On the beach of Las Canteras, another exciting day of an international competition that reaches more intense levels took place. The most experienced surfers entered the water, culminating in the crowning of the new world champion in the PRO Junior 18 male category.

The Japanese Kapono Fukuda, revalidated the title he won in 2022, giving the fourth title of this nautical event to Japan. The other great protagonist of this final, the Cadiz Enrique Perez, started his performance strongly, but his opponent had a fast pace keeping his score high, while Perez lacked time to complete a maneuver that would allow him to scratch the 3.34 points with which Fukuda overtook him.
