Carina Carvalho, mentor of BBGE and regional champion of bodyboard summarizes this edition: “I conclude the event with the feeling of accomplishment. The waves of Madeira did not disappoint and the Bodyboard Girls Experience 2016 had high quality waves in several spots of the island. Tourist and leisure activities generated good vibrations in the athletes, a clear sign of the touristic and sports potentiality of Madeira in this segment. This year there were more participants coming from various parts of the world, which confirms the gradual international projection of the event. For 2017 there is the goal of raising the project to a higher level. We will try to bring some of the best freesurfers in the world that aren´t doing competition now days and we will take the bodyboard girls to the island of Porto Santo in one day trip with a lot od differente activities. I´ll also try to organize a Bodyboard Girls Experience event elsewhere in the world in the near future since its concept is unique within the bodyboard trips worldwide”.
