The Spanish Sunshine Coast – Costa de La Luz Winter 2015 by Ocean and Earth was held over the weekend at La Fontanilla’ in Conil de la Frontera (Cádiz) (Southern Spain).
We are lucky enough to bring you the girls results thanks to Maria Ortiz who spoke to us about the event which held 2 girls divisions; shortboard and SUP.
Maria says “This Ocean and Earth event is one of the major events in Spain because the winners get a direct ticket to the Spanish final (which will take place in Ferrol around June/July). The final took place in small windy waves and it was difficult to get the chance to do various turns in a wave.”
The swell was coming from the West and the waves were 2 foot. The girls in the final were Rita Lohman, Maddie Aizpurua, Julia Gamero and myself. Rita and Julia did not find the rythm during the final and soon Maddie and Maria got a few waves that put them in the lead. Maria said “I was lucky, in the middle of the heat I caught the best of my waves, a solid right popped up and I manage to get a few back-hand turns which put me in the lead till the end of the heat. I was lucky and got the best wave of the final which helped me to secure my win.”
Alazne Aurrekoetxea, María Andrés and Mar Perez battled it out is small conditions as well for the Women’s SUP final. With a number of sharp and critical manoeuvres Alazne came out ontop to take the top placing at the end of the day.
Congratulations to all the girls who competed in the even
