Epicentre.tv is excited to present the APB Sintra Pro featuring the world’s best bodyboarders attempting to conquer one of the best waves in the world!
Sintra is back for the 23rd edition of the oldest uninterrupted event on the Bodyboarding World Tour, the Sintra Portugal Pro, in Praia Grande. Organized for the first time by the Sintra’s Coast Bodyboarding and Surfing Association (ABSCS). As always, this prestigious event is supported almost entirely by the Sintra municipality and under the ever watchful guidance of Roman Alvarez, the hand at the helm of this event since day one, twenty years ago.
The first event of the european leg of this APB World Tour distinguished itself through out the years for being the launch ramp for some of the best portuguese riders ever to have competed on the world tour. Names like Hugo Pinheiro, Manuel Centeno, Rita Pires and Catarina Sousa just to name a few, tested their mettle against the world’s best for the first time in Praia Grande, a challenging, ever changing beach break.
So, fun waves, lots of sun, beautiful bikini clad beauties, wonderful natural landscapes and historical heritage, Sintra has a lot to offer and it certainly is going to be an awesome bodyboard festival.
