- 23 August 2009 | Bodyboarding
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 strong 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.
