Alejo Starting Strong

Alejo Starting Strong

by Ryan

Alejo Muniz is off to a great start to the 2013 season with a 3rd place finish at the Breaka Burleigh Pro and 2nd place finish at the Burton Toyota Pro at the Newcastle Surfest. Both events draw talented surfers from around the world and are great warm-ups for the Quiksilver Pro. Currently ranked 18th in the world, Alejo is keen to start the season on fire.

During the smaller days of the Breaka Burleigh Pro and Newcastle Surfest Alejo rode the Puzzle Piece, a great all around and forgiving board. On bigger days when the surf started pumping, as it did the last two days of the Newcastle Surfest, Alejo reached for his go to board the MF Ducks Nuts. This high performance model is designed specifically for good waves. Alejo rode this board in the Surfest semi-final in which he beats fellow WCT surfer Julian Wilson, and again in the final against current world champ Joel Parko.

“I think Alejo is going to have a great year. I have never seen him more focused and he is surfing amazing right now. I have been working with all my team riders to dial in their boards and make sure everything is ready once the season kicks off at Snapper. Alejo’s results at Burleigh and down in Newcastle speak for themselves, he is in peak form and his boards feel good under his feet” – DH.
