The prize giving happened after an epic final where the wind just turned up for the last 10 mins of the event and switched off again as soon as the heat finished. The sailors went straight up on stage for the prize giving. There was a clear winner in everyone’s minds and when Gollito was announced as the victor the crowd went wild! The guys looked like rock stars spraying their huge bottles of champagne all over the crowd. Also it was Brawzinho’s 19th Birthday so he was presented with cake which obviously ended up in his face!
The guy on the surf board is Chico Bento, a local kid from Jericoacoara in Brazil. He is famous for Capoeira Dancing. He wowed the crowds each day and night with his incredible displays of flips and spins, almost like he’s on his freestyle board. He definitely takes some of his Capoeira style in to his freestyle.
