This weekend it was the first event of the French Cup of Bodyboarding that took place in beautiful Mimizan in the South West of France.
The girls were lucky to score great conditions 4-6 foot offshore with “good hollow sections for the finals” said Candice Bride.
Candice played it safe in the final after a strong semi final place that put her head in a good place. She said
“I prefer to do big rolls in the hollow parts of the wave but in the final heat my best wave was a wave with a spin in the flat part, a roll in the opening and the second in one to finish off the wave.” Towards the end of the final she found a perfect hollow left where she had enough face to carry out a solid spin and roll.
Candice said after the final “I came out of the water pretty satisfied with my surfing in the final even though my scores weren’t matched from the semi-final (with a 9 and 6 to combo her competitors) it felt great to take the win in the first event of the season.”
Candice said the final was tough with elite bodyboarders Cléo and Natalia from Basque Country and Lisa all working hard with a variety of moves and skills.
Upon receiving her place on the podium Candice dedicated her win and paid tribute to a close friend who passed away last week.
The next event is coming up in 3 weeks in Labenne, France. Candice says “It’s a good wave for bodyboarding and I often go there ego train so I hope to we get some great waves.”
