Kate Brandi takes the win in the women’s division in Brazil
Stop 2 of the Women’s 2013 Stand Up World Tour event proved a huge success, as athletes from the US, UK, Spain and beyond matched up against the very best in Brazil, for an exciting elimination of women’s action. As expected, current World Ratings leader Nicole Pacelli was on great form, making it all the way to the final, but had to submit to the critical surfing of last year’s winner, Kate Brandi who went onto win the event.
Meanwhile, much to the delight of the local crowd, in 3rd place, Ubatuba local Aline Adisaka made the podium at Stop 2 after her 5th place finish at the Turtle Bay Women’s Pro, followed by Iballa Moreno (Starboard) from the Canary Islands in Spain in 4th.
