Bodysurfer Henrique Pistilli desafia a Nazaré.

O prestigiado bodysurfer brasileiro Henrique Pistilli, também conhecido como Homem Peixe, irá estar em Portugal no próximo mês de Outubro a filmar um documentário para a televisão brasileira Canal Off.

De 10 a 28 de outubro, o cenário escolhido serão as ondas da Nazaré, no qual Henrique Pistilli irá pôr à prova um wetsuit (fruto de dois anos de muito trabalho e pesquisa) com características específicas para apanhar ondas grandes com o corpo na modalidade de Tow-in.

Com mais de 30 anos de contacto com o mar e experiência em desportos de ondas, Henrique Pistilli elegeu o Bodysurf como a sua arte e ferramenta de trabalho para aquela que é a sua profissão e uma das suas grandes paixões, o Sea-coaching, no qual trabalha o desenvolvimento pessoal, social e profissional através do contacto com o oceano.

Durante a sua estadia, Henrique Pistilli promete ainda algumas surpresas, pelo que fica a sugestão de ficarem ligados às redes sociais do Henrique Pistilli e Ahua.

A Ahua orgulha-se de ser parceira nesta aventura, que mostra assim ainda mais todo o  potencial e adrenalina que a modalidade do bodysurf oferece.

This weekend took place the Euro Bodysurf 2017 Tour 2• leg this time in Anglet, France.

With long paddle sessions to the line up, 1,5m waves, sunny weather and the usual amazing vibe shared by all the bodysurfers, this event was another huge sucess and we couldn’t be more happy with the our boys Miguel Rocha and Pedro Collaço achievements, reaching the 1/2 finals. 

It has been a remarkable journey since the European bodysurf tour began to this guys 3 years ago in the same place, Anglet. 

Another amazing rider and Bodysurf Ride project fellow Antonio Stott, took an awesome 3th place in the open finals category.

Alongside the 3 great bodysurfers, a Portuguese crew helded by 9 riders participated in the event, with Marta Leitao taking 4th place in women’s category. 

Right now we were told the crew is heading to Hossegor to catch some waves, after a unique “black ball” wedge Session in Grand Place, Biarrtiz. 

We want to thank the Euro Bodysurf Tour organization for the vibe, welcome and stellar event.

The world surf reserve Ribeira de Ilhas, Ericeira was the choosen spot for another national bodysurfing championship leg with our boy Rodrigo Carrajola taking home the highest podium and now leading the ranking.

Choppy waves and on-shore wind made all riders struggle throughout the event looking for the best waves. Despite the rough conditions there was high performances of pure surfing and power maneuvers showing how much the level has improved in the last 2 years.

The final podium was set by waterman and local João Brogueira taking 2nd, Felix snagged a 3th reaching his first finals and Antonio Stott finishing 4th.

Good performances also for Miguel Rocha 5th, Henrique Madeira 7th, Gonçalo Tita 9th Pedro Collaço 13th and Manuel Espada 17th place. Niiiceee!!
