Fog bogs down Sintra Pro
Day two of the Sintra pro was put on hold after only 1 heat of the women’s division on day two of the APB world tour event in Portugal.
The region is quite famous for this type of weather as the warm air rolls of the land and clashes with the cold water off the coast.
Normally it’s quite short lived but today the fog didn’t lift for almost 6 hours frustrating both competitors and officials.
It wasn’t until 3.30 in the afternoon that the second heat of the day could get underway and world title hope Ayaka Suzuki from Japan had a successful campaign as she moved one step closer to her dream of being World Champion.
Ayaka finished second behind Teresa Padilla from Spain who found some nice peaks on what looks to be the worst day of the waiting period.
Other heat winners included Sari Ohhara and Mayumi Tone from Japan along with Teresa Almeida from Portugal.
The day finished up with the first round of the dropknee world championship with Martin Mouradian from Guadalupe the standout of the round.
The forecast for tomorrow shows an interest in swell so organisers have opted for an early start with all competitors to check-in at 7:30 for eight 7:45 AM start.
Tune into the webcast to watch the worlds best battle it out at the Sintra pro tomorrow, with R3 of the Men in the water first.
