Jessica Becker 

Brazilian Jessica Becker has won the 2009 Sopelana BBK Pro.

She defeated USA rider Roberta Bitzer in a hard fought final that saw Jessica get off to an early lead. Roberta came back with two srtong rolls to reduce the score to a 6.10 for a win but time was ran out and Jess walked away as Champion.

Jessica showed why she narrowly missed out on a world title last year with a polished display of bodyboarding in front of a massive Sunday afternoon crowd at Sopelana.

Jessica defeated local favourite Eunate Aguirre in the semi whilst Roberta disposed of Catarina Sousa (Portugal) with a late 9.5 in the second semi.

The crew now roll into Portugal for the Sintra Portugal Pro that starts on Tuesday.
