The 5 week / 5 event European Leg is all locked in for August / September and is shaping up as the most lucrative leg of the Tour with over US$150,000 up for grabs!!
Make sure that you book your Chile / Europe tickets for the evening of the 9th August as the change over to Viana will be super tight.
Viana is celebrating the 15th Anniversary of the IBA World Tour event (Back then it was GOB) when Stewart and Tamega were fighting for the title and not much has changed with both guys sitting 1 & 2 on the current IBA ratings.
The crew at Viana have an awesome program lined up so make sure that you start off your "Euro leg" at this amazing event (only for Men only at this stage*).
Gonzaga has the support of BBK Bank and Moviestar and Solepana will once again be hosting a Mens & Women's event. This event is always super fun and well run so make sure that you make the trip to Sopelana.
From Sopelana its back to Sintra for the Grand Slam. This is the biggest and most professional event in the World and with double points up for grabs this is one event that you don't want to miss!! The carnival atmosphere and super structure is something that every bodyboarder deserves to experience at least once in their career.
The girls will then head off for the Miss Sumol Cup (Regional WWT) and the Men will take off to Ferrol (Men's WMT) before the Tour wraps up with a brand new event at Supertubos in Peniche'.
An insane 5 week Tour that bounces between Spain and Portugal so don\'t miss a minute of this action packed leg.

Aug 12th – 16th Viana Pro Portugal Mariana Beach, Viana
Aug 18th – 23rd Sopelana BBK Pro Spain Sopelana
