Maxime Castillo has taken out the Figueira EuroBodyboard 2014, in Figueira da Foz, Portugal.

The second and penultimate stop on the European Tour of Bodyboard (ETB) 2014 was run in four-to-six foot waves, at Cabedelo Beach.

Pierre-Louis Costes, who won the first stage in La Salie, finished the Portuguese leg in third position behind Miguel Adao, and ahead of Anas Haddar.

Castillo clinched the best wave and best heat total of the event, including a 10-point ride. In the final, the French rider collected 17 points.

"I am very happy for winning in Figueira. I loved surfing these waves, and to win the final against athletes of this caliber is absolutely fabulous," underlined Maxime Castillo.

In the Women's division, Teresa Almeida outperformed Teresa Duarte, Joana Schenker, and European champion Catarina Sousa in the final heat.

The final stage of the European Tour of Bodyboard (ETB) 2014 is the Morocco Bodyboard Pro, which will take place in the Mehdia beach break between 10th-12th October.
