in the Women Pro AM Championship, not scoring for the World Tour, showing that they too dare to ride ‘The Beast’. The event also awards the title of Junior World Champion. Two Canarians are in the running for this prize, Jorge Hernández, winner of the Sintra event, in Portugal, and Gabriel Molina, winner of the Maldives Pro, in the Maldives.
As a novelty, this year the three finalists of The Grom King Tour initiative, an inter-island circuit promoted by the Frontón King for the promotion and strengthening of the youth academy of the Canary Islands, join the junior category.
And to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the Gran Canaria Frontón King as it deserves, the organization has prepared a whole program of activities that includes a dozen concerts with DJs every weekend from October 15 to 30 at the facilities of the event, with the presence of Aseres, Rock Too Much, Dj Ru&man or Nay Jiménez, among others.
