Day 3; EuroSUP Peniche

Day 3 of EuroSUP 2017 was a short one here in Peniche. Just three heats of surfing were run today due to the swell that has provided such fun surf over last few days starting to wane, and with the technical races complete and the long distance event on Friday there were no race events today.

The last of the swell saw 1-2ft waves that still provided a good platform for competitors to showcase their surfing, but ulyimately would get too full to surf on the high tide. Sofie Simonson (SWE) was a standout in the womans first repercharge round, making the most of the surf to put in a couple of good scores whilst Ollie Laddiman (WAL) and Carsten Kumis (GER) were the heat winners in the two repercharge heats of the mens division. 

Competition will resume tomorrow with the long distance paddle race, which will start from the scenic Berlengas Islands and finish on the beach at Molho Leste.
