Leco Salazar storms to victory at 2013 Ubatuba Pro Brazil

Global Partner

After 3 days of intense action here at Itamamabuca Beach in the beautiful region of Ubatuba Brazil, Leco Salazar storms to victory here at the Ubatuba Pro Brazil in a star studded fleet to secure the win at Stop 2 of the 2013 Stand Up World Tour.

After narrowly advancing out of Semi final number 1, Leco got on a roll during the final, finding the right waves in a tricky line-up to post a string of scores in the excellent range and secure the all important win at home in Brazil.

This is his 3rd World Tour win here in Brazil out of the 4 years we have been down here and 4th win on the Tour as a whole, demonstrating not only his supreme expertise in Brazilian beach break conditions, but also his ability to perform in front of the home crowd.

Caio Vaz posts a great result here in Brazil, finishing in 2nd

Caio Vaz (Art in Surf) fires all cylinders at the Ubatuba Pro Grand Slam, reaching the Final and finishing in second place behind 2012 World Champion and fellow Brazilian, Leco Salazar. Posting some of the highest scores of the event with fluid and critical surfing, Caio Vaz was definitely one of the stand outs at the event and this 2nd place finish boosts him into 2nd place in the overall World Rankings after stops 1 & 2.

Justin Holland steps up at stop 2 of Stand Up World Tour

Justin Holland (Starboard) was one of the on form surfers last year on the Stand World Tour as a whole, but in particular at last year’s event here in Brazil. This year proved no different, as he put on a solid display of performance surfing winning one of the toughest semi final heats in Stand Up World Tour history featuring Maui’s Kai Lenny (Naish), Brazil’s Leco Salazar and the American, Sean Poynter (Starboard).

Unable to find the waves he wanted in the final, but nonetheless driving full speed into some critical closeout sections, Justin is definitely a surfer to watch out for this year as he starts his campaign to bring the World Title to Australia.
