Still no wind in Santa Cruz

Written by Editor on . Posted in News

KPWT Portugal Day 3The day for the Wave Riders started at 12h00 with a skippers meeting and not much wind. The riders were kept on standby until conditions were evaluated again at 14h00.

Activities on the beach included: self-defense classes in KRAV MAGA, beach volleyball and to enjoy the surfing and kayaking competitions on the water. The local television production crew is broadcasting a live stream from the beach available online at www.santacruzoceanspirit.org/OS_LIVETV.html

The race director kept the riders on standby until 18h00, as conditions seem to get better in the afternoon. Unfortunately today, the wind just never came, swell was good at about 1.5 meters, but tomorrow looks good so hopefully we can continue with the single elimination second round for men.

Skippers meeting tomorrow will be at 11am and I think we are in for some great Wave Master action!
The main stage will host Marcelinho da Lua ft MC Angelo B, Takama Zion and Freshkitos tonight, all promising to get the dance floor bouncing! Thank you again to all the sponsors for their support, the week ahead is jammed packed with action with the KPWT Wave Masters, Skim Boarding Championships, a host of international bands and some entertaining beach action!
