Sunning Fun for Stop #1
The team aligned in Sununga for the first stop of the United Skim Tour for 2016. Our healthy crew of Brazilian riders were on hand to do battle with the World. Riders from Portugal, the US, Mexico and more took on Sununga. Blair Conklin and Perry Pruitt did battle in the Semi's to see who would match up against Renato or Pablo Marreco, and the local legend Renato Lima showed his knowledge of the home break and would meet Blair in the Final. Renato and Blair dove into an epic battle, but it seemed like Renato's timing and wave selection were truly in tune this week, and he was able to stabilize a solid lead and make it tough for Blair to catch up. Congratulations to Renato for his first win at Sununga, and a well earned congratulations to Blair Conklin for his runner up finish. Blair has now made the final every year at Sununga, no easy task and something to be admired. Below are pictures from our Brazilian distributor, and one of our go to photographers, Andre Magarao. Thanks to Marcos Castaluber for putting on an epic first event to the year!
