Gony Zubizarreta and Vasco Ribeiro were QS 1000 Caparica Pro best two surfers with a new Semente surfboard model under their feet.
Our team riders showed the world high quality surfing. The Spanish surfer living in Ericeira was crown the champion and Vasco Ribeiro finished in 2nd place.
“QS 1000 Costa de Caparica event was very important both for these surfers and me as a shaper,” said Nick Uricchio.
“It has been a constant challenge to work with these top athletes and it’s rewarding to watch their evolution and stoke. The hard work we’ve been doing ended in a great result for both. They surf differently and finding a surfboard that works well with all our team riders is something special. Gony surfed with a 5.8″ while Vasco chose a 5.10”, both with a squash tail. We tried this new board that is balanced and very fast in small and mellow waves allowing the surfer to have a quick recovery. We’re stoked to have reached a new level of excellence with this model.”
Gony and Vasco’s work with shaper Nick Uricchio in this event had the best possible result. The new board is designed to take full advantage of small waves and will be launched soon.
