It was a great weekend in Faro de Trafalgar, Cadiz. Family, friends, good waves and great results, that is our most simple and sincere summary.
Once again Spanish skimboarding scene convened at magical beach of Cadiz for another top level championship. International event this time, with the assistance of some Portuguese skimboarders.
Awesome waves, many top level riders, good organization and an epic spot for first edition of this contest. We hope to have a great future and many editions!
Saturday was not a good wave condtions, for that reason was decided by staff to carry out almost the entire championship on Sunday, with big and powerful forecast.
We can be proud of our team riders results, one more time, in different categories:
Rafael Castillo proving once again their huge capacity to be competitive in every heat, winning Open category ahead Portugues skimboarders Joao Pedro Guerreiro and Nando Silva. While Juanlu González had to resign herself with a 5th place that is not expected, cause he is best connoisseur of that wave. Was a good result anyway, like our youngest rider Jesule’ González sliding to Open semifinals and finishing 3rd in Junior división.
After extremely difficult conditions for all four brave skimgirls competing, where they show what they are made, demostrating theis skimboarding passion. Finally our rider María Conde ‘Xoxe’ take the victory by minimum margin.
Awesome result as unexpected in a división with more participants and high level than usual. Janovi Ródenas, Sergio Gil ‘Shein’ and Rafa Castillo was champion, 2nd and 3rd classificateds, respectively. Of course a moment to remember!
Strongly thank each and every member of the organization and congratulate Raquel Almeida who won the Dogflut Connection board of the draw and is already enjoying it.
