Another victory, another incredible moment
Some days before leaving to Rio, I come back from Indonesia with my family and we spend nice days in Europe. A long flight Denpasar-Amsterdam-Paris-Bordeaux. One night in France then just one day fo rest. Then on Saturday, Magdalena and I both fly to Lisboa (Portugal) for PLC’s wedding day. Our plane is late and a huge traffic jam from the airport to the beach could make us miss the event. Fortunately, we arrive at the ceremony just five minutes before the bride … and we spend a fantastic sleepless night with our friends. Back to Bordeaux on Sunday, we really need to sleep and to rest a little bit to forget the jetlag from Bali. As soon as we recover, it is time to leave to Rio for the 1st step of the 2015 APB Tour.
After my first victory in 2013 and my 3rd place in 2014, I celebrate this event with all my supporters. The beach break at Nitoroi closed to the sleeping elephant rock is in good shape for the 2015 contest. Happy to be there with my family, Magdalena and Oliver and enjoying all the good vibes around for bodyboarding. During the comp, we live in a nice house, next to the beach, easy to cook, train, enjoy the family life before and during the contest.
This contest is really physical, tactical and as it is a beachbreak, the waves change at any moment so you have to be aware and always watch the ocean.
Brazil is a big nation of bodyboarders with strong passionate riders and big champions as Luis Villar, Paulo Barcelos, Guillerme Tamega or Uri Valadao than inspire me.
And it is a place where training and fitness are a real way of life. Thanks for the warm welcome and support. I will be back soon. Obrigado !
