Portugal’s National Bodyboard Tour – Event #1 Results 2015

The first of 7 National Bodyboard events in Portugal for 2015 was held at Costa da Caparica, near Lisbon in conjunction with the Surf Event ALLIANZ ERICEIRA PRO .

As with the surfing the conditions and waves were small and quite poor conditions for the event with a 1 meter onshore swell. Despite the conditions, it wasn’t at all a let down with all the girls ripping with a lot of high scores com in out being posted consistently. “The contest was great and had a good vibe” says winner Joana Schenker,  ” Being part of the “Caparica Spring Surf Festival” was great  and the contest site had lots of people watching, it was good to have the exposure on bodyboarding too.”

The girls took advantage of the atmosphere and crowds putting on a great show. Joana says of the finals “Marta Leitão was getting good scores all event and was the one to beat, and we had a surprise with Ana Peres making it to her first open final, being still a junior athlete, she did really well.”
