RCPRO Peniche2010 Girls Fin Rip Curl Pro Search 2010Following the success of the Rip Curl Pro Search in 2009, Rip Curl is heading back down to Peniche in 2010, this year from the 7th to 18th October, to hold the 8th event on the world circuit (of 10)on the mythical shores of Portugal.
“We are very happy to be holding this event once again in 2010. We want to stage the event every year. It’s so encouraging to see how much the surfers, the media and the public appreciate the fact that the world’s best male and female surfers come to surf the waves of this great country. Along the coastline are some really excellent spots and unbelievable waves. We’re as motivated as ever to host the ASP Tour at Peniche once again, especially at the Supertubos spot. It’s a world-class wave that is certainly one of the best beach breaks in the world!” says Francisco Spinola, Marketing Manager for Rip Curl Portugal and the project coordinator.
Supertubos is a powerful wave that is fuelled by the long and deep swells coming from the Atlantic Ocean, which can reach up to 4 to 5 metres in height. Because it looks so similar to the Hawaiian Banzai Pipeline, many surfers have nicknamed this wave ‘the European pipe’. During the Rip Curl Pro Search in October 2009, the wave was pretty dangerous, guaranteeing not only some sensational surfing, but also some nasty injuries for some of the pro riders (including Owen Wright, knocked out in the semi-final).

Following the successful launch event in La Ciotat, France, the Rip Curl & Hawaiian Tropic Girls Tour 2010 is ready to turn up the volume in the UK this Summer. During the day at Fistral Beach on 10th/11th July and Boscombe Beach 13th/14th July, certified surf instructors will provide free surf lessons alongside Tahitian longboarder and Rip Curl icon Hanalei Reponty, while all new for 2010, a team of experienced female DJs will be on hand with complimentary DJ workshops, showing the budding surfers how to spin some tunes on the decks. The fun continues for everyone on the beach as the sun goes down on the first night of each tour stop as the internationally renowned DJ Elisa Do Brasil brings a touch of Brazilian heat with the ‘Sunset Sessions’, playing a sizzling mix of breaks and beats, as the crowd dance into the evening with warm sand between their toes. Speaking about the UK events, longboarder Hanalei said, “I’m really looking forward to the Girls Tour hitting Newquay and Bournemouth this year and kicking off the UK’s summer of surf. The girls who attend are always super stoked and I’m looking forward to sharing surf tips with them in the water, plus the addition of DJ lessons and live sets right on the beach from DJ Elisa Do Brasil will mean that we’re definitely bringing the party to Fistral and Boscombe this year.” The Girls Tour DJ and Surf lessons are 100% free and just for girls (over 15 years old) but as the sun goes down and the music gets turned up the concert is free for everyone to enjoy. To join in the fun before you head to the beach, go to the 2010 Girls Tour website which features cool musical gadgets, including a digital mixing deck where you can mix Hawaiian Tropic’s sounds (like the ukulele, or crashing waves), with Rip Curl’s rock rhythms (electric guitar, drums). You can even create your own tunes, record them, and send them to your Facebook page to obtain as many votes as possible! The highest scoring entries can win all sorts of prizes including a weekend away with the girls to one of the tour stops.

“DIVAS SKATERAS” is an group of girl skaters that live in different parts of Brazil and connect through the Internet. The group was started in 2006 by Estefania Lima, who didn’t have any other girls in her city to skate or talk about skateboarding with. So, she decided to create this group.
The group grew quick and she decided to make a video with the tricks of her internet friends. She started collect images of the girls in 2007 and made the first video became really with the participation of 13 girls of 7 different states of Brazil.
After the first video, many other girls searched for Estefania on the Internet and asked about another video, because they also wanted to see their tricks in a skatemovie. So, Fania started collect images again and got the help of Lua Marinho, a skater girl who has a very good ability to edit movies. The second video had the participation of more than 60 skatergirls of 12 different brazilian states and approximately 30 minutes of pure female skateboarding. The intention is show girls skating and includes girls of all skill levels. They hope the video is to incentive for girls to skate and make new friendships.
Felicity Palmateer (Hillarys) made WA history by being the first female to make a Pro Junior final at state level.
As well as that, Felicity’s impressive run of form continued after her back to back ASP Chill Pro Junior wins at Trigg Beach just two weeks ago.
The seventeen year old was simply too good in the Open Women’s division, outclassing her opposition with a methodical display on the long running left hand waves. Palmateer secured back to back Open Women’s State Titles wins at Margaret River and Rottnest Island.
The 2010 State Title adds to her remarkable results in 2010 which see her positioned to make a mark on female surfing in the years to come. Palmateer defeated April Kara (Dunsborough) who was solid in second place, Erin Eames (Gerladton) finished third, ahead of Jessica Lickel (Dunsborough) in fourth, with Dimitra Carter (Geraldton) in fifth position.
