Salinas is a little bit special for Macho Fins, as it marks one year since we first put up the Macho Fins stand (in the middle of a gale, we’ll never forget!). This year we decided to enjoy the atmosphere and focus on supporting our riders competing in what is undoubtedly Spain’s most important longboard festival, rather than setting up our stand - and it was great to relax and be able to watch all the action in the water. Some great heats for both Kat Barrigao and Jefson Silva, and some stiff competition in the semis, but no problem for these guys, who sailed through to the finals with Kat getting a hard fought 2nd place in the women’s longboard final, and Jefson fending off some stiff competition for 1st place in the men’s final – for the 3rd consecutive year. Congrats to both of you, and thanks for the spectacle!
