Portuguese bodyboarder Joana Schenker has made it back to back titles after winning the 2015 Miss Sumol Cup at the weekend.
Held in solid 3-4 foot conditions at Praia da Costa Nova, Portugal, Schenker proved too good in her final against Teresa Almeida, Catarina Sousa and Mariana Machado.
The defending champion finished with a combined score of 14.5 to finish more than four points clear of second place and take the title once more.
Schenker then backed up her amazing performance with a win at the Sumol Cup’s European tour contest, narrowly beating out Catarina Sousa in the final.
“I’m stoked with this great result!” Schenker said.
“The Miss Sumol cup is my favourite event, it’s really well organized and the waves are always good. This years we had good waves all the days and I was super motivated.
“The win on the National tour was important because it helped me to get back in the title race. Also the win on the European event was really a big step to get a good lead on the tour.
Before the events I knew how important it was to do well in both, I just didn’t think I would turn out so well.”
