WOMEN’S EVENT – Brazilian surfer Gabriela Leite (15) won the first Billabong Pro Junior event in Peru last year, and now did the same, winning again this year in Chile. “Another victory outside Brazil, i am very happy, and now i hope to get a spot in World Pro Junior next year because last year i was out. This was a great event, in the beginning I was with a little fear because of the big waves, but today the waves were fun and perfect to surf. Now my goal is go to Brazil and confirm my spot in the World Pro Junior in Australia next year” said Gabriela.
In second place was the surfer from Peru, Valeria Sole (16), who promised to compete in Brazil in the next two events. “I didn’t find the best waves and i fell a lot, so lacked a bit of experience for me, but anyway I will go confident to the next events in Brazil” said Valeria, who finish in fourth place last year in Peru.
