Tim Boal Crowned 2008 ASP European Champion
CARCAVELOS, Portugal (Sunday, October 26, 2008) – Tim Boal (Anglet, FRA), 25, was crowned ASP European Men’s Champion after his last title contender Marlon Lipke (DEU) was eliminated in the Quarterfinals of the ASP WQS 6-Star Estoril Coast Pro today. Boal, who clinches his maiden regional title, did not attend the event in Portugal due to a foot injury but adds another title to his stellar year after qualifying for next year’s ASP World Tour.
"I am super stoked to get the title," Boal said. "I placed 2nd as a Junior, was the runner-up last year behind Aritz (Aranburu) as well as in the ISA European Surfing Games so it is great to grab that one, eventually."
