P.S: Don't ever forget: RESPECT NAZARÉ!
After 14 days of waiting, Praia do Norte didn’t scam the expectations of the more than one thousand people that went to the beach to watch the fourth edition of Sumol Nazaré Special Edition.
Mike Stewart was the big winner of this edition, in a podium where the international presences had eminence. The athlete was very “surprised, and, at the same time, happy for winning this contest in the first time competing”. The Brazilian José Otávio won the second place. “I’m very happy for the second place in a contest with such a high level”, he said. The third place was given to Jaime Jesus, considered the best Portuguese in the contest.
After some qualm of some athletes due to the initial sea prediction, the stormy waves of the day before were replaced by a sunny day that allowed an excellent show of air maneuvers, huge drops and even some impossible tubes.
Luís “Porkito” Pereira surfed an unforgettable wave that was punctuated with ten points. The athletehas done a 360º inside a tube, followed by a huge invert air. Porkito won the last two editions and showed all his courage and determination, although he got the seventh place in the contest.
Although Mike Stewart didn’t have any extraordinary maneuver, the athlete showed big regularity during the entire contest, reason why he took the first place back to Hawaii.
The organization considers that this fourth edition was a big success in what concerns to public affluence, not only local presences at the beach but also through webcasting at the website.
