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.

Local boy Miguel Rocha takes 1st at Vagueira Pro. Congrats Migas!

IMG_3266

What an event guys!

Last Saturday 20th, with sunny and warm weather the 4th round of the national bodysurfing championship took place in Praia do Labrego, Vagueira and the Ahua Riders shredded it!

3/4 feet waves up to 6 feet in the finals and strong currents made all competitors struggled to get through every single heat, which by the high tide seemed more like a biathlon contest with the athletes having to run through the sand and pier to the line up.

Despite the conditions, the Ahua Riders surfed awesome runs taking them right up to the podium with Miguel Rocha snagging 1st place, Rodrigo Carrajola landing 3rd and Henrique Madeira reaching 4th place. The 2105 champion Antonio Stott took 2nd.

Being a local boy, Miguel Rocha surfed very strongly with long waves and power maneuvers on the lip. Our grommet Rodrigo Carrajola, took his bodysurfing to a higher level nailing extreme air rolls. Henrique Madeira was the big surprise, coming from the trials he surfed very consistently every heat winning against others big bodysurfers who were fighting for the championship.

Another highlight were the amazing performances of the two only women athletes, Sofia Santos and Marta Leitão, leading them to the 1/4 finals.

During the event, a buoy and sunga contest took place and thrilled all the presents with an awesome vibe and crazy trunks alongside the overwhelming cheering fans that came to support Miguel Rocha on his crusade.

With one event to go, Miguel Rocha is closer to became the next national bodysurf champion, for which we are already setting a big party to celebrate it!

Ahua wants to special thanks to Miguel Rocha and Maria Pedro, for their unconditional love and accommodation at their home, to the Vagueirudos for their unique support, friendship and energy, to Kika and her crew from Bar Praia do Labrego for their kindness and affection, to Mare restaurant for the wonderful steaks, to Bruno Kalssas/ ASV for this support, to Ferneto for believing in us, and to Alfarroba Organization and everyone involved for such a stellar event and see you all at the next leg on the 10th at Praia de Supertubos, Peniche for the final Round!
