A fully fit and recovered Julian Wilson (Australia) is ready to launch himself onto the Association of Surfing Professionals (ASP) Star Rated World Tour at next weeka??s SriLankan Airlines Pro which will run at the famous Arugam Bay point break on Sri Lankaa??s superb south east coast.

Wilson is one of the worlda??s most exciting, progressive fast emerging new-age surfers capable of outstanding performances in all conditions.

A serious ankle injury and subsequent operation severely disrupted his 2010 year-to-date but he has recovered and the super talented 22 year-old Queensland surfer is looking forward to tackling the ASP tour with the ultimate aim of qualifying onto the elite ASP Dream Tour.

a??Before this season began I set a high goal to qualify but the injury certainly set me back a fair way and has taken close to four months to heala?? said Wilson.

a??Over the past month it has rapidly improved and Ia??ve edged my way back into competition with events in the USA and Brazil last month and right now coming into Sri Lanka I feel like Ia??m finally prepared and ready to go.a??

a??Therea??s a lot of the ASP qualifying season to go this year and I have not ruled out the possibility of chasing ASP World Tour 2011 qualification a?? ita??s everyonea??s ambition to make that tour and 2010 was meant to be my first full season dedicated to chasing that tour and while Ia??ve had a set back, right now Ia??m back and set to surf my best so wea??ll see what happens.a??

As an ideal lead up Wilson just spent a week in Western Australia surfing with Taj Burrow and Mick Fanning.

The right hand sand bottom point waves at Arugam Bay may well have characteristics that are similar to the perfect points around Noosa which is close to where Wilson lives and has honed his surfing.

a??None of us know this wave at Arugam Bay but wea??ve heard ita??s a great high performance set-up so ita??s exciting to be heading to a new location and Ia??m very grateful to accept a wild card into this eventa?? added Wilson.

Remaining wildcards will be announced in the coming few days along with a forecast on likely conditions for this exciting new quality event which begins in just over one weeks time.

The line-up for this yeara??s event is outstanding and a few of the interesting high seeded surfers competing include Adriano de Souza (Bra), current world number four rated surfer Jadson Andre (Bra), former ASP world champion Sunny Garcia (Hawaii), Japana??s Masatoshi Ohno, South Africaa??s Royden Bryson and David Weare,Spaina??s Hodei Collarzo and Kolohe Andino (USA).

The SriLankan Airlines Pro will be live webcast and will include a quality produced and globally distributed television show along with television newsfeeds distributed internationally throughout the event as well as highest quality digital images focusing on the event, the environment, wildlife and of course the abundance of surf from the region.

The SriLankan Airlines Pro is made possible thanks to SriLankan Airlines; Sri Lanka Tourism Promotion Bureau, Lanka Sportreizen, Dialog, Billabong and ASP Australasia;
