With the aim of keeping the athletes out of the recaps phase, the men’s events ended with the qualifications of Diogo Martins, Afonso Antunes and Joaquim Chaves, with only Guilherme Ribeiro ending up in the recaps by only one-tenth.

In the women’s category, no athlete managed to secure a place in the next round of the main room, with Francisca Veselko, Gabriela Dinis, Concha Balsemão, Mariana Garcia and Carolina Santos now having to face the recapture to try to stay in the race.

“Portugal had a bad day today and we were not very competent at the start of the ‘heats’ and it cost us, dear. At this moment only three athletes are in the main event. For the rest, correcting the mistakes of today, in the next ‘heats’ we will have more success, “stressed national surfing coach David Raimundo.

The competition, which brings together athletes of 44 nationalities, runs until November 4 in Huntington Beach, California.
