BEHIND THE SCENES: Circuito Carioca Event #3

BEHIND THE SCENES: Circuito Carioca Event #3
(dual-sanctioned as FEBBRJ state tour event #5)
Secreto, Praia da Macumba, Rio de Janeiro, Brasil
November 16th-17th, 2013



DAY ONE OF COMPETITION:

The Secreto mural.

Competitors gathered on a perfect beach day at Praia da Macumba for day one of competition.


Another great contest set-up for the Circuito Carioca!

Venezuelan Alejandra Altuve was in attendance for Event #3.

The EBC bodyboard school took the Surf Bus from Copacabana to Macumba to watch day one of competition.

Mmmmm, acai with granola for breakfast...bom dia!

The guys from Fisio Sport were on hand and hard at work as always.

Up in the Judge's Booth, all eyes were on the action out in the water.

Mmmmm, cuscuz de coco...so good!

Paramedics were on stand-by to tend to everything from rock cuts to sprained ankles during the event.

DAY TWO OF COMPETITION:

A bunch of the competitors decided to camp out overnight.  The contest site resembled a refugee camp on Sunday morning!

Time to get the rescue ski out in the water and place the contest bouys.

Day two of competition resembled something out of Jurassic Park complete with fog, gusting winds and torrential rain squalls passing through all day.

Competition Jerseys.

I can honestly say that this is the first time I have ever seen vultures on the beach during a competition...kind of creepy!

Beach Marshals Steve Jackson and Sandro Barros at the end of day two.  Our job is done here!
