Portuguese Pro Junior Event 1 Praia de Matosinhos
17th May 2015
Today the first event of the Portuguese Pro Juniors was held at Praia de Matosinhos just outside Porto on the North West coast. Praia de Mastosinhos is a left hand beach break and the conditions were favourable for the girls with light winds and a 2 foot swell.
It was 18 year old Mariana Assis from Estoril, who dominated the final posting a 7.75 and 6.45 to step ahead of Camilla Kemp.
After her 13.75 win Mariana said “I’m so happy to win this event. Now I’m going keep focus for the second event with the goal of being the 2015 National Champion.”
It’s great to see in increase in girls competing over the last few years. The competition has really stepped up and the level is very high amongst the juniors with big prospects for the future representation on Portugal on the World Tour.
The Portuguese Pro Junior has 2 events with the 2nd coming up in July 18th and 19th at Santa Cruz, In Torres Vedras, as part of the Festival of Waves – Santa Cruz Ocean Spirit”.
