Competition starts at a good rhythm in Santa Cruz
The Noah Eurosurf Junior 2018 started today at Mirante Beach, in Santa Cruz, with three foot waves. The contest that brings together the top 17 nations of European junior surfing, was put on today, with the first two rounds of the under-16, under-18 and under-18 girls Bodyboarding categories as well as the first two rounds of the under-18 Longboard category.
In spite of the intense competition between all the athletes, the highlights went to the “usual suspects”, with the French, Portuguese and Spanish teams dominating the 29 heats that were put on today.
French bodyboarder Yon Aimar, competing in U18, got the two best waves (7.75 and 7.50) and the two best heat scores of the day (14.00 and 13.75), in 10 and 20 possible points, respectively. His compatriot Cornelius Accoh, in Longboard U-18, also stood out, with a wave of 7.5 and a total of 13.25.
Among the Spanish athletes, Teresa Padilla, Iago Formosel and Armide Soliveres were the highlights, with waves in the 7 points scale, while in the Portuguese team we had Filipa Broeiro, David Vedor, Pedro Ferreira and Joel Rodrigues as best athletes today.
“It was a very productive day, because we were able to complete everything we had
planned, in good conditions,” said Tiago Matos, technical director of the event. “Tomorrow we will put the remaining categories in the water, also with the first two rounds, so that we can be more comfortable during the rest of the week and wait for a bigger swell, scheduled for next weekend”. The Noah Eurosurf Junior 2018 will have another call tomorrow, at 8:30 a.m.
