Men's event running on Buzios and the best riders gave a good show to everyone that appeared on Geriba Beach to support.
Mike Stewart and Guilherme Tamega were the best bodyboarders on second day and both advanced to quarter finals.
Guilherme did a great job with a 9,25 in his best score and Mike also got good waves on his heats.
With these results, both are still fighting for world title.
Today the conditions were very good with 6-8 feet plus waves on Geriba Beach.
“The conditions are pretty strong. I had some difficulties because I choose to get only good waves. I’m very happy to advanced but I’m only thinking in my next heat. When I enter in a contest I always try to do my best heat by heat”, said Mike.
The Brazilian Hellinton Loureiro had the best score with a perfect 10. He also got a 8,25 in the same heat and made the best result of this event: 18,25.
Tomorrow the girls will debut on event and the 1st and 2nd rounds should happen.
Neymara Carvalho and Eunate Aguirre will compete and both have real good chances to win in Buzios.
The check in will happen at 8:00 and the predictions are very good for Saturday.
