Great weekend in Figueira da Foz, Portugal. Was the last event of the portuguese circuit and it was awesome.

The Basque team arrived on friday, and we took some waves until the Sun went down near Figeira.

On  Saturday the waves were good, and we made lots of waveski & HP heats, but, at 6 o’clock the competition stopped, because of the bad weather and high tide.

The waves were good, and Figeira, it’s a great place to organise a competition. The portuguese organisers showed us a perfect event, and after all competitors had a great dinner together.

Sunday was the finals day, we had great waves, and the jet ski exhibition was incredible. The results were great for me, I made the 1st place in junior and open waveski, as well 1st in junior HP and 3rd in Open HP.

I also take the best wave trophy, with a 9.33. The awards ceremony was unbeatable, once again the incredible easyness of the Portuguese for doing things right.
