The Santa Cruz International Skimboard contest in Portugal this past weekend was the one! The waves were excellent, the crowd was stoked, and all of the skimmers had a blast. This year the level of riding from the european skimboarders was much higher and they showed that they are ready for the Ust Event in France. The Pro finals were really exciting with the best waves of the contest. Hugo Santos pulled off a 10 point ride.
The final results:
1st: Hugo santos
2nd: Emanuel “Mega” Embaixador (Team Zap)
3rd: Andre Abrantes
4th: Lino Curado
5th: Simao Pinto (Team Zap)
6th: Tristan Lamy from France
Big ups to Mega and Simao for placing at the largest skim event of the year in Portugal. Everyone was stoked on our epoxy boards and new bat tail shape. Thanks to our rider Jose Costa for running the event!
