The competition, which took place yesterday (22 January), was able to take advantage of the bad weather being experienced across Europe.

After waiting for almost two months for the perfect conditions, surfers took to the sea and rode on waves an impressive 10.6 metres in height, however they were not as big as the 15 metres which had been predicted.

Lucas Chianca and Maya Gabeira won the awards for best Men’s and Women’s performance. Chianca also won best Team performance.
